  • New York Times V. United States
  • At the supreme court in Washington D.C.....
  • June 26, 1971
  • The United States will not allow you to release information that will hurt national security
  • The information we want to post does not put the United States at risk. It only outlines the history of U.S activities in Vietnam.
  • The Honorable, the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! All persons having business before the Honorable, the Supreme Court of the United States, are admonished to draw near and give their attention, for the Court is now sitting. God save the United States and this Honorable Court 
  • The New York Times would like to argue that our article does not endanger national security.
  • The United States would like to argue that the New York Times article would release key information to our war efforts in Vietnam that could hurt national security.
  • We feel strongly that our freedom of speech was violated because the Nixon Administration does not want the american people to know what happened in vietnam.
  • This is not about the Nixon Administration. It's about keeping the american people safe.
  • The court has decided that the United States has not overcome our heavy presumptions that they were censoring the press. We feel as if the word "security" should not be used to abrogate the fundamental law embodied in the First Amendment.
