I missed it damn!!! Please briefly describe what they presented.
I took a little glimpse, but I had already seen this documentary before. Can't remember exactly where, probably on the same channel. So I'm sure you
will have a chance to watch it again in the near future.
I didn't watch the show enterily last night because I prefered to watch the Daily Show and Colbert Report instead.
From what I can remember, basically they chatted with former test pilots who flew secret aircrafts in the past. They took a tour of commercial
satellite companies taking pictures of Area 51, and they explained that in theory the government could regulate the quality of satellite images
allowed to be shown to the general public, but in practice the company said that the gov never bothered censoring them because the gov know when a
satellite is orbiting overhead, takes about 3 days or so for a sat to come back at the same spot, so they simply have to hide the secret stuff in
hangars and camo tents that looks like normal ground elevation when observed from the sky.
The show also reported about Area 51 employees who sued for health damages from toxic waste incineration on the base. The Judge was told to shut up
because the gov didn't want to acknowledge that Area 51 exists, so the case was swept under the rug. Plaintiffs presented satellite pics to prove
they are not dreaming, it didn't help, apparently the court covered their ears and started signing LA! LA! LA! LA!... You know, exactly how it
happened in the NSA wiretap case.
I very much liked this show with its down-to-earth reporting, credible infos presented to the audience, no bullshiat about silly UFO sightings and
crap, at least from my fuzzy memory of the segments covered.
