Suez Crisis II

I don't see the connection to Rockefeller. OK, there was a museum and he has served as an education secretary under Ike but Rockefeller was the motive and the force behind the USS Liberty Incident? I don't know. I have trouble lining up the points on it.

My theory:

The USN was observing or pumping disinformation or false orders to Egyptian forces. Nasser had seized the Suez Canal in 58' and here he was again in 67' stirring up trouble on the Suez. Plus he had become much cozier with the Soviets by that point. They wanted Nasser out.

When the IDF attacked the Liberty it was an embarassment for both McNamara (Johnson) & Israel. They buried it. This stinks of McNamara.
