Noory's guest this past Friday, a young guy named Greenewald, was one of the better UFO types he's had on-air in a long time. He's spent the last 17 years sending Freedom of Information Act requests to numerous government agencies about multiple subjects, but UFOs are his primary interest. He's accumulated over 700000 pages of data, all posted on his website "The Black Vault".
Why do I think he's good? First, the guy is a trooper, been doing this for over half his life. He also clearly understands the FOIA process. He's not one of those whinny nutjobs who say stuff like, "I wrote the White House asking for all their secret information on giants, but they didn't send me anything. They are covering something up." He talked about understanding why some documents can't be released, especially those whose release could affect the nation's security. He did allow the process could be frustrating, but he wasn't irrational about conspiracies and the like. Late in the interview, he made his best comment of the show when he talked about accepting the FOIA process was developed by the government, officiated by the government, and juried by the government. Bottom line, you have to learn their rules, understand those rules, and play by those rules. It's like understanding you can't run straight to second base in baseball when you hit the ball.
It was also refreshing to hear a guest who wasn't hyping a book/CD set and/or begging for money. In fact, everything this guy does is available to the public at no cost. What's not to like about "Free"?
