WikiLeaks may be prompting embarrassment in embassies across the world right now, but it could soon have us all looking to the skies. Founder Julian Assange has confirmed that parts of the as-yet-unpublished remainder of the cable documents passed to the site does make reference to UFOs, though he’s not saying what, exactly, the confidential files are claiming.
“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.” Julian Assange, founder, WikiLeaks
It’s been a week of extraterrestrial rumor, what with NASA’s teasing press release in the run up to yesterday’s revelations about arsenic-based lifeforms. We doubt the documents in Assange’s possession detail anything quite so impressive as changing the definition of life as we know it, though; WikiLeaks would probably have pushed those files out first, were it the case.
