What would be reasons for our government or any government covering up/denying their existence?
The simplest explanation, in my opinion is a combination of these three:
1) they don't know for sure. And any issues may be so compartamentalized that nobody really has any clear picture.
If you've worked in government you know that one group can easily have no idea what some others are doing, or have antithetical agendas. Government
is made up of the same people as you and me. They do not have ESP. They do not have omnipotence. They go to and back from work. They worry about
their pension (very important for government---they can take it away if you are bad) and their school district.
2) what do they have to gain for saying more, since there isn't anything anybody can do about it?
One thing needs to be kept straight. If there are ETs coming here, then the primary cover-up is theirs. ETs deserve 96% of the blame for any
cover-up and the confusion and fear.
Of course it could have been otherwise. They could have radioed from orbit, said hi, attempt communication over months, and when enough mutual
understanding was possible, they land.
And then the open diplomatic relations with us. They put our transponders on their craft so we know where their aircraft are so they don't hit
We negotiate the rules of flying in and out.
