"In addition to commercializing the Exopolitics Institute, Salla and Whitecliffe are involved in occult activity on the lunatic fringe of UFO contacteeism. Here, beaming broadly, they participate in an 'initiation ceremony' in Zacatecas, Mexico led by self-described shaman and contactee, Don Hector, with others clad in white."
The Exopolitics researcher whose ground-breaking book Exopolitics: A Decade of Contact founded the field of Exopolitics – the study of relations among intelligent civilizations in the multi-verse – was blocked today from exposing the flawed ET-related research and gate keeping of Michael Salla.
Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd was unilaterally and without notice blocked by Michael Salla from posting onto the e-list of the Exopolitics Institute, of which he was a member. He and Mr. Salla had exchanged several posts during which Mr. Webre (1) challenged Mr. Salla’s two-year unreasonable refusal to debate the existence of life on Mars based on the NASA Mars photographs; and (2) highlighted his disservice to the science of Exopolitics with his “Source A” research in which Mr. Salla gave extended public credence to a series of hoaxed secret meetings at the United Nations on ET disclosure.
Legal Notice to Michael Salla and Angelika Whitecliff
In a January 25, 2011 legal notice to Michael Salla and his spouse Angelika Whitecliff, Mr. Webre wrote:
“Michael Salla and Angelika Whitecliff - I am writing to you as the beneficial owners of the "Exopolitics Institute."
“My position is that this originally intended community-controlled Exopolitics organization was, in fact, illegitimately absconded with by you both in a covert "run for the courthouse steps" after enrolling me and others in a false dialogue as to what was to have been a community-controlled non-profit think tank.
“In fact, this organization is de facto a part of Michael Salla's and Angelika Whitecliff's commercial enterprise.
“The illegal and improper blocking of my posting privileges was undertaken by Michael Salla in order to further protect himself from being exposed as to his faulty Exopolitics research, and his intentional gate-keeping on the issue of life on Mars research.
“These actions are to the detriment of the science of Exopolitics that my original research founded in the book Exopolitics: A Decade of Contact written in 1999 and 2000, from which, starting in 2003, Michael Salla stole intellectual property without proper crediting of copyright.
“Please remove my name and my books from any further association with your beneficially owned, de facto commercial enterprise.
“You can rest assured that your attempts to demean the science of Exopolitics will end in ignominious failure, and that a growing group of legitimate, truth-oriented researchers have caught on to your covert actions.”

Salla’s Actions Against Life On Mars Research
As part of the exchange leading up to Mr. Webre’s legal notice was Mr. Salla’s unexplained refusal to sit on a roundtable with Andrew D. Basiago and Alfred Lambremont Webre in Kona, Hawaii during the week on June, 19-24, 2011, when Mr. Basiago and Mr. Webre would coincidentally be in Kona for a weeklong seminar.
Alfred Lambremont Webre wrote to Michael Salla (on January 24, 2011),
Michael - Hi! That is very unfortunate [that you refuse to participate in a life on Mars roundtable], because we can bring our laptop with a high-quality entertainment level chip in it, the same we used for Televisa and Jaime Maussan and the documentary that was seen by millions of people on the eve of the Exopolitics Week at Colima, Mexico.
I do not understand the below back peddling. This seems like academic game-playing that may have gotten you points at American University but in our field it seems to me is directed at stifling exchange of views and research.
This is not a panel that is part of the Seminar. This would be in a room with the three of us present. You can view the images, cross-examine Andy and myself, and we can do the same with you.
All of this process can be recorded via video and we can publish it for the
public to see.
I think that after two years this is a healthy process to engage in, don't you?
What do you have to lose?
Besides, you are way off base in your misstatements about life on Mars research from the NASA Mars rover images.
Here is my response to each of your arguments:
1. Martian Plesiosaur - Andrew D. Basiago has publicly stated he has been on
Mars twice in 1981, once in the company of Courtney Hunt of the U.S. Central
Intelligence Agency. During the visit to Mars with Hunt, Andy and Hunt were
confronted by a Martian Plesiosaur a short distance from the entrance to the
U.S. underground base on Mars where both had landed via teleporter from El
Segundo, California. Both Andy and Courtney Hunt made a dash for the entrance
to the underground base and reached it safely.
Reference: Red Ice Radio:
2. Richard Hoagland as NASA Mars rover image expert - Richard Hoagland has never analyzed the NASA Mars rover generation of images, and has no expertise with regard to NASA Mars rover evidence of life on Mars. In fact, Hoagland has pointedly chosen to forego analysis of the Mars rover photographs of life on Mars.
3. Tom van Flandern (1940-2009) - Tom van Flandern's image analysis was of
Cydonia and the face on Mars using the Viking generation of satellite images.
His conclusions supported Hoagland's thesis that while there was an ancient
civilization on Mars, there is no present civilization on Mars. Tom van
"We've shown conclusively that at least some of the artifacts on the surface of
Mars were artificially produced, and the evidence indicates they were produced approximately 3.2 million years ago, which is when Planet V exploded. Mars was a moon of Planet V, and we speculate that the Builders created the artificial structures as theme parks and advertisements to catch the attention of space tourists from Planet V (much as we may do on our own Moon some day, when lunar tourism becomes prevalent), or perhaps they are museums of some kind. Remember that the Face at Cydonia was located on the original equator of Mars. The Builder's civilization ended 3.2 million years ago. The evidence suggests that the explosion was anticipated, so the Builders may have departed their world, and it produced a massive flood, because Planet V was a water world. It is a coincidence that the face on Mars is hominid, like ours, and the earliest fossil record on Earth of hominids is the "Lucy" fossil from 3.2 million years ago."
Tom van Fandern did not engage in image analysis of NASA Mars rover photographs and he had no hypotheses about or expertise in the analyses of the Mars rover generation of images of life on Mars.
3. Standing of Andrew D. Basiago as Mars rover image analyst - Andrew D. Basiago has examined the raw data from the NASA Mars rover photos and has identified images of indigenous Martian humanoids, animals, statues and structures in these. Moreover, he has been to Mars twice and has personally experienced a number of these species, structures, and statues while on Mars. Andrew has assembled a group of active Mars rover life on Mars researchers. That you have never heard of eminent researchers like Andrew R. Stec (who was invited as an honored guest to the 2009 X-Conference in Washington, D.C.) or Lewis Michael Rhinehart bespeaks of the state of your knowledge of the field of life on Mars research.
I do not understand your reluctance to sit in a room across from each other with the actual images on a state-of-the-art screen and let the world judge the state of expertise of each of the participants.
After all, it is rather serendipitous that we are in Kona.
In Light, Alfred ;-)
Salla Cuts Off Debate That Would Expose His Hoaxed Research About ET UN Meetings
The specific post of Mr. Webre’s that led Michael Salla to illegitimately suspend him raised issues of Michael Salla’s extensive public research on a supposed secret series of extraterrestrial briefings at the United Nations that were eventually shown, more probably than not, to be hoaxes, to the great embarrassment of Exopolitics.
In order to stem any public discussion of the Source A research debacle and his role in perpetuating public hoax, Michael Salla quickly and unilaterally cut off all posting privileges and further debate, resulting in Mr. Webre's legal notice.
Alfred Lambremont Webre wrote at 12:34 pm PST on January 25, 2011,
Hi, All - I happened just now to be researching the issues of ET disclosure, specifically the issue of disclosure as a Zero Sum Game.
Serendipitously, I came across the following article by Capt. Robert Salas, who as many of you know like myself was a Disclosure Project witness.
The title of the article, which received wide circulation at the time and is still widely quoted, is:
"Exopolitics, By Its Current Methods, is Doing More Harm Than Good . . ."
The full text of the article is instructive.
"Tuesday, August 04, 2009
"Robert Salas: "Exopolitics, By Its Current Methods, is Doing More Harm Than Good . . ."
"By Robert L. Salas
Dr. Salla seems to be saying that we should take in and analyze all input from every source in order to fully understand both the scientific and social aspects of the phenomenon. First, I don’t know how that is possible and I don’t understand what he means by `flexible social scientific techniques.' Does he mean accepting questionable witness testimony or documentation and using it to conjecture about a possible event? That seems to be what he has done with his Exopolitics Journal article (July 1, 2009) - Kennedy's Deadly Confrontation with the CIA & MJ-12.
"In this `research article' he links Kennedy's death with his fight with the CIA over UFO information. I do not claim that this is false or true but I reject the approach to drawing such a conclusion or implying such a conclusion through these `flexible social scientific techniques.' This is the kind of output from Exopolitics that I find objectionable because it creates fodder for those who would denigrate the UFO phenomenon.
"I admit I had to look up the word existential in order to try and understand what he meant by his accusation of ‘existential hysteria.’ The American Heritage Dictionary (1982 edition) defines existentialism as: "A philosophy that emphasizes the uniqueness and isolation of the individual experience in a hostile or indifferent universe, regards human existence as unexplainable, and stresses freedom of choice and responsibility for the consequences of one's acts." While I would not necessarily associate myself with the first part of this definition, I do accept the concept that we have freedom of choice and are responsible for the consequences of our acts. I am normally not hysterical about that but I suppose I could be driven to hysteria under the right circumstances.
"When I wrote my recent article criticizing Exopolitics I did not do it in a moment of poor judgment. Soon after the 2007 Exopolitics Conference, I contacted Dr. Salla by phone and in writing to express my disappointment with the Exopolitics movement and to emphasize that I no longer wanted to be associated with his group. I essentially gave him the same reasons then as I have done here.
"In those two years, I have not changed my opinion that Exopolitics, by its current methods is doing more harm than good in the effort toward disclosure. I thought about it a long time before deciding that a public critique of Exopolitics was in order.
"I am certainly not insisting on `strict scientific filtering mechanisms for witnesses and sources.' No one has any control over what people will say or what they will present as evidence. What I do ask is that each of us be responsible for what we present as fact, fiction or other when we make public statements about the phenomenon.
"In taking personal responsibility for improving the viability of the study of this phenomenon, we are all `UFOlogical gatekeepers.'
"Nowhere in my dictionary did I find a definition for Exopolitics. I did find a definition for Exobiology. It states, "1. A branch of biology that deals with the search for and study of extraterrestrial living organisms." Dr. Salla; unless you have access to an ET life form, what gives you the credentials to elaborate on the political implications of dealing with such life forms? Certainly, as many have done before you, you can speculate about what political implications disclosure would have on the world.
"If you are talking about human politics surrounding the phenomenon, then you are dealing with assumptions and speculations. Is that what you mean by a nuanced approach to the truth of ETH? Walk into any bar in the world and you will hear that kind of `nuanced approach' to the truth."
I had not noticed it when the article first came out. The sole researcher whom Capt. Robert Salas criticizes is Dr. Michael Salla.
There is no mention by Dr. Robert Salas of Alfred Lambremont Webre JD MEd and his research doing more harm than good.
In my travels around the world and on the Internet - outside of the EI - many people also criticize Dr. Salla's research to me for one reason or another, some valid and some not valid.
Likewise, a great embarrassment happened to the Exopolitics community in the judgment of many in the UFO community, the Truth movement, and the Exopolitics research community outside the EI through the matter of the so-called "Source A" and the secret meetings that were to have occurred at the United Nations that Dr. Michael Salla pursued over many months.
That Source A research by Michael Salla on the hoaxed UN ET meetings was widely and publicly discredited in many sources, including the following:
As a result of the Source A debacle, Exopolitics was publicly disgraced in many quarters and the name Michael Salla became a common term around the Internet for being duped in research.
My question is this - Why has not the name Michael Salla been brought up here, as mine was over the last 48 hours, and put into question as to his putative disservice to the "good name of Exopolitics"?
Salla Acts to Cut Off Exopolitical Cooperation
Just prior to Michael Salla’s illegitimate blocking of Mr. Webre, Mr. Webre and another member of the Exopolitics World Network in Exopolitics Germany had reached a cooperative agreement on international exopolitical activism.
Alfred Lambremont Webre had written on January 25, 2011 to a member of Exopolitics Germany,
Re: Exopolitical activism and Exopolitics as a science
Dear Robert - Hi! This is excellent news. I look forward to this and I will be

I also want to thank you Robert for engaging in a collaborative, constructive
dialogue with me that ended in a very practical solution in which each party in
in our community has a positive and "winning" role.
I am really happy that we now have a solution, and would encourage other
national Exopolitics organizations to do the same.
I am on the Board of Exopolitics Mexico and of Exopolitics Argentina and will be
meeting with our people in each country to draw up our exopolitical activist
agendas, memos and publishing these in Spanish and English.
I believe our dialogue and its proactive solution demonstrates that the dialogue
we have been having on this list for the past several days, tho beyond the
comfort zone of all of us including myself, is yielding good results.

Origins of Exopolitics
Mr. Webre and Mr. Salla have had a continual dialogue as to the origins of Exopolitics, the science of relations among intelligent civilizations.
One published dialogue can be found here:
In fact, Michael Salla, as a contract faculty at American University on January 20, 2003 published a 10,000-word research paper entitled “The Need for Exopolitics: Implications of Extraterrestrial Conspiracy Theories for Policy Makers & Global Peace.”
In that paper, Mr. Salla misleadingly sought to position himself as the originator of the science of Exopolitics.
The methodology that Mr. Salla used in so misleadingly promoting himself as the originator of Exopolitics was to improperly cite and acknowledge the proprietary intellectual and copyrighted property of Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, Med who had in the year 2000 published a full explication of the science of Exopolitics in Exopolitics: A Decade of Contact.
As a seasoned academician, Mr. Salla should have known that Alfred Lambremont Webre’s 2000 copyrighted work and intellectual property required him to fully acknowledge the source of his ideas in the body of his 10,000-word paper.
Instead, Mr. Salla, as is his covert style, illegally and unethically appropriated the ideas and concepts of Exopolitics without acknowledgment by placing these in exculpatory, de minimis footnotes, among other works that are not Exopolitics, to wit:
. Steven M. Greer, Extraterrestrial Contact : The Evidence and Implications (Crossing Point Publications, 1999). Richard Boylan, Labored Journey To The Stars: An anthology on human responses, governmental, civilian and Native, to extraterrestrial visitation, Rev., 2002. Alfred Lambremont Webre, Exopolitics: A Decade of Contact (Universe Books, 1999). His book is available online at http://www.universebooks.com/
 Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, Med, Exopolitics: A Decade of Contact (2000) an eBook published online at http://www.universebooks.com/exoone.html [URL no longer available].
Mr. Webre reiterated this January 20, 2003 unlawful and unethical violation of his copyright and appropriation of his intellectual property in his legal notice to Michael Salla and Angelika Whitecliff.
Salla’s Gate-Keeping Of Exopolitics: Cui Bono?
An open question that is being asked by a growing number of researchers in the Mars anomaly research field, as well as in the UFO and Exopolitics field is:
To whose benefit is the gate keeping in Exopolitics that Michael Salla is carrying out?
Michael Salla’s Exopolitics Institute, while on paper a research institute, is in fact a “mom and pop” commercial operation run from behind the scenes by Angelika Whitecliff and Michael Salla as an adjunct to their commercial Eco-Tourism and Conference businesses.
No discussions contrary to the Salla-Whitecliff commercial interests are allowed. Commentary on the Exopolitics Institute e-list slavishly follows Mr. Salla’s whim.
The network of Exopolitical organizations that the Salla-Whitecliff organization claims it runs is in fact the Exopolitics World Network, coordinated by Steve Bassett.
The More Unsavory Cui Bono?
Exopolitics.com will be following up with further investigative reports on Michael Salla and his gate keeping role in Exopolitics, including his suppression of NASA Mars rover life on Mars research.
