For three decades, I have been a working journalist in America's most interesting (and arguably most corrupt) city. As with old buildings and whores, if you stick around long enough, you become somewhat respectable, and to my utter amazement, I have become the one of the most recognizable and most honored journalist in this wild and wacky state.

I do not think there will ever be disclosure, not by the US government anyway. They have lied far too many times, both to the public and to Congress, have misappropriated too many millions of dollars to keep the lie going, to ever come clean. If they were t o disclose even a little bit of it, I think a lot of people would go to prison.
I also think it would not make political sense to disclose. Any president who acknowledged this reality would be overwhelmed with followup questions. He/she would be accused of distracting attention away from other pressing problems. There is no such thing as partial disclosure. They couldn't tell us that ET's are real and leave it at that. People would demand to know more, and I think the administration would be paralyzed.
I also think there may be legitimate reasons for not disclosing. For one thing, disclose what? We assume the govt. knows more about UFOs than the general public, but that might not be true. It could be that no one really understands the big picture, and the parts that we do understand are profoundly disturbing. Plus, there are serious national security issues involved, and I could understand why some military adviser would argue that it is not in our interests to alert potential adversaries to the fact that we have the technology in hand.
At most, there would be a very small group of people who would know the essence of what is going on--something like this would be the most highly compartmentalized info in the entire government. I think there is a good chance it has been taken out of the realm of government, and whatever secrets or technology or wreckage that exist are more likely in private or corporate hands by now, which makes it even harder for investigators to get at the truth.
What if that small group of people in the know has heard something so terrible, so profoundly disturbing that it really would cause disruption of social institutions? I am a right-to-know guy and believe that whatever info exists, the public deserves to know, regardless of the consequences....but I still find myself asking---what if the truth is really bad, something akin to us being a fast food factory for some other beings, a stopover for yummy snacks, or a supplier of souls?
If disclosure happens--and that's a big IF--it will have to come from the visitors themselves and in a form that is indisputable. "They" are, after all, the true architects of the coverup. it starts with them. They could make their presence known if they wanted to, but they don't. it would be interesting to know what their reasons are.
