Hi Aaron,

Would it be possible to get a digital copy of the attached report as requested in this FOIA (see attached)? Per the cover letter (also attached), it was released without any redactions, but was sent in paper rather than digital format, and many of the figures and illustrations are difficult to decipher.

Thank you!

We also only received it in paper copy. So the attached is probably as best as we can do (and what will be posted to our reading room).
