There does not have to be a global consensus when it comes to UFO's and in many respects there isn't. Different countries are releasing their own
UFO files independently and it would seem that the policies in relation to this also vary. The only running theme is that all documents seem to hold a
The secret is kept for the same reasons, its in that nations own intrest to keep it secret and this is what I believe gives the illusion of a global
consensus. What would a nation have to gain from revealing what they know ? If objects are being detected in your airspace that defy explanation do
you announce to the public that your ability to protect them is compromised ?
Other nations are investigating the same phenomenon so you would not want them to gain the upper hand by making public all you know. Furthermore, not
all nations will know exactly what UFO's are and their silence maybe out of sheer ignorance to the subject.
When it comes to technology acquired, you would keep it a secret for the same reasons that you don't post nuclear launch codes on the internet
alongside the specs for your latest spy plane.
There is at least a coverup of information to some extent. Most developed countries have made moves to declassify documents on the subject and all
rate the subject as important. However, the US, one of the biggest countries in the world state that they have nothing to hide in respects to UFO's
even though there is mountains of evidence to suggest otherwise.
