Ellsberg, Swanson, Nader & Benjamin- On Iraq, Afghanistan, Manning & Wisconsin
The six-minute video, below, is a compilation of excerpts from the videos of the four speeches. The four original videos were recorded by Kevin Zeese and posted on YouTube by David.

I can read about ten times as fast as i can watch a video. A transcript is far more valuable. You know the old saying, so much to do, so little time? Well I’m 70.
Thanks for commenting, and for the suggestion. I agree that it takes much less time to read a transcript than it does to watch a video. Also, as you said, we all have so little time. I think, however, that many people like to watch a video, because it provides context, nuance, and feeling, all of which are difficult to convey in a transcript. I try to reach a balance on all this.
In the text of the article, I quote some key portions of the videos. I also indicate some phrases and sentences in bold, to make it easier for the reader to focus on important points. In presenting the videos, to save my readers time, I edited thirty-nine minutes of video down to the six-minute video that is included in the post. I linked to the full videos, for people who would like to view the full speeches.
Transcribing the videos would have taken an inordinate amount of time. I hope this balanced approach has worked well for most of my readers.
Thanks again for commenting. I do appreciate your input.
