Attack on the USS Liberty
On the eighth of June, 2017, it was 50 years to the day that the state of Israel --in a blatant act of war--attempted to sink the American intelligence-gathering ship, the USS Liberty.
The Liberty was floating in the eastern Mediterranean Sea in international waters, 13 miles off the Sinai Peninsula, near Gaza.
Equipped with more than 40 antennas capable of receiving every kind of radio transmission, the ship was considered “an electromagnetic audio-surveillance vacuum-cleaner.”
It was the third day of the Six-Day War, and the Liberty’s mission was to monitor Egyptian and other Arab state radio transmissions in an effort to aide its “ally,” Israel, in the conflict.
Survivors of the assault, as well as high-ranking military investigators, have, from the beginning and for five decades, believed that the Israeli attack on the Liberty was not a case of misidentifying the Liberty as an Egyptian horse-cavalry transport ship, as Tel Aviv has always asserted. Rather, it was a carefully planned ploy to kill every crew member on board the Liberty, sink the ship, and blame the outrage on the Egyptians, thus embroiling the United States in a hot war against Israel’s enemies. (Sound familiar?).
The unpredictable, completely unprovoked, and utterly savage assault began at 1:56 p.m when Israeli fighter pilots in two French-manufactured Mirage III and two Super Mystere warplanes flew out of the clouds, bombarding the Liberty and her unsuspecting crew with heat-seeking rockets and 30mm cannon fire. They then dropped napalm onto the vessel’s deck, frying hapless servicemen alive while relentlessly strafing survivors.
