Education[edit]

Webre entered Yale University in 1960 and graduated in 1964 with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Administration Honors. Webre's interest in law brought him to continue his education and to graduate from Yale Law School, where Webre had national scholarship, with a Juris Doctor in International law in 1967.[8] While studying at Yale Law School, he was also an Assistant in Instruction at the Economics Department of the U.S. Federal Taxation at Yale University (1965–1967). In 1967–1968, Webre traveled to Montevideo, Uruguay and became a Fulbright Scholar in Economic Integration.[8] In 1993, he entered the University of Texas at Brownsville and graduated with a Master of Education in Counseling in 1997.[8]

Early career[edit]

Webre became an associate with Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton, in New York City, in 1968. His responsibilities were international finance, tax, and litigation practice for investment banking, corporate, and public sector clients. In 1970, he joined the New York City Environmental Protection Administration as the General Counsel and Assistant Administrator. He designed and enforced environmental standards for air, water, noise pollution, and solid waste management. In 1973, he went to work as a consultant for the Ford Foundation’s Public Interest Environmental Law Program in New York City. He was in charge of evaluation and program recommendations in public interest environmental law program for grantees including Natural Resources Defense Council and Environmental Defense Fund. In 1977, he joined SRI International in Menlo Park, California, as a futurist for the Center for the Study of Social Policy. His responsibilities were the studies in alternative futures, innovation diffusion, and social policy applications for clients including the Carter White House Extraterrestrial Communications Study, the National Science Foundation, U.S. Congress (Office of Technology Assessment), the U.S. Department of Energy, and the State of California (Energy Plan).

Later career[edit]

Webre was a member of the Governor's Emergency Taskforce on Earthquake Preparedness for the state of California between 1980 & 1982.[citation needed] Between 1982–1987, he was a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) Delegate at the United Nations in New York.[citation needed] He was involved with the Communications Coordination Committee for the United Nations, with the UNISPACE Outer Space Conference (Vienna) and involved with the United Nations Second Special Session on Disarmament.[citation needed] In 1983, Webre joined the New York State Legislative Institute as Senior Fellow. He spent time on issues of public policy studies and legislative initiatives for the New York State legislature as well as the development of Graduate School of Political Management. In 1986, he became President of Legal Access Worldwide (L.A.W.) an international legal access and litigation management firm. In 1987, Webre produced and hosted "The Instant of Cooperation", the first live radio broadcast between USA and the then Soviet Union, carried live by Gosteleradio and NPR satellite on WBAI-FM.

From 2002 to 2011, he was the host of "The Monday Brown Bagger", a public affairs radio talk show on Coop Radio CFRO 102.7 FM in Vancouver, British Columbia.[9] He is a founding director of Canada's No Weapons in Space Campaign (NOWIS) established in 2002.[10] In 2004, he created the Campaign for Cooperation in Space (CCIS), an international organization where he works with others to prevent the weaponization of space and promote the transformation of the war economy into a peaceful, cooperative space exploration industry.[11]

Until November 2010, Webre was an international war crimes correspondent for Iran's Press TV.[12] Alfred’s investigative journalism has been featured on mainstream television networks such as TruTV, and PressTV.[13] In 2011, Webre was interviewed by Gov. Jesse Ventura in a TruTV Conspiracy Theory episode on the BP Gulf Oil Spill.[14]

Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission[edit]

Webre is a judge on the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission, which is an NGO organized in Malaysia to investigate alleged war crimes, particularly in the Middle East.[3] This body holds no official standing nor the ability to enforce its decisions.[citation needed]

Statements on Canada[edit]

In an interview with Iran's Press TV in December 2012, Webre stated that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is an "out and out Zionist" who is engaging in the “same repressive policies within Canada that Israel follows within its own territories against the Palestinian people.” Webre then described a conspiracy between Vancouver police and serial killer Robert Pickton "to commit ritual Satanic murders with high-ranking politicians" and claimed that the Queen of England abducted 10 Aboriginal children in 1964. Concluding his comments, Webre described Canada as “the ultimate Zionist state under the British Crown and under Israel.”[15][16]

Institute for Cooperation in Space (2001–2011)[edit]

Alfred Webre and Dr. Carol Rosin founded the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) in 2001, as an outgrowth of the former ISCOS, Institute for Cooperation and Security in Space.[10] The ICIS mission is to educate decision-makers and the grassroots about why it is important to ban space weapons. Through the help of former Congressman Dennis Kucinich, the Space Preservation Act was originally introduced into the 107th Congress on October 2, 2001 (HR 2977) and included provisions banning "extraterrestrial" weapons, as well as "chemtrails" and "exotic weapons systems" such as HAARP.[17] A revised Space Preservation Act (HR 3657) eliminating the prohibitions on space-based extraterrestrial, chemtrails, and exotic weapons systems was introduced to the 108th Congress on January 23, 2002. ICIS continues to lobby for a Space Preservation Treaty conference where leaders of the world would gather to ban space weapons. Former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer believes that this treaty would help put a cap on the war industry and open the door for international cooperation in outer space exploration. The end result would then be to transform the "war based" economy into a "peace based" economy.

The ICIS board was made up of various prominent individuals such as former astronauts Edgar Mitchell and Dr. Brian O'Leary, and formerly the late Arthur C. Clarke, General Counsel Daniel Sheehan and John McConnell who is the founder of International Earth Day.[18] Alfred Webre resigned from the board of directors of ICIS on January 1, 2011 to focus on a treaty to ban HAARP, which he alleges to be a weapon.[11]

Exopolitics[edit]

The term exopolitics, in the meaning of political relations within the scope of the universe, was discussed as early as in 1977 by Timothy Leary.[19] Webre believes that there is intelligent extraterrestrial life in our universe.[2] He is the author of the online e-book, Towards a Decade of Contact (2000) (which contains his first discussion of exopolitics) and the book Exopolitics: Politics, Government, and Law in the Universe (2005).[20] The exopolitics model functionally maps the operation of politics, government and law in an intelligent universe, and provides an operational bridge between models of terrestrial politics, government and law, and the larger models of politics, government and law in the proposed society of the greater universe.

Webre believes that as exopolitics posits, the truest conception of our human circumstance may be that we are on an isolated planet in the midst of a populated, evolving, highly organized inter-planetary, inter-galactic, multi-dimensional universe society.[2] He believes that we live on a planet that has been quarantined (the Zoo Hypothesis) and that we are now being given an opportunity to join the rest of the spiritually evolved universe society in peace, thus an opportunity to avoid environmental global self-destruction or global self-destruction through war.[2]

On March 10, 2007, Webre launched the Exopolitics Radio program, hosted by 1480 KPHX (which at the time was the Air America Radio affiliate, and Nova M Radio flagship station, in Phoenix) until the fall of 2008; the program remained in production until March 2009 and is distributed via podcast on its own website.[21] Guests on the program have generally advocated similar views to Webre, and many are well known within the UFO research/enthusiast (and to a lesser extent the New Age) community.[22]

In 2011, the Australian publication Veritas Magazine asked Webre to review the first decade of Exopolitics (approximately 2000–2010). The first decade of Exopolitics includes approximately 30 nations releasing their secret extraterrestrial and UFO files; "exopolitics" being nominated for word of the year in 2005; exopolitical organizations active in approximately 40 nations.[23]

In April 2012, Webre launched ExoUniversity.org, an educational entity offering online education in exo-sciences, psi-sciences, and exopolitics, with an Earth Day forum entitled "An Introduction to Time Travel with an Emphasis on Teleportation."[24]
