If WikiLeaks didn’t already have the attention of the world’s conspiracy theorists, its founder Julian Assange grabbed the X-files crowd by their tin-foil helmet antennae in December, when he mentioned that the site plans to publish leaked cables that reference UFOs.

But after two months of allowing the UFO-obsessed to let their psychotic imaginations run wild, Assange may have put a damper on hopes that Area 51′s secrets will finally be exposed.

In the first of a series of video interviews posted Sunday that WikiLeaks is calling a “Live People’s Conference,” Assange answered questions submitted by the group’s’ fans. One, sent in by a Canadian named Pierre Brunet, asked about the upcoming UFO cable release. And Assange’s answer, which appears around 5:40 in the video below, may disappoint those who have been busy building alien landing sites out of their mashed potatoes.

WikiLeaks’ UFO-related material, Assange says, largely deals with the UFO cult group known as the Raelians, whose beliefs mix religion, sex, pseudo-science and alien mythology. State Department officials in Canada have expressed concern over the group’s influence there, citing a 2002 incidentwhen the group falsely claimed to have cloned humans.

 

 

Here’s the transcript of his answer to the question:

I have said in passing there is information about UFOs in Cablegate. And that is true, but these are only small passing references. Most of the material concerns UFO cults, and their behavior in recruiting people. For instance, there is quite a large cable, which we’ll try and release in the next few days, concerning the Raelians, a UFO cult which has a strong presence in Canada and was of concern to the U.S. ambassador in Canada. At that time, the Raelians claimed to have cloned an individual, and fantastically, the press all around the world ate this up and turned it into front page stories.

Dont see why you had to post this. From what I gather from previous post. You tend to poke fun at people's beliefs

How quickly "Truth" is discarded when it doesn't fit people's beliefs

I remember this incident quite well.

 

Over a period of several months, they were showing interviews on tele with this woman, cloneaid's PR chief, who tried to convince everyone that they had successfully cloned a girl.

Beliefs != Common sense. There's no credible scientific evidence to support alien life visiting our planet, let alone interacting with humans. If there's one thing the whole Snowden fiasco has shown, it's that nothing remains secret for long. If there was proof, we'd have it by now.

I believe there is alien life out there, some of it being intelligent, but there's just too much standing in the way of long term interstellar travel that I feel inhibits any kind of extraterrestrial life from visiting us on a regular basis.

So yet again Wikileaks beef up what they have then admit it is nothing, again.

 

So far from Wikileaks:

1. No proof Iraq war was for oil.

2. No proof of 911 being inside job.

3. No proof aliens.

4. No proof planning a war against Syria.

 

Please correct me if I am wrong. (Not a conspiracy website that has read a speculative comment in a cable and blown it out proportion)

And why do you say that ... ?

 

It's a very big planet, and not all 'evidence' is laying out in the open.

No proof of scientist being honest with their studies is another one for you ;) Human beings tend to play the role of a god and fail at it pretty bad lol
