Edward Snowden, the N.S.A. whistleblower, and at some point “the most wanted person in the world,” has recently revealed some new government secrets on the status of alien life.


In an interview with CNN, he opens up about extraterrestrial lifeforms and the most burning questions surrounding them. Conspiracy theories have long burned on social media platforms, especially Facebook and Twitter, about secret U.S. government operations involving aliens. Millennials even came together to plan a massive raid at Area 51 on September 20, 2019.


Area 51 is a well known United States Air Force facility in Nevada that has been widely inquired about and portrayed in movies. Due to natural curiosity, Snowden has done some top-secret research and is finally speaking up about the mysterious place.

According to the former employee of the CIA and contractor for the National Security Agency, the  government has no knowledge of any extraterrestrial life. “For the record, as far as I could tell, aliens have never contacted Earth, or at least they haven’t contacted US intelligence,” he said.  “But the idea that we’re hiding them — if we are hiding them — I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, the CIA, the military, all these groups. I couldn’t find anything. So if it’s hidden, and it could be hidden, it’s hidden really damn well, even from people who are on the inside.”

Snowden also cleared up some other popular conspiracy theories and jokingly concluded, “In case you were wondering: Yes, man really did land on the moon. Climate change is real. Chemtrails are not a thing.”
