In the early 1950s, the Office of Scientific Intelligence at the CIA almost recommended that the UFO issue be elevated to the National Security Council and be tasked as an Intelligence Priority. However, the effort was aborted with the convening of the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel in 1952… but why?

Joining us to discuss this is Larry Hancock, a graduate of the University of New Mexico who earned his BA with honors, majoring in history, cultural anthropology, and education. Following service in the United States Air Force, his career in computer/communications and technology marketing allowed him the opportunity to become involved in and consult on strategic analysis and planning studies. Larry is now a member of the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU), and author of the book Unidentified: The National Intelligence Problem of UFOs.

“Following the collection of tens of thousands of sightings, investigation, and vetting of a core of truly anomalous unknown object reports, extensive statistical analysis, and physical science analysis,” Hancock says, “we are left with the simple likelihood that in a number of instances experienced and credible observers have indeed observed something very real. Real aerial devices which demonstrate capabilities (especially in the areas of propulsion, acceleration, and maneuvering) that are totally beyond existing technology.” We discuss the implications of Hancock’s extensive review of UFO data and documents on this week’s edition of The Micah Hanks Program.
