    The distinction Dershowitz makes between the Pentagon Papers and the Amat Kam affair is that the PP's were published after the conflict, and the Amat Kam affair during the conflict. This is a lie. In 1971 the USA was still in the Vietnam war. Many more Americans would die in that war from then until the end. Hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese and Cambodians were yet to be burnt alive by Nixon's final bombing campaign. By comparison, few Israelis are at actual risk of dying from the Palestinians. Israel is not at war with the Pals. The Pals don't have an army. The disclosure of Israel's assassination campaigns and brutal torture regime would be embarrassing, but not damaging because the Pals lack any ability to respond. Compare that to the Vietcong, which had fighter planes, SAM missiles, and a legion of skilled Guerrilla fighters.
