Assange reveals significance of Wikileaks UFO cables

Michael E. Salla, Ph.D.

Julian Assange with photoshopped UFO.

In the first of a series of “Live People’s Conferences” where Julian Assange directly responds to public questions about Wikileaks, he has clarified the nature of most UFO references in its yet-to-be-published diplomatic cables. Back on December 3, 2010, Assange raised expectations when he said in an interview in the Guardian newspaper that “it is worth noting that in yet-to-be-published parts of the cablegate archive there are indeed references to UFOs.” This led to many wondering whether an alleged U.S. government cover-up of UFOs and extraterrestrial life was going to be finally exposed. Indeed, one of the diplomatic cables released by the Norwegian newspaper, Aftenposten, referred to extensive funding for UFO research in the former Soviet Union. In his February 6 response to a question about UFOs, Assange revealed that the contents of the yet-to-be-published diplomatic cables largely dealt with the Raelian UFO cult and its claims of cloning.

In response to a question about releasing cables concerning UFOs, Assange said:

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.

The cable in question, yet to be published by Wikileaks itself as Assange said, in fact was released by the Norwegian newspaper, Aftenposten on January 4, 2011. It details the extent of U.S.concerns about the Raelian UFO cult, its cloning claims, and recruiting activities. The cable describes for example, Rael’s beliefs about the creation of humanity by extraterrestrials:


The diplomatic cable focuses on the possibility that the Raelians would use their cloning claims to recruit adherents in the U.S. After reviewing some of the beliefs of the Raelian’s founder, Rael, the cable went on to conclude:


Assange’s response lays to rest some of the rampart speculation about the extent of UFO reports in Wikileaks cables. For example, Michael Cohen from AllnewsWeb claimed on January 17:

A source from within the inner circle of the Wikileaks team has confidentially leaked to All News Web the content of a State Dept cable, concerning UFO affairs, that Wikileaks has declined to upload onto their website. The cable states: “It is critical all embassy staff understand that they are not to discuss under any circumstance concerns DOD has with UFOs entering orbit, once again the seriousness of this matter cannot be overstated.

According to Assange’s interview, it is safe to conclude that no such diplomatic cable exists of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) being concerned about UFOs entering earth’s orbit; or, at least, is not part of the diplomatic cables held by Wikileaks. If UFOs are a major headache for the DOD, as in fact evidence suggests is the case, then this would certainly be more highly classified than the Secret and Confidential files possessed by Wikileaks. According to researcher Timothy Good, such information is classified above Top Secret with “Need to Know” special access.

Similarly, a report in the European Union Times on December 13 revealed what its alleged confidential sources were saying were going to be released by Wikileaks:

A new report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared for President Medvedev by Russian Space Forces (VKS) 45th Division of Space Control says that an upcoming WikiLeaks release of secret US cables details that the Americans have been “engaged” since 2004 in a “war” against UFO’s based on or near the Continent of Antarctica, particularly the Southern Ocean.

Again, it can be concluded from Assange’s “Live People’s Conference” that no such references to a secret UFO war exists in the diplomatic cables held by Wikileaks.

It appears that if smoking gun documentary evidence of a government cover-up of UFOs and extraterrestrial life exists, such evidence has not yet come into the possession of Wikileaks. What can be expected in the weeks or months ahead for Wikileaks is the release of files documenting extensive UFO research by the former Soviet Union (already released by Aftenposten), and perhaps more references to public officials around the world interested in UFOs. None of the UFO references, according to Julian Assange, are of special significance and amount to little more than “small passing references.” So the wait continues for the release of documentation revealing the true extent of U.S. and international government knowledge of UFOs and extraterrestrial life.

Exopolitics: Stargate to a New Reality – Book Review

Paola Harris has dedicated over three decades to interviewing key witnesses and experts concerning extraterrestrial life, and an international government cover-up. In her newly released book Exopolitics: Stargate to a New Reality, she discusses nine protocols for extraterrestrial contact. The interviews and insights in her book will open the reader up to the grand possibilities confronting humanity as we collectively deal with the visitation of extraterrestrial life – a secret harder to keep due to the pioneering research work of Ms Harris. Her work in documenting whistleblower and experiencer testimonies has made her one of the founders of the new academic discipline of exopolitics which she believes is the key to forging a new international political reality.

I caught up with Ms Harris and asked why her book is important for the general public at this time? She referred to keen interest by a younger generation of researchers, and a number of noteworthy events that occurred in the latter part of 2010 in her reply:

This book is about “passing the baton to the youth.” One essay by Michael Vogt expresses fear at disclosure. Another by Jason Friend welcomes it. Even Travis Walton has mixed feelings about full disclosure. It has updated UFO news, i.e., The Denver Ballot Initiative, The Washington Press Club missile shutdown whistleblower press conference etc.

It’s worth pointing out that Exopolitics: Stargate to a New Reality is the fourth in a series of books documenting whistleblower and experiencer testimonies by Ms Harris. I asked her why whistleblower and experiencer testimonies were so important to document. She replied:

They make the field credible. Most are military and pilots and scientists working on Black Projects (first hand witnesses). They are in Chapter 3″ Tears in rain.” There is also a new unpublished Colonel Corso interview with a medical doctor in Colorado.

I asked her: “What are the most important challenges facing the world given the material in your book?” Ms Harris replied: “Transparency, and national security issues in a world racked with chaos, rebellion and transformational political and economic crises.” As we await revolutionary events to unfold in Egypt and other parts of the Arab world, it’s important to consider that a global event as momentous as an official announcement of extraterrestrial life, will likely take place alongside unpredictable social and political events around the world.

Her book title incorporates the word “exopolitics” which Ms Harris defines as “an academic study of the extraterrestrial presence on Earth and its sociological, as well as political, implications for humanity.” I wanted to know why the field of exopolitics was important for emerging into the new reality she describes in her book? She referred to the work of former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer:

The old order is shifting. This change needs to occur for our planetary survival as Paul Hellyer writes in his book: LIGHT at the END of the TUNNEL: a Survival plan for the Human Species. We are undergoing radical political changes and we must have something in place to substitute the old;  A New World View as Dr. John Mack called it. In the field of UFO Contact, it is an opportunity to enter into a cosmic reality, a galactic neighborhood; but only those educated in this field who can be diplomatic in their approach will be admitted. Education is the key.

Ms Harris book has been eagerly awaited by many seeking to learn more about the fascinating whistleblowers and experiencers she has interviewed over her long career. This and her three prior books are groundbreaking historical records of whistleblower and experiencer testimonies that will be studied closely by students and the general public for years to come. As we move closer to that day when the existence of extraterrestrial life is officially disclosed, Ms Harris book(s) will reveal much of the hidden history behind alien visitation and government efforts to suppress this from the public.

World business leaders told flying saucers are real & extraterrestrials exist

Michael E. Salla, Ph.D.

Graphic summary of GCF discussions by Sunni Brown reveals prominence of ET contact and new energy systems.

At five thousand dollars a ticket, some business leaders got more than they bargained for when they attended the first day of the Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) being held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They were told flying saucers are real, and they had better start thinking about the business implications of extraterrestrial life and technologies. Convened each year by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority, the GCF brings together business and political leaders to discuss ways of promoting business competitiveness. For the first time at its annual conference, the GCF held a panel discussing UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Titled “Learning from Outer Space” the panel comprised five speakers who all endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life is real, and has many implications for the world as we know it.

The panel was held on January 23, and was a “main plenary” session meaning all GCF participants were able to attend and hear what the experts had to say about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Up to 1000 participants included business and political elites such as former British and Canadian Prime Ministers, Tony Blair and Jean Chretien; Jim Albaugh, President and CEO of Boeing; Andy Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International; Jared Cohen, Director of Google ideas, and many others. The advice they got was that the issue of extraterrestrial life is real, and they better start paying attention to the business implications. Here’s how the GCF summarized the panel presentations on its website:

Learning from Outer Space – Panel
The unconventional and highly relevant topic of extraterrestrial life forms was addressed by yesterday’s panel discussion “Contact: Learning from Outer Space”. Experts Zoaghloul El-Naggar, Stanton Friedman, Michio Kaku, Nick Pope and Jacques Vallee made compelling cases for the existence of living beings elsewhere in the galaxy, drawing upon empirical evidence, religious theology and logical reasoning.
Mr. Friedman opened his remarks with a bold statement, “Flying saucers are real!” and this summed up the perspective of the panel members. Mr. Pope explored the potential business implications of outer space, such as the profitability of alien branding or sponsorship.
While El-Naggar was also convinced of their existence, he raised the interesting point that it may not be ethical to spend resources trying to contact alien societies when we still face war and poverty in our own society.
Mr. Vallee encouraged more academics to analyze the evidence. However, on behalf of his successful Venture Capital fund, he said, “We are not ready to invest in this type of research, but we think that somebody should.”

The 2011 GCF conference panel on Outer Space has opened the door for world business leaders to seriously consider the implications of evidence concerning UFOs and extraterrestrial life. A graphic summarizing GCF discussions by artist, Sunni Brown (top right), reveals the prominence given to issues of extraterrestrial contact and the overwhelming changes new energies will bring to humanity. Business leaders are poised to do what political leaders have so far failed to do – proactively deal with compelling evidence that we are being visited by galactic civilizations who have advanced technologies to share with humanity.
