If governments believe that UFOs exist in any capacity other than mistaken common (or rare) phenomena, you can bet your booties they've conducted
intensive studies of the subject matter. I don't think for a moment that the U.S. government isn't taking this very seriously, and all sorts of
studies are being done, and results logged.
Here is the thing though. I think that many who follow UFOlogy believe that governments have all sorts of knowledge (and even contact) with UFOs and
other spacefaring species. Not I, I believe they know they exist, but they have not made any sort of contact. It's the only reasonable explanation
I can come up with, for why they'd remain mum on the subject, and why disinfo outlets continue to downplay or ridicule the subject. Your job is to
protect your country, and yet you can do nothing about unknown objects with apparent amazing capabilities, flying at will over any part of our
airspace. So until they can figure out what they are, and what we can do, they take the practice of many governments througout history: tell your
people nothing. Why create a panic for something you have no control over? No, I think they'd rather dismiss it to the public, while they try to
figure out what their options are.
It's laughable because of the media and government responses to sightings. The military branches ignore it as if it's not worthy of attention.
After serving in the military for many years, I don't think for a moment that they really feel this way. So it's a ruse. But their attitude
generates a no-care attitude with the public. The media can't help but smirk when they report on it. Larry King is the only one I've seen recently
who takes this with a straight face and with serious attention.
Consider after the Phoenix sightings. After the mayor called a press conference, and was stating quite firmly she demanded some answers from the
military and government in regards to these sightings, a rep struts onto stage in an alien costume, as they declare they "caught the perpetrators."
She was outraged, and it was a classic example of making a joke of something very serious. Why would they even bother doing this if they did not
think there was something to worry about? Disinfo at its finest.
Scientists have treated UFOlogy with the same contempt, if only because it was a great way to hose your career: admitting you believe UFOs exist.
Most were of the mind that without hard evidence, it wasn't worth the time or effort. But of course, there are many ways to approach the subject,
but why don't they? Because of the way it's been portrayed to the public, and treated by the government.
Until either it must be dealt with (i.e. the ufo landing in some government buildings front lawn), or they have solid answers and a firm grip on the
situation, I think we'll see the much of the same. However, there has been a lot more visibility lately. Why? Is this a disclosure attempt (very
slowly done), or just more people realizing there may well be truth to it, as more people gain the ability to easily record these on video. The # of
countries opening ufo files, and the # of shows on tv makes me think something is afoot, but who can say.
