The SciFi Channel is spearheading a drive for a government investigation into unidentified flying objects. Channel President Bonnie Hammer said scientists conclude that up to 10 percent of UFO reports can't be explained by natural or artificial causes. The SciFi Channel is pushing for the declassification of government information through the Freedom of Information Act, as well as research into the phenomenon. Georgetown University law professor and science fiction fan John Podesta said Americans want to know what information the government has on UFO's. The former White House Chief of Staff said the public can handle whatever information is out there.
