CNN’s In the Arena asked me about it and you can find my answers, along with quotes from Nixon’s secretly recorded White House tapes, here.

On Monday, the 40th anniversary of the publication of the Pentagon Papers, a Top Secret Defense Department history of American involvement in the Vietnam War, the government will (finally) release a declassified version of all 47 volumes of the study.
