Dr. Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of 'Exopolitics', the scholarly study of the main actors, institutions and political processes associated with extraterrestrial life. His groundbreaking Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (Dandelion Books, 2004) presents the first scholarly framework for understanding the political implications of the extraterrestrial presence. His interest in exopolitics evolved out of his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its relationship with the undisclosed extraterrestrial presence. He cites evidence of as many as seventeen different extraterrestrial civilizations currently interacting with humanity in a variety of ways, with a number of other civilizations simply monitoring the Earth.

Growing Media Interest in UFOs - Is Partial Official Disclosure of UFOs as Classified Antigravity Vehicles Inevitable?

Growing Media Interest in UFOs - Is Partial Official Disclosure of UFOs as Classified Antigravity Vehicles Inevitable?

There has been much recent media interest in UFO sightings. In particular, there have been a series of interviews conducted on Larry King Live, the November 12, 2007, National Press Club conference, and the Presidential debate concerning UFOs sparked by Shirley MacLaine's revelation of Dennis Kucinich's sightings. This has done much to raise public awareness of UFO's. There have been those in the exopolitical movement arguing that in the interest of being "media savvy", the extraterrestrial element needs to be downplayed. For example, in January 24, 2008 Larry King Live show following up on the Stephenville Texas, UFO sightings, James Fox explicitly excluded discussion of the extraterrestrial issue and just focused on the UFO sightings themselves as "unexplained" phenomena. This replicated what happened at the November National Press Club conference that was organized by James Fox and Leslie Kean. The emphasis was on UFO sightings and the extraterrestrial hypothesis was not raised at all. That is a very dangerous strategy since it opens the door to the national security explanation that Michael Shermer discussed on the most recent Larry King show that UFOs may be classified craft that are only disclosed on a need to know basis.

I know James Fox and Leslie Kean mean well and believe that by focusing on the unknown aspect of UFO sightings that the right doors will open. However, they are now actively playing a gatekeeper role in how to best approach the UFO issue with regard to the mainstream media. They are being cultivated as regular guests and authorities on UFOs. It would be a shame if they continue to exclude discussion of the extraterrestrial hypothesis on the misplaced grounds that that is strategically the best way to deal with skeptics, get mainstream media interest, and gain public support for Congressional inquiries, etc. The CIA has used the national security argument in the past to dismiss the extraterrestrial hypothesis that UFOs are interplanetary in origin (which they claim was exploited as a cover to genuine classified projects), and will do so again to explain away the extraterrestrial hypothesis. Congress plays no significant oversight role when it comes to Waived Special Access Programs so what would a Congressional inquiry achieve if the US Air Force claimed that the sightings involved classified projects that are Waived SAPs?

We mustn't forget that credible whistleblowers have revealed the existence of antigravity craft such as the TR-3B that is approximately 600 feet wide, and can replicate the speeds and right angle turns of many UFO sightings. Also, Ben Rich, former Lockheed Martin CEO, said: "We now have the technology to take ET home." That suggests that classified craft now exist that can replicate the performance of extraterrestrial vehicles probably due to reverse engineering as Col. Corso explained in his testimony and book.
