Other Upcoming Events
Monday, 6 March 2017, 6:30 pm - Washington, DC - Brian Regan: The Spy Who Couldn't Spell at the International Spy Museum
Before Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, the largest theft of government secrets was committed by an awkward, unassuming American Intelligence agent: Brian Patrick Regan. Join award-winning writer Yudhijit Bhattacharjee as he takes a probing look at how a learning disability, a lifetime of ridicule, and a serious cash shortage shaped Brian Regan's decision to betray his country. Bhattacharjee's research for his new book The Spy Who Couldn't Spell: A Dyslexic Traitor, an Unbreakable Code, and the FBI's Hunt for America's Stolen Secrets reveals how Regan engineered a meticulous strategy to download, copy, and bury thousands of pages of classified documents from the National Reconnaissance Office that he planned to sell; how he deployed a brilliant multi-layered encryption system to mask his communication with foreign governments; and the old-fashioned detective work that finally led to Regan's capture.
Tickets: $10. Register at www.spymuseum.org
Wednesday, 8 March 2017, noon - Washington, DC - The Spies of Palestine: Love, Betrayal, and the Heroic Life of Sarah Aaronsohn
Sarah Aaronsohn was born as part of the first wave of Jewish immigrants
who fled the pogroms of Russia and Eastern Europe in the 1880s, settling
in the province of Syria-Palestine. By the outbreak of WWI, her family was
one of the area's most prominent. Join author James Srodes
as he discusses his newest book which describes how the Aaronsohns came to
side with the Allied forces and form the NILI espionage organization to
spy against the Turkish Army. Late in the war, Sarah assumed command of
the spy network as their penetration of the Turkish Army reached a
critical juncture. The intelligence gathered by NILI was crucial for the
British in liberating Palestine, the first dramatic Allied victory; and
Sarah's tragic end would prove important in holding the Allied victors to
their promises of a new Jewish state.
