What Ellsberg discovered is that some of these “others” are military people who are concerned that they too could be hit in a decapitating strike. So they also have the authority to delegate.
In fact, no one, perhaps not even the president, nor his circle of advisors, knows who can launch the nuclear weapons.
Book cover and comment by Robert Steele below the fold.
In 1961, Daniel Ellsberg, a consultant to the White House, drafted Secretary Robert McNamara’s plans for nuclear war. Later he leaked the Pentagon Papers. A senior fellow of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, he is the author of Secrets and the subject of the Oscar-nominated documentary The Most Dangerous Man in America. He is also a key figure in Steven Spielberg’s film about the Pentagon Papers, The Post, and the winner of the Olof Palme Prize for profound humanism and exceptional moral courage. He lives in Kensington, California, with his wife, Patricia.
ROBERT STEELE: My email to John Walsh copied to Daniel Ellsberg…
I enjoyed your article and will be pointing to it from Phi Beta Iota Public Intelligence Blog on the 9th. Your article coincides with another today,
I’ll tell you what I decided after watching Dick Cheney enable the Zionist planning and execution of 9/11 and then watched Robert Mueller spend his entire tenure as director of the FBI obstructing justice and being an accomplish to murder after the fact (3,000+ counts of each).
We need two things before there is any possibility of making change such as you suggest or across any of hundreds of other issues including geoengineering, 5G as a weaponized telecommunications system, etc:
#UNRIG – Election Integrity Act to terminate the embedded corruption our President has clearly identified — the system is rigged — every part of the system is rigged — and only a reinstatement of an educated engaged public with full transparency will unrig the system.
Open Source Agency to reset the gold standard on truth in public education, secret intelligence, and both open and secret research.
I’d be glad to have the conversation if you wish, otherwise I wish you well, thank you for a great summary review, and will hope for the best going forward.
With best wishes,
Robert David Steele
