What exactly were in the Pentagon Papers that made them so controversial? I read over a wikipedia entry, but it seems the entry glossed over what was in the Pentagon Papers or people during that time over-exaggerated what was in the Pentagon Papers and created extreme controversy where extreme controversy wasn't warranted. The wikipedia article was rather poor it seems and lacking in detail. Was it that the US government was lying about not wanting to expand the Vietnam War and then all the sudden, the Gulf of Tonkin resolution came up and could have possibly been orchestrated or provoked by the US government? Anybody know some reliable, solid sources that talks about the Pentagon Papers?
