“As Senior Policy Analyst in 1977 at the Center for the Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute (now “SRI International”, Menlo Park, California), Alfred Webre was Principal Investigator for a proposed civilian scientific Study of extraterrestrial communication, i.e. interactive communication between the terrestrial human culture and that of possible intelligent non-terrestrial civilizations. This proposed Study was presented to and developed with interested White House staff of the Domestic Policy staff of President Jimmy Carter during the period from May 1977 until the fall of 1977, when it was abruptly terminated.
“The over-all purpose of the proposed 1977 Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communication Study was to create, design and carry out an independent, civilian-led research compilation and evaluation of phenomena suggesting an Extraterrestrial and/or Inter-dimensional intelligent presence in the near-Earth environment.
“The designed outcome of the Study was to have been a public White House report, detailing the compiled evidence and evaluation, together with possible scientific models for the implications of the research. The White House report was to have contained public policy recommendations emerging from the evaluations and conclusions of the Study. These, if warranted, included transformation of secrecy regulations of U.S. military-intelligence agencies.”
“The scientific and public policy goal of the proposed 1977 Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communication Study was to fill a substantial gap in civilian scientific knowledge of the UFO (Unidentified Flying Object phenomenon), Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (EBEs), and related phenomena. This knowledge gap was created and maintained by excessive secrecy practices and regulations of U.S. Department of Defence and intelligence agencies in the various generations of its UFO-programs since the late 1940s, including but not limited to Project Grudge and Project Blue Book, as well as other alleged secret programs.
“Historically, the U.S. government and research agencies proposed for the 1977 Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communication Study were:
• White House – Principal sponsorship and policy coordination of the proposed Study.
• NASA – Consultative line agency regarding UFO and Near Space phenomena, including terrestrial-UFO or EBE interaction.
• National Science Foundation – Advice and consultation by the National Science Board.
• SRI International – Center for the Study of Social Policy – Principal Investigators of Study.
• Scientific experts on Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (EBEs), and related phenomena – Scientific Advisers”
