USNavy Historian Uses IDF History Dept. Report As Basis For USNavy History of USS Liberty Attack

“It involves the MISTAKEN attack by four Israeli jet fighters and three motor torpedo boats (MTB) on the USS Liberty (AGTR-5). . . .” – Attack on USS Liberty, 8 June 1967” by RADM Samuel Cox, Director, Naval History and Heritage Command, Published on May 7, 2019. (Emphasis Added)

According to his biography at the NHHC website:

Rear Adm. Samuel J. Cox, U.S. Navy (Retired) serves as the director of the Naval History and Heritage Command and Curator of the Navy. He is responsible for the Navy’s museums, art and artifact collections, the research library, 150 million pages of archives, and for collecting and interpreting U.S. Naval history throughout the world.

In June, 1982, the Israeli Defence Forces, History Department Research and Instruction Branch. published a report, “The Attack on the ‘Liberty’ Incident 8 June 1967.”

According to the report, it was prepared because:

with the publication of the book, Assault on the Liberty, the American Congress appointed a committee, headed by Adlai Stevenson, for the purpose of investigating the affair and publishing the results of the investigation.

Comparing the Cox article with the IDF report you will notice a definite similarity between the two.

There are many who claim that the attack on the USS Liberty has been investigated many times by the United States government — specifically Congress.

If that is the case, the question is why didn’t RADM Cox find the report of that investigation among the 150,000,000 pages in the archives available to him?

If he couldn’t find it among the 150 million pages in the archives available to him, why didn’t he note in his article that the US Navy’s history of the attack on the USS Liberty is based on a report prepared not by the US government but by the Israeli Defense Forces.
