So that's your answer, if you don't like it shoot it down. Craft, no matter whos, alien or not, buzzing around anywhere, war ships, secret installations, etc. are NOT a threat till they do something to be a threat. To shoot down any unknown craft would be like poking a hornets nest. If it is another race of beings they might be far ahead of us with their weaponry so to antagonise and make an enemy just because you didn't want them to look at you is very, very dangerous and could be disastrous for the whole human race.
We have had this similar discussion about Russian aircraft flying very near the UKs airspace.
As usual i will say why all the fuss, what can they see or discover that they can't see on Google Earth. They're not going to attack and till they do it's a fly by.
The pentagon denies that they would test new technology against their own forces without telling them they were doing that. In fact we can cite cases where such tests have been announced. But, that's not the best test of a technology which is designed to baffle or confuse the enemy, and in such a case you might not want to announce the test.

Is it really a wise thing to do, from the point of view of the crew of the naval vessels, and most especially the F-18 pilots, to drop them into such a situation, unaware of what they're really up against, unarmed, and if this scenario is in fact true, all of the personnel would've have been deceived (by omission of fact) about what they were encountering.
That's a false dichotomy, meaning those aren't the only two options. Lots of people who tell the truth from their own perspective, are wrong about what they think happened. Probably with nearly all alien abductions that's the case, if not all. The toll bridge operator nearby who should have also seen what they saw didn't see it, so that's not evidence in favor of their story, but that doesn't mean they were lying. I think most abductees really believe their own stories are true from their perspective, but that doesn't mean they were really abducted by aliens. Human psychology is far more complicated than your simplistic questions.

1. If Parker and Hickson were lying, where's the evidence?
2. If they weren't lying, then what country on earth got around Moore's Law and had the technology described?
...Parker's corroboration of the tale was likely due to suggestibility because he initially told police he had "passed out at the beginning of the incident and failed to regain consciousness until it was over", a claim supported by Hickson during his To Tell The Truth appearance
