UFO's and Area 51 Declassification

This new document was recently released by The National Security Archive on August 15th:

The National Security Archive website released a document on August 15 titled The Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and OXCART Programs, 1954-1974 by agency historians Gregory Pedlow and Donald Welzenbach. Area 51 has been formally acknowledged by the government. All the major news networks have broke the story and televisions shows like "X-Files" and movies like "Independence Day" both helped catapult Area 51 into the public consciousness. Both stories followed UFOlogists' theories about the base. Finally the government has acknowledged the existence of the secret base, but it has nothing to do with extraterrestrials or flying saucers. A heavily edited version of this document was previously published in classified channels in 1992 and 1998. This less edited version was released in response to freedom of information act requests made in 2005 for a mandatory declassification. This release is notable for the significant amount of newly declassified material with respect to the U-2.
