Perusing the twenty-six volumes, we found accounts of what was seen and heard in Dealey Plaza mentioned nowhere in the Warren Report. The process was slow and laborious, Uke learning the names and locations of numerous extras on a huge movie set. Though the FBI could easUy have made a complete compUation whUe memories were still fresh, this was not done. Oonsequently, the historical record was pitlfully incomplete.
