Context is everything.
A few weeks ago, there was an announcement. According to many BLOGs and tabloids, Mazlan Othman was to be appointed the UN “Alien Ambassador”.
The news traveled like fire around the web, but nobody stopped to read the Wired article’s fine print. The term in the Wired headline is Alien Ambassador and yet in the body, the correct term, Space Ambassador, is what it refers to. The press release was outed less than a week after the recent CNN disclosure by retired air Force personnel. And that act of disclosure (much of which has been circulating ont he web for years) came only moments after the release of Leslie Kean’s surprising best-seller, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. So the newswire is piggy-backing on itself.
In all probability, this article is closer to the truth, but one can’t dispute the strange juxta-positioning (sorry non Uni graduates – I need to get the most out of my $20K education and use big words like that from time to time) of stories.
Here’s the sad and boring reality of what the UN Space Ambassador’s job will be.
Yeah, ho hum. I forgive you if you hit pause and save some bandwidth (remember to reload the page for that).
However, this is a UFO site and people, I’m a believer in UFOs, so I’m not here to disappoint you with reality and trivial media hiccups. So I’ve found this link to the UN Office of Outer Space Affairs (OOSA) to whet your appetite.
You’ll notice that the timing, ahem – contextually (Kaching! Another $50 on my BA well spent) is intriguing. Yeah, the UN are worried about China chucking missiles into outer-space in a kind of childish “look what we can do” display of military might. But it just so happens to be the case that ET doesn’t like weapons in space, either.
Up to you and your openness to conspiracy theorizing – but the co-incidence is there and titillating nevertheless.
