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.

Clarifications on Sources Revealing UN Secret Meetings
on UFO’s & Extraterrestrial Life

Clarifications on Sources Revealing UN Secret Meetings on UFO’s & Extraterrestrial Life
I received a further communication from Clay and Shawn Pickering (reproduced below) regarding their effort to clarify what has transpired so far concerning the secret meetings held from February 12-14, 2008 at the United Nations New York headquarters. Their clarification emerged from more recent discussions with their source, currently a member of the diplomatic corps with a background in the US military (Source A) who initially disclosed the secret meeting(s). Their comments offer a useful summary of what Source A has revealed so far, and the importance of his testimony. Given that a second source, Gilles Lorant, has publicly emerged with testimony of what happened at the UN UFO meetings, there is now a way to compare the two testimonies. We can now identify similarities and inconsistencies between the two testimonies to determine the credibility of the sources, and what actually occurred at the meetings.

To begin, it’s important to note that while Source A has revealed his professional credentials to Clay and Shawn Pickering, and to Robert Morningstar, (see http://www.ufodigest.com/news/0208/un_ufo.html ) Source A has chosen to remain anonymous. This makes it difficult for public verification of his background and reliability. In contrast, Gilles Lorant, after initially releasing information anonymously, came forward to publicly reveal himself. Lorant’s public emergence made it easier to confirm his credibility as a primary witness to the UN meeting. His professional background as an auditor associated with the Federation European AIRPLANE (FEA) helps support the reliability of his testimony. A number of prominent French researchers also came forward to support Lorant’s credibility and/or professional background. These included Michel Ribardiere, President of the FEA, http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/exopolitics/message/632 and Gildas Bourdais who is a highly regarded French UFO researcher. Both Ribardiere and Bourdais regarded Lorant as a credible witness.

After intense scrutiny in France over Lorant’s credentials, controversy erupted over his claimed professional association with a prestigious French scientific organization, the Institute of National Higher Defense Studies (IHEDN). This led to the FEA requesting his resignation which Lorant submitted on March 6 www.federation-airplane.eu . The subsequent controversy over him inaccurately reporting his association with IHEDN, does raise a question mark over the reliability of his testimony. It may simply be Lorant overstated his professional association with IHEDN and that this does not unduly impact on what he claims to have experienced at the UN on February 13 and 14. Lorant’s public emergence and previous endorsements by independent experts gives some confidence in his reliability as a witness. Controversy over the precise nature of his professional associations, however, makes is unclear whether his testimony can be concluded to be any more reliable than Source A who remains anonymous.

It is important to note that Source A claims to only have attended a meeting on February 12, and did not refer to or claim to have attended any follow up meetings. In contrast, Gilles Lorant claims to have attended follow up meetings on February 13 and 14, but not that on February 12. So there may be some genuine differences between what these two sources encountered at the successive meetings in terms of confidentiality, security and attendees. It is appropriate to first discuss the commonalities between the two sources which will help confirm what transpired, and the significance of the information released.
