cold fjord writes: The Washington Post reports, "On Sunday, the hard-line semi-official Fars News dropped one of its biggest bombshells yet: The United States government has been secretly run by a "shadow government" of space aliens since 1945.
... The alien government is based out of Nevada and had previously run Nazi Germany. ... the controversial NSA programs are actually a tool for the aliens to hide their presence on Earth and their secret agenda for global domination. ... President Obama is said to be a tool of the aliens, though anti-alien factions within the U.S. government are fighting to topple him. Their present aim is to install a global surveillance system that will ... allow them to finally impose a one-world government and enslave humanity. The best part ... is the sourcing. ... The progenitor of it all, of course, is ostensibly NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who has waited until now to reveal that the real reason for all those NSA programs is aliens." ... there's also a more serious undercurrent here. A worldview that sees the U.S. as an evil hegemonic force so irrationally driven toward global domination that it must be run by space aliens is not a worldview that is predisposed toward negotiation or accommodation." — More at Forbes and Foreign Policy.
