 CIA acknowledges Area 51 in declassified documents
THE CIA is acknowledging the existence of Area 51 for the first time in newly declassified documents.

George Washington University's National Security Archive obtained a CIA history of the U-2 spy plane program through a public records request and released it Thursday.

National Security Archive senior fellow Jeffrey Richelson reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of Area 51 had been redacted.

Richelson says 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.

Richelson believes the new document shows the CIA is becoming less secretive about Area 51's existence, if not about what goes on there.

Australia has its own secretive spy base, too.

Pine Gap near Alice Springs is Australia's most secretive location, run by both Australia and US.

In July, it was revealed that Pine Gap may have been responsible for US drone strikes in Pakistan.
