Help Wanted: USS Liberty FOIA Attorney
The National Security Agency has a habit of claiming they have posted all USS Liberty related documents in their files on their webpage, waiting a few years and posting more USS Liberty related documents on their website and claim they have posted all USS Liberty related information in their files on their website, waiting a few years and posting more USS Liberty related documents on their website and claim they have posted all USS Liberty related information in their files on their website, etc., ad nauseam.
Now there’s a file they didn’t intend on posting. But they did.

So says a document the National Security Agency has posted on its website.
They didn’t want to – but we insisted.
“On 08 June 2007, the National Security Agency (NSA) finalized the review of all material relative to the 08 June 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. This additional release adds to the collection of documents and audio recordings and transcripts previously posted to the site on 02 July 2003.” From the NSA Website.
Their June 8, 2007, release of USS Liberty documents didn’t include the “Station Has Voice Tapes” message.
That document had been in our possession for many years prior to the 40th anniversary of the attack release of USS Liberty documents.
I informed the NSA that their release didn’t include the “Station Has Voice Tapes” message and I included a copy of that message in my email.
They posted it on their website.
That was followed immediately by an FOIA request for the voice tapes referenced in the message or, if the voice tapes had been destroyed, a copy of the documentation authorizing the destruction of the voice tapes.
Their response was the “no relevant documents” reply we are so used to receiving. Subsequent FOIA requests received the “no relevant documents” reply until one day I was told that any further FOIA requests from me would be discarded out of hand.
We don’t know what is on those tapes but we want to. To our knowledge, nobody on the Revisionist side of the equation has pursued a release of the tapes in the legal arena.
We’re looking for an attorney who is interested in helping ensure the release of the NSA tapes.
It is not necessary that you coordinate your efforts with us. Simply that you make the effort and share the tapes with us and the rest of the American people. If you do want to share your efforts with us, you can contact us at email@example.com.

THIS POST HAS BEEN READ 2101 TIMES SO FAR. THANK YOU!
He was aboard the USS Liberty when the ship was attacked by the Israeli Defense Forces in 1967 and has been in the forefront of the effort to ensure the US government finally investigates the attack.He also participated in Freedom Flotilla I in 2010 whose goal was to break the blockade of Gaza only to be brutally attacked by the IDF who killed 9 human rights activists on the MV Mavi Marmara.
The death of one American citizen on the Mavi Marmara elicited nary a peep of outrage or condemnation from the State Department.This follows the outrageous precedent the State Department initiated when 34 Americans were killed on the USS Liberty which was followed by silence from the State Department.Meadors is an eye-witness to and a victim of this policy.
Meadors has also participated in Freedom Flotillas II, III and IV in the effort to break the immoral blockade of Gaza.
His background gives him a unique perspective as an American citizen when it comes to issues involving the Middle East.
He will be sharing that perspective in his articles for The Arab Daily News.
He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
