Could this be disclosure?

Today that the US government admits that Area 51 exists. It's even on CNN. No mention of aliens, but is that next?

LAS VEGAS — The CIA is acknowledging the existence of Area 51 in newly declassified documents.

George Washington University's National Security Archive obtained a CIA history of the U-2 spy plane program through a public records request and released it Thursday.

National Security Archive senior fellow Jeffrey Richelson reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of Area 51 had been redacted.

Richelson says he requested the history again in 2005 and received a version a few weeks ago with mentions of Area 51 restored.

Officials have already acknowledged in passing the existence of the facility in central Nevada where the government is believed to test intelligence tools and weapons.

Richelson believes the new document shows the CIA is becoming less secretive about Area 51's existence, if not about what goes on there.

Very true :winksmiley02:. It also kinda gives people like Bob Lazar more creditability now, and will others come forward now?

More from CNN:
Newly released CIA documents have acknowledged the secretive military base for the first time.

(CNN)*-- Area 51 has long been a topic of fascination for conspiracy theorists and paranormal enthusiasts, but newly released CIA documents officially acknowledge the site and suggest that the area served a far less remarkable purpose than many had supposed.

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.

All very true and I am happy that they kept it a secret. It was important to keep it dark. But all the time they were telling the public that it didn't exist. Thats fine. Just shows you how completely solid they can be when trying to protect their own programs. And as long as those programs are useful and not obsolete they are going to keep on doing that.

What is the surprise about that? <g> Linda
