Like they would if it was about foreign threats, and not about extraterrestrials or NHI?
Because it looks to me like the government has been tracking these UAPs for a long time now, and has not been saying much about it.
"The government knows more about foreign threats than they let on" is basically how military intelligence works. And "finding out what they don't want you to know" is how counterespionage works. It's what the Russians and Chinese want.
