The Attack on the USS Liberty, 55 Years Later

“Fifty-five years ago today Israeli fighter jets and gun boats attacked the unarmed USS Liberty ship off the Egyptian coast and hoped to pin the assault on Egypt. Thirty-four American sailors were killed and 171 were wounded, many with lifelong burns and traumas that lingered for years. In a shameful response, the US Government and the Pentagon colluded in perhaps the most disgraceful coverup involving the brutal murder of American servicemen. And to this day Israel is rewarded with 4 billion dollars of hard-earned US taxpayer dollars.” (06/08/22)
