The City of Canada Bay Heritage Society invites you to join us to hear a talk by David Rosenberg on Pine Gap at the City of Canada Bay Museum on Saturday, 2nd November, 2019 at 1:30 for 2:00 pm sharp.
David Rosenberg worked for the NSA for over twenty years – including eighteen years as an American officer at the Joint Defence Facility Pine Gap. He is the technical and creative consultant to the major Screentime production Pine Gap, an original series for Netflix and the ABC. In 1966 Australia and the US signed a treaty that allowed the establishment of a jointly run satellite tracking station, just south of Alice Springs. For more than fifty years it has operated in a shroud of secrecy and been the target of much public and political controversy.
David Rosenberg, a US high-tech spy who worked at Pine Gap for 18 years, was the first to speak out to give an insider’s account of what happens behind those locked gates, in the middle of the Australian desert. Our speaker details his career with an American intelligence agency during the tumultuous period in history that covered the terms of three American Presidents, four Australian Prime Ministers, the end of the Cold War, a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan, two wars in Iraq, genocide in Rwanda, as well as the “War against Terror” and the emergence of North Korea as a nuclear-armed nation.
