AceShowbiz - %cTom DeLonge% surprised many people when he announced last year that he quit %cBlink-182% to investigate aliens. Now, emails released by WikiLeaks can confirm how serious the rocker is about pursuing his interest in finding out the truth behind UFOs.
WikiLeaks recently released emails that DeLonge sent to Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta about their shared interest in extraterrestrial life. Using somewhat vague language, the former Blink-182 co-lead vocalist told Podesta that he would like introduce him to two "very 'important' people" with knowledge of issues relating to their "sensitive topic" in an email from 2015.
"I think you will find them very interesting," DeLonge wrote. "Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and as well the investment to bring all the way out to you. I just need 2 hours from you."
While it's unclear if Podesta responded to DeLonge's emails, it's revealed that Podesta participated in a documentary DeLonge's producing. Podesta is indeed a UFO buff, tweeting when he left the Obama administration in 2015 that his "biggest failure" was "not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files."
In another email from earlier this year, DeLonge claimed that he'd been working with a former Air Force Major General William N. McCasland, whom he said was in charge of a laboratory ot Wright Patterson Air Force Base where DeLonge believes Roswell UFO remains were stored.
"When Roswell crashed, they shipped it to the laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. General McCasland was in charge of that exact laboratory up to a couple years ago," he wrote.
In 2011, DeLonge launched Strange Times, a website devoted to extraterrestrial life, paranormal activity, cryptozoology and conspiracy theories. He also incorporated his belief in aliens in Blink's 1999 song "Aliens Exist".
