THE TRUTH IS REALLY OUT THERE… IN NEVEDA.
Documents obtained by George Washington University’s National Security Archive confirm for the first time what conspiracy theorists and UFO fanatics have long argued — that Area 51 exists.
Chosen as the site for a top secret testing facility in the 1950s for the U-2 spy plane, the parcel of land, which for decades was never identified on any government maps, resides in the desert of southern Nevada.
Why do governments keep records of their illegal actions? Why do people write down what they know to be wrong? The National Security Archive is out to find out.
“Humans have to have some sort of rationalization, justification, especially if it amounts to murder,” said Thomas Blanton, director of the National Security Archive, a research institute and library located on the seventh floor of Gelman Library. “Writing it down is the only way they can keep doing it . writing it down allows them to make peace with evil.
Since its inception in 1985, the archive has acquired and published hundreds of paper documenting corruption and villainy, both in the U.S., and abroad. In 1999 they published the Guatemala Death Squad Diary, and in 2001 they published a memo for Condoleezza Rice from Richard Clarke, warning of the threat of Al-Qaida.
One recent finding, known as the “Family Jewels,” is a collection of papers documenting actions of the CIA in the 1960s and 1970s. The papers were released to the NSA in June, 15 years after they requested the documents through the Freedom of Information Act.
From inside these institutions other human beings make a choice to keep secrets. So ever steadily this has & will continue to change everything.
