If the aliens wanted, they could broadcast directly to radios and televisions across the industrial world and get their message out. Since they do not do this, the aliens are cooperating with the government for their own reasons in keeping secrecy.
KING: Why do you keep studying it?
SHOSTAK: We're not studying aliens that might be invading our airspace. I don't think that the aliens are buzzing the countryside. I just don't think the evidence is good enough for that. I don't think it's proven. But I do think that there is something out there. There's clearly, to my mind, enormous probability that there's life out there, even intelligent life.
