Newly declassified CIA documents released to the National Security Archive of George Washington University (ten years after an initial request) are the first official acknowledgement of the existence of Area 51 by the US government.
The CIA map shows Area 51 in an area northeast of the Atomic Energy Commission’s test site for aerial surveillance aircraft, including the infamous U2 spy plane.
See? It was spy planes all along, stupid hippies.
*Is what they want you to think*
