Such Transparency: US Government Admits Area 51 Exists

Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act inquiry filed by Jeffrey Richelson in 2005, the US government has finally gotten around to declassifying documents about Area 51 and its purpose. Obviously, because this is the government we're talking about, they're all filthy lies.

According to these reports, which include a map of the base's location in Nevada, Area 51 was merely a testing site for the government's U-2 and OXCART aerial surveillance programs. The U-2 program conducted surveillance around the world, including over the Soviet Union during the Cold War.


But the newly released documents make no mention of alien autopsy rooms or spaceship parking lots.

Richelson told CNN he believes this could signal a dramatic change in the government's willingness to declassify information about the famed base, meaning even more information could come out about Area 51 in the future.

So if Area 51 was just a testing site for two 50-year old planes, what's it doing now? What's been going on since the 60's? Sure maybe the site STARTED as a testing facility for planes, but what did it turn into? Take the liquor store down the street. Before it was a liquor store it was a Korean restaurant. See what I'm saying? Just because something started as something doesn't mean you haven't autopsied an alien up in it since.

Thanks to Tom and E V I L A R E S, who believe.

    we all known area 51 was real.... People just have this conspiracy that it's used to hold aliens. truth is it's used to test and build new military plans Either way no matter what You never know what truly goes on at some of these bases as only the ones that needs to know is the ones that has access

  • lorrrd

    Funfact : balack prez has no permission 2 enter that area ( beside many other sites...)
    why should O-bummer go there anyway?

  • Wait, is that a baseball diamond? What would Area 51's baseball team be called? I'm gonna go with "The Weather Balloons".

  • Kenlin Bros

    51ers?

  • Stephen Casto

    No, this is not a step in the right direction for the US government. Just like when they announced that they had a secret presidential bunker in WV, it was AFTER it had been shut down and moved someplace else. The same thing is happening at A51. They have had to move it because too many people know about it and the government can't cover it up anymore, that's all.

    I have a funny feeling that this is the place where they are creating Half-Life 3.

  • JJtoob

    No, they wouldn't have declassified it otherwise.

  • Of course they aren't being stingy with info anymore, the things they did there aren't nearly as important anymore so they can finally talk about it.

    They've moved away from super secret planes and such and do most of their spy work via the net and with drones now so a aircraft development base isn't priority when it comes to secrets. Sure they are probably still doing work there, but its not a primary focus anymore.

    Nope. Men in Black... end of story, I will accept no other answer.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Like Will Smith, Men in Black? Noisy Cricket?
