WikiLeaks and UFOs [REDUX]

We have gotten a few comments recently for our 2007 post (here at this blog) about WikiLeaks and UFOs, which may be read via this link (to our earlier effort):

Wikileaks and UFOs [2007]

WikiLeaks is back in topical conversation among media persons and at media sites.

We find WikiLeaks (and its founder, Julian Paul Assange) to be intriguing, somewhat dangerous, and revolutionary in a way.

If WikiLeaks can provide government documents that disclose government and military materials that help explain the UFO mystery, we're all for it.

It's when WikiLeaks makes public documents and procedures that open the U.S. military to vulnerabilities by its enemies is where we part ways with WikiLeaks.

That said, we're all for transparency and open war on governmental secrets that keep the public ignorant of things that impact them in significant, existential ways.

More about this upcoming here and at our other venues.....

  • Steven Aftergood puts WikiLeaks in proper perspective at his blog, Secrecy News, which can be found here:

  • "If WikiLeaks can provide government documents that disclose government and military materials that help explain the UFO mystery, we're all for it."

    So far it hasn't, right?

    I'd doubt what came about anyway. As with any wiki, veracity is called into question - especially with THIS wiki. It wouldn't get us any closer to anything than all the data that exists out there now. It would be more paperwork for researchers to feud about while combing through the minutiae. Such disclosures would certainly give us a lot to talk about but we're still left without hard evidence. Until WikiLeaks delivers the para-goods, I'm going to say I can't say I see it doing much good for all the reasons outlined in the original post and more.

  • Cullan,

    You are right, of course, but one can hope can't one?

    If there are any documents that pertain, a disclosure would be grist for more rumination, and maybe even a denouement of some kind.

    (But I'm being foolish, right?)

  • Something about WikiLeaks makes my stomach queasy. There's just something not right about the enterprise and I can't put my finger on what it is or articulate why it makes me uneasy.

    I totally support openess in government and curtailing secrecy, but WikiLeaks has potential for doing enormous harm to individuals by way of nothing more than circumstantial evidence.

    Anyway, I wouldn't be looking for UFO disclosure from WikiLeaks because I suspect its founder has a very different agenda.
