U.S. Policies Driven By Aliens, Says Iran's Fars News Agency

Iran's semiofficial news agency Fars has once again provided ammunition to those critics who refer to the hard-line news outlet as "False" news.

Fars has reposted a report on its English website that claims the foreign and domestic policies of the United States have been driven by an "extraterrestrial intelligence agenda" since 1945.

Fars says documents released by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden provide "incontrovertible proof" that the "secret regime" ruling America was created after extraterrestrials -- referred to as "Tall Whites" -- met in 1954 with U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The report was first posted by the absurdly eccentric website, which has a reputation for peddling outlandish disinformation

The article asserts that "Tall Whites" were also behind the rise of Nazi Germany, and it goes on to claim that the aliens are still hell-bent on global domination:

"...[T]he “Tall White” agenda being implemented by the "secret regime" ruling the United States calls for the creation of a global electronic surveillance system meant to hide all true information about their presence here on earth as they enter into what one of Snowden's documents calls the “final phase” of their end plan for total assimilation and world rule."

To drive the point home, Fars has even created a special graphic of U.S. President Barack Obama next to Adolf Hitler against the backdrop of an American flag with a presumed alien life form staring at the reader. 

Iranian media have a record of publishing conspiracy theories and satirical reports as serious pieces of information.

In September, Fars published "news" that a Gallup poll found that rural white Americans preferred Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad to Barack Obama.

The origin of the poll was the satirical website "The Onion," but Fars posted it as hard news without crediting the source. The agency later acknowledged its "mistake."

Following Fars's widely reported error, "The Onion" referred to the hard-line news agency as "our Iranian subsidiary."

In June, Mehr, another semiofficial Iranian news agency, claimed in a report that Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was Jewish. Mehr even alleged that she was secretly baptized so she could marry Prince William, who is second in line to the British throne:

"The truth is that the Royal Family's new bride is a Jew. Although in the wedding ceremony it was pretended that Kate Middleton is Christian but this lady's family roots show that she is considered a Sephardic Jew from her mother's side. Moreover the timing of the wedding and the way it was held which was based on Jewish culture verify the evidences."

In October, Iran's English-language Press TV reposted on its website a report that insinuated that Pakistani education activist Malala Yousefzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban, was actually a fraud. The report was later removed from the website.

In 2010, Press TV aired a documentary produced by state-controlled television that claimed Neda Agha Soltan, a protester who was shot dead during the 2009 postelection crackdown and became an icon of dissent, was an agent of the United States and Britain whose death was staged.

Iranian state TV is known for airing unfounded accusations against political activists. The outlet has also aired forced confessions by activists over the years.

Some other links as we go down this rabbit hole.
I cannot imagine anyone who does not suffer from some form of mental illness taking this seriously. But this is the public face of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The source of the article:
Something about this junk website. HIGHLY amusing.

Iranians seem to be on the same alien wave-length as tabloid Russia Today (naturally), who are on same alien band-wagon (or flying saucer) as wacko ex-Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer:

This isn't even good propaganda. Not even the National Inquirer posts tabloids about aliens anymore. Also, I am interested in what Shia Islam has to say about the existence of aliens...?

Now at last US foreign policy makes sense. Its all dreamed up by little green men orbiting another star. And the 'Aliens in the attic' hypothesis also explains the strange behavior of the NSA. The NSA spies on everyone ,US friend and foe alike. Because all the data that it gathers up is to be beamed across the galaxy to the home world of our alien masters.

When you compare this to the lies the US media tells its own people it seems petty.

The Tall whites do exist, there base is a 5,000 square mile area north of creech airforce base nevada. The US government Made an agreement with them back 1954/55 with eisenhower. There were 2 main agreements made 1. Technology transfer agreement and 2. earth resource extraction agreement. If you go onto youtube and look for Mr Charles Hall, he is speaking at a conference for 1hr 26mins. This will give you more insight into the Tall Whites. You can also go on google earth and view the area in nevada, you will see the Tall whites scout crafts and the old landing area of there interstellar deep space craft in dog bone lake . The Old hanger is located approx 40 miles north of creech airforce base. Also suggest you you check out on youtube "Tall Whites The Evidence by David Hilton. Fars News Paper and whatdoesitmean,are not quite correct but this will create more awareness to there presence. Obama new nothing about until recently. Rgds Steve
