Tomorrow will mark a sad day 45 yrs ago
when Israel attacked a US warship in the ME
for no apparent reasons

The result of the attack was:
- Liberty severely damaged,
- 34 crewmen killed,
- 171 crewmen wounded

Pretty sure the boat had a big US flag on IT
and before you attack someone you need to make sure
you have visual confirmation that it is the enemy and not an allied friend




Israeli aircraft and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty in international waters off Egypt’s Gaza Strip. Israeli aircraft fired napalm and rockets at the intelligence ship that was well marked as a U.S. vessel. The Liberty called for assistance but radio transmissions were blocked by Israel. The lightly armed vessel was eventually able to make contact with the U.S. carrier, Saratoga, whose 12 fighter jets and four tanker planes were launched to defend the Liberty.

Shortly after the aircraft were deployed, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordered the planes to return to the carrier.
The Israeli air raid left nine of the 294 crew members dead and 60 wounded. Israeli torpedo boats also attacked the Liberty. The ship successfully dodged four of the torpedoes but was hit at the waterline by one. With severe damage to its hull, the Liberty launched its life boats, but these were also met with attack, a violation of international law. The Liberty did not sink and Israel retreated. The damaged USS Liberty managed to sail to a safe port. A total of 34 Americans were killed and 171 were wounded in the two hour attack.

Israel later apologized for the attack and paid $6.9 million as compensation to the families of the dead and wounded. In 1980, Israel and the U.S. came to an additional settlement of $6 million plus 13 years of interest for damages to the vessel. Israel claims they had mistaken the Liberty for an Egyptian military vessel. U.S.and Israeli reports also concluded the attack was a mistake due to confusion of the identity of the ship. However, Liberty survivors and some U.S. officials from the time say they believe the attack was intentional; done in order to conceal Israel’s planned seizure of Syria’s Golan Heights, which occurred the next day. Officials say that the Liberty, an intelligence ship, would have picked up in the communications in planning the controversial seizure of Golan Heights.

The story is even on Wiki but nothing about the Golan Heights Link

What really happened on that day .. did the USS Liberty intercepted a radio signal
that would embarrasse Israel .. and since they have an ego the size of the sun
they though they would get away with it .. tried to sink it and kill everybody on board ..
but they couldnt and had to retreat like cowards after the sneak attack

Someone from inside .. a traitor inside the US government
told the 12 jet and 4 tanker not to assist the USS Liberty and to return to the carrier

Im pretty sure that same persone told Israel that he will cover it up no problemo
and not let the news show to the world .. how Israel really dont care about others except themself
when it come to divide and conquer

Will Israel pay their respect tomorrow and make a prayer to the ones killed, wounded and their familly ?
Will Obama say something about it ?
Will CNN say something about it ?

Dont think so

You can be sure of one thing .. no bad words for Israel
and no good words from them on this sad event

Again why is Israel the greatest ally ever of the US
it should be Canada ... like Ron Paul said
what Israel did positive for the US in 60 yrs ?

They only gave a few millions to the famillies like money would heal the wounds
at the end .. in reality it was the US paying the US famillies affected by the USS Liberty "accident"
the billions we give to Israel each yrs surely paid the few millions

Its Time Israel Claim Their Independance

Let's Cut to the Chase - Israel Must Be Stopped

If they can attack an ally friend like that they certainly are coldblooded enought to make 9/11 happens

Remember the 5 dancing Israelis .. partying at the same time 3000 innocent americans died ?

If they are not the enemies .. they certainly are NOT FRIEND

Whats are they ?? except causing trouble to the whole world all the time

This event has been intentionally downplayed by TPTB for decades because it stinks of American garbage policy regarding Israel.

If it were any other nation, the USA would have bombed the sh%#$&! out of them. Imagine if the attack were carried out by, say, Iran.


This event is a gateway, a portal into how international policy really works in the USA. The persistent and unequivocal support of Israel is unfounded, unprecedented, and defies logic without some underlying conspiratorial theory.

They were able to hijack this country with money. We give them billions and they turn around and buy our politicians with it they also use intimidation. When you have a terrorist organaztion like the JDL operating inside the US but nothing is done about them.

Jewish Defense League


In 2004 congressional testimony, John S. Pistole, Executive Assistant Director for Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence for the Federal Bureau of Investigation described the JDL as "a known violent extremist Jewish Organization."[30] FBI statistics show that, from 1980 through 1985, there were 18 terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed by Jews; 15 of those by members of the JDL.[13] According to the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, In a 1986 study of domestic terrorism, the Department of Energy concluded: "For more than a decade, the Jewish Defense League (JDL) has been one of the most active terrorist groups in the United States.... Since 1968, JDL operations have killed 7 persons and wounded at least 22. Thirty-nine percent of the targets were connected with the Soviet Union; 9 percent were Palestinian; 8 percent were Lebanese; 6 percent, Egyptian; 4 percent, French, Iranian, and Iraqi; 1 percent, Polish and German; and 23 percent were not connected with any states. Sixty-two percent of all JDL actions are directed against property; 30 percent against businesses; 4 percent against academics and academic institutions; and 2 percent against religious targets." (Department of Energy, Terrorism in the United States and the Potential Threat to Nuclear Facilities, R-3351-DOE, January 1986, pp. 11-16


No college professor is allowed to criticize Israel on anything if they do then they are harassed and threatened with their jobs and their life if they don't stop.

The JDL should be treated like any other terrorist org and needs to be put down.

That is a lie that the Zionist used to justify their cowardly attack. The real reason why they attacked is because they were afraid that the ship was going to report what Israel was doing in Golan heights. And it was also an attempt to get America to go to war against Egypt.

Well, I guess everyone else has poited out the lie.
But I will ask a question, even if this lie were true, why did we allow the terrorist state of israel to kill our boys?
Like someone else pointed out, we have bombed other countries into the stone age for MUCH less.

First I am a US Navy veteran and what I find most appalling about this incident is that our government placed a spy ship in a war zone to listen in to all communications of both sides. Then our government went ahead and supplied information to the Arabs which they obtained while doing survalence. The Israeli government caught wind and attacked our ship.

The sick part is we could have defended the Liberty but Washington let my fellow sailors die to hide the fact we were playing both sides . The truth of that day, peace.

Great thread here, this is probably my biggest hot button here.
I'm sure you probably have seen my Remember the U.S.S LIBERTY.
link.
This is an excellent site with all sorts of info on that day complete with interviews.
I add this on EVERY thread where the terrorist state of israel is mentioned.
Some will attempt to sidetrack other false flag operations and deceptions by the terrorist state of israel, so I hold my beacon high and watch the idf cockroaches scatter.
This is the one false flag that was OBVIOUSLY deliberate and cannot be disproven.
Just for this one action I wish the Iran would do what they are wrongfully acused of.
On that day, I will be the one doing the dancing in the streets.
Remember the U.S.S LIBERTY.

That certainly would explain a lot .. thank you for your reply

So you think this particular US spy ship was a rogue ship working for both side
and wanted to prevent a big war by leaking the info of an attack on the GH
to a elected democratic country (Syria) so they can prepare their Defences and resist the intruder ?

Never realise until now how much that ship and her crew were all real Heroes doing the right thing
and Israel wasnt please by that and decided to exterminate the ship .. tried but couldnt
USS Liberty probably fought well to fight the agressor and Israel probably suffered casulaties

This show once again how terrorist and low that regime is and still are the same in 2012
after stealing the land from the Palestinian in 1967 to have Israel for themself with Hitlers help
they continu each day to make terror in the world with the help of the US
many traitor are inside the government .. all of them should go in prison for life

The idea of the ship going "ROGUE" is as much a lie as there ever could be.
If that was the case the US would have tried the captain and hung him out to dry saving face for all of the perpetrators of this crime, instead they gave him a CMH......silently.
There is NO excuse for what was done to the USS Liberty.
The terrorist state of israel just did not want the world to see them continuing hitlers work is all.
Remember the U.S.S LIBERTY.

If that was the case then our aircraft would have intercepted the Isreali planes but ours were grounded by order of the Sec. of Defense/chair of joints chief of staff...

The liberty was a pure false flag attack but the russians witnessed it and probably had photo evidence of it. when the US wants to invade we just attack ourselves and blame who ever we want to attack....

Secreterary of Defense ...
all traitor to the bones

Hilary is the same kind of Secretary of Defense then Robert McNamara was at that time
when her ordered the return of the planes that were launched to secure USS Liberty and
defend it at all cost the live of the crew

Those Sec of Def are really all a bunch of war criminals traitor to the US and the world peace

Thanks for the reminder, OP. Israel is a terrorist state that is using the United States to our own detriment. Israel, as the USS Liberty episode illustrates, will slaughter it's allies indiscriminately if those allies try to do the right thing, and deviate from whatever action Israel dictates.

I'm sick of Israel, sick of their wars, apartheid and atrocities, sick of Zionism, and fed the hell up with AIPAC and the ridiculous power they wield in the halls of Washington D.C.

The ship wasn't in a war zone it was in international waters. And we provided no information to the Arabs that has been pointed out already. But if it were true that we gave info to the Arabs then why wasn't Israel able to provide any proof of this?

Actually the US Goverment was acting way more despicable than the Israeli government . The Israelis were attacked by six Arab states and the US spies on thier ally the israelis sending info to the Arabs . We get caught and leae our sailors to die so the truth can't be told . It was a shameful cowardly act by Johnson who hated the Jews and left our sailors to die . The Israelis did what they had to to survive and probably got the OK to kill all aboard from our government once the shooting started.

Many USS Liberty veteran who survived the attack
would beg to differ on that
