Spaced Out: This is cart and horse, not chicken and egg

NASA is holding some sort of “public meeting before a UFO report”.  My word, is this what NASA wants to waste its time on?

I may not be the most qualified person to comment on this, but these two things wishful thinking, not science:

“We don’t know what this is, therefore aliens!”

“Aliens exist, we just haven’t found them yet!”

I’m all for the search for life elsewhere, but as I may have said before, setting up unrealistic expectations only leads to a demand for results, impatience for not producing, or worse, some willing to fake results for the sake of their “career”.  There’s nothing wrong with saying life doesn’t exist elsewhere until we prove it.
