Edward Snowden, the former CIA analyst and network administrator who has become key in privacy breach allegations in the United States and even Brazil, has made new revelations about the US government. In addition, he still gave an answer to a very common question among conspiracy theories: have we ever been visited or contacted by aliens?
"For the record, as far as I know, aliens never contacted Earth, or at least never did it through US intelligence," says Snowden. He still talks about the man's landing on the moon, still questioned by many people. "And in case you're wondering, yes, the human really went to the moon. Climate change is real. Chemtrails don't exist," he explains.

The information is in his new book, "Eternal Surveillance", in which he tells more about the discovery made in 2013 that the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) were developing ways to collect accessible texts, videos and content by citizens without permission. The author has feedback to answer that, as he rummaged through agency keywords and databases.
Is the truth out there?
Apart from the book, Snowden spoke more about the case in an interview with Joe Rogan, a popular US podcaster.
"I know you want aliens there, Joe. I know Neil deGrasse Tyson really wants them to exist. And they're probably out there, right? But the idea that we're hiding them … I had absurd access to the networks." from the NSA, NASA, the military, all these groups. I couldn't find anything. So if they are hidden, and they could be, they are very well hidden, even from the people inside, "he comments.
And after all, why do we like these themes so much, to the point of having a party in front of Area 51 to try to break into the place and demand answers? Snowden also has an opinion. "Everyone wants to believe in conspiracy theories because they help make sense of life. It helps us believe that someone is in charge, someone is giving orders," he concludes. The former analyst's book is already for sale in Brazil.
