I think that governments will not come clean because it would mean them admiting that they are totally useless to control any situation. Moreover they (not religion) would lose their power to control us.
"credible", not "credibility".

If you think we are really being visited, why do you need the government to tell you what you think is real?
When new species are discovered, does the government have to give disclosure for you to believe.
Disclosure is a straw man argument to provide a reason why ufology cannot produce credibility evidence, and distract from most ufologists are con artists.
How many new species of insects and microbes are discovered every year? But you cannot produce evidence of human sized creatures that eat, poop, have DNA, and fly large aircraft that consume fuel and interact with the environment?

Obvious Answer: It’s not aliens from space. The people in favor of Disclosure, naively demanding the government come clean, have been incredibly myopic and simplistic about this. The issue must be much more fundamentally earth-shattering than a few midgets from space. It must be something that would hit the psyche of humanity in such a devastating manner that the think tanks are afraid of it, the insiders who know are afraid of it, and that those who know are so frightened of this that they are unwilling to tell the rest of government what the issues are. This must be a whole lot bigger than aliens from space. They’ve put a lid on this for a reason, and they must think it is a good reason.

But what if aliens came here 100 years ago, or 200...500 etc no reason why they would not just be another humanoid type species among us just like if the Neanderthals didn't die off.
