U.S. Government Admits Area 51 Exists

area51Who says the Obama Administration isn’t transparent? It has just released a formerly classified report that finally acknowledges that Area 51 actually exists! Or, to be more precise, did exist.

Everyone knows the place is there, just outside Las Vegas, but the government has always officially refused to acknowledge it is an official testing facility — for the U-2 spy plane, not the hiding and study of crashed UFOs and alien corpses. (Governments can only be so transparent!)

ABC News describes the report thusly:

Although the report makes no mention of the sensational stories that have played out in pop culture for decades, it turns out that Area 51 was started as a testing site for the government’s U-2 spy plane. The report, more than 400 pages, is titled “Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and Oxcart Programs, 1954-1974.”

The U-2 spy planes were commonly used by the United States during the Cold War in reconnaissance missions around the globe.

Officials and former employees have previously acknowledged in passing the existence of the facility and how it was used for testing U-2 planes, but this is the first time the U.S. government has openly referred to Area 51 and given specifics on its operations. The report also features a map of the area.

ufolightsSignaling that the government knew what was going on all along, the report further states:

“U-2 and later OXCART flights accounted for more than one-half of all UFO reports during the late 1950s and most of the 1960s.”

Meaning that the government was deliberately and consciously lying when it denied any knowledge about UFOs, aliens or secret military testing programs.

Finally — and tellingly? — the report makes no mention of the status of Area 51 after 1974. So, does that mean it no longer exists?

  1. Years ago i met a man who worked at Groom Lake. We spent the day with him on his property (we were going to buy his helicopter) and we got to talking. He was an engineer whose job it was to reverse-engineer Soviet surface to air missiles. He worked there for nearly 15 years, travelling from LV mostly by rental car (not the flights). He had to vary his route every time (sometimes by hundreds of miles) so the odometer would never give an accurate reading of the distance traveled. I did ask him about aliens. I had to, of course. He shrugged and said he’d never seen anything weird. He then said there were seven hangers there when he was working but he only had access to two. Still, nothing odd.
