Area 51 Exempt from Environmental Laws
Bush Exempts Secret Base From Environmental Laws
That super-secret Air Force base near Groom Lake, Nevada -- purported site of everything from captured aliens to the highest of high-tech aircraft -- has been exempted by President Bush from environmental laws that would disclose classified information regarding base operations.
Bush judged that "it is in the paramount interest of the United States" to prevent disclosure of information about Groom Lake.
President Bush's decision about Groom Lake was made last September and published December 24 in the Federal Register.
