This is a fun one… well, maybe sorta kinda perhaps….
It seems that, according to Wikileaks, there’s some sort of “UFO war” taking place over Antarctica (eat your heart out Admiral Byrd-Nazi Antarctica Flying Saucer Research Base advocates!):
The problem here, as so often in reports of this nature, is that first of all the links in the article lead one on a wild goose chase, and ultimately, back to promises from Wikileaks that seem never to have been actually fulfilled. My suspicion meters about this story entered the red zone almost as soon as I started reading it, but really triggered the general quarters claxons with these offerings:
“It is said that Julian Assange has been falsely accused of sexual assault charges by authorities in Sweden which resulted in his arrest in Great Britain. That one of his accusers, Anna Ardin, has fled and is presently in hiding, among the Palestinians, is a strong indication that the charges, according to those familiar with government tactics, a ploy to silence Assange’s evidence.
“There is a very curious and questionable history of naval involvement and lost aircraft over the Antarctic continent that compels us to study further. I will pursue this controversy further in a soon to follow article.”
Now, I have to confess, I am one of those who was suspicious of the whole Wikileaks thing almost as soon as it began. It struck me then, and strikes me still, that one way to be sure you can plant some really disinforming disinformation and have it readily gobbled up is to do precisely what Assange did: start a website for whistleblowers and classified documents dumps, put out enough good information to get people hooked, and then, when that happens, plant the disinformation, then conveniently disappear, or impeach the source.
That said, I am quite open to the possibility that there is something going on up there, and perhaps even down there, and that it may involve UFOs and a bit of shooting. Indeed, for those familiar with Ufology, there is a great deal of evidence that the shooting has been going on for a long time, and, if some Ufologists who have researched the matter extensively are correct, there may have been some shooting back. But that’s the point: these conclusions are reached by researchers, not by promises of “documents to come.” It seems to be the “story of a story” deliberately designed to provoke the memory of Admiral Byrd’s warning in the El Mercurio newspaper of Santiago, that the USA had to prepare against enemy fighters that could fly “from pole to pole with tremendous speed.”
I’d be the first to welcome the release of legitimate documents concerning UFOs and Antarctica. I’d even welcome the full exposure of the legitimate documentation concerning Operation High Jump, but I’m not holding my breath in either case.
See you on the flip side.
