The government has been studying these things since fighters were being tailed by foo fighters during WWII. They know more than they are saying. One theory is that they are concerned for mass disorientation and unrest if people know the facts about UFO's. Then there is the idea that they do not want the public to be aware of just how insecure our airspaces are to these things and that they seem to have an interest in our nuclear facilities and aircraft bases in particular.
Another idea is that the government has some kind of advanced tech that they don't want other countries to be aware of for national security reasons. I find that hard to believe that they wouldn't have used that tech if they really possessed it.
We've just been through a Donald Trump Presidency. How much could it hurt or disorient the public if they knew what the government knows about UFO's after the debacle we have just been through.
I think the knowledge could set us free.
