The Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty
For most Americans, hearing that their government would allow American citizens to be murdered is unthinkable. They simply cannot accept that the U.S. Government could have had any role in the attacks on 9/11.
Would the US allow its citizens to be attacked and killed by a foreign power and then cover up the facts?
It would – and it has.
On June 8th, 1967, the Israeli military attacked and attempted to sink the USS Liberty as she sailed under a US flag in international waters. Thirty-four US servicemen were killed and 171 injured by a well-coordinated, multi-wave assault which included the use of napalm.
The Israeli military called the attack a “tragic mistake” and then-President Lyndon Johnson agreed it was nothing more. Sailors who were aboard the ship were warned not to disclose the facts of what happened that day under penalty of court martial – or worse.
Watch the following video and hear what really happened from the survivors of the USS Liberty.
