CIA documents map Area 51, but no mention of UFOs
LAS VEGAS (AP) - The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is acknowledging in the clearest terms yet the existence of Area 51, the top-secret Cold War test site that has been the subject of conspiracy theories for decades.
Recently declassified documents, however, have no mention of flying saucers, aliens or staged moon landings.
A CIA history released on Thursday not only mentions Area 51 and describes some of the activities there, but it places the site on a map.
George Washington University's National Security Archive senior fellow Jeffrey Richelson says it is not the first time the US government has acknowledged the secretive installation.
