Area 51 has been the stuff of legends and conspiracy theories for over 50 years.
But the United States government has never even officially confirmed that the army base/research facility/alien prison even exists!
In a newly uncensored report entitled "Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and Oxcart Programs, 1954-1974" the CIA not only acknowledges the existence of Area 51- they explain all the alien ado!
"High-altitude testing of the U-2 soon led to an unexpected side effect — a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs)…
U-2 and later OXCART flights accounted for more than one-half of all UFO reports during the late 1950s and most of the 1960s."
The report even details plane crashes in 1956 that could explain the idea of an alien crash! That seems like a perfectly rational explanation to us!
Or is that just what they want us to think???
