CIA admits: Area 51 is real

Area 51 is real.

Newly released CIA documents confirm the existence of the secretive government site, long-rumored to be located somewhere in the Nevada desert.

Area 51 officially acknowledged, mapped in newly released documents

For decades, Area 51 has been the subject of Hollywood lore and countless conspiracy theories, but is there any truth to the legends about crashed spaceships and alien autopsies?

    There are no alien crash. It's a secret government project. Aliens are mistaken for Angels and they are far more advanced. The government dreams of having such technology. As a matter of fact, when they chase UFO, they shoot down our planes and unfortunately, our government covers it up. Not even alien body. They're dreaming. All those stories of abductions are hoax. Everything about UFOs, abductions, ghosts, etc are hoax and not real.

    Sigh...no one, just me, again. And this won't clear moderation! Anyway, all Area 51 was for the most part an experimental test facility for advanced aircraft. All so-called "Flying Saucers" were built by for the US military. Many were saucer-shaped in design but didn't do as well as hoped. All turbo-fan powered. They cleared out of Groom Lake after Clinton declassified it back in 1995. No Aliens! Never not Ever!

    Area 51 or Groom Lake was well known back in the mid nineties. You could look at it on Google Maps for a long time now! Clinton acknowledged it. The only difference here is the CIA declassified material on Groom Lake. The surprise to me is how many people didn't realize that Area 51 had been public knowledge for nearly 20 years!
