The CIA has admitted to something that’s long been rumored to exist but for which there’s never been any actual real-world visual confirmation. No, not “Recovery Summer,” but rather the legendary Area 51:
CIA officially acknowledges Area 51, long a fixation for conspiracy theorists, in documents. http://t.co/uV4xDT0LMI

Actor Adam Baldwin snarked that Area 51 is a “false flag,” but tweeters reminded those who might not remember that Baldwin has been there:

Baldwin was informed of a dirty little secret about Area 51:
@AdamBaldwin It's where we take all the rodeo clowns.

Others joined the Area 51 discussion:
Area 51 exists. Now somebody needs to turn an Iowa cornfield into a baseball park. #IfYouBuildIt

Aliens are such hipsters, they are planning to stop going to Area 51 now that everybody knows about it.

Even Walmart got in on the fun:
Area 51 exists! New Walmart location? pic.twitter.com/uLcN9ovgB5

The CIA’s acknowledgement of the existence of Area 51 is an encouraging sign that the truth about the NSA could also be made public—in a matter of time:
CIA admits Area 51 exists. So if you want to know for sure if the government is spying on us, just wait about 50 years.
