"We need to prepare for alien contact" seems to be a phrase that has been repeating itself pretty often over the past year. Makes you wonder if there really is contact going to occur, and if the powers that be are "preparing" us for the event.
I think the more plausible case is that the internet has made the UFO case open to investigation by anyone. And the evidence, to any unbiased mind, points directly to the phenomena as having credibility. Its only just starting to settle in, and my guess is that in the next few years, more people than not will know that the phenomena is real.
I think that most world leaders actually don't know anything about the phenomena... if they have ever asked or tried to find out, it has probably been a "need-to-know" basis type of thing. Maybe some of them are taking this seriously with excitement; as it seems that they are being told by this panel that UFOs and Extraterrestrial-life are something that is "need-to-konw" for not only governments- but for buisness too.

Seems pretty fake. It would be plastered all of the news if there was any authenticity to it. Additionally, it just seemed really a whole like "there are aliens, forget the details lets talk about the making money".
A handful of web links isn't any proof. Need details about the aliens.

earthbound religion has no place with ET, methinks!
This took place in Saudi Arabia. The Qu'ran is sort of a big deal there.
Coming on the heels of President Obama SOTU address on 'sputnik moment', it comes as no surprise. TPTB have to release more information as technological advances are the driving power of economies. The biz leaders are the best to reap and tap such information releases, due to their organization size as well as the creative minds in their company. As long as any biz organisation has the intention and the brains to look into the extra-terresterial paradigm and find ways to evolve scientifically and technically, they will be 'helped' along the way. No more are biz people to scoff or laugh at 'saucers'. 'inter-dimension travel', 'emf wavelengths of data transmissions', 'antigravity', etc, etc. Much of past technologies had always came from the directions of private enterprise with 'help'. Times are changing. Debunkers of UFO and proponents of swamp gas, chinese lanterns, balloons, etc are sadly, like the arab dictators, are quickly finding their ground dissolving rather rapidly.

This "news" is so bloody laughably stupid.
Watch this, the allagory of Plato's Cave.
People who believe that aliens are the ones flying aerial discs are the equivalent to prisoners chained within a cave, watching shadows without the ability to really realize what is really going on.
Aliens are shadows. They are not what they appear to be, just like everything else in life that appeals to the lowest common denominator of society.
Seriously, alien believers are puppets, and governments are pulling the strings. If people are conditioned to be stupid, then they will be compliant.

Possibly one of the most important stories of 2011, and it's not even February yet!
I am amazed at some of the negative responses in this thread. To my mind, this conference and the effective 'announcement' it facilitated are staggering, and will have a massive impact on what we see and hear via our media outlets over the next 12 months.
