Have you all considered the reality that the major governments know for the aliens, all of them, that have come through and dropped in to say "hi" to us, and they governments are not allowed to announce this fact openly?
They can't. The ramifications are too high, we are not ready for it, period. they are watching us, guiding us slowly, on their time table, to enter the "bigger galaxy" This process has been accelerating, but we are still not ready. If the governments wanted to really cover EVERYTHING up, we would hear nothing at all, read nothing, find nothing. Sites like this wouldn't exist.
But we do get trickles, we ARE allowed to speak about the subject, make movies, write books. It's all in the plan. Everything the government does in regards to "UFO's" is by the play book. Every last bit of information out there is done so, on purpose.
Just wait till the flood gates are opened.

Very nice, great job.
During several space missions, NASA astronauts have reported phenomena not immediately explainable; however, in every instance NASA determined that the observations could not be termed "abnormal" in the space environment.
I wonder why that would be? It wouldn't be because UFOs are always in space would it?

OF Course there are contingency plans! The last thing the CIA, FBI, et al want is to be caught with their pants down. So each wil have a group of ATS planners to come up with a suitable 'response' (usually several) to exercise if (not necessarily when) a given studies impact or penetration should occur.
Much of this is merely face-saving in advance. Imagine the horror on the faces of the top brass if the President or some other official comes to them and states, e.g., "OK, gentlemen, they're really here now - what do we do"? The last thing they want coming out of their mouths is, "Gee, Sir, how are we supposed to know what do - we never thought about it"! BS - you can bet your last nickel that they are definately giving it a lot of thought and applying plenty of resources to the question. They're whole reason for existence is to play 'what-if' scenarios and formulate plans to deal with any potential threat or ANY potential contingency.
Even if none of the UFO stuff up to this point is real and there really is nothing to hide (which most of us on this site already presume to be false) the agencies MUST all still study and plan for their eventual arrival. To not do so would be failing at their mission. They may not broadcast this fact, not even internally, but specialists in Remote Sensing, Advanced Weaponry, GIS, Physics, Sociology, Propulsion/Aerodynamics, and many other disciplines are absolutley gathered in the recesses of such organizations specifically to have an appropriate response for the day Mr. President comes knocking with "the News".
BTW - Nice thread/links. Thanx...
