Documents from the Ministry of Defence classified archives show staff believed aliens could visit for “military reconnaissance”, “scientific” research or “tourism”.
In a 1995 briefing now published by the National Archives, a desk officer said the purpose of reported alien craft sightings “needs to be established as a matter of priority”, adding there did not appear to be “hostile intent”.
The unnamed official said it was “essential that we start with open minds”, explaining “what is scientific ‘fact’ today may not be true tomorrow”.
He also noted that the number of reports of “strange objects in the skies” increased dramatically after the Second World War, with most sightings coming from “farmers, policemen, doctors and lovers”.
Could the English Government Be One Step Closer to Disclosure?

I think it was a FOI act that made them release the files, but i think the US wouldn't let anyone disclose alien activity before they did it. The day it happens will be the biggest event in human history so i understand why they are not telling us, but we've come a long way where believing in religion isn't a must now, people are more open minded after all the films and TV programs made about them. I for one cannot wait when they tell us, if they ever do, it will change all our lives forever!
