Hillary just announced she is going.

She said she was going to look into UFOs. I assume she meant "whilst standing in the main airlock" so it wouldn't be Area 51.

I have often contemplated this question. Why do the POTUS never visit Area 51? I just know that in some form or another the Area has been used by the military since WW2.


Clinton did a large alien investigation around 1995 an on and found nothing, so maybe that is why they do not go.

Radio monitors in DC have POTUS tracking down to an art, simply by knowing the voices of the pilots used for AF1.

If a VC-25 isn't used, POTUS usually flies on a C-17. BTW, I caught a McChord C-17 landing at Desert Rock.

President Obama visited Nellis. The trip was related to the Nellis AFB solar power facility.

There are a fair number of POTUS visits to military bases to promote agendas.

I've heard a few stories about presidents and their experiences with Area 51. President Elect Jimmy Carter is alleged to have asked George Bush Sr, then CIA Director, to brief him on these things. Bush is said to have declined, stating that Carter didn't have a need to know and also that the presidents curiosity doesn't constitute a need to know.

I've also heard that Eisenhower sought the same information, and when he received a response similar to what Carter got, Einsenhower threatened to attack Area-51. Eisenhower is said to have gotten his briefing after all.

Someone else, whose name I don't presently recall, supposedly also received this briefing, and was allegedly seen "sobbing" afterward, stating "my children have to live in this world," or something to that effect.

Whether or not the story is true or not, I'm surprised more aren't said to have taken Eisenhowers approach. Had I been Jimmy Carter for instance, I certainly wouldn't have taken "no" for an answer, at least not without any real good reason. If my Secret Service was willing, Bush would have been instantly detained, and compelled to provide me with the information I seek. CIA can't truly believe "interrogation" is absolutely ineffective against its personnel when it deems it reasonable to operate facilities for this function throughout the world.

I would learn something from him. Meanwhile the Secret Service and FBI would be publicly raiding Langley as part of an investigation for conspiracy to commit treason, while the USMC, USAF and Army together assault and capture Area 51. I would learn something again, meanwhile the FBI and DHS would be instructed to make this subject their top priority, with reports made daily to myself and to the media.

They would brief me, or I would fully test the power of the president. Information is power, and you would certainly not restrict the power of the president unlawfully, let alone the power of the people. Shorter life expectancy be damned.

That wouldn't have been 51, though. Not for UFOs. Well, not for alien ones. There are a lot of things flying around 51 that I don't suppose I can identify, because they're prototypes and one-offs.

AFAIK, every president is informed about...stuff. George Jr certainly was. Heh.

Oh, that was us, after that f-d up Proteus test firing. One of the eggheads said something like "if my children grow up, what will they think about this".
