Area 51 was the biggest worst-kept secret ever.  I love that the govt finally acknowledges the existence of something the general public has known about for years.

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along.  Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?

So, who around here thought it didn't exist, but now does because our good ol' government now disclosed its existence?

I agree with those that feel the government hasn't openly acknowledged the facility there for legal reasons in the last few decades. Of course everyone knows it's there but to recognize it as an official site brings oversite such as EPA and other agencies into play. I'm guessing (reasonably sure with no proof) that there is some environmentally nasty stuff hanging about for starters. It also brings into play the workers lawsuits that have been squished in the interest of National Security.

All this is speculation of course but it seems more logical that there are now better legal reasons to admit it exists than not. .02

What?  They have been trying to convince us for decades that it does not exist? So what else exists that they also denied? And they wonder why no one trusts the government?

CIA should stand for Central Idiots Agency.

We have already been waiting for more than twenty years to hear the governments recommended protocols for visiting extraterrestrials and space aliens when we finally meet them. I know that I am NOT waiting for nothing. How about you, fellow Americans ?

I've spoke about this before years ago, but likely worth mentioning again.

To be fair, I can not offer authentication, as it was "he said-he said"

Anyway, here goes...

I have a friend who is a former NAVY Seal. He has a friend in California that, according to him, was part of a secret military project(as an engineer) who was part of a construction team within the mountain around Area 51 many years ago.
The project was nothing as esoteric as UFO bases, rather more mundane.

They, supposedly, constructed about a dozen secret jet fighter launch bunkers within the sides of the surrounding mountains. Even the main launch door of each site is adhesive-coated with rock and dirt, so as to hide their existance. The bunkers are huge and long, containing both a runway and a 24/7 pilot and support team "housing" unit at each bunker. When activated, the secret door would hydraulically open(pivot down) and the jet fighter would launch.

To my friends knowledge, they were never activated(other than for testing, of course)

The purpose of all this was to quickly and secretly launch fighter jets to intercept aircraft that was geting too close to the then highly secret prototype test facility, if the aircraft/ground forces got past the even further away initial standard perimeter defense.

Anyway, I have no idea how much(if any) of this is true. Just what I was told by a trusted friend.

Not exactly - it never really was that secret and all of the stuff that has come out this week was declassified more than 20 years ago.

Wow, your friend's friend couldn't keep a secret either.  That's why conspiracy theories are so hard to believe.  There is always someone involved with a big mouth.

This was to Palladin's post about his Navy SEAL's friend.

I have a very powerful feeling it's not just a testing ground for aircraft.

they never said it does not exist, the existence of Base Area 51 & its location was never a secret, just what goes inside it, when you search for Area 51, only conspiracy theories appears

and who knows, they maybe gave this documents to redirect us away from the truth :)
