Just days after the shocking U.S. presidential election, Secretary of State John Kerry became the highest-ranking U.S. government official to ever set foot on Antarctica (although there are rumors President Obama made a secret visit there earlier this year). This visit came just a few weeks after Wikileaks released a large set of photos from Antarctica. Does this mean that there’s worldwide cover-up of UFOs in Antarctica? Let’s see how some people connected the dots to reach that theory.

The Secretary of State landed in Antarctica on November 11th. This was leg 2 on a multi-stop trip that started in New Zealand and included a stop at the international climate change meetings in Marrakech, Morocco, where Kerry was to speak on the dangers of global warming. The five-hour flight to Antarctica on a C-17 Globemaster military cargo plane had Kerry mysteriously spending most of his time in the cockpit. Sure, he’s a pilot but doesn’t the plane have windows for him to look out of? Was he giving the pilots secret directions?

Where is Kerry walking to?

After landing on the Pegasus Ice Runway at the U.S.’s McMurdo Station, Kerry toured by helicopter the McMurdo Dry valleys, which are considered to be as close to the environment of Mars as any place on Earth (coincidence or plans for Mars trip?). He also saw the mysterious red glacier known as Blood Falls and the hut where the famous Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton (the Shackleton crater on the moon is named for him - coincidence?) lived in 1908. While he didn’t report any UFOs or aliens, Shackleton was in Antarctica at the time of the Tunguska event and was said to have seen displays of aurora lights both before and after the event.

Kerry got to see things that are banned from the public view due to the newly-signed (October 28, 2016) agreement to make the Ross Sea the world’s largest marine protected area, blocking ships without permission from entering the area for 35 years. Fortunately, Wikileaks mysteriously released a set of 23 photographs of various locations in Antarctica on October 18th as part of its John Podesta-related leaks. They seemed to be more scenic than expository (although one appears to show a UFO and another a mysterious fog) and a couple are suspected to be from someplace other than Antarctica.

The photos were numbered and a couple of numbers appeared to be missing. Could these have shown the long-rumored evidence (purportedly in Wikileaks' possession) of a secret war between the U.S. and UFOs based on the floor of the waters around Antarctica – the very same waters now protected by the new agreement?

And there you have it! Kerry visits top secret locations in Antarctica, after a new (and not yet universally trusted or UFO-savvy) U.S. president is elected, to assess the war against UFOs and secretly share the info with other nations in Morocco. Throw in Antarctic photos from Wikileaks to John Podesta – who promised to open the UFO files if Hillary Clinton was elected – and you have all the makings of an Antarctic UFO conspiracy and cover-up.

Or maybe Kerry really IS concerned about the environment and is trying to save what’s left of the slowly-melting formerly-pristine world of Antarctica.

Which do you think it is?
