Dead in the Water (Israel's attack on the USS Liberty in 1967)
Do you think that there is any country in the world which could launch an unprovoked attack on an American naval frigate - killing 34 of its crew and wounding 174 - without being retaliated against? Worse still, were such an event to take place, could you imagine the government of a mighty nation siding with the attackers - ordering the official findings to be altered - to cover up the deadly attack? Yet the evidence is overwhelming that this is precisely what took place when Israeli fighter jets and torpedo boats attacked and very nearly sank the USS Liberty in international waters on June 8 1967. Since that time, the cover-up of this shameful affair has persisted, with top military officers ordered to alter official reports, a continuing media blackout, and threats to the lives of outspoken survivors!
There are several theories as to what led to the deadly attack on the Navy's most advanced spy ship! But while some believe that it was to create a false-flag event to blame on Egypt, causing America to enter the war, the most likely reason had to do with expanding the territorial scope of the conflict. While the LBJ administration had given Israel the green light to attack Egypt, it stressed that on no account was the scope of the war to be widened to include nearby Syria or Jordan. Israel - however, had planned to go against Washington's wishes and grab the Golan Heights inside the Syrian border. This meant they had to destroy the spy ship sent by America - with no survivors left to tell the story. That led to their use of napalm and the machine-gunning of survivors abandoning ship for lifeboats!
They very nearly succeeded, with the treasonous complicity of a commander-in-chief - who initially directed that no help be provided to the Liberty, ordering that dispatched planes must return to base! But after about 30 minutes of being shamed into action by top military brass LBJ relented, allowing for a second fighter squadron to be dispatched - leading to unmarked Israeli jet fighters, helicopters and torpedo boats leaving the scene hastily - in order to avoid a fight they knew they could not win!
But this is by no means an isolated incident, as records show a long history of treachery by this ally! From the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946, with Israeli soldiers dressed up as Arabs killing 91, to the Lavon affair in 1954 where Israeli agents set off bombs in several buildings, including American diplomatic facilities, to pin the blame on Egypt - right up to the largest terrorist attack on US soil, 9/11, where Mossad agents played a pivotal part in the murder of 3,000 civilians!
Today this ruthless Mid-Eastern country wields more power than any other in the halls of Congress! Indeed, history repeats as the most powerful country on Earth ignores the plight of its less fortunate while in the middle of a lengthy decline - preferring to allocate $billions in aid to a treacherous ally!
But even the longest rope has an end - and it remains to be seen how much further this one will last! With corporate (mainly Jewish-controlled) media rapidly losing credibility to alternative news sites, more and more people awaken daily to the reality of a one-sided alliance - justice may soon prevail!
The Man With The Israeli Accent–USS LIBERTY Survivor’s Life Threatened by Mossad on American Soil While Uncle Sam Yawns
USS Liberty Cover Up Full Movie
The lesson of the cold-blooded attack on the USS Liberty was that there is nothing the Zionist state might not do, to its friends as well as its enemies, in order to get its own way.
by Alan Hart
On Thursday 8 June 1967, Israeli air and naval forces attacked America’s most advanced spy ship, the U.S.S. Liberty, killing 34 of its crew and wounding 174.
Forty five years on, thanks to the complicity of the mainstream media, the cover up ordered by President Johnson is still in place.
Two years ago, on New York’s Long Island, I had the pleasure and privilege of being the keynote speaker at the annual dinner of the Liberty Survivors Association. I told them I was aware that if the attack had gone completely according to the plan of the man who ordered it, Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan, none of them would have survived.
I also told them that although I am an Englishman who had not served in any of his country’s armed services (because conscription was abolished by the time I was old enough to have served), we did have something in common – OUTRAGE that could not be expressed adequately in polite words at the continued suppression in America of the truth about Israel’s attack on the Liberty.
My American publisher expressed to me the view that it is “the most revealing, the most riveting and the most important chapter in the whole book.” My own view is that it assists real understanding of what the Zionist state of Israel is – a monster beyond control.
Here is the chapter, complete with source notes.
Israel insisted (as it still does) that its attack on the Liberty was an unfortunate “accident”, a case of “mistaken identity”.
The attack ought to have been a sensational, headline-grabbing news story, but beyond the fact that an accident had happened and that Israel had apologised, it did not get reported by America’s news organisations. It was too hot an issue for them to handle and pursue. If it had been an Arab attack on an American vessel it would have been an entirely different matter, of course. In that event there would have been saturation coverage with demands for retaliation, with Zionist and other pro-Israeli columnists and commentators setting the pace and tone.
About the attack and its aftermath – the Johnson administration’s cover-up led by the President himself – retired American Admiral Thomas L. Moorer, who was appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) a month after the incident, was subsequently to say to former U.S. Congressman Paul Findley, “If it was written as fiction nobody would believe it.”[i]
The attack itself, Admiral Moorer said to Findley, was “absolutely deliberate.” And the cover-up? “The clampdown was not actually for security reasons but for domestic political reasons. I don’t think there is any question about it. What other reasons could there have been? President Johnson was worried about the reaction of Jewish voters.” (For which read, I add, the awesome power of the Zionist lobby and its many stooges in Congress). The former Chairman of the JCS added: “The American people would be god damn mad if they knew what goes on.”[ii]
As it happened, the institutions of government in America did not succeed in keeping the truth covered up because there were eye-witnesses who would not be silenced. They were the survivors of the Liberty’s crew. The first prime source of the detailed information about the actual attack is the book Assault on the Liberty.[iii] It was written by Lieutenant James M. Ennes. He was the Officer of the Deck on the Liberty throughout the attack.
On 5 June 1982 there was a reunion of Liberty survivors in the Hotel Washington in Washington D.C. The guest speaker was retired Admiral Moorer. He told the survivors that he had “never been willing to accept the Israeli explanation that it was a case of mistaken identity.” He could not accept that Israeli pilots “don’t know how to identify ships.” It followed, he said, that there “must have been some other motive”, which he was confident “some day will be made public.”[iv]
Retired Admiral Moorer’s confidence has not yet been justified. Some of the official documents have been de-classified with the most sensitive (for which read most embarrassing) passages blacked out, but other official documents and reports remain classified, TOP SECRET, and are likely to remain so for as long as America’s pork-barrel politicians are frightened of offending Zionism.
The “motive” for the attack has to be deduced from what happened in the context of the whole war of June 1967 and Dayan’s determination to stop at nothing to create the Greater Israel of gut-Zionism’s mad dream. And the key to complete understanding is knowledge of the Liberty’s capabilities and what its mission was.
A question readers might like to keep in mind is this: When Dayan ordered the attack – he wanted the Liberty to be completely destroyed with the loss of all hands on board – who was the Israeli general who protested and said, “This is pure murder”?
Below decks the communications areas – which housed the computers, listening and decoding devices manned by linguistic experts and other personnel who were changed according to the ship’s mission – were off-limits to the crew, including Captain William I. McGonagle. The communication areas were under the direct control of an NSA technician (managing spook). The on-board NSA controller for the Liberty’s June ’67 mission was known to the crew as “the Major.” With two other civilians he joined the Liberty at Rota in Spain shortly before the spy ship sailed from there for the Middle East on 2 June. The day after Dayan became minister of defence. (A coincidence?)
The Liberty’s movements were controlled by the JCS and the NSA in Washington. With a top speed of 18 knots it was faster than most ships of its kind. On both the forecastle and deckhouse aft of the bridge there were two pedestal-mounted 0.50-calibre Browning machine guns. These four guns, on open mounts without shrapnel shields, were the spy ship’s only defences. Strictly speaking the Liberty was not an unarmed vessel but for all practical purposes it was. Another sitting duck if attacked.
The Liberty’s mission was TOP SECRET and has not been acknowledged to this day.
