Area 51 expert on social media campaign to 'storm' top-secret site: Military won't let anyone get close

The mystery of Area 51: Why Americans are so obsessed with the top-secret military base

As hundreds of thousands pledge online to storm Area 51, author Annie Jacobsen explains the obsession with the site and alien conspiracy theories.

An author and expert on Area 51 said the U.S. military will never let civilians anywhere near the top-secret site after the "Storm Area 51" movement went viral on Facebook.

One million Facebook users have now responded that they would go to a Facebook event scheduled for Sept. 20 at 3:00 a.m., with the creator writing "they can't stop all of us."


“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets,” the event description said, referencing a Japanese comic character known for his speed.

“Let's see them aliens.”

The social media campaign made national headlines as it grew last week, forcing the Air Force, which runs the installation, to respond and caution UFO enthusiasts against traveling to the area.

"[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. ... The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets," spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post.

Responding Monday on "Fox & Friends," Annie Jacobsen – author of "Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base – dismissed the idea that civilians could get close to the facility. She explained that the classified military facility is housed inside a classified testing and training range which is the size of Connecticut.

"That base is so jealously guarded, both in terms of media and in terms of actual physicality. I don't think the Air Force or any of the other military partners or intelligence community partners that are all working out there at Area 51 are gonna let anybody anywhere near the entrance to Area 51," said Jacobsen.

Area 51 is a facility near Groom Lake, Nev., run by the Air Force whose operations are highly classified. It has been linked to alien conspiracy theories since the testing of a spy plane in 1955 in which the Central Intelligence Agency first shed light on the military detachment.

Jacobsen, a Pulitzer Prize finalist and New York Times bestselling author, said "disinformation" and "cover stories" about the operations at Area 51 continue to this day.

I'm pretty sure that this event will all fall apart before the scheduled date. And Mark Zuckerberg has already been visited by some guys that look like the MIB. So he will get his aliens alright, but not the kind he was expecting. I look for the site on FB to be taken down at any moment now.

Couldn't this be seen as trespassing and inciting a riot?

What's Area 51, and why is it so popular right now? 4 things to know about the top-secret site


By Stephen Sorace | Fox News

Area 51 expert says what will happen if social media mob storms top-secret site

As one million Facebook users prepare to 'storm' the top secret Area 51 Military Base in Nevada, Annie Jacobsen, author of 'Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base,' dismissed the idea that civilians could even get close to the facility. Jacobsen explained that besides the fact that the base is highly guarded, the military facility is housed inside a classified testing and training range which is roughly the size of Connecticut.

The top-secret military base known as Area 51 has long been a point of discussion for conspiracy theorists who believe the facility holds government secrets about aliens and UFOs.

The government denied its existence for years until the release of declassified Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) reports in 2013. Officials have referred to the site by several names, including the Nevada Test and Training Range, "Watertown" and "Dreamland."


AREA 51 EXPERT ON SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN TO 'STORM' TOP-SECRET SITE: MILITARY WON'T LET ANYONE GET CLOSE

Read on for more about the history and excitement surrounding Area 51.

Where is Area 51 ??

Area 51 is a government facility in the Nevada desert near Groom Lake, a dry lakebed located about 120 miles north of Las Vegas. The site was chosen in the 1950s to secretly test the Air Force’s U-2 aircraft and train pilots, according to the CIA.

The area had earlier been used during World War II as an aerial gunnery range for Army pilots.

Employees take small, unmarked passenger planes from the Las Vegas airport to get to the remote area, according to Business Insider.

What is Area 51?

President Dwight Eisenhower approved the facility’s development in the 1950s, according to the CIA. The site was used by the Air Force to test the U-2 spy plane during the Cold War.

TRUMP'S' OPINION ON UFOS: NOPE -- BUT YOU NEVER KNOW

In 2013, the CIA acknowledged its existence, releasing its location and how it had been used to test military aircraft, including the F-117A, A-12 and TACIT BLUE, according to Business Insider.

While it isn’t exactly known what the base is currently used for, an Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post that Area 51 is where “we train American armed forces” and “is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force.”

"The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets," McAndrews added.

McAndrews discouraged civilians from visiting the area.

Why is it linked to alien conspiracy theories?

It has been linked to alien conspiracy theories since the testing of a spy plane in 1955, leading to sightings of what people called “unidentified flying objects.” For decades, it has been thought to serve as a holding site for UFOs, aliens and government secrets about extraterrestrials.

SENATORS BRIEFED ON UFOS AS SPECULATION GROWS SURROUNDING NAVAL SIGHTINGS: REPORT

However, Air Force officials at the time couldn’t reveal the top-secret U-2 tests to the public. They explained the sightings as "natural phenomena" and "high-altitude weather research," according to Business Insider.

UFO fever gripped the U.S. nearly a decade earlier after an unidentified object crashed in Roswell, N.M on July 8, 1947. Officials would label the crashed object a weather balloon.

Why the hype?

The secrets surrounding Area 51 have spurred the public's interest in learning what the facility holds.

A group of over 400,000 UFO enthusiasts — which is continuing to grow — recently made a social media pledge to "storm" the site to “see them aliens.” However, Annie Jacobsen – author of "Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base,” said she doesn’t think the government will let anyone near the facility.

That is a top secret military base..rushing it is a good way to get their azzes shot ! I guess with all the law breaking being pemitted on our southern border, they figure they can pull the same thing at Area 51, with impunity.

They also may gain a set of canine teeth in their butts, too !

They could likely get in if they were criminal invaders and not American Patriots. I hope they really do try and a bunch get shot. Then put those guards on the border. CHARLIE,
