Erasing the Liberty:

Leave a comment

 

That subject line could be from today, but it was 51 years ago—June 8, 1967—when Israel did attack an unarmed and unarmored U.S. Navy ship in international waters, the USS Liberty (AGTR-5), killing 34 and wounding 174.

The only major difference is that the rescue aircraft—scrambled from two U.S. aircraft carriers around 15 minutes flying-time away from the Liberty—were recalled twice, first by the U.S. Secretary of Defense, and then by U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The Liberty was forced to languish for nearly 18 hours before the U.S. Sixth Fleet was allowed to assist the stricken vessel and its crew.

You know little or nothing about this because they don’t want you to know, they being not just Israel, but the U.S. government, who instituted and still maintains this cover-up.

Incredibly, the Liberty and her crew are the most decorated in U.S. Navy history for a single engagement, a fact every American schoolchild should know, but they’re not allowed to know, as “they” have erased this history from our books and movies, and defaced the men who were forced to endure the massacre.

The attack was—says Liberty survivor Phil Tourney—not just an attack against his ship and the U.S. Navy, but an attack against every American—past, present and future.

It was an act of war. And Israel was allowed to walk away, scot-free, the consequences of which the world is still suffering from today.
