Last Show Recap

UFOs & Govt. Documents

Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but the ship has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle joined Connie Willis (email) for all four hours to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the shipwreck and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy, and his quest to recover the it on his second attempt at the Republic.

UFOs & Govt. Documents

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - February 19, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: John Greenewald, Richard C. Hoagland

John Greenewald of the Black Vault discussed UFOs and government documentation & disclosure. Through his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, he has created the world's largest online database of US government documents. When filing such inquiries, the trick is to be neither too specific or too broad in the requests, he said, adding that one request took nine years to get a response. The US govt., he noted, has millions of documents, and often doesn't even know what it has.

In the recent Stephenville case, he filed a request to get the tower logs for every air base in the area (he typically asks for this type of information rather than directly mentioning UFOs). Though he has yet to receive a response, 48 hours after filing the request, the military issued their switched story about having jets in the area.

Greenewald said he received a stack of 100 pages from the Canadian government about UFOs which included reports of light balls, discs, and other aerial objects, up through the year 2003. The documents indicated that both commercial and Air Force pilots should report UFO activity to NORAD. This was also confirmed in a US Air Force manual, yet NORAD continues to claim that it stopped collecting UFO reports in 1965, he said. One of the newer features to the Black Vault is a user-contributed encyclopedia covering ufology and related issues.

In the latter portion of the interview, Greenewald offered reactions to callers accounts of UFO sightings.

Satellite Shootdown

In the second-half of the first hour, Richard C. Hoagland of the Enterpise Mission commented on the US' satellite shootdown mission which could take place on Wednesday. The plan to use a missile to explode the fuel tank of a failing spy satellite may be a cover story for the testing of new military technology, he speculated.
