AlienTaskForce

The Alien Task Force is a branch of the USA military whose purpose is to search for and neutralyze alien activity on Earth. Unlike the FBI, the CIA, the MIB, the Department of the Paranormal or UNIT (and just like C.O.V.N.E.T.), the Alien Task Force was actually ignorant of whether extraterrestrial life existed or not, which presumably made them the butt of jokes in these other organizations.

They finally did manage to capture an alien, though, when they intercepted Gordon "ALF" Shumway trying to get a ride off-planet in 1990. After that, they kept him in captivity for a few years and ran a few tests, but didn't know what else to do with him, so they eventually released him.
