They are harping on the news source rather than the official site of the NSA.
Well, no duhhh...programs like CNN and FOX aren't going to make mention of this. They have to keep the "no-aliens-exist-that's-just-crazy-talk-humans-are-the-most-intelligent-lifeform-after-all-Earth-is-the-center-both-physically-and-metaphorically- speaking-of-the-universe-" propagandaedit on 25-11-2011 by ButterCookie because: (no reason given)edit on 25-11-2011 by ButterCookie because: (no reason given)edit on 25-11-2011 by ButterCookie because: (no reason given)
It's not bogus.... It's just not what you want it/think it to be. Read the complete article and you'll see it is just a theoretical exercise and not based on an actual message from another planet.
If it was, do you really believe it would be released without any redactions? With the name of the crypto-analyst? That a court could make the NSA to FOIA a document they don't want to release, when all they need to say is the magic words..."National Security"?
Besides, if it was real, all SETI scientists and the rest of the worlds scientists would be all over this thing.....
I never specifically stated what I thought it was....the fact that its even an exercise by the NSA is what's noteworthy.
