The second phrase out of their mouth has to be: "There is no threat to our National Security."
Now the only way they can back that up is if they (National Security Branches) actually have reversed engineered or developed a weapon that can be shown to actually 'take on' an alien craft.
Thus reassuring the American and World public that 'we' the U.S., are in no danger.
The third phrase out of an U.S. Government spokeman's mouth would be: "If these alien craft/visitors come in peace we will welcome them but if there intentions are anything but peaceful and harmless we will defend our nation and it's people by taking the appropiate action."
Soo, until the U.S. Government actually feels capable of either defending or managing a first strike ability, there will never be a public admission so as not to frighten us citizens!!
Can't have a government impotent to defend it's citizens from space invaders!
I think the Govt. Know absolutely nothing about ET.
Only the military upper echelon have extensive knowledge.
The Govt.Eg President/Prime Minister etc don't have a need to know.
'Elected' Governments deal merely with mundane politics,the military are the real power brokers.
Eisenhower spelled it out.Probably the last honourable man in western politics,imho.
Well put post though mate,welcome to the forum.
In all honesty,the decent majority of American folk are the ones to force the issue,for their right to bear arms is the biggest bugbear of the US administration,get rid of that,and the American people are finished.
One only has to look at the UK,to see a weak,sheep like people,with no power whatsoever.
