  • Holy crap! Personally, I’ve always thought of this whole situation as one of those things where it would be really cool if it was real, but it almost certainly wasn’t. I’m genuinely astounded that a key part of his story has been explicitly verified as true— even part of his story being true implies

    Holy crap! Personally, I’ve always thought of this whole situation as one of those things where it would be really cool if it was real, but it almost certainly wasn’t. I’m genuinely astounded that a key part of his story has been explicitly verified as true— even part of his story being true implies some crazy, crazy stuff.

    “[Ex-Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge] has told the story numerous times with varying degrees of cohesion, hyperbole, and eyebrow-raising claims mixed in. But we have to stress, the nuts and bolts of his account have remained remarkably consistent over the years and we can now say, in a War Zone exclusive, that the narrative seed that anchors Tom's entire yarn is indeed factual.

    This surrounds Tom's claim that an employee party at what we found out to be Lockheed's Skunk Works started it all. This chance opportunity evolved into high-level meetings with top officials from the world's premier bleeding-edge aerospace design firm and catapulted him into a purportedly clandestine world that would make any espionage thriller writer blush. This confirmation doesn't come from undisclosed sources, but directly from Skunk Works itself....

    After the meetings at Skunk Works, Tom claims to have met with top officials at NASA, the Air Force, the U.S. intelligence apparatus, and the highest rungs of U.S. politics, all of whom worked cooperatively to provide him with a highly qualified team of deeply entrenched government insiders to help direct his efforts and to supply him with what can only be considered amazing information. That information would be doled out piece by tiny piece and the release of it to the public would be tightly controlled under strict terms.”
