At that level who decides what the President needs to know? I have no idea. My guess someone on the National Security Council,
or one of the Intelligence Agencies.

Seems like it was Jimmy Carter who made it a campaign promise to find out the truth about UFO's and to inform the American people about them once he did.
This all but died as soon as he took the oath of office. I'm sure he was told either he didn't want to know the truth, or was told the truth and decided it was too big to tell everyone else about it.
It's called plausible deniability. Basically, you don't want to know whats going on there, because if you did, then it can be used against you. it's also hard to cover up, what you don't know about.
I'm also pretty sure any President who wanted to could go to Guantanamo, but chooses not to go now for the same reasons. They don't want to know what is going on there.....

One quick question. Does the US President have authority to visit Area 51 / Groom Lake without any permission whatsoever?
