AUSTIN, Texas - The complete Pentagon Papers were made available to the public on Monday, exactly 40 years after leaked portions of the top-secret report on US involvement in Vietnam were first published by the New York Times.

"There will probably be no smoking guns in this material, but for the first time it will be seen as it was created," Regina Greenwell, a senior archivist at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, told reporters.

"That is new -- looking at it in all its original form and in all its context."

The documents, stamped "declassified" in red, were wheeled out on a cart and unveiled at a news conference at the LBJ Library in Austin, one of several places where researchers can now view them.
