It has been acknowledged that Area 51 exists by the US government . In reply to a Freedom of Information request from 2005, it has been confirmed that it was founded during the Eisenhower years and was set up to develop the U2 spy plane .
From Mail Online :
“For the first time ever, the United States government is acknowledging the existence of the enigmatic military base in the southern Nevada desert famously known as Area 51. But its purpose, according to recently released documents, is far less spectacular than most UFO enthusiasts would have hoped.
The National Security Archive at George Washington University recently published a report entitled ‘The Secret History of the U-2.’ It chronicles the history and importance of the spy planes that were frequently used during the Cold War.
In their research for the report, the NSA the researchers obtained declassified documents about the planes that actually reference Area 51 on several occasions – as well as a map of the secret base.”
Area 51 is more famous for its extra-terrestrial links and claims have been made that the bodies of the Roswell alien ended up in Area 51, as well as allegations of an alien base, Majestic 12 etc, etc .
Of course, this release of information would have to be authorised at the highest level, way above Barack Obama and my suspicious mind suspects it’s part of the ongoing Prism / Shining revelations .The U2 was another Eye in the Sky and had its own ‘I Spy’, Gary Powers who was shot down over Soviet airspace and was eventually returned to the United States in a prisoner exchange with the USSR . Maybe Ed Ward Snowden ( Eyes Wide Shut ) will become another ‘Spy Who Came In From The Cold’ .
One of my favourite phrases since Boston is ‘somewhere in the Nevada desert’ and it has been claimed that the Moon landings were shot in Area 51 . And with reference to Kubrick, The Shining and Area 51 .
“Keep watching the skies” .
