I think a big, big part of it is misinterpretation and exaggeration.
The guilty party are the "credible witnesses" coming from within the government. Sure, they work for the government. Sure, some of them are fairly
high level authorities (supposedly). However, I think whatever tidbits of information float their way are either subconsciously or intentionally
distorted in order to generate buzz.
I.E: "John Smith, this document is for your eyes only."
John Smith then proceeds to read a file of information regarding a UFO and how it was not affiliated with any United States black ops program or
otherwise. The file also mentions, as far as they know the craft did not originate from the military of another country.
John Smith retires from his position, then starts giving candid interviews about how the alleged UFO could be piloted by the Zeta Reticulans and the
government knows all about it and their technology.
See the point I'm making?
Now I'm not saying all accounts are a result of factual distortion or exaggeration, but I would not be surprised if the vast majority of
"testimonies" are of this nature.
I don't think MiBs are needed. We have enough gullible people the world over, and enough people looking for their 15 minutes of fame to do the
"MiB's" job for them.
