I believe that it's as simple as they really just don't know.
And as Zorgon said, if they did know, and then denied it, they'd be lying.
So why has no world leader not come out and confirmed that there is no evidence whatsoever of alien contact with this planet? I'm talking about a world leader putting his reputation on the line and basically telling us...... all we are deluded or misled............but they haven't ..........yet!.........................why?

That shadow government would never put people or leaders in power in any country that they would not be able to control, through pressures of all types like political, rhetoric, memetic, mind control, even plain old you would lose your job if you even think of steeping out of line.
Maybe that's happening? A simple "Think of the possible consequences if you go out there today and reveal to the whole world that they're actually here, beyond a doubt."
The simple fear factor would probably keep most of them quiet without a problem, and that's without even mentioning threats.

That's not how it works. Why don't they announce, categorically, that there is no evidence the Flying Spaghetti monster exists? Or the Yeti? Or a live Elvis?
If Governments spent their time announcing what doesn't exist... they wouldn't get any work done.
