Is there a UFO coverup to be found in material that has been released by the WikiLeaks organization? In the scandal that has now come to be known as Cablegate, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange suggests the answer is yes, and UFO cables may be published soon. Assange is currently in hiding as he faces death threats and an international arrest warrant for sexual assault charges. However, Assange found time to participate in an online Q&A hosted by The Guardian, a popular left leaning newspaper in the United Kingdom.
When asked by a questioner whether or not any documents concerning UFOs had passed to WikiLeaks, Assange had a less than flattering reply:
“Many weirdos email us about UFOs or how they discovered that they were the anti-christ whilst talking with their ex-wife at a garden party over a pot-plant. However, as yet they have not satisfied two of our publishing rules.
1) that the documents not be self-authored;
2) that they be original.
However, it is worth noting that in yet-to-be-published parts of the cablegate archive there are indeed references to UFOs.”
So there you have it. Based upon Julian Assange’s own comments, there are references to UFOs in the unpublished portion of the WikiLeaks cables. What form they take is unknown, and the tone of Assange’s comments is clearly dismissive of whatever does exist.
Nonetheless, their presence will surely provide fodder for UFO conspiracy theorists. Exactly when the UFO material and other remaining files will be released remains to be seen, though Assange’s final salvo in the web Q&A provides some hint about an answer:
“The Cable Gate archive has been spread, along with significant material from the US and other countries to over 100,000 people in encrypted form. If something happens to us, the key parts will be released automatically. Further, the Cable Gate archives is in the hands of multiple news organisations. History will win. The world will be elevated to a better place. Will we survive? That depends on you.”
Translation: arrest me on suspicion of rape and I’ll release more documents. What a paragon of journalistic integrity. Assange’s responses to more challenging questions were belligerent and non-substantive. When asked about the chilling effect his activities may have on international diplomacy, Assange wrote “If you trim the vast editorial letter to the singular question actually asked, I would be happy to give it my attention” (the attention was never given in subsequent responses).
