MEPAG Meeting; Closed (again) to Taxpayers?

NASA MEPAG meeting #15 - First Information Circular

"This meeting is open to all members of the Mars science community, including international colleagues."

Editor's note: And just what does "all members of the Mars science community" mean? In the past this statement has been coupled with a statement that meeting is "not open to members of the press". Further inquiries revealed that the general public was not welcome either. At a time when Mars mission funding - and all space science funding is being cut - cloistered meetings aren't necessarily the best way to formulate strategy. If foreign nationals can attend, why can't U.S. taxpayers? (reporters pay taxes too).
