I think they would have to first of all make us believe that ET races exist for a few decades before they could try that.

I could see if there were actual alien contact, the government using the event to manipulate the people, but to outright lie about it and create an issue from nothing isn't very plausible.
Think about how many 'sightings' there have already been. They could have done this 50 years ago. All they would have had to do is build a ship and leave it somewhere claiming the beings are inside holding the human race hostage.
This is completely far fetched, if there is an alien crisis, it will be from actual aliens not made up ones.

Even if they could convince most people that an attack by aliens had occured, what would be the point?
Creating a false flag incident by a country with some sort of resource (oil, gas, gold) so the army can be sent in under the cover of self defence to steal or control the resource has a logic to it. Can someone enlighten me as to the point of a false flag alien attack. I can't see the point.
Dr. Carol Rosin the former spokesperson for the late Wernher Von Braun an ex-Nazi who played an instrumental role in the NASA space program, says a false flag alien attack is a distinct possibility. In fact Von Braun told her shortly before his death that the first threat would be communism, than terrorism, than giant killer asteroids and finally space aliens. The only thing is that all of these threats would be lies and used as an excuse to consolidate power and militarize space. Von Braun passed away in 1977, so it is interesting to see that these predictions so far have been correct. Of course, communism and terrorism were and have already been used as the so called threats and there’s little doubt that the threat of a giant asteroid crashing into earth or the threat of space aliens invading would further accelerate the world towards the militarization of space and a one world government.
