Edward Snowden Claims He Saw Classified Proof That All Conspiracies Are False

By now, you should have heard of Edward Snowden, the ex-CIA employee and ex-NSA contractor who leaked troves of classified information that he had obtained through his work.  However, this article isn’t about the state secrets he leaked, but the odd tale of his own personal desire to investigate conspiracy theories.  He recently claimed that while he had access to the various databases, he decided to look up everything he could think of about popular conspiracy theories.  The result?  He reported in his recent memoir:

“For the record, as far as I could tell, aliens have never contacted Earth, or at least they haven’t contacted US intelligence.”
He also confirmed that according to the records he snooped, the moon landing did occur:
“In case you were wondering: Yes, man really did land on the moon. Climate change is real. Chemtrails are not a thing.”
Snowden talked about this some more in a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, claiming his research revealed no evidence of aliens, chemtrails, or any of the other popular conspiracy theories.
“I know, Joe, I know you want there to be aliens,” Snowden said to Rogan, “I know Neil deGrasse Tyson badly wants there to be aliens. And there probably are, right?  But the idea that we’re hiding them — if we are hiding them — I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, the CIA, the military, all these groups. I couldn’t find anything.  So if it’s hidden, and it could be hidden, it’s hidden really damn well, even from people who are on the inside.”
Personally, I think his story is complete nonsense.  The point of marking a document as classified is to restrict access.  Snowden’s claim that he was able to idly peruse the entirety of government databases as he sated his curiosity is completely contraindicated by how the government stores its documents.
