I've heard some argue that the US likely has made contact with, interacted with, and possibly signed treaties or pacts with ETs.
some say there have been pacts made where the US Govt. allows a certain number of citizens to be abducted per year for research in exchange for technology.
Also, I think the US probably has the best data regarding UFOs, as well as some technology probably derived from UFOs, so I think they would have the most to lose in regards to control and secrecy.
Then again, I see no reason why another government couldn't preempt the US and attempt to make contact with the ETs. The UK or Russia might be prime candidates, as they likely have information and data they aren't sharing.
If another major player did it, it might in fact force the United States to release its information, as it could reveal specific instances where the American Govt. covered up incidents and interactions.
(LONG SHOT) It could also be that the US forced other countries, allies at the time, to sign secret agreements or treaties that held the others to secrecy until the US revealed what they know.
Just postulating, but there could be a variety of reasons why people think the US should be first, although I see no problem with any other country trying to contact them first.
We're all on this planet together. It's kind of like the moon landing. While it was a triumph for the US Space Program, it was simultaneously a triumph for humanity. So I think it matters less WHO makes open contact, but that it actually occurs.
Threats to UN Diplomatic Community.
I raised the issue of two independent reports that diplomats had been physically threatened to remain silent about UN discussions on UFOs and extraterrestrial life. I emphasized that one of the sources involved a senior European diplomat that had relayed that the physical threats were genuine and diplomats were being silenced.
Source A mentioned that one of the reasons that the UN had been chosen was that the diplomatic community is very good at leaking information. This was an important consideration in the controlled leakage initiated by the admiral and other senior Navy officials "to gauge the responses." In particular, they wanted to see the public response to the UN disclosures, and also the media response.
The choice of UN ambassadors to receive the information was a strategic choice to help move forward the disclosure process. All ambassadors were fully briefed by their military liaisons on what transpired at the Upstate NY and European meetings. The Ambassadors were therefore an important part of the controlled leak.
Source A said that the world is hostile to extraterrestrial disclosure. They are trying to find out where the hostility is coming from and whether it can be neutralized and reduced.
Source A confirmed the independent reports that UN diplomats were being threatened not to reveal to the public anything about the secret UN meetings discussing extraterrestrial life.

Well, they’re all in it together! Remember, the US controls all the purse strings. The World Bank, IMF etc. If they don’t toe the American line then no aid, no doles! And they control the UN too, to a large extent.

I've picked up from just about everywhere, including on ATS, that a clear assumption is held that the US is, and should be, the leader of Earth's nations when it comes to making contact with ET civilisations. Why should that be I ask?

Dr Steven Greer has recently announced that one European Government has approached him to help organise a major contact event.

I'm sticking this here because I don't feel like starting a new thread just for this.
On Fox News just now 9:45 a.m. EST Nick Pope is saying that when UFO's appeaar the Royal Airforce would engage in combat if they felt there was a threat and that the UK has been trying to shoot down UFO's so they can prove UFO's are real. He said they have had Dog fights with UFO's and over the next year all information should be released.
He stated that the UFO's have deactivated the pilots craft.
