    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.

    Area 51 is a disinformation campaign. The alien bodies recovered are kept at a base near Tampa, FL.

    Its better to keep it like it is, you wanted in the cold war to make others "possibly assume" we had something extra. Play the fine line of hmmm maybe we do maybe we don't.

    So if it was merely a test site used over 50 years ago for the U2 and the early SR-71, why is it still open? And why has it still expanded over the decades? UFO's and spacecrafts aside, the site is still the #1 test site in the country after Edwards in California. Why do they keep peddling bullshit?

    I think it was fairly common knowledge what it was used for. I worked for Lockheed in the 80's and we knew in general what it was. The alien thing is good for tourism. I drove through a few years ago and it was funny to see what they were peddling.

    I worked for a small but major product supplier for all the aircraft manufactures and parts suppliers, no one obviously ever shared anything secret, but everyone talked about what "could" be there.

    The Have Blue program was developed there into the F-117 squadron, all the training was done there before it came out of "Black".

    I also heard about a C-5 "Big Cheeks" plane that was made to shuttle hypersonic vehicles back from tests, and a secret still flying "Valkyrie" that everyone thought was long extinct.

    I saw a test missile gone wrong one that seriously looks like an alien ship invading. It was a fantastic thing.
