Looking for Evidence of UFOs? Don’t Wait on WikiLeaks!

For many, the roguish Julian Assange and his controversial WikiLeaks organization have come to represent a sort of modern-day Robin Hood. Assange, the peculiar-looking and oddly charismatic anti-hero, arrived on the scene complete with a cast of incognito Merry Men, or perhaps in the 21st century we should call them "Meta Men," hip enough to rob from intelligence services and government databases, and thus provide that information to the media for release to the masses.

Among those in the communities of researchers probing the unexplained realms for some hidden semblance of meaning, Assange's allegations that information about UFOs might exist in some of the secret government cables he and his organization had planned to release inspired a glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, it appears here that the opposite has turned out to be the case; to-date, there has been far less less contained in the accessible cables pertaining to unidentified aircraft and aliens than we hoped for. Okay, let's be really honest here... according to The Guardian, to-date there has been nothing found about UFOs or aliens whatsoever within the documents presently available.

Though this may seem disheartening for many, it likely comprises one small part of the greater mystery that shrouds Assange and WikiLeaks. The inevitable turmoil that has plagued them since the release of what may be called "sensitive leaked documents" (according to which perspective you tend to subscribe to) has clearly hindered the group's operation. In no area is this more apparent than with Assange, whose operation and activities in weeks preceding his arrest had become more visibly hindered as the treat of capture and custody lingered.

Perhaps the end game was that there were no such documents pertaining to UFOs (which, among those of us following this fiasco in the Fortean communities, wasn't expected to be much in the first place). Instead, it had been a gambit Assange has hoped to execute merely with intention of evading capture... or at very least, prolonging the inherent inevitability. But just maybe, in the event that more cables appear in the near future (he has, after all, made references to other files released in the event that the WikiLeaks site goes down), there actually are references to unknown craft and, perhaps, "alien" beings which we simply have yet to see. Only time will tell whether this ends up being the case.
