US Navy’s Most Decorated Ship Attacked!

34 Killed, 174 Wounded

Many people I talk to about this incident don’t have any clue it occurred, much less that our beloved ally, Israel, was the culprit. The few that are aware always regurgitate the same old story… they did it “by accident”.

This is far from the truth of the matter.

I have been long aware of the accusations and I know that our government is capable of such a thing… and that Zionist Israel controls the Americans involved (still true today)… but until I began researching the issue and getting information from the survivors, I didn’t realize how blatant it was. I believe that if Americans understood what our American-provided, benefits-dependent (money, arms, and obedience) “ally” has done, ON PURPOSE, then we wouldn’t give half a flying fart what Iran did with that criminal and pathological bunch.

I believe that by and large the info in the video above is correct, but any potential issues would surely be addressed there (I noticed that the movie claims that 172 men were wounded). From their front page you get the real picture (please go visit and examine the MANY links and personal related stories of survivors and investigators):

USS LIBERTY
A National Disgrace!
“Attack one American and you attack all Americans” was once proclaimed by President Clinton. More recently, an Assistant Secretary for State proclaimed that the U. S. government always protects its citizens. President Johnson, during the Tonkin Gulf fiasco, stated, “To any armed attack upon our forces, we shall reply.” You can hear him say it: http://gidusko.webs.com/johnson_lie.mp3

These are damned lies and meaningless words. These words were not true in 1967 (when Israel deliberately attacked the USS LIBERTY, killing 34 and wounding 174) and unfortunately, and in spite of these beautiful words, they are not even true today. Moreover, there is no such thing as justice.

On that June day in 1967, the weather was beautiful… Clear and sunny, visibility unlimited… the LIBERTY, an elaborate state-of-the art intelligence gathering platform, was in international waters off the Gaza strip and was flying the Stars and Stripes. Israeli reconnaissance planes flew overhead for hours. Pilots and ship’s crew waved to each other. Then, inexplicably, unmarked Israeli aircraft began attacking the ship.

The defenseless LIBERTY radioed for help. Two aircraft carriers in the Med responded by launching fighter aircraft. Unbelievably, they were recalled by the White House. RADM Geis, then commanding the carriers in the Sixth Fleet, called Washington personally to confirm the order. SecDef McNamara came on the line, then President Johnson. Johnson indicated to Geis that the aircraft were to be returned, that he would not have his allies embarrassed, and that he didn’t care who was killed or what was done to the ship. His previous comment that “we would reply” went by the wayside. Geis, like any good sailor, recalled the aircraft.

With no help forthcoming, the LIBERTY fell an easy victim to Israel’s motor torpedo boat attack. FIVE torpedoes were lobbed at the Liberty, one hit amidships and instantly killed 25 sailors. A total of 34 died in the attack, 174 were injured.

The torpedo boats came within 50 feet of the ship, couldn’t see the American flag on the mast, couldn’t see the words “USS LIBERTY” on the stern, couldn’t see “GTR-5″ in 6 1/2 foot letters on the bow. The boats shot at white-Dixie-cup-hatted American sailors on the deck of the Liberty as the sailors tried to help one another. As life rafts were put in the water by Liberty sailors in preparation for abandoning the ship, the boats shot them up. One boat pulled a raft out of the water and took it on board. Didn’t see the words “U. S. NAVY” stenciled on it. The boats left the scene, apparently when they got erroneous word that the carriers had sent fighters to help the Liberty.

President Johnson went on television and announced to the American people that TEN sailors were killed in the “six minute accidental” attack. Sailors were ordered not to discuss the incident with ANYONE under threat of court-martial. We waited for the investigation… and for the explanations and the answers. Why did Israel attack the ship? Why did the U. S. Government turn its back on the crew members? The answers never came.

There has NEVER been a congressional investigation. There HAS been a NAVY- controlled white-washed investigation of the crew’s actions during the attack, but Israel’s participation was NOT covered. Even in this, evidence was changed, and officers and crew who knew the answers were not asked the right questions and were told to shut up when they offered information.

Other than the Navy’s kangaroo-court inquiry mentioned above, there has NEVER been a single Liberty sailor questioned by congress or anybody else in a formal investigation.
