"Area 51: Government officially says its real, we all reply 'duh'"
"In response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the CIA has officially acknowledged what we all knew anyway: That Area 51 is a real place. Previously unrecognized by the government, the remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base and the hub for so-called alien remains has been officially recognized, reports The Washington Post on Aug. 17.
"'It marks an end of official secrecy about the facts of Area 51,” says Jeffrey Richelson, a senior official with the National Security Archive. “It opens up the possibility that future accounts of this and other aerial projects will be less redacted, more fully explained in terms of their presence in Area 51.'” ~ Linsey Bald, Long Island Top News Examiner August 18. What can we learn from this?
Go see it anyway
Area 51 rates high as a Las Vegas entertainment destination, even though i you’ll only see a wire fence with an old rusted and bullet-holed "keep out sign" posted on it if you go there. If somehow you get beyond this fence you’ll probably get chased away by security before you get too far.
Speculate and imagine
It’s actually more fun to drive to it than see it. On the way you get to speculate on what you might see. Remember to keep the moon roof open and the windows down just in case something strange flies overhead. Strange things beside the highway will keep you entertained too.
Stop and enjoy
If you’re in no hurry you can stop and get some “Alien Jerky” and hear great alien stories from the people who shoot and skin the aliens to make the jerky. Also, get out of the car before you get there and breathe in deeply to see if you can smell alien fuel oil. I heard they were going to build an alien brothel somewhere around the main gate, but I only heard that. It’s never been confirmed.
We learn what we already know
We can learn that people have great imaginations and I’m sure that’s what the Air Force has been saying between giggles for 70 years .
Is it even still there?
We also know the government doesn't expose any secrets that might hurt something they are doing. So, if they have finally admitted that Area 51 does exist it probably means there are no secrets worth protecting, at least at that spot. There are more solid rumors, however, that the government has moved the most important working parts of Area 51 further in land or out of country altogether.
What should be done
If I were in charge I would build an “official museum” at the main gates, invite all the Michael Jackson and Elvis impersonators I could find, and charge admission. Las Vegas visitors would love it and I bet the profits from the bright green slot machines would pay off at least some part of the national debt.
We could learn a lot from that.
