42 years ago, June 8th, the USS Liberty was attacked by Israeli jet fighters mercilessly and 34 crew members were killed with 174 crew wounded. This murderous and unprovoked attack by Israel was covered up immediately by the President and the top Navy Brass. Wounded crew members were warned that they would be court martialed for even just speaking to their wives of the incident.
I don’t want to let this incident get swept under the covers any more than it already has and was very glad to see an article at Consortium News about one of the surviving crew members being honored by Congressman Devin Nunes. The article offers a nice history of the incident in brief. It can be found here:
This day will live on as evidence of the US’s deference to Israel, even when the lives of our own servicemen are murdered by the Zionists.
