Iran’s self-proclaimed official news outlets like to grab local attention by creating Jewish conspiracy theories, like Israel’s mission to bomb Iraq and the British royal family secretly being Jewish.

The most outrageous story to date, however, was dropped last Sunday.

According to The Washington Post, Iranian semi-official news agency Fars News has claimed that the United States government has been run by Nazi space aliens since 1945.

Based out of Nevada, the alien government uses NSA surveillance programs to hide its identity along with its desire for global domination.

The article says that Germany built hundreds of submarines towards the end of World War II, which required technology far more advanced than anything available at the time. This is the basis of Fars News’ argument that the Hitler regime was secretly being run by aliens.

The aliens took over the US government after Germany lost the war. President Obama is a puppet of the aliens whose aim is to install a global surveillance system that will enslave the entire world.

Even funnier than the story itself are Fars News’ “sources” for the story, the Post reports. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has apparently waited until now to reveal the truth about his former employer to Russia’s Federal Security Service.

Fars News also says the story was confirmed by former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer, who recently went on TV saying that aliens have visited Earth to lend us their technology many times.

All humor aside, this highly-entertaining story actually says a lot about Iran’s view of the National Security Agency. Fars News has written about a myriad of ridiculous stories in the past, but none have been anywhere near as outwardly false as this one.

Fars News could have said that our president was an alien or maybe that aliens were manning our drones, but instead it chose the NSA as the aspect of American politics that seems the most likely to involve extraterrestrials.

This choice shows us that the exposure of the NSA’s surveillance programs may very well have been the point in which the rest of the world lost its faith in the US government’s humanity and moral code.
