Last summer, just days before a controversial report on unidentified aerial phenomena appeared online at the website of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Congress received a classified briefing on some of the details that were not included in the public report. That version of the UAP Task Force’s “Preliminary Assessment” remained unrevealed to the public… until now.

John Greenewald Jr. of The Black Vault, an expert on the use of the Freedom of Information Act, joins us this week to discuss how he was able to use this legal process to appeal for the release of the classified version of the government report on UFOs… and succeeded. We talk with John about what the new version of the report does, and does not reveal about the government’s investigations into aerial mysteries this week on The Micah Hanks Program.
