That was my first thought "What's so difficult about getting rid of the data.

Now I understand: If they delete the data they would be accused of covering their tracks. To prove that they were not malicious they had go have the relevant agencies review the data without the least indication that they were trying to delete evidence of... whatever.

Had they deleted the data, people would be speculating that they may have deleted proof of alien life and the resting place of Jimmy Hoffa.
