Government: There Is No NSA Surveillance of Americans But By The Way Yeah, Area 51 Does Exist

Sorry for the zero posts today -- got caught up in commenting in the last post and forgot "Oh yeah, I'm supposed to post things too."

This would be a thing.

I don't know how important the actual physical location of Area 51 is. But here's what I do know: It would be a great thing if they could move the working Area 51 to somewhere else and then open the old Area 51 to the public -- suitably cleansed of still-classified Things.

Would you go to an Area 51 museum? I would. I don't believe in UFOs but I'm so there. Your museum has two parts: What Area 51 really was, which was super-cool, and what it was in the imagination, which is frankly what most people want to see but what the hell, include a mock-up of a "crashed UFO."

For the kids. And also, me.

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. …

This information will be disappointing to some, who have come to view the area has been a mecca of sorts for alien encounters. …

The map and other documents were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by Jeffrey T. Richelson, a senior fellow at the National Security Archives, in 2005.
