However, the publications of the report that resulted from these leaks were incomplete and suffered from many quality issues. On the 40th anniversary of the leak to the press, the National Archives, along with the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon Presidential Libraries, has released the complete report. What is unique about this, compared to other versions, is that: All files in the "Title" column are in PDF format. Due to the large file sizes, we recommend that you save them rather than try to open them directly.
