Under our very noses! An old in-game sound clip from Halo 2 (by the Prophet of Regret) sheds the only direct light we have on the Covenant motives for eradicating humanity:
"Most of those we encountered on our search were compelled to join our union, to take part in a movement that promised freedom for allegiance, salvation for service! But some, like the humans, chose to impede our progress, block our access to sacred sites, damage holy relics! For their transgressions, the humans shall be hunted until none remain alive!
Blocked access? Sounds like an ONI cover-up to me!
("Most..."? Who were the other races?)
