The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was designed to give us the right to access otherwise inaccessible information from the federal government. Some information is readily available and some may be difficult to retrieve. But certain types of information have proven to be irretrievably lost by accident or by design. After more than 20 years of filing requests, John Greenwald still has difficulty navigating the complexities of the FOIA process. That has proved little hindrance in his acquisition of more than a 1.5 million pages documents exposing secrets concerning UFOs and the true story of Operation High Jump. This interview with George Noory was originally webcast September 21, 2016.
John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the young age of fifteen. Since then, he has accumulated an astonishing number of documents on topics related to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. Greenewald's online archive became known globally as "The Black Vault." His teenage project turned into the largest private online collection anywhere in the world, totaling nearly 1.5 million pages of material.
