‘Colbert Report’ Stirs Up Controversy at DIA: Producers from the “Colbert Report” were at Denver International Airport (DIA) on Friday taping scenes for an upcoming show on conspiracy theories tied to the airport. The theories include that the airport was built by the Illuminati for the New World Order, that its runways form a swastika, that the capstone on the floor contains a secret message, and that there is a guarded secret highway beneath the airport. There are also questions about the murals inside the airport as well as the large red-eyed Mustang statue at the entrance.
Airport officials talked to people from the show ahead of time to make sure the segment would not be bad publicity. However, one DIA administrator, who asked not to be named, said there were indeed aliens working alongside her.
