|THE USS LIBERTY|
ATTACKED BY ISRAEL JUNE 8, 1967
The subject of the USS LIBERTY has been so censored and so ignored by the media that few people have heard of of the event.
On June 8, 1967 the U.S.S. Liberty was attacked by elements of the Navy and Airforce of Israel. The ship was in international waters and contained no armaments , it was an intelligence gathering ship.
The Liberty was under surveillance for 9 hours by Israeli aircraft and radar, they knew the Liberty was a United States ship. In fact, there is no way that they could not know it was a U.S. vessel.
With full knowledge that the Liberty was an American ship, Israel attacked the Liberty killing 34 U.S. sailors and injuring 174.
More information was found in the American Free Press newspaper which reports:
“Israeli fighter jets fired rockets, cannons and dropped napalm for almost 30 minutes, leaving almost 1,000 holes in the former WWII cargo vessel and slaughtering nine Americans.
The air attack was quickly followed by a seaborne assault by three motor torpedo boats (MTBs), which launched five torpedoes and fired armor-piercing rounds at close range to breach the Liberty’s skin to hit the boiler, which would be catastrophic for the ship. One torpedo hit the spaces that housed the sailors, Marines and civilians working for the NSA, and 25 were instantly killed. The MTBs also, in violation of the Geneva Convention, machine-gunned all the life rafts and fired on sailors attempting to assist the wounded and put out fires.
Battle carrier groups conducting maneuvers off the coast of Crete launched aircraft to defend the Liberty, but the planes were twice recalled by Secretary of Defense McNamara and President Johnson, who commented that he would rather see the Liberty sunk than embarrass his ally Israel. "
To learn why the Israelis wanted Johnson in the office of the President of the United States, you'll have to read my forthcoming book 'A Beginner's Guide to False Flags'.
