Taking the standpoint that crashes of UFOs would not kill the pilots because of their technology should be so advanced as to save them is like someone
in BFE saying people in America should never have to move a piece of furniture to retrieve and object they dropped behind it.
Or that, since they developed the ability to fly through the air, crashing in an airplane shouldn't kill the occupants.
All of the technology in the world cannot solve some of the most basic problems. That, or it's simply impractical to develop such technology.
Without knowing what technology alleged alien craft are using - it's rather hard to use such logic to verify/dismiss their presence.
As to whether or not there is a "government coverup" - There are several possibilities:
The first is a resounding yes. I don't really believe that to be the case - or if it is, then the actual number of 'genuine' cases is very small -
only a few. The rest are bogus or hyped up claims of some other event of terrestrial origin.
The second is a mottled yes. Certain separate commands and initiatives have likely existed at separate times with the objective of locating and
analyzing presume extra-terrestrial artifacts. These programs likely did not share much information between them, and were compartmentalized to the
point that very little of anything is actually known by a central authority. The spoils and truth all sit in some intentionally mislabeled box in a
warehouse and the programs that utilized them have since been discontinued due to lack of results (only to have a similar program get funded a few
years later with a different higher-authority backing the initiative, but being ignorant of the previous program).
That is a more likely scenario - and, again, would require the actual number of crashes to be quite small.
Of course - one also has to take into account the era when many of these crashes were reported. The U.S. and Russia were in one giant arms race and
tensions were high. Civilian authorities would have relayed details about any type of crash (and still do). Every command that would respond to such
a call had contingencies for dealing with classified material - and if it was unknown, general presumption is that it was a classified project - or
something of Russian design. Someone gets woken up and told "We found someone's toy" and custody is eventually turned over to a proper authority.
If it were presumed foreign or Russian - it would be directed to places with the objective of convincing the Russians we didn't have their toy, and
figuring out, exactly, what it was and how it worked. If it were of ET origin - then it probably go filed away into "we don't do that here"
So, it's possible a few ET crashes ended up under our microscopes, somewhere. As for why there would be no shreds of evidence - there's quite a bit
of clean-up that goes along with military crashes (no one cares about the Shuttle's technology, and, its 'crash' was under quite a bit of a
different circumstance). Depending upon what an ET craft is made out of - it may not require much clean-up. There are just too many unknowns.
The third possibility is that there is no government cover-up, and they don't know anything.
And the fourth is that a non-government agency/institution is responsible - which is not entirely likely, but could be the case in isolated incidents.
There is more going on out there than just the government. However, they would need to be a very large and very organized institution. The only
types of institutions I could think of would be large corporations with operations across the continent. ... Which pretty much narrows it down to
Walmart, McDonald's, Burger King...
Honestly, though - Walmart is probably in a better position to be orchestrating such elaborate coverups than the government... who wouldn't want to
be the one to reverse-engineer alien technology and patent it?
