    Default Pine Gap Reveal

    What exactly goes on at Pine Gap is a great mystery, and naturally quite a few theories have sprung up over the years. One claim, put forward by a political scientist (from the prestigious Australian National University) some years ago, was that Pine Gap housed a special type of low frequency communication device that could maintain communications with the US, via the earth’s crust, in the event of a total electronic collapse. A truly last line of communication. See the article below. This certainly fits in with Pine Gap’s chief official role as a communications facility. The claims were published in a newspaper article in 1970, which also references a magazine article.

    To get to the point of this thread, I used the Wikileaks tool Herehttp://search.wikileaks.org/gifiles/...0#searchresult to search through stratfor emails for information about Pine Gap (and a lot of other stuff). Sure enough I came up with something small but interesting:

    So, Pine Gap indeed has a seisemograph, and a remarkably cool one at that. This may or may not be public knowledge, but I didn’t turn up anything online that mentioned a special seismograph at Pine Gap. Naturally, this only feeds the theory that was published in the 1970 newspaper article (which discusses also the more conventional idea of detecting nuclear blasts). Anyway, I just thought it was interesting.

    You can read more about the Pine Gap theories (actually a well written piece) here:

    Quote Reportedly, extending some twenty thousand feet below the base is a bore hole containing an ultra low frequency antenna which is apparently used for secret experiments

    There were a lot of whale beachings in Australia in the last decade (more than usual)and it was suggested at the time that the signals from Pine Gap (being low frequency and under ground/water) could be a contributing factor. There was some debate , followed by denials , but it all petered out. Presently Australia is entering enthusiastically into hosting military games and the later development of a base in the outback in conjunction with the US. None of this is secret, but none of this is given much publicity, or wasn't until a US aircraft discharged a load of petrol into the waters of the Barrier Reef recently.

    Personally I would believe this information about Pine Gap has some truth. It fulfils a function, and this seems as likely a function as most. Interior Australia is huge, virtually unpopulated and inhospitable for most of the year. It can hide a lot. It hid the bases etc necessary for the testing of nuclear bombs and the aircraft to fly them for the British, with only minimum disclosure to the Australian population. The same type of thing is happening again, mostly with the agreement of the majority of the Australian population--- well that is until the Reef gets polluted again, people got cross about that!



    *** I was wrong --- It was BOMBS (empty we are told), not petrol that was dropped on the REEF!!!! Phew! I feel so much better to have remembered that!!!!!
