Fifty-two years ago today the USA Government failed to support the crew of USS Liberty; but attempted to cover up Israel’s attack on America’s premier spy-ship as it navigated in international waters during what became known as The Six Day War.
By Eileen Fleming
On 8 June 1967, Israel attacked the USS Liberty killing thirty-four and wounding over 170 Americans.
The USS Liberty was pummeled with over 3,000 machine gun hits, a 40-foot hole blew open her starboard side from a torpedo explosion, most of her vital equipment was destroyed, a quarter of the ship flooded, and her captain severely wounded.
A few hours after the attack on the USS Liberty, the Israeli government apologized that they had “erroneously attacked” the Liberty but the USA cover-up had already begun.
To commemorate the 50th reunion of the USS Liberty Veterans, this American produced We Americans and the USS Liberty
The USA survivors of The Six Day War have endured post-traumatic stress exacerbated by the ongoing USA government cover-up despite many petitions and persistent pleas from the USS Liberty Veterans Association and grass roots efforts to end the USA Government coverup.
Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. coined the mantra: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
