    If I was them, Area-51 would be the decoy. Real sketch stuff is somewhere else. All warfare is deception. So why not apply that to your secrets? Make people and other governments think that's where you have your goodies when all you're doing is some avionics testing. Do enough secret stuff to warrant attention, but have the real goodies elsewhere.

    Usually, once the government declassifies something it is because they have already moved on or the information has become obsolete.

    Don't credit our "Intelligence Agencies" with that much intelligence

    It's probably just a collection of dusty dead Aliens.

    Of course there aren't any flying saucers...because there's no such thing.
