Al Jazeera investigates the shocking truth behind a deadly Israeli attack on a US naval vessel.


In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

Later Israel apologised for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.




Filmmaker's view
By Richard Belfield

I was first told about the attack on the USS Liberty in 1980 over dinner with a former analyst from the National Security Agency (NSA) in Washington DC.

Back in 1980, I promised my friend that if I ever got the chance I would make a film about it. Over the years, I pitched the idea to numerous broadcasters and always got the same response: eyes rolled upwards, usually followed by the statement, "Are you completely mad?"



The Day Israel Attacked America


Just wanted to share this new video about the USS Liberty being attacked in international waters by Israeli forces on June 8, 1967, killing 34 Americans and wounding 174.

Quite an eye opener about the fact it wasn't just an accident but a sick strategic operation by supposed allies.

Worth a watch.

Enjoy

That's one side of it. The other is that the Liberty was spying on Israel and sending the Arab coalition forces information on where and what troops Israel had deployed. Israel was nearly destroyed and we would have contributed to their demise. Our loyalty was to the kings of oil, not Palestinian soil.

Thats a lovely fairy tale... whats next the bombing of the King David Hotel was in self defence?

The seven day war was the UN's fault because they forgot to say all the land was israel's & they shouldnt have to share because god said so?

There is no proof of any of that even being true. The fact is Israel was worried that America would report the war crimes they were committing. Israel tried to make it look like the Egyptians attacked the ship to get America to fight Egypt for them.

Seeing how the terrorist after 51 years of denial got awards from Israel for their actions you can probably find some people stupid enough to believe it was self defense.

Do you have evidence to back this up?

History has recorded this event. Though Buster is wrong to an extent. It happened 47 years ago, not 51. But I think that something is fishy in this story nonetheless. (And no, I'm not a Israeli basher)

There are always reason why one country attacks another. It could be nothing but "The Fog of War" considering the first attack. But the attack was sustained.

My question consists of only one word.

Why?

There is a lot that I believe both Governments aren't telling us.

The Lavon affair happened in 1954 the terrorist received their awards in 2005 that is 51 years. A little research never hurts.

That's just hate talking. The ME would still be in turmoil whether Israel existed or not. That region has been at war ever since written history and even more so since Mo invented the "Religion of Peace."

Wishful, yet futile thinking on your part.

Israel is constantly spying on the US as I type. What should we do? AIPAC is also a seriously destructive fixture in Our Country, what should we do, a USS Liberty on them?

If one is unfamiliar with Israels attack on the USS Liberty this site has ALL the information anyone may desire.

www.ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/ussliberty.html < Firefox or perhaps my ignorance doesn't appear to allow me to utilize hyperlinks.You may need to cut
and paste the link. It is however a very worthwhile read

The day israel attacked America?

Termites don't stop attacking until their host is consumed, or destroyed.

Nice that we have a choice.

It was something I read in a book entitled the War against the Jews. I never said I believed it, I was just pointing out another version of events. Usually the truth is somewhere in between. In the world of intelligence double and triple agents are all too common, just ask Kim Philby.

I really doubt it would have been. But the reality of the situation is as it is.

6 day war was prepared and planned by Israel military. So, the reason to attack US was purely to create a false flag for US to engage Egypt forces.
