Aliens Are (Maybe) Finally Knocking. The Pentagon's Plan Is Underwhelming. - Mother Jones

SETI is looking for alien signals and every once in a while we get a hint of one that may be produced by an ET civilization. Despite this optimism, no one seems to have a plan what to do if extraterrestrials not only reached out to communicate, but showed up on our doorstep. Would we follow the lead of sf movie and just fire away? Granted the possibility of such a scenario is tiny, regardless of what people like UFO lobbyist Stephen Basset says, it doesn't seem to bother the DOD which has more pressing problems on its hands.
