"We’re hoping to determine what kind, but at this point we just don’t know," Segelson said.

The eyeball is being preserved and will be delivered to the agency’s research lab in St. Petersburg, where it’s hoped an official identification can be made.

It's not like we don't have half a clue who actually "owns" the Federal Reserve, but we just wanted to know, superficially, who the Fed itself claims it is owned by (and, additionally, how the agency justifies its unchecked power). Apparently the agency never officially answers that question. See for yourself in the video above. Source: truthstreammedia.com
