Nobody is trying to hide wagon tracks in the desert from 150 years ago, but if the government wants to hide a massive underground installation (and
there are some buildings, parking lots and runways on location there, including flights and buses full of employees arriving every day), all they have
to do is spend a few billion dollars. Probably fully half of the US Defense budget is black projects, and they spend in 6 hours the equivalent of
NASA's annual budget. There have been too many people coming forward saying they saw things out of the ordinary at Area 51 for it not to be true,
especially since most don't talk until the end of their lives. If you wanted to cash in, you'd do it at a young age, take the money and try to hide.
Older people are more likely to be telling the truth; if you've known something for decades and it's always bothered you, you'd want to relay the
information before you died and money is not the motivator at that point. Or, if your story is truly just a figment of your imagination, and you're
that good at making stuff up, just write scifi for a living; there's plenty of money in that, also.
Additionally, if all the people who whispered anything about Area 51 were to disappear or be suicided, that alone would get suspicious, although it
would tend to cast a pall over informants. If death were the usual result of working at TS levels, it would start getting pretty hard to recruit
people. Better to convince them that the research is patriotic; most Americans will swallow that one hook, line and sinker. Combine it with
compartmentalized information and no one ever has the full story, leading to a feeling of worry, confusion and fear. Look at how few people in the US
question 9-11 even though the official explanation is ridiculous.
