USS Liberty–Update 2019

FINALLY!

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.

  1. I recall this incident. I suppose being 50 years later at least history will be served accurately and maybe what survivors are still living might get some “guilt” money from Israel. Sadly the passage of time doesn’t give this a sense of priority.

    Speaking of cover-ups/conspiracies this popped into my head. There’s been this not-so-subtle “uncomfortableness” with Trump regarding the exposing as a Moscow spy and subsequent indictment of the Russian chick messing with the NRA, Maria Butina, for failing to register as a foreign agent. Now the Russkies have nabbed this American who frequently visits Russia, Paul Whelan, and is accusing him as a spy for America. Obviously there is speculation all over that Putin doing a tit-for-tat thing, likely for some future spy exchange.
    But consider this…… Trump suggests to Putin that given he (Trump) would have a tough legal, political, and media time just freeing Butina on some decree.. that Putin should just “arrest” some American on whatever “trumped” up charges.. then everyone saves face with a prisoner exchange at some future date… and Trump and Putin look like heroes in their respective countries.

  2. Congress should pass a resolution condemning Israel and also stop support until they pay for the damage and pay compensation the the survivors or their families.
    Deliberate act should be punished.
