Embattled whistleblower Edward Snowden has claimed that he was unable to find any evidence of extra-terrestrials or UFOs in secret government databases he reviewed. As The Hill reports:
Whistleblower Edward Snowden said that he searched databases before he left his job as a contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) and found no evidence that the government was hiding the existence of aliens.
“I know you want there to be aliens,” Snowden told Joe Rogan during an interview for the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast released Wednesday. “If we are hiding them — I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, CIA, military, all these groups — I couldn’t find anything. If it’s hidden, and it could be hidden, it’s hidden really damn well especially for people on the inside.”
He also said “there probably are aliens,” but dismissed conspiracy theories that the government is hiding their presence from the American public.
During the interview, Snowden also detailed his time as a contractor for the NSA. He left the agency in 2013 and leaked thousands of documents to journalists outlining the government’s surveillance of American citizens through their internet use and phones.
Snowden’s remarks are quite interesting but they raise the question of just how much access he really had to secret government files.
