Julian Assange: “We have leaks about UFOs”




Julian Assange was interviewed by the readers of The Guardian newspaper, the so-called “international man of mystery”, a modern hero for many, public enemy #1 for others, questioned for his bizarre behavior (accused of s̳e̳x̳ual abuse and being an agent of the C̳I̳A̳) and in general the man of the moment answered the questions of this newspaper, which has been one of those entrusted with the cables from the United States embassies.
Australian journalist Julian Assange responded among other things to the selection and editing method followed at WikiLeaks together with his “associates” from the mainstream media. He said that an editorial team reviews the documents and writes the notes, accepting, to a certain extent, that outlets like The Guardian or El País have an influence on what and how the cables are published. Assange added that Wikileaks has not cost anyone their lives for its leaks. He was asked:
Have you ever been sent documents related to the subject of U̳F̳O̳s or a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s?
“Lots of freaks send us emails about U̳F̳O̳s or how they found out they were the antichrist while talking to his ex-wife at a garden party. However, they have not yet satisfied our publication criteria: 1) that the documents are not sent by the same author 2) that they are original.
“However, it is worth noting that references to U̳F̳O̳s do exist in the as yet unpublished cablegate files.”
Assange\’s response is quite ambiguous in this sense, he leaves it unclear whether he will publish these documents and he does consider them to be important, although when he mentions that they are from “cablegate” it can be deduced that they are cables from the embassies that talk about U̳F̳O̳s or a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s. Though of course it could be sightings of obscure Middle Eastern leaders or exotic types like Colonel Gaddafi.
A WikiLeaks document shows that former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown apparently attempted to intercede in the extradition to the United States of “U̳F̳O̳ Hacker” Gary McKinnon, the hacker who penetrated P̳e̳n̳t̳a̳g̳o̳n̳ files that allegedly revealed the presence of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ agents.
With respect to the figure of Assange, it is advisable to proceed with caution, before believing that he only seeks the good of humanity and transparency without quarter; Assange is yet another political player in a complicated strategic Game whose true interests and orchestrators do not reveal themselves on the surface. In this sense, the WikiLeaks documents on U̳F̳O̳s or ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳s can also be part of an agenda and a communication strategy aimed at influencing public opinion according to this veiled scheme.
