The Pentagon Papers are now available for download.

The Pentagon Papers, officially titled ``Report of the Office of the Secretary of
Defense Vietnam Task Force``, was commissioned by Secretary of Defense
Robert McNamara in 1967. In June of 1971, small portions of the report were
leaked to the press and widely distributed. 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. There are 48 boxes and approximately 7,000 declassified pages.
Approximately 34% of the report is available for the first time.

What is unique about this, compared to other versions, is that:
  • The complete Report is now available with no redactions compared to
    previous releases
  • The Report is presented as Leslie Gelb presented it to then Secretary
    of Defense Clark Clifford on January 15, 1969
  • All the supplemental back-documentation is included. In the Gravel
    Edition, 80% of the documents in Part V.B. were not included
  • This release includes the complete account of peace negotiations,
    significant portions of which were not previously available either
    in the House Armed Services Committee redacted copy of the Report
    or in the Gravel Edition

As usual I will be seeding this one permanently or until I die, whichever comes last.
If you want to help me get this torrent started quickly go to archives.gov and start
downloading ONE from there, then when it's done stop your bittorrent app, dump it
into your Pentagon Papers download folder, rescan the files and start up again.

I started this torrent because the archive site is seriously overloaded so don't try to
download more than one file at a time from there.

Interesting Torrent, I'll download the content from the site over night, and try and seed on my 30kBps upload limit during the nights, when nobody is using the internet.

I have added a second, slimmer set of files:

It's only 1.34 GiB (1442490549 Bytes), and looks clear and
complete on first inspection so you might prefer it.

If TPB seems to show no seeders once in awhile don't worry.
Their seed/peer numbers are no longer accurate since they
shut down their own trackers and let everybody use others.
Seeding never stops on any of my shared files for any reason.
