The man behind the leaking of the Pentagon Papers and the inspiration of the current hit film "The Post" urges U.S. officials to leak top-secret documents on North Korea now to avert war and not wait "until the bombs have fallen" like he did.

"I would encourage people who now know that we are being encouraged to go to war with North Korea on false pretenses – basically what the prospects really will be and what the consequences will be – I tell them don't do what I did," Dr. Daniel Ellsberg told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "Don't wait years until the bombs have fallen. Don't wait till thousands have died.

"Consider doing what I should have done much earlier than I did, and that is going to the Congress and the press directly with documents and files that will show the truth to the public."

Ellsberg, a notable figure in "The Post" who leaked the Pentagon Papers, is author of "The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner."

He told host John Catsimatidis he regrets not leaking the Pentagon Papers sooner so he could have prevented the Vietnam War before it began.

"In fact, before the war began, in 1964, I had the 1964 top secret documents in my safe in the Pentagon," Ellsberg told Catsimatidis.

"I could've given Congress documents even before the Tonkin Gulf Resolution passed. . . . I could have undermined that fraud with documents as early as August of 1964."
