It is always good to start a new year with some good news….and this report to me is excellent news that is about 50 years to late…..but better late than never, eh?
I have been writing about the USS Liberty incident since 2009…it was a brutal attack by Israel on a US signet ship during the 6 day war and the attack was swept under the carpet for 51years…..my post are usually on the anniversary of the deplorable attack.
My post from last year that covers many of the articles written about the attack…..
I have been calling for a more open investigation into this act of terrorism by Israel against an unarmed ship…and I am never alone in this desire…..finally someone has also picked up the mantle for an investigation…..
Due to the persistence of surviving crew members and the continual emergence of new revelations, the national veteran’s group American Legion has passed Resolution 40 calling for Congress to “publicly, impartially, and thoroughly” investigate the attack by Israel on an American ship in 1967, in which 34 American sailors were killed and hundreds of others were wounded. The resolution comes despite a veil of government secrecy which keeps key documents on the attack classified more than 50 years later. [NSA USS Liberty documents]
The attack, which surviving crew members to a man say was deliberate, as well as a stellar list of high-ranking officials, has never been officially investigated outside of a Navy Court of Inquiry and an NSA probe. Surviving crew members were not allowed to testify to key points which did not fit the official conclusion that it was an accident.
Now is the time for Israel to face charges for this brutal attack….their disregard for the lives of an ally…..
We will see what kind of courage this new batch of Reps has or if they are the spineless bunch I believe them to be.
Israel should be held accountable for the deaths of 34 US sailors….many of us have been calling for this action for decades….finally someone is listening.
Time for the truth to come to light and sweep all the Israeli bullshit under the rug.
