The CIA has acknowledged the existence of Area 51, the US government’s secret weapons testing site, in newly declassified documents, George Washington University has revealed in its National Security Archive. It obtained a CIA history of the U-2 spy plane program and released it Thursday. The archive’s senior fellow, Jeffrey Richelson, reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of Area 51 had been redacted. He requested the history again in 2005 and received a version a few weeks ago with mentions of Area 51 restored. Officials have already acknowledged in passing the existence of the facility in central Nevada where the government is believed to test intelligence tools and weapons.

Acknowledging Area 51 is a necessary precursor to "disclosure" and the disclosure of aliens is a prerequisite to a faux alien invasion (Bluebeam?) to force a One World Government (a la Reagan's speech).

Only, what about bases one through 50?
Goodness knows... although I'd name a base #51 even if there were only 3 bases.
