According to Brisbane's newspaper The Courier Mail, claims were made on the website 'www.abovetopsecret.com' that the French government proclaimed it a phantom island, and it was supposed to have been removed from its records in 1979, or that it could be a deliberate error inserted into the map, something mapmakers sometimes do so that they can identify their work for copyright purposes.

That's strange because ATS was no where near the first site.

My attention was first drawn to the site after a major news story in which it was mentioned. It wasn't the best publicity but it got me interested

That's funny - because ATS was hardly the source of the claims. Our members simply repeated what was said in the video and the source article.
Not that we're complaining. Always exciting to see ATS being mentioned in the news. If only it was accurate news...

Oh, and this is not the first time that ATS has beat the MSM to a story - nor been given credit for it.
