On 46th Anniversary, Survivors of Israeli Attack on USS Liberty Demand Congressional Inquiry

by Jason Ditz

Saturday marks the 46th anniversary of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, a Naval spy ship in the Mediterranean Sea. The attack killed 34 American crew members and wounded 171 others.

The incident came during the Six-Day War of 1967, during which Israeli occupied large chunks of territory from its Arab neighbors. The attack on the USS Liberty was America’s only involvement in the conflict.

The attack began with two Israeli Mirage III fighter jets attacking the ship, claiming they assumed the antenna was a gun, and began attacking the US ship with rockets. The attacks escalated despite the ship being unable to return fire in any form, with torpedoes hitting the ship and napalm bombs setting it ablaze.

12 miles is a draw

http://www.gc.noaa.gov/gcil_maritime.html The USS Liberty 12 miles out is a draw.. It's a spy ship. Israel knew it was a spy ship.

So your telling me that the planes are unmarked and the USS Liberty thinks they are safe? They are 12 miles out, on a secret mission, unmarked planes fly over head and the crew waves, while they sunbathe and BBQ on deck.. seems to me, they must have lost their minds to be waving at unmarked planes.. and being the planes are unmarked.. how do you know it was Israel?

I don't agree with your claim that Israel wanted us in the war.. I believe Israel has wanted us and others to stop entangling them and let them defend themselves and they prooved they wanted to defend themselves. We lean on Israel because Israel is better than us technology, military.. we need Israel to continue as an emplire.. Israel is not interested in being an empire. Israel is interested in establishing and sustaining a safe place for Jews who have been and constantly are persecuted by empires, including our own.

They are a Jewish-Democratic state and why someone like me can't become a duel citizen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_state

"seems to me, they must have

"seems to me, they must have lost their minds to be waving at unmarked planes.. and being the planes are unmarked.. how do you know it was Israel?"

easy. us companies dominate the weapons industry. you think for a second there is brass anywhere in the US that doesn't have a comprehensive knowledge of all the major players toys? get real.

keep calling this NWO/ANTIWAR.com/UN propaganda.. but i'll take this guys word over yours any day of the week.

Not without Israeli Intel

I think the dimbing down of America and entanglements, especially with the UN has made America dependent, rather than independent.

Israel wants indepence and prooves repeatedly, they have a superior military, superior weapons, intel and don't need to disarm their citizens and take away rights.. to where Israel is more free that the USA.

deacon's picture

israel wants independence ?

if they truly wanted that,then they would step up and say,we don't want any more american funds,we can do it ourselves
but israel has not done that,they just keep taking and taking,and we as a nation get to keep giving and giving
they have a superior mil,as we fund it for them
they have a superior weapons,as we give them to them
they have superior intel,as they have our reps in their pockets,and giving them information
and they use us as goyim,beasts of burden,chattle,and fodder for their
own ends
if israeli's weren't involved in 9-11,then they would not have had cameras set up to film that event,and they would not have been shipped
back to israel after it was found out who they were,they would not have had 2 vans full of explosives waiting to be used on our soil
israel after finding out it was their allies hip,would have stopped firing upon it,but this didn't happen,they wanted that ship gone,and all survivors dead,so they wouldn't have any witnesses
where does it say,put israel first,and all others second?
no where does it say that,and them churches that serve that up on a platter are liars,frauds and serve the devil
the israeli gov,is not spoken of in the bible,but the remnant of god is,and this is not the government it is a people,(gods people)
these are the ones who follow the word,and the commandments
the fed gov,and the israeli gov,do not follow this,but they follow their own,and this is not of or from god,it is though from man
and those who follow after mans laws,decrees or what ever,fall short, and do not follow after the heart of the creator
as the truth is not in them,the follow baal,the follow the owl,the fish,all of this is right out of babylon,and it is an abomination
too god
love your neighbor... by blowing them up,by bearing false witness
by using them as slaves
do unto other...,before they do unto you
love your neighbor...but love yourself more
do not murder...unless they are gentiles,serfs,paupers,goyim
israel is not our allies,they have infiltrated our very gov,for their own needs and this is seen and is witnessed by the duallies in office,and the laws they created to protect them,and this against us as a nation,and as a people as whole of the world

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

What did Ron Paul say?

Ron Paul said, "Stop entanglements, let Israel do what they want without our involvement". Netanyahu agreed.

Did Israel call the USA before they bombed the Syrian military base that had rockets from Iran? No. They took care of it. But we havew Kerry over there saying he's going to arm the rebels.. What does Israel say.. nothing. Why. because What Israel has said is they are not going to entangle themselves in Syria's elections.

Israel's Intel is par to none in the world. Israel does not need America. It is America that entangles its self with Israel.

I don't buy the 911 Israel story. It's apparent to me that WTC was bleeding money, was a white elephant, and there was no legal way to demolish the buildings.. This was a global elite job, not Israel.

I am not saying put Israel first. Do you think Ron Paul is saying PUT ISRAEL FIRST? Ron Paul says Israel is our friend. Why?

After USS Liberty why would Ron Paul say Israel is our friend?
After 911 according to you, why would Ron Paul say repeatedly Israel is our friend?
Ron Paul a coward to Israel?

Ron Paul said ISRAEL IS OUR FRIEND. I did the homework.. looked past Youtube propeganda and sought WHY?

Last night I watched a National Geographic episode on Israel. It featrured three families. a Jewish family whose family has been living in the same house for over 200 years and can date their history beyond. A Muslim family who has records of owning their house for centuries. BOTH claimed that they were good neighbors for centuries, Jews and Muslims living side by side. And the third family was very interesting, Franciscan Monks, many who were born in Palestine, and they all want PEACE.

The military industrial complexes do not want peace. Issues are stirred up by those who have never been to Israel, just HATE Israel and ALL people, Jews, Arabs, Caucasions, Chinese.. everyone in Israel they hate.

That's what I see here, defending HATE. There is none.

The Bible represents the key to SPIRITUAL FREEDOM. Jesus says, The world is NOT his kingdom.

There is much love for neighbor's in Israel. Do yiou homework. It's those who are not from Israel who damn Israel based on propeganda which goal is to provoke HATE.

If there is HATE in your heart, it's up to you to clean your own heart, not place blame and allow that hatred to grow.

deacon's picture

what did RP say?

and or what did he actually mean?
if i say i love china,iran,israel,russia ect ect
am i talking about the governments,or am i saying i love the culture,the people,ect ect,i never say nor mean i love their gov's
as that would be a lie
so what do you suppose RP means when he says israel is our friend?
do you think he means it the same way i do? that is the way i see it
as he would not say israel is our friend,and in the same breath
state their gov needs no funding
as the people of israel never see the money we dump into the military
so the people are our friend,this is how every other country says it also,but the gov's are a different story
you have stated you don't mind being wrong,this is where we differ
i hate to be wrong,but i admit when i am,and learn from it,and am a better peerson for it
i posted several links about israel on this thread alone,and i would bet you have not looked at any of them,because if you had,you might learn who actually created the gov,judicial,and who created the land of israel,and for what purpose
keep on accusing me of hate,this is so kind from one who doesn't know me,never talked to me in person,and hasn't paid attention to my words,and how i conduct myself with others here
i have no hate,but i do have truth,and i arm myself with it
and then i inform others what i have found,just as most people here do
so what do you think RP meant when he said israel is our friend?

USA is an Empire as Dr. Paul says

Sadly I see your comment as something Dr. Paul would never say.

I am half Jewish and I fight hard to expose Zionist crimes... for humanity all human beings including you my friend.

thanks legalizeliberty

those that are Jewish and stand up for the truth are brave. Many are in the dark as to the destructive force this group poses, unfortunately when some poeple do wake up, they go to the dark side and become neo-nazis & filled with hate. I must admit I was enraged, but my Christianty thankfully kicked in, but we need to be brave and expose the truth for the sake of the Jews to save them from themselves, I sense a mass awakening and the mobs forming, I pray this does not happen.

You are in the dark

Ancient Egypt, Babylon, Rome, European monarchies, Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, and now the anti-Semitism is being ramped up by TPTB again now that the USA Empire is set to collapse. Better scapegoat those Jews again.

You think Jews should "wake up" to the idea that Israel should be wiped off the map by the UN and radical Islam, so that we can again all be at the mercy of tyrannical dictatorships who will blame us for their crimes?

If you buy into the anti-semitism you are naïve.

Are their some Jews involved? Of course, like everyone else. Pharoah had the task-masters, as did Hitler, and Karl Marx (a "jew") states in his manifesto that the Jew must be eradicated because they are the root religion of modern Judeo-Christian / Muslim mono-theism... G-d.
If you erase the Jews you can erase the idea of G-d. The Statists want no authority greater than the State, and G-d is just that kind of authority.

The NWO are basically Nazis. What did they do?! Blame the Jews! And some here who claim to be "Liberty Movement" people actually endorse Hitler and the Nazis! Well then you endorse the NWO because they are the same people!

Keep blaming Jews like good little Nazis. You are either very gullible or are an infiltrator if you are spreading this garbage!

PEOPLE OPPOSING TYRANNY - Real Grass Roots!
Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

dude

did you read my post, I said many turn to the dark side and become neo-nazis. Sure neo-nazis dont like blacks etc but their primary goal in life is to fight the Jew. It can't get any simpler then that. I clearly said in my post that I didn't join the dark side when my eyes were opened.

The Jewish poeple are very much in control of things. Jesus was a Jew and I'm a Christian. It says very clearly in the Bible that every knee shall bow and every toungue will confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord and saviour. Thats my believe, but at same time I'm not gonna force my beliefs on others.

The fact that poeple can't openly talk about Jews as poeple talk about Muslims or even Christians shows things are very wrong. Do you see mass killings of Muslims even though there is negative debate around them. Yet there is this pent up energy and anger building against the Jews and I said clearly in my post that I pray it doesn't get to the point where the mobs are gonna gather and Jews need to allow debate, release the tension so to speak.

the problem is arrogance, this can be seen in the Bible the cycle of the Jewish poeple rebelling against God and then repenting and being re-conciled to God. Maybe instead of getting angry with me, get on your hands and knees and pray to God.

Isreal cannot be destroyed unless God wills it so, infact God can use any nations he wants to prevent this including America, but the bride of Christ has NO BUSINESS in killing innocents.

Re: "half Jewish"

Serious question: how does that work?

I mean, I never hear anyone say they're a quarter Muslim or half Catholic. I guess I just find it odd how a religious label so often gets used as a (vaguely defined) racial/ethnic one.

Thanks for asking

Half Jewish by birth only.

I see myself as Sufi Muslim Christian Buddhist Humanist poet ---> a Human Being.

Judaism is religion not a race

I am Messianic Jewish and I support Israel.

Do I agree with everything their government does? No.

But their government is usually a lot more justified in their actions than ours when it comes to military action.

PEOPLE OPPOSING TYRANNY - Real Grass Roots!
Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

So what you mean is

A parent was Jewish, but you're not, but rather don't see yourself as falling under a religious label? I can understand that, it's just that I hear the "half Jewish" thing and never really understood why that doesn't happen with other religious groups. Maybe it's just a cultural thing *shrug*.

I'm not Jewsish in any way, shape or form

Check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:WorldEmpires.png

Ok.. so the USA is an Empire.. so?

Sure beats many of the other empires on the map.

I am a zionist and I stand with Israel because Israel represents the underdog who will not hide and allow the empires to control it.

I have a thing for underdogs.. like Ron Paul.. and that goes for Israel too.

What zionist crime did Israel commit warning a USA SPY ship ILLEGALLY SPYING ON ISRAEL, to GET OUT and when they were MOCKED, and then defended themselves?

The fact the USA has HID from it's shame is sad. I love my country and am ashamed of this SPYING that seems to have grown to even Americans.

so should we give billions in aid to israel every year?

israels government has a bunch of serial killer loonys running the show which is sure to end badly because APAIC will drag America into it.

screw israel also the people who live there are insanely brainwashed.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

No

Israel doesn't need it. We need it because Israel is so far advanced and we are dumbing down.. aid to Israel is because we fear they are going to leave us in the mud.

Wake up to Israel. Drop the hate and fear and find something to LOVE about Israel.. if you can't do that.. it's on you, NOT Israel.

Agree with Granger

Pretty hypocritical of dailypaulers to condemn Israel for defending it's sovereignty from US imperialization and spying.

You Obviously Have Not Read The Facts

Granger, The U.S.S. Liberty was in international waters when they were attacked by Israeli torpedo boats and fighter aircraft. It was a clear sunny day, the ship was flying the holiday American flag which is larger than the normal steaming ensign, so there could be no mistake it was an American ship verses a smaller Egyptian cargo ship as the Israelis claim. Israel wasn't defending itself against a perceived enemy; they were attacking us, their ally. It was clearly a war crime.

Read about Zionist treachery against our own nation here (see: http://www.wrmea.org/wrmea-archives/170-washington-report-ar... )

and here (see: http://www.usslibertyveterans.org/ )

and here (see: http://www.ussliberty.org/index2.html )

and here (see: http://www.uss-liberty.com/2010/02/04/capt-richard-block-bre... )

The Israeli military frequently murders Palestinian men, women and children with impunity. Palestinians are denied basic fishing rights off the coast of the Gaza Strip where they live in an open air prison. In the West Bank Israeli settlers steal Palestinian land, and rip up their olive trees. They are no underdog, they are overlords to an oppressed people. Zionism betrays Judaism in the worst way. They've replaced love for their neighbor with conquest.

12 miles is border

The USS Liberty was a SPY ship and had NO business being there. I believe Israel on this issue, and why the USA has HID the TRUTH all these years.

Israel does not murder Palestinian with impunity.

Palestinians know they can not sell their land. It's against the law. They also know they need some income, and that 30K people a day tourists and people hoping to move to Israel becasue of the attacks for being Jewish in their native countries.. so BAD DEALS are made. Nieve settlers are offered land.. they begin to build, and then the Palestinian who sold the land REPORTS that it is an ILLEGAL settlement..Israel tears up the settler's homes.

Before there was Indian giving.. Philistine was long known for bait and switch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlQnfA4iReY

I suggest you do some homework. Seriously.. you belive in liberty, Palestine has none.. what's going on is American is buying propeganda to keep the area in termoil, that is what the elite want.

The United States Navy Has Every Right in International Waters

As does every other sovereign nation whether military, commercial, or personal private watercraft. No nation has the right to attack a vessel of another country in international waters unless it is to make war upon it. That's what Israel did. They made war on their ally, the United States of America, your country, Granger. How this escapes you is unfathomable to me.

You claim to believe Israel's explanation. Fine, show some historical references that you rely on to support your position. Here are mine.

The Liberty was in international waters.

During the attack it was operating as a neutral vessel and observing what was happening on land using sophisticated intelligence acquisition technology: (see: http://ussliberty.org/report/exhibit%25202-14.pdf). This map was created by the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) and it shows the Liberty was OUTSIDE the territorial waters of Israel at 17 miles off the Gaza Coast when it was attacked.

The Israeli Military Claimed They Thought the Liberty was the El Quseir

The El Quseir was an Egyptian freighter at 275 feet bow to stern with a displacement of 2,750 tons. The Liberty was 455 feet long and displacement at 10,680 tons (see: http://www.usslibertyinquiry.com/arguments/american/elquseir... ). The Liberty clearly dwarfs the profile of the El Quseir and could not be mistaken even from the pilots of the Israeli aircraft who were flying at attack altitude. The Liberty was painted battleship gray in color with large hull numbers (GTR5) painted in white. Israeli planes observed the Liberty three times and could not have mistaken that it was in fact, an American vessel

Israeli knew it was our ship and they attacked it anyways, unprovoked.

Finally, Granger, take a close look at these photographs (see: http://www.councilforthenationalinterest.org/uss-liberty-cas... ). These are the faces of some of the innocent young men who were killed by your beloved Israel. That’s right, Granger, the country who you show undying support murdered these American sailors and Marines who were on a surveillance mission. It was no mistake, it was a deliberate act to kill our servicemen with no regard for their lives.

How about another account of treachery against the United States?

In 1986 Jonathan Pollard, the American Navy employee who spied for Israel was sentenced to life for spying against the United States (your country, Granger, remember?) His disclosure to Israel single-handedly caused extensive damage to American national security as great as any other person in the history of espionage against the U.S. (see: http://www.nytimes.com/1987/02/19/us/damage-in-pollard-spy-c...). Pollard is considered a hero by many Israelis (see: http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/columns/moshe-feiglin/my-...). Did I mention he is a self-proclaimed Zionist, like you, Granger?

Still think this was just a mistake? Still don’t believe the Israeli military murders with impunity?

Fast forward to May 31, 2010 and read what the IDF thugs of the Israeli military did to a peaceful mission by sea to bring humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people trapped in the Gaza Strip open air prison (see: http://www.salem-news.com/articles/october052010/tour-okeefe... ). That’s right, Granger, I’m talking about the Mavi Marmara that was attacked by Israel, again in international waters. Nine unarmed peace activists were murdered. Here is a book written about the Mavi Marmara and the freedom flotilla that you can purchase on Amazon.com and gleefully share with your other Zionist friends (http://www.amazon.com/Midnight-Mavi-Marmara-Flotilla-Palesti... ).

Want some more? I got plenty.

How about Rachel Corrie who was murdered by an Israeli occupation army bulldozer driver in the Gaza Strip that was engaged in the illegal demolition of Palestinian homes (see: http://electronicintifada.net/content/photostory-israeli-bul...). The driver could have called IDF army personnel to have her removed. But no, he chose to drive over her and crush her body like a bug under his blade.

Israel tightly controls the fishing rights of Gaza fisherman (see: http://www.mintpressnews.com/israels-war-on-palestinian-fish... ). Prior to a recent easing, Palestinian fisherman were restricted to 3 miles off the coast to punish them. The Israeli Navy regularly abuses these fisherman who are trying to earn a living for their families (see: http://www.btselem.org/testimonies/20070319_fishermen_aresst... ). What right does Israel have to collectively punish an indigenous people?

This is the reality of Zionists, Granger. They murder Americans, Palestinians, Egyptians, Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis and anyone else that dares to challenge the perverted belief in their superiority over other human beings.

Perhaps Granger, you should rethink your 'special' relationship with Zionism.

Just answer one question

Why does the USA keep the USS Liberty a secret?

PS I supporteed McKinney and after the flotilla BS.. I see her risking her life and others, which I do not respect.

Furthermore, I believe Israel is very wise in how she protects herself from haters..

US Government and the Controlled Media Work Together

Granger, you know as well as I the Government hides from the American people a number of events for which they have had direct involvement in the past. Many of those acts were done not for the good of the country but for self-serving interests of lobbyist organizations.

The Liberty attack was covered up by President Lyndon Johnson to shield the American Zionist lobby from criticism. These organizations contribute a great deal of financial support to political campaigns to influence (i.e., bribe) American politicians to favor Israel domestic and foreign policy over other nations in the Middle East. That’s one reason why Israel receives foreign aid of over 3 billion dollars of American taxpayer money each year to bolster their military with the latest technology to bully, threaten and oppress other Middle Eastern countries.

Here is one of numerous official reports titled, "Findings of the Independent Commission of Inquiry into the Israeli Attack on USS Liberty, the Recall of Military Rescue Support Aircraft while the Ship was Under Attack, and the Subsequent Cover-up by the United States Government” entered into the Congressional Record of the 108th Congress (2003) of the United States by Congressman John Conyers, Jr. of Michigan.

Steps to find and read the document.

1. Navigate to the Congressional Record website and click on the 108th Congress (see: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/LegislativeData.php?&n=Record&c=108

2. Enter the following text without the quotes in the search bar, “In Recognition of Admiral Thomas H. Moorer”

3. Press the SEARCH key at the bottom of the screen.

One document will be presented that matches the search criteria. Select the document and read the report. Focus on item number 12 which I will excerpt here:

12. "That a danger to our national security exists whenever our elected officials are willing to subordinate American interests to those of any foreign nation, and specifically are unwilling to challenge Israel's interests when they conflict with American interests; this policy, evidenced by the failure to defend USS Liberty and the subsequent official cover-up of the Israeli attack, endangers the safety of Americans and the security of the United States."

Then read further in the report the sworn affidavit by Captain Ward Boston, senior counsel to the U.S. Navy Court of Inquiry. In his statement he demonstrates clearly this was a deliberate attack upon a United States naval vessel, that it was a cover-up initiated at the highest levels of government, that being the President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson. I will include the specific paragraphs from the report here:

“The evidence was clear. Both Admiral Kidd and I believed with certainty that this attack, which killed 34 American sailors and injured 172 others, was a deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew. I am certain that the Israeli pilots that undertook the attack, as well as their superiors who had ordered the attack, were aware that the ship was American.”

“I saw the flag, which had visibly identified the ship as American, riddled with bullet holes, and heard testimony that made it clear that the Israelis intended there be no survivors. Not only did the Israelis attack the ship with napalm, gunfire, and missiles, Israeli torpedo boats machine-gunned three lifeboats that had been launched in an attempt by the crew to save the most seriously wounded--a war crime.”

“I am outraged at the efforts of the apologists for Israel in this country to claim that this attack was a case of ``mistaken identity.'' In particular, the recent publication of Jay Cristol's book, The Liberty Incident, twists the facts and misrepresents the views of those of us who investigated the attack. It is Cristol's insidious attempt to whitewash the facts that has pushed me to speak out.”

“I know from personal conversations I had with Admiral Kidd that President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordered him to conclude that the attack was a case of ``mistaken identity'' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Contrary to the misinformation presented by Cristol and others, it is important for the American people to know that it is clear that Israel is responsible for deliberately attacking an American ship and murdering American sailors, whose bereaved shipmates have lived with this egregious conclusion for many years.”

Granger, Israel is our 'staunch ally' only when it serves their interests and at the sacrifice of everyone else. Now do you understand the treacherous evil perpetrated by the Zionists?

begintowin

I don't agree with reason Johnson hid the USS Liberty tragedy was to protect the AIPAC. I believe it was because the USS Liberty had no business being where it was stationed IOW illegal. Just like 911. I don't believe the truth about 911 would be to protect the AIPAC. I believe it was because the WTC could not legaly be demolished, but it had to be because it was a white elephant and envornmentally illegal (how much abestos was in the WTC?

What is Israel's interest?

Granger, You are Blind to the Truth

I have cited numerous factual examples reported by U.S. Naval personnel involved in the investigative details of the U.S.S. Liberty attack including and affidavit entered in the U.S. Congressional Record. You have ignore these facts completely and continue to prostrate yourself to the Zionist effigy with circuitous comments to dance the Israeli ballet of deception and obfuscation.

You have not provided one shred of historical reference, not one fact to support your belief that Israel is innocent of deliberately committing war crimes against U.S. naval and Marine Corps personnel on that faithful day June 8, 1967.

You must be the scion of Jay Cristol because you twist the events around as he did in his factually duplicitous screed titled, "Liberty Incident" that falsely claimed the attack was a mistake and not intentional which is a blatant lie.

You wrote you believe President Johnson hid the tragedy because the Liberty was illegally stationed in Israeli waters (IOW?). What evidence do you have that substantiates your belief the Liberty was not in international waters when it was attacked?

What is the basis for your belief, Granger?

What you offer is not answering my question

Actually, I have provided information on other posts.

Let's see if we are on the same page.

I believe the USA has an obligation to tell the American people the truth.

I believe the USA has hid the truth.

Do you agree?

Let's start here with these two simple questions.

12 nautical miles is the border for international water. USS Liberty was 12 miles out.

USS Liberty was a spy ship, the American people had no idea the USS Liberty was there.

What business did the USS Liberty being there? We had a war going on.. so why is the USS Liberty on the other side of the world, entangling itself in the situation of the Mid East, when England still had control of Palestine?

Israel was KNOWN from the war in 48 to be PRO active (now called pre-emptive in defence, especially since it was England (America) who blocked Jews from Israel, Russia, France and Germany arming Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine.. and despite all odds, Israel won huge. So the USA KNEW Israel was not a "wait and see" country when it came to defense.

What business did the USS Liberty have being anywhere near Israel, especially when there was a war in Nam where Americans were losing?

Granger, You're Fabrication of the Facts is Astounding

Again, you have provided no historical information to substantiate your claim the U.S.S. Liberty was in Israeli territorial waters during the attack on June 8, 1967?

Show us Granger, where are your facts?

12 nautical miles

that's the border of international water. That is a fact.. what business dod the USS Liberty have being there?

NONE. That is a fact.

The USA HID the truth from the American people. That is a fact.

Answer my questions in the previous post. You can't.
