I don't believe abductions are conducted only by Aliens.
I believe our Gummint gave permission for those abductions to occur.

Currently, the Air Force’s stealthy fleet is limited to a
small force of B-2 bombers and F-117s, which may be inadequate to defeat future generations of air defense systems coming online. In addition, they can only exploit their stealthy qualities at night, as they cannot effectively defend themselves during the daylight if spotted visually.
Another aspect of rapid air and space response is access to space. Today the United States cannot quickly get into space, and US space presence is not assured as space assets grow more vulnerable over time.
