CORRECTION: A high level meeting of US leaders is taking place... regarding an extra-terrestrial being (an alien). Who attends? Here are the givens: They do not have this alien in custody or control (she orbits Earth in her vessel). They are in communication. She hasn't proved hostile. In fact, she returned NASA astronauts to Earth safely after healing any of their injuries. I currently have: The POTUS VEEP Secretary of State Secretary of Defense The Joint Chief of a Staff CEO of the top defense contractor. Who else should I include? I'm unsure if the secretary of each branch of military would attend or the top officers (General of the Army, Fleet Admiral, etc). Should I include the Director of the CIA? NSA?
