The CIA admits: Yes, Area 51 was real.

The CIA has released a 355 page document detailing the location of Area 51, and the cold war activities that went on there.

No, I'm not shitting you.

"Get that bloody camera out of my face. No, I'm not talking about the next generation anal probe - wait for the damn press conference!"

The document reveals that roughly half of all UFO sightings in the 50s and 60s were due to American spyplane flights, which were moving at altitudes far higher than anyone believed possible at the time.

It also has some other er...lovely... tidbits, like the way the American government used non-American citizens as pilots so they could wash their hands of any aircraft that crashed.

Here's the link to the report:

Flight and history buffs will love it - but alien abduction enthusiasts (I believe their annual conference on Io, moon of Jupiter, is kicking off next week) will be disappointed.

A whole moon covered in volcanoes and lava lakes, powered by the gravity of Jupiter. That's real, and you still feel a need to make up stuff about aliens ramming chips up your nose?

There's still plenty of other hinky stuff, implied by a quick comparison between the official stories of the time and the details of this report.

But, while you're polishing you conspiracy theory, remember the only reason we have this report at all is that there are still western governments who believe in telling their citizens the truth, when they can.....
