USS LIBERTY "INCIDENT"
On June 8, 1967,
the US Navy virtually defenseless intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked
on the high seas in international waters by air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with
that this was an American ship and lied about it being "accidental".
34 American servicemen were killed and 174 were
wounded (many were severely wounded) out of a
crew of 294. The Survivors were forbidden under the strictest of orders
for 40 years to tell
their story to the American public. The USS Liberty Memorial web site tells their story and is
dedicated to the memory of the 34 brave men who died. Visit The USS LIBERTY MEMORIAL website: http://www.gtr5.com/

'But Sir, It’s an American Ship.'
'Never Mind, Hit Her!'
When Israel Attacked USS Liberty
'The Americans have findings that show
our pilots were aware the ship was American,'
a newly published document by the State Archives says
By Ofer Aderet - HAARETZ NEWSPAPER, Israel Jul 11, 2017
Israeli communications said to prove IAF knew Liberty was U.S. ship
Amid the jubilee celebrations for the Six-Day War, the tragic story of the American spy ship
USS Liberty – which was
bombed by an Israeli fighter jet and torpedo boats on June 8, 1967
eastern Mediterranean – was somewhat overlooked. Thirty-four American sailors
were killed in the Israeliattack and many others were wounded.

Israel apologized and paid compensation to the victims’
families. Israeli and American
commissions of inquiry found that the attack
was a mistake. But naturally, as often happens
in such events, to this day
there are some who believe Israel attacked the ship
with malicious intent.
A conspiracy? Healthy suspicion? Call it what you will. A
new book published in May in the
United States (its authors include several
survivors of the attack) promises that “the truth
is being told as
never before and the real story revealed.” The 302 pages of
“Remember the Liberty!: Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas” include quite a
number of documents, testimonies, arguments and information that were gathered in the subsequent 50 years.
the jubilee celebrations for the Six-Day War, the tragic story of the American spy ship
USS Liberty – which was
bombed by an Israeli fighter jet and torpedo boats on June 8, 1967
eastern Mediterranean – was somewhat overlooked. Thirty-four American
were killed in the Israeli attack and many others were wounded.
The authors’ bottom line is that then-U.S. President
Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the
attack, in an attempt to blame then-Egyptian
President Gamal Abdel Nasser – an
excuse that would then enable the
United States to join the Six-Day War.
The book includes, among other things, a CIA document
from November 1967 that
is still partially censored. In the document, which
is also on the official CIA website,
an anonymous source is quoted as saying:
“They said that [then-Israeli Defense Minister
Moshe] Dayan personally
ordered the attack on the ship, and that one of his generals
the action and said, ‘This is pure murder.’” There is no dispute about
the authenticity of the document, but clearly not every sentence written in an intelligence
document is the unvarnished truth.
On the other hand, the new book quotes a
story reported by former U.S. Ambassador
to Lebanon Dwight Porter, who
recounted a conversation between an Israeli pilot and
the Israel Air Force
war room, which was allegedly picked up by an NSA aircraft and inadvertently
to CIA offices around the world:
Israeli pilot to
IDF war room:
"This is an American
ship. Do you still want us to attack?"
IDF war room to Israeli pilot:
"Yes, follow orders."
to IDF war room:
"But sir, it’s
an American ship - I can see the flag!"
IDF war room to Israeli pilot:
mind; hit it."
On June 8 1967, the USS LIBERTY (AGTR-5)
was attacked in international water by
Israeli forces killing 34 Americans and wounding another

Timeline of Events:
June 8, 1967, Israeli forces attack the USS Liberty. They kill 34 American
wounding 171 others. It will be the highest casualty rate ever inflicted on a U.S.
vessel, with 7 out of every 10 crew members killed or injured. It will also be the only
attack on a U.S. naval vessel that, to this day, the Congress of the United States
America formally refuses to investigate. The facts, as known, are as follow:
24 May 1967. U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) orders USSLiberty, an intelligence-gathering
to depart Abidjan for eastern Mediterranean, via Rota, Spain.
1 June 1967. Commanded by Capt. William McGonagle,
arrives at Rota to load technical support material and supplies.
2 June 1967. Liberty departs Rota at top speed of 18 knots en route
a point 13 miles off the Gaza Strip, well within international waters.
5 June 1967, 7:45 (all times cited are local Liberty time). Israel attacks Egypt, simultaneously
putting out false reports that Egypt had attacked first. Captain McGonagle asks Vice Admiral
William Martin at Sixth Fleet headquarters to send a destroyer as an armed escort and
communication center, noting that Liberty’s “self-defense capability limited to four .50
caliber machine guns and small arms.”
1967. Admiral Martin replies “Liberty is clearly marked United States ship in international
waters, not a participant in the conflict and not a reasonable subject for attack by any nation . . .
Request for escort denied.”
7 June 1967, shortly
before midnight. Office of the U.S. Defense Attaché in Tel Aviv sends
coded message to
U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) that Israel intends to attack the
her course is not changed.
8 June 1967:
0030: U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Joint Reconnaissance Center (JRC) orders Liberty to
go from 12½ to 20 nautical miles off coast. An error by the U.S. Army Communications
Center at the Pentagon results in message never reaching the ship.
0130: JRC orders Liberty to approach no closer than 100 miles to the coasts of Egypt
and Israel. Due to misrouting it will take 16½ hours for message to reach Liberty.
0600: Israeli Nord 2501 Noratlas (flying boxcar) reconnoiters Liberty.
0603: Reconnaissance aircraft reports to Israeli naval headquarters that “GTR-5”
is written on the ship, identifying it as an NSA intelligence vessel.
0720: Fresh American flag is raised.
aircraft approaches Liberty, then veers off towards
Gaza. Liberty crewmen
unable to identify markings.
1000: Two unmarked, rocket-armed,
delta-winged jets circle Liberty three times. Liberty
can count rockets and see the pilots, but see no identifying marks on the plane.
The jets radio
Israeli headquarters that the ship is flying an American flag.
“flying boxcar” with Israeli markings circles Liberty at about 200 feet.
Crew member Larry Weaver says, “I was actually able to wave to the co-pilot, a fellow
on the right-hand side of the plane. He waved back, and actually smiled at me.”
1055: Pinchas Pinchasy, naval liaison officer at Israeli air force headquarters, reports to
Naval Headquarters that the ship cruising slowly off El Arish is “an electromagnetic
audio-surveillance ship of the U.S. Navy, named Liberty, whose marking was GTR-5.”
1100 & 1130: Israeli reconnaissance aircraft again circle Liberty.
1205: Three Israeli motor torpedo boats leave Ashdod at high speed headed toward Liberty.
They are followed by Israeli air force fighters, loaded with 30mm cannon ammunition, rockets,
1215 & 1245: Israeli reconnaissance aircraft
again circle Liberty.
1341: Israeli torpedo
boats spot Liberty and call for an immediate air strike.
1358: Two unmarked delta-winged Mirage jets attack Liberty. After taking out
gun mounts, they target ship’s antennae and bridge with heat-seeking missiles.
1405: Three unmarked Dassault Mystère IIIC jets attack with napalm and rockets.
Ship tries to contact Sixth Fleet headquarters, but five of Liberty’s six shore circuits
are jammed. Radio operator manages to send distress signal from Captain McGonagle:
“Under attack by unidentified jet aircraft, require immediate assistance.” Attack lasts
approximately 22 minutes, involving 30 to 35 sorties, killing nine men and wounding
60. Israeli pilot reports to base: “Great, wonderful, she’s burning, she’s burning.”
1409: Captain Joe Tully of the USS Saratoga acknowledges call for help, dispatches
four F-4 Phantom jets, and informs Liberty that help is on the way. Within minutes U.S.
Secretary of Defense Robert MacNamara orders rescue jets to return: “Tell Sixth Fleet
to get those aircraft back immediately.” Rear Admiral Geis relays message and tells them
to re-launch jets in 90 minutes.
French-built 62-ton Israeli motor torpedo boats approach Liberty in
formation. Because the Israeli fighters had destroyed the American flag,
Captain McGonagle orders
the signalman to hoist the “holiday ensign,” the largest flag the ship has.
1435: Torpedo boats launch five German-made 19-inch torpedoes at Liberty. One
strikes starboard directly into NSA area, accounting for 25 of the 34 men who would
Torpedo boats then circle, machine-gunning the ship with armor-piercing projectiles
for another 40 minutes.
1450: Commander of Sixth Fleet
orders carriers USS America
and USS Saratoga to send aircraft to defend Liberty.
1500: NSA Sigint Command Center receives first notice of the attack from either the
America or Saratoga: “USS Liberty has been reportedly torpedoed by
source in Med near 32N 33E. Request examine all communications for possible
reaction/reflections and report accordingly.”
sent to Liberty from Sixth Fleet: “Sending aircraft to cover you.
units on the way.” Liberty is off the air and does not receive the message.
1511: First “official” notice that Liberty is under
reaches National Military Command Center in Washington.
1515: After the order to “prepare to abandon ship” comes over the loudspeaker system,
the lifeboats are lowered into the water. Israeli torpedo boats move in closer and fire on them,
as well as those still on deck, making them all unusable. “I watched with horror as the floating
life rafts were riddled with holes,” recalled Lieutenant Lloyd Painter, in charge of the evacuation.
Said Petty Officer Rowley, who also witnessed the event: “They didn’t want anyone to live.”
After destroying the life rafts, the Israeli boats departed. Next, two Israeli SA-321 Super Frelon
Hornet assault helicopters carrying soldiers in battle dress circle ship several times, then depart.
1520: Commander of Sixth Fleet announces that 12 aircraft
will be launched at 1545 to arrive nearLiberty at 1715.
1532: Walt Rostow, President Johnson’s Special Assistant for
Affairs, notifies the president of the attack.
torpedo boats return, then leave.
1545: USS Saragota
and America launch second rescue flights.
1555: Liberty regains
its transmitter; still has no receiver.
1600: Liberty transmits:
“Flash, flash, flash. I pass in the blind. We are under attack by
aircraft and high-speed
surface craft.” Deputy Director Louis Tordella is informed by
Deputy Director of Joint
Reconnaissance Center, Captain Vineyard, that “consideration
was then being given by
some unnamed Washington authorities to sink theLiberty in
order that newspaper
men would be unable to photograph her and thus inflame public
opinion against the Israelis.”
Tordella makes an “impolite” comment about
the idea, writes a memo of the conversation
for the record, and stores it away.
1605: Liberty transmits:
“Request immediate assistance. Torpedo hit starboard side.”
1614: American embassy relays Israeli apology to White House, Department of State,
Sixth Fleet that an unidentified “maybe Navy” ship has been erroneously attacked.
1615: Two unidentified jets approach Liberty, then veer off.
1630: Israeli jets and three torpedo boats return, offer assistance.
Captain McGonagle refuses their help. Boats leave after 12 minutes.
1639: Secretary of Defense McNamara again orders rescue planes recalled; order is
by President Johnson because “we are not going to embarrass an ally.”
Attaché at U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv, Commander Ernest Castle, is summoned to
Defense Forces headquarters.
1717: Deputy Secretary
of Defense orders that all news releases on attack are to
be made in Washington. Soon after,
Israeli helicopter approaches
Liberty and requests permission to land. McGonagle
refuses. Helicopter departs.
1729: Rear Admiral Lawrence
Geis, commander of the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean,
protests decision to recall rescue
planes to Secretary of Defense McNamara. At that
point President Johnson comes on the phone
and says he didn’t care if the ship sunk,
he would not embarrass his allies. Admiral
Geis tells Lt. Commander David Lewis,
head of the Liberty’s NSA group, of
the remark, but asks him not to repeat it until after
he dies. It is a promise Lewis will honor.
1915: Captain McGonagle, wounded and exhausted, dictates first report on estimated
casualties: 10 dead; 15 severely wounded; 75 total wounded;
missing. His estimates would prove low.
9 June 1967:
After midnight: Soviet guided missile destroyer sends flashing-light message in English:
“Do you need help?” Liberty responds: “No thank you.”
Soviets answer: “I will stand by in case you need me.”
0600: USS Navy destroyers Davis and Massey arrive.
Mid-morning: Dead and wounded are evacuated by helicopter.
1450: Israeli Lt. Col. Michael Bloch telephones Commander Castle that Liberty,
it was not flying a flag, had been mistaken for the Egyptian supply ship
El Queseir. State Department assures Congress that attack was accidental.
10 June 1967: Vice Admiral McCain orders Rear Admiral
to convene Navy Court of Inquiry.
11 June 1967: Admiral
Kidd boards Liberty
with small staff to head Navy Court of Inquiry.
14 June 1967: Liberty arrives in Malta. Total news blackout imposed.
Rear Admiral Kidd
warns crew: “You are never, repeat never, to discuss this with anyone,
not even your wives.
If you do, you will be court-martialed and will end your lives in prison
Secretary of Defense McNamara informs media that,
of Defense will have no further comment.”
15 June 1967: Secretary
of State Dean Rusk tells NATO ambassadors in Luxembourg that
Israel’s attack was deliberate.
His remark is reported in European, but not U.S. papers.
June 1967: Israeli Court of Inquiry exonerates Israeli government and all those
saying that its torpedo boats erroneously reported the Liberty’s speed at
knots instead of 5, and that the Liberty flew no flag and had no identifying markings.
Later, Israel will honor Motor Torpedo Boat 203, the one that fired the deadly torpedo
at the Liberty, by putting its wheel and bell on display in its naval museum,
among those maritime items of which it is most proud.
July 1967: Shortly after the burial of six Liberty crewmen in Arlington National Cemetery,
a monument is erected describing the six as having “Died in the Eastern Mediterranean.”
Libertysurvivors complain that the marking is evasive and improper.
September 1967: State Department legal adviser Carl Salans finds many
discrepancies with the Israeli report. His report is classified Top Secret.
11 June 1968: Captain McGonagle is awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Medal, usually presented by the President of the United States at the White House,
by the Secretary of the Navy during a hastily arranged ceremony at the
Washington D.C. Navy
Yard. Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, the Chief of Naval Operations,
calls the way the Medal is presented
a back-handed slap. “Everyone else received their
medal at the White House,” Moorer
will later observe. “President Johnson
must have been concerned about the reaction of
the Israeli lobby.”
1980: National Security Agency
Director Marshall Carter tells investigative author James Bamford
that, regarding the attack
on the Liberty, “There was no other answer than that it was deliberate.”
1981: National Security Agency review, “Attack on a Sigint Collector, the USS Liberty Incident,”
rejects the Israeli Court of Inquiry’s “mistake” theory and accuses Israeli
fighter pilots and torpedo boat crewmen and commanders of perjury.
1982: Israeli senior lead pilot approaches former Congressman Pete McCloskey
and admits that he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters,
and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack.
He said he refused
to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.
1982: A new headstone for the six Liberty crew members at Arlington National Cemetery
is unveiled. This one reads: “Killed USS Liberty June 8, 1967.”
1986: Lt. Commander Walter H. Jacobsen writes in Naval Law Review: “To speculate
on the motives of an attack group that uses unmarked planes and deprives helpless survivors
of life rafts raises disturbing possibilities, including the one that the Liberty crew was
not meant to survive the attack…”
November 1991: Columnists Evans and Novak publish interview with Dwight Porter,
to Lebanon in 1967, in which Porter says that during or immediately
after the attack on the Liberty the
CIA station chief showed him transcripts of intercepted
Israeli messages. One has Israel ordering
the attack on the Liberty, another has an
Israeli pilot replying it’s an
American ship. When the order to attack is repeated,
the pilot insists he can see the American
flag. The pilot is told again: “Attack it.”
June 1997: Adm. Thomas H. Moorer, appointed Chief of Naval Operations shortly
attack on the Liberty, tells a reunion of survivors: “I have to conclude that it
was Israel’s intent to sink the Liberty and leave as few survivors as possible. Israel knew
perfectly well that the ship was American.”
1998: Captain McGonagle breaks his long silence: “After many years I
that the attack was deliberate. I don’t think there has been an adequate
of the incident . . . The flag was flying prior to the attack…”
die four months later, on March 3, 1999.
"I knew it was like going up against a 5-alarm fire with a squirt gun,
but I was not about to go to my grave and then on to meet my Maker
and have to account for the fact that in my country's most desperate hour,
I had sat back and done nothing."

are different types of False Flags
that have occurred throughout ancient and modern
history. The most popular False
Flag is when a
government carries out an attack on its own
people, then blames it on some enemy, either
or domestic, and is then justified in
attacking the falsely accused perpetrators. 9/11 is
a perfect example.
Another type of False Flag is when a government

declaration of war because THEY started it. Pearl
Harbor is a for instance.
And there are the
fabricated False Flag attacks that didn’t happen at

summer of 1954, when a failed operation,
named Operation Susannah was conducted in
As part of that False Flag operation, a group of
Egyptian Jews were recruited by Israeli military

Egyptian, American, and British owned targets.
The bombings were to be blamed

malcontents with the aim of creating an

The operation resulted in no casualties apart from

The U.S.S. Liberty
“The world is a dangerous place to live; not
because of the
people who are evil, but because of
the people who don’t do anything about it.”
The U.S.S. Liberty massacre or so called
on June 8, 1967 in
international waters 13 miles off the coast of the
Sinai Peninsula during the so called Arab-Israeli
Six Day War.
The Liberty was a lightly armed U.S. Navy
surveillance ship (call it a spy ship if you’d like)
with a crew of 294 officers and men on board. The
mission was to monitor the military
actions taking place onshore between our ally
Israel, and their Egyptian foes.
Two hours after the Liberty arrived near the scene,
the Israeli Defense
Forces sent out plainly marked
reconnaissance aircraft to identify the ship. Eight
flyovers were made over a three-hour
large U.S. flag made the Liberty easily
recognizable as being American. The ship’s U.S.
designation, GTR5, was plainly painted in
large white lettering on the bow.
The crew was relaxed and many off-duty crewmen
were on deck sunning themselves and enjoying the

By now there
were dozens of killed and wounded American
sailors. Of course the ship’s radio team was trying
to issue SOS distress calls, but Israeli aircraft were

specialists described as a ‘buzz

and replaced by a

about the unfolding events,
particularly the part about the inability of the
Israelis to sink the ship in a timely
Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, he
ordered the jets to return to the U.S.S. Saratoga.
The attack on the Liberty continued with three
Israeli torpedo boats also engaging, scoring a
torpedo hit, tearing
a 40-foot wide hole in the hull,
flooding the lower compartments, and killing a
dozen more American sailors. As
began listing, rafts were lowered over the side to
facilitate abandonment of the ship. The Israeli
torpedo boats raked the rafts with machine gunfire.
It was apparent that there were to be no survivors.
After two hours of nonstop attack the Israelis
finally ceased fire.
One of the torpedo boats
approached the Liberty at which point an Israeli
officer asked in English with the aid
of a bullhorn,
“Do you need any help?” A wounded Capt.
William McGonagle ordered the quartermaster to
respond with an unmistakable, “Fuck you.” The
Israeli boat turned and left evidently aware that a
Destroyer was arriving on the scene in
response to the distress calls. The Soviet Destroyer

and their destroyer arriving and
the operation probably would have worked out
well, or terrible, depending upon your point of
view. Of course, within three weeks, an official
report was released describing the awful but
involving the Liberty.
“These errors do occur,” Secretary of Defense
Robert McNamara concluded.
The cover story and cover up is almost as
outrageous as the attack.
I could go on about the
cover up, but the still living survivors who are no
longer disposed to shut up, can best
tell that story.
Lt. Commander James Ennes relates first hand his
experience in his book, Assault on the Liberty.
Survivor, and past president of the Liberty
Veterans Association, Philip Tourney, wrote his
book called, What
I Saw That Day. Tourney also
mans the helm on every Saturday on the Republic

He and some of the other elderly U.S.S Liberty
survivors will not let allow the lies of the
governments of America and Israel stand and will
push for the truth till they are dead.
The BBC produced a documentary about the
Liberty incident called, Dead in the Water, which
can be found on YouTube in its entirety. The
book, Operation Cyanide, by BBC investigative
journalist Peter Hounam

years ago, I posted a link on my Facebook page to

my 1,200 Facebook “friends” if they had ever
heard about this incident and why hadn’t I heard of
it? Only one Navy vet offered that he had heard
about it. Everyone else, except two
people, who responded claimed total ignorance.
Those two people immediately attacked me in the
Facebook comments accusing me of being
Nazi for posting anti-Semitic lies.
I was surprised
and my feelings were hurt. I’d
never been called a neo or any other kind of Nazi
before! I have Jewish pals

and wounded on the Liberty had it coming because
it was a spy ship! ...Well, yes it was a spy ship, but

An interesting person involved in the Liberty
incident was Admiral John S. McCain (the Arizona
father and Commander of European U.S.
Naval Forces, including the 6 th Fleet, in June 1967)
for his role in the
cover up. Senator McCain, to
this day, will defend his position that the slaughter
of 34 American sailors (170 wounded)
“accident of mistaken identity.”
you’d like to see a U.S. Senator get red faced
and squirm, just ask Senator John McCain if the
massacre will ever be
reinvestigated. He is totally on board with the
continuing U.S.S. Liberty whitewash to the
of having endorsed, in writing, the completely
bogus disinformation book, The Liberty Incident,
by a Jewish bankruptcy lawyer from
Florida named A.J. Cristol.
Cristol’s version of the U.S.S. Liberty “incident” is
complete bullshit designed to convince any
that the “incident” was an accident... and IT WAS
NOT AN ACCIDENT! His book was sent to every
member of Congress to be used as a “reference
book” in case any politicians or their constituents
bring up the issue of the U.S.S. Liberty
demanding justice and a reinvestigation.
To refer to Arizona Senator John McCain III as a “war
hero” is an insult to war heroes.
John McCain’s father,
Admiral John McCain II, was a key player in the U.S.S.

The Most Incredible
Story Never Told:
LBJ’s Order to Destroy the USS Liberty
LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON is a president
who has escaped the scrutiny and judgment
of history despite considerable documentation
that should make him an outstanding candidate
for historical review, critique,
and analysis. His primary biographer, Robert Caro, consistently
gets rave book
reviews from mainstream media for his disingenuous puff piece books on LBJ.
entirely possible that LBJ is the most evil or one of the most evil presidents in US history.
(ILLUSTRATION: The USS Liberty post-Israeli attack)
Some researchers believe that LBJ was the mastermind behind JFK’s
researcher Phillip F. Nelson wrote a book documenting his investigation on
LBJ: The Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination.
However, one of the greatest unknown chapters
in LBJ’s presidency is that he personally
gave the order to Israel to bomb and utterly
destroy the USS Liberty and its entire crew of
294 Americans. Astoundingly, when the mission
went awry and Sixth Fleet Commanders
were ordering the rescue of the besieged and bloodied USS
Liberty crew, LBJ ordered
that rescue operations be called back, at least twice. Against all
odds, the USS Liberty
survived but after the attack, 34 Americans lay dead. Except for four
worthless .50 caliber
machine guns, the USS Liberty was unarmed and defenseless against the
far superior firing
power of the Israeli navel and air force armada that descended upon it with
and unspeakable terror.
Not a whole lot
has been written about the USS Liberty. It’s just another critically important
has been buried in history, but two extraordinary books document the truth.
James M. Ennes Jr.,
is a retired US Naval Officer and a survivor of the Liberty attack
who wrote a book that documents
his investigative disclosure of the truth, here.
Peter Hounam, an investigative journalist, wrote
Operation Cyanide, Why the Bombing of the USS Liberty Nearly Caused World War III.
Hounam’s extraordinary book, published in 2003, relies heavily on the work of
and also documents numerous interviews that Hounam conducted with the
USS Liberty survivors as well as other folks in the US, British, and Israeli governments.
The “official” story of the USS Liberty, according to the government and mainstream media
version of the event, is that on June 8, 1967 the Israelis accidentally bombed the Liberty
the coast of Egypt and killed 34 American sailors.
Lyndon B. Johnson
The real story is that President
Johnson, who was being battered in the polls over the
Vietnam War and facing a general election
loss and even losing the Democrat primary,
[encouraged] the Israelis to bomb the Liberty to
create a casus belli and to secure a
Gulf-of-Tonkin-style resolution to explode the
world into war — because in America everybody
loves an outraged and indignant president
who will use the full force of the
military at the slightest provocation, even a government-planned
false flag attack.
The USS Liberty, however, encompasses far more than a murderous
American president resorting to hideously evil deeds to get re-elected. In addition
ordering the total destruction of the USS Liberty and potentially sending 294 Americans
to a watery grave in the Mediterranean Sea, LBJ also ordered the nuclear bombing of
Cairo, an event specifically designed to create a nuclear war by blaming the entire
affair on Russia or Egypt. More horrifying, it’s documented that US planes
were on emergency
standby orders as pilots waited on the runways in their planes armed
with nuclear weapons. The
nuclear bombing of Cairo was called off only three minutes
before the nuclear bomb drops.
As fate would have it, LBJ’s plan blew up in his face and
the world got
a reprieve from a US-induced nuclear holocaust.
How did all this happen? First, it must be understood
that the USS Liberty was
supposed to be destroyed and sunk within minutes and without any survivors.
The actual attack on the USS Liberty commenced at 2:00 p.m. Israel time on June 8, 1967.
The USS Liberty was 13 miles off the coast of Gaza and moving slowly at five knots.
crew had observed several flyovers by Israeli reconnaissance planes earlier in the day.
When the USS Liberty was struck, it was struck with an awesome force. According to
a website created by the survivors to document and
expose the truth, the ship was first struck
by Israeli fighter aircraft:
aircraft launched a rocket attack on USS Liberty. The aircraft made repeated
firing passes, attacking USS Liberty with rockets and their internal cannons. After the
first flight of fighter aircraft had exhausted their ordnance, subsequent flights of Israeli
fighter aircraft continued to prosecute the attack with rockets, cannon fire, and
During the air attack, USS Liberty’s crew had difficulty
contacting Sixth Fleet to request
assistance due to intense communications
jamming. The initial targets on the ship were
bridge, communications antennas, and the four .50 caliber machine
guns, placed on the ship to repel boarders.
After the Israeli fighter aircraft completed their attacks, three Israeli torpedo boats
arrived and began a surface attack about 35 minutes after the start of the air
The torpedo boats launched a total of five torpedoes, one
of which struck the side of
USS Liberty, opposite the ship’s
research spaces.  Twenty-six Americans in addition
to the eight
who had been killed in the earlier air attacks, were killed as a result of this explosion.
Following their torpedo attack, the torpedo boats moved up
and down the length of
the ship (both the port and starboard sides),
continuing their attack, raking the ship
with cannon and machine
gun fire. In Malta, crewmen were later assigned the task
of counting all of the holes in the ship that were the size of a man’s hand or larger.
They found a total of 861 such holes, in addition to “thousands” of .50 caliber machine
gun holes.”, link here.

1100 & 1130: Israeli reconnaissance aircraft again circle Liberty.
The above information is critically important because it proves beyond any reasonable
doubt that the Israelis were well aware that the USS Liberty was a well-marked US spy
ship. US spy ships are extremely easy to spot because, as telecommunication vessels,
loaded with wires, antennas and other communication gear that are easily
recognized and identifiable
(unlike Russian spy ships that were realistically camouflaged
as trawlers and fishing boats).
The reason it’s important to understand this is because the
cover-up of of the USS Liberty
incident was so flimsy and fictitious that both the US and
Israeli governments officially stated
that the USS Liberty was mistook
for an Egyptian vessel that hauls horses. This is simply impossible.
As the timeline unfolds, it’s clear that the attack on the USS Liberty had two goals:
1. first destroy and disable all communication capabilities and
2. sink the ship, her
crew and guarantee that there were no survivors. The timeline continues:
Two unmarked delta-winged Mirage jets attack Liberty. After taking out
gun mounts, they target
ship’s antennae and bridge with heat-seeking missiles.
1424: Three French-built
62-ton Israeli motor
torpedo boats approach Liberty in attack formation.
1435: Torpedo boats launch five German-made 19-inch torpedoes at Liberty.
One torpedo strikes starboard directly into NSA area, accounting for 25 of the 34
who would be killed. Torpedo boats then circle, machine-gunning
the ship with armor-piercing
projectiles for another 40 minutes.
At this point, the USS Liberty
was being pummeled by air and sea with everything that attack
planes and motorized torpedo boats
(MTB’s) could possibly throw at them. The decks were
ablaze from napalm fires, the ship
was being torpedoed by the Israeli Navy and bombs and
rockets from the air rained down on them.
This is where the story turns extraordinarily heroic from human ingenuity that pretty much
killed LBJ’s grand plan. One of the USS Liberty’s communication transformers had been
down and not functioning, something the Israeli’s must have known in advance because
wasn’t destroyed or even hit. A courageous crew member managed to fix it by stringing
long wires across a burning deck and rendered it operable, and, of course, capable of
out a mayday message to numerous US aircraft that permeated the area. However,
the Israeli planes
had high tech jamming equipment that successfully jammed the signal.
It’s probably also
true that at that point the Israeli’s were not much concerned with the
USS Liberty sending
out a message because they believed that all communication
equipment was knocked out permanently.
Peter Hounam writes in Operation Cyanide, “Liberty radioman Richard Sturman concluded
that the attackers had carefully prepared for the attack with the specific intention of preventing
the ship communicating with the outside world. To do so effectively they must have had
knowledge from shore-based receivers of the five frequencies being used by the
ship, so that
jamming gear could be tuned to them. Sturman recalled his anger when he
discovered that the
international distress frequency, used for Mayday messages, was also jammed”.
astute crew however made a startling discovery. The Israeli jamming capabilities
did not work
when they were actually engaged bombing and the USS Liberty crew had
windows of a few seconds
of opportunity in between strikes to send out a message.
Hounam writes, “At
first, the signalmen felt their task was hopeless. Plane after plane was
swooping in on the
ship, firing cannon, shooting missiles and dropping napalm….Then someone
there was a respite from the jamming, lasting just a few seconds, when the
fired their missiles. Halman grabbed the opportunity and shouted into the
mike, ‘Any station,
this is Rockstar. We are under attack by unidentified jet aircraft and
require immediate assistance!'”.
On the USS Saratoga (call-sign ‘Schematic’) the radioman
picked up the message
but it was garbled, possibly by further jamming. “Rockstar, this is
he said. ‘Say again, you are garbled.'”
Eventually, the USS Liberty
message was acknowledged and authenticated 10 minutes
after the attack began. The USS Saratoga
confirmed Liberty’s message with “Roger,
Rockstar. Authentication is correct…”.
The messaged bounced everywhere and was even
acknowledged by two US embassies in the region.
Furthermore, it was impossible for the
Pentagon not to know of Liberty’s attack as all
messages are also automatically routed to
the Pentagon and other government agencies. The Israelis
must have also intercepted the radio message.
The Liberty crew was relieved and
believed that help was on the way. Wrong! Although
fleet commanders quickly ordered rescue operations,
twice the rescue missions were
ordered called back by Secretary of Defense Robert
McNamara, a close friend and trusted
associate of LBJ. In fact, it’s documented that during
one of the conversations between
the the Sixth Fleet Commander and McNamara, LBJ got on the
phone and roared,
“We will not embarrass an ally,” to reinforce McNamara’s
direct command from
LBJ to not rescue the ailing USS Liberty and her crew.
According to James Ennes, the entire attack lasted 1 hour and 15 minutes, although some
crew members believe it was longer. Unquestionably, the attack was sheer hell for those on
board the USS Liberty and the agony was prolonged by the fact that help from the
never arrived as expected.
Then something extraordinary happened. The Israelis stopped
attacking despite having more
than enough firepower to finish the job of sinking the USS Liberty
and her crew. Its been
documented that the Israelis had commando helicopter crews hovering above
Liberty with a crew to finish the job. Clearly, the USS Liberty crew expected to die.
But with the message out and everybody knowing about it, including the Russians who
knew what was going because they were close by in their own disguised spy ships as
they intercepted the message or possibly even observed the USS Liberty being attacked,
panicked, called off the attack and never finished the job. Eventually, the
was rescued and many were badly injured.
Hounam documents an interview with one
of the injured USS Liberty crew members, Joe Lentini:
I woke up, it
was pitch-black and I was in water. I tried to stand up and put my weight
on my left leg and
it wouldn’t support me, obviously I fell back down; I didn’t know
at the time I
had six broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a fractured skull, both tympanic
membranes in my ears
were blown out, shrapnel all over me in my body…it never occurred
to me that I didn’t
have a leg and it never occurred to me that I was about to die.
the USS Liberty tragedy did not begin at 2:00 p.m. Israeli time according to the
version. It began earlier. According to Hounam, he interviewed a retired
Air Force pilot, Jim
Nanjo, who spent 20 years on the H-bomb attack force. The job of such
pilots who lived on US
air bases was to be ready to jump into a plane and carry out
Nanjo told Hounam about how he was awakened on the morning of 6/8/67 between 2:00 a.m.
and no later than 4:00 a.m. by an alert that told him an emergency situation existed and
he needed to man his plane immediately. Other bomber pilots were also manning their planes
revving up their engines waiting for the “go” order and their orders. They knew nothing
about their mission and Hounam writes:
Nanjo was in no doubt
that the world was near to Armageddon that day…
was however one other significance of his story that he had not spotted. The klaxons
him at between 1 am. and 4 am; he was certain it was no later, but the
Liberty was not attacked
until 5 am California time. How were the American military
and their commander in chief, Lyndon
Johnson, able to anticipate the attack, and yet
apparently not know the Israelis were behind
Hounam also documents that Nanjo was aware that other US Air Force
bases were under
the same highest alert in Guam, Britain, Moron, Spain as well as in
the US. What
was Nanjo carrying? Hounam writes:
Even after 35 years, he was reluctant to provide details of the bombs carried by his
squadron that morning.: ‘Other than to say it was a weapon of mass destruction. I
able to give you the nomenclature.’ Then he confirmed that they were carrying
weapons — H-bombs…
It’s well documented that
LBJ and his trusted Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara,
were deeply and personally involved
in the USS Liberty tragedy, the cover-up
of the truth and even a scheme to explode the world
into nuclear warfare.
To comprehend the severity of the situation, it’s imperative
to understand the Cold War,
the backdrop against which it was played, the prevalent paranoia
at the time of the Communist
threat and the incredible rise of America’s military industrial
complex to the world’s sole
superpower. Many who knew LBJ well feared that he was unstable,
mentally ill, a psychopath,
or even worse. He was notoriously crude and vulgar. Denis Healey,
the Secretary of
Defense in Britain so despised and distrusted LBJ that he wrote in his memoirs:
Lyndon Johnson was a monster….

That LBJ was mad is validated by his numerous actions that fueled his personal ambitions
the decades and in the summer of 1967. LBJ was obsessed with one thing and one
thing only: reelection.
He was in grave danger of losing the presidency and his power.
That he would do anything to
maintain that power is 100% consistent with the depth of his evil.
But LBJ was also
an extraordinarily clever master politician who profoundly understood how
a raucous game of
geopolitics could be played and manipulated to his own advantage,
especially when it came to
courting the approval of the American people. Vietnam was already
a whopper of a failure and
LBJ’s war was growing more unpopular by the second.
The Middle East has always
been a disaster (some things never change), at least since oil
came into play and the modern
nation state of Israel was created by the United Nations in
1948. The rise of Arab nationalism
was also heating up as Egyptian President Gamal Nasser
and the Marxist styled Baathist movements
were flourishing. Syria and Iraq had shed
western imposed monarchs and were raising their own
brand of dictators. Israel was
becoming America’s unofficial 51st state as the Evangelical
movement was rising in anticipation
of fulfilling Biblical prophecy now that Israel existed
for the first time since Biblical times.
The bellicose rhetoric blossomed as Arab
leaders publicly vowed to destroy Israel.
This was nothing new and even the Israelis perceived
that such utterances were an appeasement
to the neurotic Arab street rather than an actual
threat. Still, that didn’t stop Israel from
launching the preemptive Six Day War.
The significance of the Six Day War as it relates to the USS Liberty is that the USS Liberty
was bombed on the fourth day of the Six Day War — that Israel had actually won during
the first hour of the first day of the Six Day War when it wiped out the entire Egyptian Air Force.
The geopolitical drama of the Middle East is acutely linked to the Cold War because the
Union was arming and funding Middle East regimes, notably Egypt and Syria.
The Middle East was
a pawn on the chessboard of America vs. the Soviets during the
Cold War because influential
dominance of the region was a key goal of both nations.
Of course, the obviously oily nature
of Middle East natural resources was considered a prize.
Israeli Prime Minster
Yitzhak Rabin paid a visit to former Israeli Prime Minster David Ben Gurion
who is Israeli’s
most esteemed national hero, loved and respected by all. Ben Gurion
was appalled at the prospects
of war with Egypt or anybody, and is reported to have told Rabin,
“You made a mistake….
You led the state into a grave situation. We must not go to war.”
reportedly horrified that he didn’t have the blessing of Ben Gurion for a preemptive war.
Gurion isn’t shy about war; in fact, he was the leader of Israel’s War of Independence when
Israel was the the target of Arab military violence right after the UN declared Israel a nation.
Though a fighter and even a terrorist according to some, Ben Gurion preferred peace and
with his cantankerous Arab neighbors because war was always hideously destructive.
was behind the Six Day War and why? It’s highly unlikely that Israel unilaterally
the Six Day War without specific instructions and support from the US. Some
that the US and LBJ engineered the Six Day War as part of America’s
Cold War strategy
to humiliate the Soviet Union and and advance US hegemony in the Middle East.
it’s ludicrous to accept that Israel accidentally bombed the USS Liberty and it’s
obvious that the official US/Israel version is so flimsy a cover-up that any citizen
using his Google fingers could credibly research enough facts to blow that lie to shreds.
However, the USS Liberty incident was far more sinister. Nasser, other Arab leaders, and
journalists tended to believe that the U.S. and Britain were behind the Six Day War
participated. The consensus in the Arab world was that the entire Israeli Air
sufficient in numerical strength to accomplish the now infamous Israeli aerial
struck the Egyptian Air Force with such a devastating force that the entire
Egyptian Air Force
was demolished. Moreover, it appears that the Arab world was clueless
about US plans to start
a war with Egypt through its proxy Israel and/or that the nuclear bombing of
Cairo was on the
table. Hounam writes:
Before Day Four of the war, Nasser had been accusing
the US and Britain of directly
assisting Israel. After the hot-line exchange about the Liberty,
he was convinced of it.
Of course, he was not aware that the ‘reconnaissance planes’
had in fact been on
their way to bomb Cairo or…. that an atomic device could have been
a guy named Joe Sorrels who back in the 1960s was doing freelance
and intelligence work for the US and Britain. Sorrels was no ordinary
with skills; his function was sufficiently important that he personally
Amit, head of the Mossad, the Israeli secret service. Hounam writes:
From his viewpoint, it seemed the Israelis were responding to
the United States to eradicate Nasser; Israel was not the prime mover….
According to Sorrels the war plans went well, the driving force being the US…
Sorrels described as ‘horse shit’ the commonly-held notion that Israel fought this war on
its own: ‘Anybody working around intelligence knows it isn’t true’. He repeated
that Operation Cyanide was a secret plan to start a war against Egypt….
said Israel’s only motive was to grab territory, nothing more, and it was
in the United States who were pushing them to invade Egypt…”
The USS Liberty survivors had organized over the years and met periodically
research and contribute their version of what happened on June 8, 1967.
At a 5/4/2002
gathering, Hounam met with Moe Schafer and shared his recollection
of two important USS Liberty events:
Before the attack he was cleaning the moon-bounce dish and watched as an Israeli
flew low over the ship taking photographs….it was confirmation of the
testimony of other
eyewitnesses that Israel was well aware of the ship’s presence.
The second memory from after the attack was much more significant. Moe said he
hurt by shrapnel during the assault…. Unlike most of the injured who had already
taken away to the USS America, he was loaded into a helicopter and flown to the
the flagship of Sixth Fleet commander Admiral Martin. The next morning
he was sitting on his
bunk with two or three other injured men when Martin came in to see them.
Shafer said he seemed to want to tell someone about what had happened before
be obliged through pressure from above to clam up: ‘Not only did Admiral
tell me that four jets were on their way to the Liberty with conventional
[and were recalled]; he stated that four were on their way to Cairo loaded
weapons. He stated they were three minutes from bombing them [the Egyptians].
He also said
that the jets could not land back on the carrier with nuclear arms and they
had had to land
in Athens. He stated this from my beside while on the Little Rock
[the codename of the flagship]
after the attack.
story told by Moe Schafer about Admiral Martin confirming that the US planned to
Cairo is also a story that is validated by Air Force pilot Jim Nanjo in California and a
member of the H-bomb attack force. Nanjo didn’t know that Cairo was the target, only that
he and other crews were on standby to take off and drop nuclear bombs. Nanjo could never
understand why he was called out of bed in the middle of the night on June 8, 1967 (California time)
before the USS Liberty was attacked by Israel. Nanjo also confirmed that he knew
nuclear bomb units were under the same alert in Guam, Britain, Moron,
Spain as well as in the US.
a U.S. president would give an order to nuke Cairo, explode the world into nuclear
war and destroy an unarmed and defenseless U.S. military vessel with a crew of nearly
300 is beyond incomprehensibly evil. This is something that the USS Liberty survivors
have struggled with over the decades but the more they analyzed their own research and
eyewitness accounts, the more they were convinced that no other conclusions could be drawn.
The hardest thing for the survivors to accept relative to what happened that day was the fact
that their own government, the very same government they swore an oath to
serve as a matter of patriotism and duty to their county, would do such a thing.
In the context of the “red meat” geopolitical ramifications
on June 8, 1967, there are several extraordinary takeaways.
1. The USS Liberty crew member who string
wired a telecommunication device on the
burning and napalmed deck of the ship
and facilitated Liberty’s ability to get a message
out played a key role
in averting a disaster of Biblical proportions. Once the message
got out, everybody
got it including the Israelis, the Pentagon, NSA, the White House,
other U.S. intelligence and defense agencies, the State Department, U.S.
and the Soviets whose outstanding spy capabilities didn’t miss a thing.
cat was out of the proverbial bag.
The Israelis acknowledged their role in the USS Liberty attack and vigorously collaborated
with the U.S. in the “it was an accident” cover-up. Unquestionably, the Israelis do have
blood on their hands. But in a perverse sort of way, the Israelis may have deliberately
sabotaged the attack because they did indeed have the firepower to quickly sink the
USS Liberty and her crew — but they didn’t. There are accounts about Israeli pilots
were carrying out their orders by dropping their bombs into the Mediterranean
Sea on purpose.
Whether they did it as a matter of conscience or on direct orders,
we’ll never know.
Israelis were in fact terrified of an Arab-Soviet alliance and they dreaded unleashing
a global and regional nuclear war because they believed they would indeed be a target for
annihilation. The Israelis were, however, motivated to engage in some level of warfare to
expand their own obsession with real estate. The Israelis wanted land and after the
Six Day War they indeed ended up with the West Bank, Jerusalem, Gaza, and Syria’s Golan Heights.
It’s entirely possible that the Israelis
thwarted LBJ and his draconian plans but it’s also
true that Israel played
along with the US but only to the extent that it could maneuver
of it for Israel….
The Soviets were well aware of what was going on relative to the USS Liberty and probably
even LBJ’s plan to spark a US-Soviet confrontation through its proxies in the Middle East,
especially Egypt. There was considerable ‘buzz’ between DC and Moscow on June 8, 1967
and it’s entirely possible that Moscow screamed to DC something that went like this
diplomatic language: “Hey you idiots, we’re on to you, we
know what you did and if you take
it any further we’ll tell the whole damn
world about it and expose your president
for the murderous psychopath that he
is.” The Soviets did not want war.
4. Only the president of the United States could give the order to launch warplanes loaded
with nuclear bombs and only the president could give the order to recall the order.
That LBJ was such a demented power-mad psychopath who directly and personally
orders that brought the planet within three minutes of a nuclear holocaust
that would vaporize
all or part of Cairo, the largest city in the Arab world,
with a 1960s population of over 8 million
(now 20 million), should be shocking
for clueless Americans — but it’s not shocking for the very
and folks who researched and dug for the truth. However, what is
even more shocking
is that LBJ’s role in the Six Day War and the USS Liberty, as well
grand schemes to reorder the world and even create a nuclear war to
ambitions, continues to be covered up in the United States.
LBJ didn’t do this alone and his close associates in the Pentagon, CIA, State Department,
and intelligence agencies were all complicit and willing partners. Furthermore,
LBJ was indeed
angry that he was somewhat restricted by the Constitution and
Congress. An Israeli diplomat,
Eppie Evron, recalled a meeting he had with LBJ
on 5/26/67 as documented by Hounam:
“Then he went on to say, “I, Lyndon Johnson, have to get congressional approval if I want
to act as President of the United States. Otherwise, I’m just a six-foot-four Texan friend
of Israel.” (That description stuck in my memory.) “But you and I, the two most
powerful people in Washington, are going to get Congress to pass another Tonkin resolution.”….
I thought, “He’s telling me that Congress is never going to give him permission to use military force.”….
To be sure, LBJ was lamenting his own lack of power and resented any accountability
to anyone. For a power-mad autocrat like LBJ, consulting with Congress
or requesting Congressional action was humiliating and beneath him.
(For more on the false-flag Gulf Tonkin Resolution, see
De-classified Vietnam-era Transcripts Show Senators Knew Gulf Of Tonkin Was A Staged False Flag Event.)
… Sifting through the lies, propaganda and disinformation
definitely requires an open mind,
diligence and the ability to astutely decipher
geopolitical consequences and intentions
that are deliberately obfuscated, twisted,
and distorted by government and the media.
We do in fact live under the cloud of a dangerous, unaccountable,
and shadow government that plots unspeakable evil.
The USS Liberty cost American taxpayers $40 million but was sold for scrap in 1970 for just
$101,000. Things only got worse for LBJ and he announced on 3/31/68 that he would not
seek re-election, probably because he couldn’t bear losing in a primary or general election.
LBJ dropped dead of a heart attack on 1/22/73 and is still revered as one of America’s
liberal progressive Democratic presidents despite his attempts to explode
the world into
nuclear war, despite his direct orders to sink the USS Liberty,
despite murdering millions
of Asians, and despite being responsible for over

How LBJ's Vietnam War Paralyzed
His Mideast Policymakers
In the summer of 1967, Iwas a staff writer for President Lyndon B. Johnson at the
House. I was aware of that year's Middle East crisis but, like most Americans,
understood little about it other than
the fact that it involved Jews and Arabs. In that year
I did not know a single Arab, and possibly LBJ did not either.
Like most Americans,
I was pro-Israel, Israel having been sold to most all of us as the underdog.
around me, without exception, was pro-Israel. Johnson had a dozen or more
close associates and aides who were both
Jewish and pro-Israel. There were Walt Rostow
at the White House, his brother Eugene at State, and Arthur Goldberg,
ambassador to the
United Nations. Other pro-Israel advisers included Abe Fortas, associate justice of the
Court; Democratic Party fundraiser Abraham Feinberg; White House counsels
Leo White and Jake Jacobsen; White House
writers Richard Goodwin and Ben Wattenberg;
domestic affairs aide Larry Levinson; and John P. Roche, known as Johnson's
intellectual-in-residence and an avid supporter of Israel.
Everyone around me, without exception, was pro-Israel.
I did not "know," but could sense, that events of great portent were transpiring. I heard
rumors of CIA Director Richard Helms sending a warning to LBJ that the Israelis were about
to attack, and the
president getting word from Moscow that if the Israelis
attacked any Arab country, the Soviets would go to that nation's
I could see the comings and goings of Abe Fortas and Arthur Goldberg, and I knew that
Rostow, in particular, had close Israeli connections, and met frequently with Israeli
Embassy Minister Ephraim (Eppy)
On occasion I saw a strikingly attractive blonde woman who, I learned, was an ardent
of Israel and a woman of whom the president was fond. Her background sounded
like material from a spy novel. She was
born Mathilde Galland in 1927in Italy, where
she was reared as a Roman Catholic. Then, when her family returned to
birthplace in Switzerland, she became a Lutheran.
While a student in Geneva, she
fell in love with a young Bulgarian Jew, David Danon,
who had been brought up in Palestine and exiled by the British
for his association with the
Irgun Zvai Leumi, a Jewish terrorist group led by Menachem Begin. Danon was studying
to become a medical doctor, but spent most of his time recruiting and carrying out secret Irgun
throughout Western Europe.
In later interviews with former Time reporter Donald Neff, Mathilde
said that as a teenager
she saw Danon as a dashing and heroic figure, an activist dedicating his life to the founding
of a Jewish state in Palestine. He was a personal friend of the Stern Gang terrorists, led by
who killed British resident minister Lord Walter Moyne in Cairo during
World War II, and the Irgun terrorists who
blew up the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in
1946,with heavy loss of life. As bloody as these actions were, Mathilde
said, she saw them
as heroic. They represented the depth of the convictions of Danon and the Irgunists—
drew her to them.
Mathilde became so enamored of the Jewish struggle and of Danon's daring undercover
operations in Europe that she converted to Judaism and married Danon. Then she, too,
became an Irgun agent.
Neff, in his book entitled Warriors for Jerusalem: The Six Days That Changed
the Middle East, documents
Mathilde's role as a young "gun-runner" for the Jewish terrorist
group. "As a seemingly innocent petite
and pretty blonde out for a bicycle ride along Switzerland's
borders," wrote Neff, "she in reality was
taking messages and explosives
into neighboring France and Italy—to be passed on to the Irgunists.
years after the creation of Israel obviated the need for pretty blonde gunrunners,
Mathilde received a Ph.D. in genetics
at the University of Geneva in 1953.She and
Danon then moved to Israel, where she became a cancer researcher at the
Institute. After the birth of a daughter, she and Danon separated. While still at Weizmann,
she met and later married the rich—and 20 years her senior—Arthur Krim,
a motion picture executive who
became finance chairman for the Democratic National Committee.
American Jews such as Krim and Abraham
Feinberg—a New York banker and the first Jew
to become a prominent moneyraiser in presidential campaigns—were
by then bringing in
well over half of the Democratic Party's funds. Thus it was natural that such fund-raisers
become very important to many Democratic candidates—and
particularly to the leader of the Democratic Party,
Lyndon B. Johnson.
LBJ often invited the Krims to his Texas ranch. There also were many instances in which
Arthur and Mathilde were guests at the White House, and other times when, for many days
her husband—was a guest there. The Krims built a house
near the LBJ ranch known as Mathilde's house, and Johnson
often traveled there by helicopter.
Advice and Counsel LBJ Part 2
The Krims, as well as other Jewish Americans who were closely associated
advised and counseled him on the events leading up to the Six-Day War of June 1967.
On the Memorial
Day weekend in May 1967, Mathilde and her husband were guests at the
LBJ ranch. On arrival at the ranch, Johnson
learned that the Soviets had warned the U.S.
that if Israel attacked an Arab state, the Soviets would go to the aid
of that state.
The State Department was preparing a message for LBJ to send to Israel.
the draft message, Johnson got behind the wheel of his Lincoln Continental
and took Mathilde and Arthur Krim for a
drive over the hill country. They were at a neighbor's
house when an aide brought Johnson a message drafted by the
State Department for Israeli
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol. It relayed to Israel Moscow's warning that "if Israel
starts military action, the Soviet Union will extend help to the attacked party."
Eshkol of America's interest in Israel's safety, the draft message cautioned:
"It is essential that Israel not
take any preemptive military action and thereby make itself
responsible for the initiation of hostilities." The
president strengthened the warning by adding
two words so that the sentence read, "It is essential that Israel
JUST MUST NOT take any
preemptive military action. . ."
On June 3, Johnson traveled to New
York to deliver a speech at a Democratic Party
fund-raising dinner. He moved on to a $1,000-a-plate dinner dance,
sponsored by the
President's Club of New York, whose chairman was Arthur Krim. While at the table,
Abe Feinberg leaned over the shoulder of Mathilde Krim, seated next to Johnson,
and whispered: "Mr. President,
it [Israel's attack] can't be held any longer. It's going to be
within the next 24 hours."
June 4, Johnson went to the home of his close adviser and friend, Justice Abe Fortas.
The following day, June 5,
Rostow woke Johnson with a phone call at 4:30 a.m.
"War has broken out," Rostow said. The Israelis had attacked
Egypt and Syria.
Mathilde Krim was a guest at the White House and, before going to the Oval Office, and
apparently before waking Lady Bird or notifying anyone else, Johnson dropped by the
bedroom where Mathilde
was sleeping and gave her the news: "The war has started."
At 7:45 a.m., Johnson talked—for
the first time—on the hot line with Moscow. Soviet Premier
Aleksi Kosygin expressed the hope that the United
States would restrain Israel. Both leaders
vowed to work for a cease-fire.
On that day—June
5, 1967—I walked the White House corridors as the telephone lines and
news tickers recorded developments of
the first morning of the war that would change the
Middle East. I learned that in the war's first hours, Israeli
planes had destroyed the air
forces of both Egypt and Syria on the ground.
Glee LBJ Part 3
U.S. officials in a State Department Operations Room briefing could not conceal their
glee over Israel's successes.
With a wide smile, Eugene Rostow said,
"Gentlemen, gentlemen, do not forget that we are neutral in word, thought
At the State Department's noon briefing on June 5, press spokesman Robert J. McCloskey
repeated those words for reporters. (Since the U.S. was not neutral but totally supportive of
this statement would need—over the next several weeks—endless clarification.)
Also on June
5, Arthur Krim wrote a memo to the president saying: "Many arms shipments
are packed and ready to go to Israel,
but are being held up. It would be helpful
if these could be released." Johnson got the shipments on their way.
Rostow, in a memo to the president, referred to the results of Israel's surprise attack
on Egypt and Syria as "the
first day's turkey shoot." On June 6, in another memo to the president,
Walt Rostow recommended that the Israelis
not be forced to withdraw from the
territories they had seized—short of peace treaties with the Arab states.
the Israelis go fast enough and the Soviets get worried enough," he wrote, "a simple
cease-fire might be
the best answer. This would mean that we could use the de facto
situation on the ground to try to negotiate not a
return to armistice lines but a definitive
peace in the Middle East."
Mathilde Krim, still
a guest in the White House, left for meetings in New York. Before departing,
however, she wrote out a statement supportive
of Israel which she asked the president to deliver
"verbatim to the American people." Johnson was sufficiently
impressed with her comments
to, later in the day, read some of them to Secretary of State Dean Rusk. But the
president did not, as she had asked, read them to the American people.
Jordan, treaty-bound to come to
the aid of Egypt and Syria if either were attacked, had
done so and, on June 7, Israel captured the Old City of Jerusalem.
Also on June 7,
Wattenberg and Levinson wrote in a memo to Johnson that the U.N. might attempt
Israel down the river."
They urged LBJ to support Israel's claim to the territories seized militarily.
They referred to
McCloskey's statement that the U.S. was neutral, suggesting LBJ issue a statement affirming
total support for Israel which, they said, might stop American Jews from meeting in Lafayette Square
to protest the
While Johnson never minded getting pro-Israel advice from such close
friends as Mathilde
Krim or Abe Fortas, he apparently resented advice from relatively minor White House
such as Wattenberg and Levinson. Seeing Levinson he stormed:
"You Zionist dupe! You and Wattenberg
are Zionist dupes in the White House! Why can't
you see I'm doing all I can for Israel! That's what you should be
telling people when they
ask for a message from the president for their rally." As LBJ abruptly stormed off,
Levinson reports, he stood there, "shaken to the marrow of my bones."
Meanwhile, on the night
of June 7, the USS Liberty , a Navy "ferret" ship equipped to
monitor electronic communications, had approached within sight
of the Gaza Strip so
the National Security Agency personnel aboard could intercept the military communications
jamming the airwaves. The president retired at 11:30 p.m., but White House logs reported
that at one minute to midnight
he got a call from Mathilde Krim, still in New York.
By June 8, despite U.S. and Soviet demands for a
cease-fire, the Israelis were planning one
more attack to take Syria's Golan Heights. Perhaps to prevent U.S. intelligence
of their plan, despite Syria's acceptance of the cease-fire, the Israelis dispatched planes
the USS Liberty. One roared over the Liberty so closely that the portholes of the aircraft's
cameras were clearly visible. Lieutenant James M. Ennes,
deck officer, saw on its wings Israel's insignia, the Star
The Liberty Assault LBJ Part 4
Ennes glanced at the U.S. flag atop his ship's tall mast. If he
could see the Israeli pilots
in their cockpits, he reasoned, the pilots could certainly see the large U.S. flag.
It was not
long after the last of several such Israeli reconnaissance flights, however, that an Israeli
swooped down and fired rockets directly at The Liberty. Rocket fragments and
30mm bullets punched through
the heavy deck plating—and through the flesh of the stunned
crewmen. Then more planes—with cannon and
napalm—turned the Liberty into
a floating hell of flames and screaming men.
Israeli attacks killed 34 Americans and wounded 171. The ship was partly flooded
when an Israeli torpedo boat hit
the U.S. ship with a torpedo below the water line.
Another machine-gunned the ship's life rafts when the crew tried
to launch them.
Only by a miracle did The Liberty remain afloat. But its threat to Israel's plans
The next day, June 9, Israeli forces attacked and captured the Golan Heights.
On Saturday, June
10, the war's sixth day, Israel agreed to a cease-fire.
It was Rostow who first notified Johnson of the
assault on the Liberty. Asked who did it,
Rostow said he did not know. Later the Israelis said they had done
it, by mistake.
Johnson sent an immediate report to Kosygin that the Israelis had torpedoed a U.S. ship.
Thus the Kremlin now knew about the Israeli attack, but the American people did not.
From the beginning, the
Johnson administration covered it up. Surviving crew members
were separated from each other and the Navy was ordered
to make certain that no survivor
talked with any reporter—or to anyone else—about the assault on the USS Liberty .
It went virtually unnoticed. Not only the crew of the USS Liberty , but all Americans were
victims. Johnson and most of those who entered and left the Oval Office were oriented
toward Israel. For that matter, I too, was ready and eager to believe in 1967 that the Arabs,
not the Israelis,
had started the war and that the bombing raid on the USS Liberty was not
intentional, but a mistake.
there can be no moral justification for the White House cover-up orders to the Navy
after the assault on the Liberty,
from hindsight Johnson's political motivation is obvious.
It was the same motivation that led him subsequently
to listen to the Jewish friends and
advisers who urged him not to put any pressure on the Israelis to relinquish
had seized in the Six-Day War.
In 1967, President Johnson felt he needed all the
support he could get to I 'win" in Vietnam.
Many American Jews were liberals outspokenly opposed to the war
there. Johnson was
told if he gave all out support to Israel—which would include ignoring the Israeli attack
on the Libertyinfluential Jewish Americans would stop opposing his Vietnam policies.
In a memo
to the president, Wattenberg, whose parents had moved to the U. S. from Palestine
and who was known as a strong supporter
of the Jewish state, said flatly that if the president
came out with strong support for Israel, he would win American
Jewish support for the war in
Vietnam. Many American Jewish leaders are "doves" on Vietnam, Wattenberg wrote,
on a war with Arab states.
A "Bonus" for Johnson
LBJ Part 5
"You stand to be cheered now by those (American Jewish leaders) who were jeering
last week," Wattenberg wrote the president. He added that the Mideast crisis could be
bonus" for Johnson. All-out support of Israel, he predicted, would "help turn
'the other war'—the domestic dissatisfaction about Vietnam."
given by the American Jewish leaders "was welcome to the president,"
as reporter Donald
Neff observed, when at every turn he was being
attacked by critics, particularly in the media,
of his Vietnam policy.
I was, at the time, a typical American. I was convinced back
then that the Arabs had
started the war and deserved what they got. I didn't try to reason
how, if the Arabs had
started the war, they were surprised with their air forces on the ground
and how it was
that Israel so easily seized all of Palestine, including the rest of Jerusalem.
Instead, like millions of Americans, I was thrilled by the might of "little Israel."
Yet, despite the euphoria around me, what I saw in the White House planted questions in
mind. As Americans we had just passed through a dangerous Middle East conflict that
to explode into World War III. There were two parties to the conflict, Arabs and
Jews. But for
weeks on end I had seen only one set of advisers who could call or see
Johnson whenever they
pleased. The Arabs had no voice, no representation,
no access, whatsoever.
It was only later that I came to reflect on how America, which devoted so much of the
of its "best and brightest" to the problem of Vietnam, had in 1967 quite unwittingly
stumbled into a Middle East quagmire that, long after the fall of Saigon, would continue
enmesh U.S. soldiers and diplomats, and project an image of double
standards and insincerity
onto U.S. diplomacy all over the world.
more than his failed policies in Vietnam, the Middle East policies that LBJ allowed
to fall into place in the June
1967 war would remain to haunt the U.S. for decades to come.

Jewish President Lyndon Johnson?
– an update!!
A few months ago, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from
US president Lyndon Johnson’s White House office showed LBJ’s “personal and often
emotional connection to Israel.” The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson
presidency (1963-1969), “the United States became Israel’s chief
diplomatic ally and
primary arms supplier.”
But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson’s actions on
behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli
can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know
actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust
– actions that could
have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed,
the title of “Righteous Gentile”
is certainly appropriate in the
case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated
Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that
it will honor Johnson.
Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving
as a young congressman in 1938
and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to
Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently
illegal immigration of hundreds of
Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas….
A key resource for uncovering
LBJ’s pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral
thesis by University
of Texas student Louis Gomolak, “Prologue: LBJ’s Foreign Affairs
Background, 1908-1948.” Johnson’s activities were confirmed by other historians
in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.
Research into Johnson’s personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish
people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a
member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had
nurtured LBJ’s commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. As young boy, Lyndon watched
his politically active grandfather “Big Sam” and father “Little Sam” seek clemency for Leo
the Jewish victim of a blood libel in Atlanta. Frank was lynched
by a mob in 1915, and the
Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons.
The Johnsons later told friends that
Lyndon’s family hid in their cellar
while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on
their porch in case
of KKK attacks. Johnson’s speech writer later stated, “Johnson often
Leo Frank’s lynching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism.”
in 1934 – four years before Chamberlain’s Munich sellout to Hitler – Johnson was
keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, ‘Nazism:
An Assault on Civilization’, to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor –
later known as “Lady Bird” Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.
FIVE DAYS after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the “Dixiecrats” and
immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews
from Lithuania and Poland.
In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish
musician who was about to be
deported from the United States. With an element
of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the
US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency
permit. Erich Leinsdorf,
the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ
for saving his live.
That same year, LBJ warned Jewish friend, Jim Novy,
that European Jews faced annihilation.
“Get as many Jewish people as possible
out of Germany and Poland,” were Johnson’s instructions.
Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get
42 Jews out of Warsaw. But that wasn’t enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood,
Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle “hundreds of
Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports
and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries. Johnson smuggled
boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth
Administration. Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more.”
During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war
bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very “substantial sum for
arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine.” One source cited by
the historian reports
that “Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping
heavy crates labeled ‘Texas Grapefruit’
– but containing arms
– to Jewish underground ‘freedom fighters’ in Palestine.”
ON JUNE 4, 1945, Johnson visited
Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled
that when her husband
returned home, “he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized, and
with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen.”
A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration’s
attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. “The indefatigable
Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration,” wrote I.L. “Si”
Kenen, the head
of AIPAC at the time. As Senate majority leader, Johnson
consistently blocked the anti-Israel
initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William
Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee. Among Johnson’s
closest advisers during this period were several strong
including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between
Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary
Johnson’s concern for the Jewish people continued
through his presidency. Soon after
taking office in the aftermath of John F.
Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Johnson told
an Israeli diplomat, “You
have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one.”
Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication
of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to
“We can’t thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the
days of Hitler.” Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: “Person after
person plucked at my sleeve and said, ‘I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t
for him. He helped
me get out.'” Lady Bird elaborated, “Jews had
been woven into the warp and woof of all
The PRELUDE to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State
Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy
despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After
the war he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: “If a single act of folly was more responsible
for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision
[by Egypt that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo].”
Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel,
specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all
vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda
described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol’s successful appeal for these weapons
on a visit to the LBJ ranch. Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure
it also won the peace. “I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little
Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador
to the United
Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently
Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked
Johnson at the Glassboro
Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80
million Arabs and only three million
Israelis. “Because it is a right
thing to do,” responded the straight-shooting Texan.
of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson’s scrutiny.
call for “secure and recognized boundaries” was critical. The American and British
drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In
September 1968, Johnson explained, “We are not the ones to say where other nations
should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear,
however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must
be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to
by the neighbors involved.” Goldberg later noted, “Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem,
and this omission was deliberate.” This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson’s
stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. “I
say for Johnson,” Goldberg stated. “He gave me great personal
Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn
College, recently wrote in The
New York Sun, Johnson’s policies stemmed
more from personal concerns – his friendship
with leading Zionists, his
belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security
conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His
concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense
had insufficiently appreciated Israel’s diplomatic or military needs.”
President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical
context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support,
the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between
the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.
Lyndon Johnson’s maternal ancestors, the Huffmans,
apparently migrated to Frederick,
Maryland from Germany sometime in the mid-eighteenth
century. Later they moved to
Bourbon, Kentucky and eventually settled
in Texas in the mid-to-late nineteenth century.
According to Jewish law, if a person’s mother is Jewish, then that person is automatically
Jewish, regardless of the father’s ethnicity or religion. The facts indicate that both
of Lyndon Johnson’s great-grandparents, on the maternal side, were Jewish.
These were the grandparents of Lyndon’s mother, Rebecca Baines. Their names were
John S. Huffman and Mary Elizabeth Perrin. John Huffman’s mother
Suzanne Ament, a common Jewish name. Perrin is also a common Jewish name.
Huffman and Perrin had a daughter, Ruth Ament Huffman, who married Joseph Baines and
together they had a daughter, Rebekah Baines, Lyndon Johnson’s mother. The line of
Jewish mothers can be traced back three generations in Lyndon Johnson’s family tree.
There is little doubt that he was Jewish.

the Israeli forces responsible for the attack as
“murderous bastards.” It was our shared belief,
based on the documentary evidence and testimony

Following the conclusion of the Court of Inquiry,
Admiral Kidd and I remained in contact. Though
we never spoke of the attack in public, we did
discuss it between
ourselves, on occasion. Every
time we discussed the attack, Admiral Kidd was
adamant that it was a deliberate, planned
an American ship.
In 1990, I received a telephone call from
Cristol, who wanted to interview me concerning
the functioning of the Court of Inquiry. I told him
I would not speak to him on that subject and
prepared to hang up the telephone. Cristol then
began asking me about
my personal background
and other, non-Court of Inquiry related matters. I
endeavored to answer these questions and
extricate myself from the conversation. Cristol
continued to return to the subject of the Court of
which I refused to discuss with him.
Finally, I suggested that he contact Admiral Kidd
and ask him about the Court
Shortly after my conversation with Cristol, I
received a telephone call from Admiral Kidd,
about Cristol and what he was up to. The
Admiral spoke of Cristol in disparaging terms and
even opined that “Cristol
must be an Israeli agent.”
I don’t know if he meant that literally or it was his
way of expressing his
disgust for Cristol’s highly
partisan, pro-Israeli approach to questions
involving the USS LIBERTY.
At no time did I ever hear Admiral Kidd speak of
Cristol other than in highly disparaging

Admiral Kidd to be utterly incredible.
I also find it
impossible to believe the statements he attributes
to Admiral Kidd, concerning the attack on the
Several years later, I received a letter from Cristol
that contained what he purported to be his notes of
our prior conversation. These “notes” were grossly
incorrect and bore no resemblance in reality to that
discussion. I find it hard to believe that these
were the product of a mistake, rather than
an attempt to deceive. I informed Cristol that I
disagreed with his recollection
of our conversation
and that he was wrong. Cristol made several
attempts to arrange for the two of us to meet in
person and talk but I always found ways to avoid
doing this. I did not wish to meet with Cristol as
we had nothing
in common and I did not trust him.
Contrary to the misinformation presented by
Cristol and others, it is important
for the American
people to know that it is clear that Israel is
responsible for deliberately attacking an American
ship and murdering American sailors, whose

“There were occasional setbacks in my efforts to round
my Navy profile. My reputation was not enhanced
when I knocked down some power

low over southern Spain. My daredevil clowning had cut
off electricity to a great many Spanish homes and created

“Wet starting” involves deliberately dumping fuel into
the afterburner of a jet engine before starting causing a
flame to shoot out from the tail of an aircraft when

jets that McCain’s squadron

Whitney J-52-P-408A engines. And although a “wet

the fact that McCain’s aircraft was parked on

First we must ask why McCain would vote against the
HR 3603 Truth Accountability Bill. The bill was
by Senator Bob Dornan (R-Ca.) and Senator
Bob Smith (R-N.H.). The purpose of the
bill was to
get any and all records of POWs in Vietnam, Korea, and
anywhere else to determine if any POWs were still alive
The House passed the bill by a vote of
401 to 0, but when
it got to the Senate for a vote, McCain was the only one
that blocked the bill. McCain did not want any scrutiny
to his own POW records that he had permanently
sealed for very good reasons.
McCain does not want the general public to know how
cooperative he was with his North Vietnamese captors.

interviews with the North Vietnamese news service. In
these interviews he stated that America’s principal targets

McCain has freely admitted in his autobiography, Faith of
Fathers, that he felt disgraced and ashamed of himself
for making a propaganda
tape for the North Vietnamese

felt faithless and couldn’t

There were 13 low level reconnaissance flights over the ship that morning.
available if you wish
to see them. The USS Liberty ALWAYS flew a US flag on the main
mast while she was under weigh. The ship markings were clearly visible with the naked eye
at the distance of half a mile of more. Again, pictures are available if
you would like to see
them. Voice intercepts
made by NSA resources of the pilot chatter indicate that they saw
the flag and the ship's markings and knew that the subject ship was an AMERICAN
ship of some sort.
This was in NO WAY, SHAPE, or FORM an accident. The IDF intended to sink the
USS Liberty with ALL hands on board. However, the US Navy was too good for
to kill off so easily."
Ronald Kukal: "To add to what JP has said. First of all we
have all been awarded our medals.
Combat Action Ribbon,
Purple Heart, ect. You do not award medals to men who have been
exposed to so called Friendly Fire. There are about 35 to 40 VIP's of that era who have left
statements about this attack, and none of them say it was friendly fire. The one I like best
comes form former Sec of State Dean Rusk who in his
book, "As I Saw It" said, " I never
believed the Israeli excuse, I didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now". Admiral Thomas
Moorer who was the Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a personal friend of mine said you
don't have accidents from friendly fire when you attack over and over and over again
for two hours. The USS Liberty is the most decorated ship since WWII, and those decorations
didn't come from friendly fire. As the POIC of body recovery and identification I can tell you
I was there. I will bring up more people to
testify if you want. I got them standing in line."

MURDERED JUNE 8 1967!"
Phillip Tourney To Mr. Zionist
Doug Martin, collaborator and cover-up artist for the Zionist
state of Israel. You are as guilty of murder as the blood thirsty thugs, the Israelis, who
viciously murdered 34 of my crew mates and wounded 174 others, including myself.
On June 8, 1967, our ship, the USS LIBERTY, was clearly marked and flying the American
flag, as always. We were identified by our murderers as an American ship, the USS
LIBERTY in international waters doing what our government ordered us to do. Over
800 canon and rocket holes were in our ship, along with over 5000 armor piercing bullets.
Napalm was burning us up and we had a 40' x 40' hole in our starboard side when one
of five torpedoes hit us in the communications area of the ship. Twenty five national security
agency personnel were instantly blown to bits. These
were the most trusted men in the
armed forces of
the United States of America working directly for the national security
In this 2 hour blood bath that lasted as long as the attack on Pearl Harbor, help
was denied us by the president of the United States himself, recalling rescue aircraft that
were on their way to help us, only 15 minutes away. We were set up to be murdered by
our own government and the hit men were the blood thirsty Israelis. We were ordered
by Admiral Isaac Kidd never to speak about this act of war and war crimes committed
against the crew of the USS LIBERTY as well as the citizens of the United States of America.
You, Sir, are disgusting, an un-American, and an Israeli apologist, just as our bought and
paid for congress are who get on their knees and are nothing more than boot lickers to
their masters in Tel Aviv. The survivors, their families, and friends of this dispicable cover
up will not allow scum like you to disrespect our
fallen heros from our gallant crew of
the USS LIBERTY
I was on June 8& 9th 1967. when we went to General quarters we were told that the
Liberty was under attack by unknown air and naval forces. Every account states that
there were no markings on the airplanes. The ship's communications were jammed.
Now 'splain to me that the Egyptians had been at war for three days before the attack
so they didn't need to hide their identity from them and the Russians were trying to cover
their own asses ( the America told them if they kept screwing around they might live to
regret it. ) The next day, from the flight deck of the USS America, as the Liberty became
visible on the horizon the flag's white stripes looked like tiny strobes as the wind moved
and the sun hit them. that was some 20mi away. Covered with soot and blood her
name and numbers still proudly proclaimed I AM AMERICAN
Fif**** years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached
survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete)
McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the
Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the
American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base,
where he was arrested.
Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors
that he was in an Israeli
war room where he heard that pilot's radio report. The attacking pilots and
everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major
said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.
The pilot's protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy
in Lebanon. Then-U.S.
Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter
told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered
to submit to further questioning by authorities.
Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing
these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery.
Key members of the Lyndon Johnson administration
have long agreed that this attack was
Perhaps most outspoken is former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Thomas Moorer. "I can never accept the claim that this was a mistaken attack, "
he insists. Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk is equally outspoken, calling the attack
deliberate in press and radio interviews. Similarly strong language comes from top leaders
of the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency (some of whose personnel
were among the victims), National Security Council, and from presidential
advisers such as Clark Clifford, Joseph Califano and Lucius Battle.
top-secret analysis of Israel's excuse conducted by the Department of
State found Israel's story to be untrue.
Yet Israel and its defenders
continue to stand by their claim that the attack was a "tragic accident"
which Israel mistook the most modern electronic surveillance vessel in the
a rusted-out 40-year-old Egyptian horse transport. Despite the
evidence, no U.S. administration has never
found the courage to defy the
Israeli lobby by publicly demanding a proper accounting from Israel.
The pilot's protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy
in Lebanon. Then-U.S.
Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter
told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert
and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities.
Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing
these first-person accounts
of Israeli treachery.
US military rank and file are waking up to the truth that Israel has been attacking
our country under false flag operations from The Lavon Affair to the USS Liberty to 9/11
and Benghazi with traitors who infiltrated our government issuing stand down orders.
Well yesterday, Obama described 9/11 as 'small evil minds conspiring' if people are conspiring
it means they are creating a conspiracy. Words in presidential speeches are chosen with
care and this is a clear message that current leadership is aware of Israeli tactics of murder,
lies, and theft. May the days to justice for the USS Liberty and 9/11 victims be few.
Testimonial of Jerry Hamby (Aboard the USS America on
June 7th 1967)
I entered the Navy June 5th 1964, after graduating from high school. I attended basic at Great
Lakes training center North Chicago . After basic I went to Navy Electronics class A school at Great Lakes and went through
the Radar section of the equipment phase. After graduating from there I was assigned to the USS AMERICA, CVA-66, our
newest aircraft carrier which was home ported in Norfolk Va. After a few short cruises to the Caribbean and the area
around St Thomas etc, we came back and were deployed to the Mediterranean Sea ( Navy's 6th fleet) for 9 months.
During this cruise, I was flown
back to the states to attend the AN/SPN-10 air traffic control radar school at Glynco NAS , Ga. After graduating
from this school and returning to the ship, this was my primary job assignment.
this cruise we returned to the states and after a few months we again were deployed to the 6th fleet. This cruise was for
8 months and this is where we were when the 6 day war broke out and on June the 8th we were alerted to a distress call from
one of our ships saying "we are being attacked, send assistance". The rest is history.
I was assigned to the SPN-10 aircraft landing radar system and my battle station was in
the equipment rooms for this radar that were located in the rear of the island. Our equipment rooms were on the 05 and 06
levels which are two and three decks above the flight deck.
This was the only equipment located in the rear most section of the
island and there was nothing on the deck below us or the deck above us. One level up was access to the outside where
there was a catwalk that ran on both sides and the rear of the island. You could walk around to the outboard side or to the
inboard side that gave the full view of the rear 2/3rds of the flight deck. This is where I spent many hours when not needed
for watch or equipment work.
I was here when I first heard of the attack on "one of our ships".
It was probably 15 minutes
or so before we got more information of the ship under attack.
The air wing had recently launched around 18 aircraft or so for their normal air operations.
The next thing I heard was the Air Boss announcing that "we have
received orders to recover all aircraft and stand by for further instructions". I watched them recover these aircraft
and with much activity within probably 20 minutes or so EVERY AIRCRAFT that could be, was fully armed and ready for combat.
There were 4 Phantom Fighters
that were fully armed that were launched to provide screen protection for the ship.
Over the next hour or so there were medical personnel along with stacks
of medical supplies, stretchers etc brought up to the flight deck just below where I was during the whole time.
I will never forget that day as the "day they took the safety off". It seemed
that we were going to war somewhere but we were not sure where or with whom.
day we did come along side the Liberty along with the
destroyer, USS DAVIS DD 937. All three of our ships were dead in
the water "stopped". With our helicopter carrying personnel and medical supplies between ships.
The rest is pretty much burned into memory, as I will never forget what I saw. The very fact that
this ship could float with the large 30-40 foot hole in the side along with all the damage due to rockets, machine gun fire
and napalm that burned much of the bridge, was nothing less that a miracle.
said that this attack was "a mistake" which is surely a lie for one thing the ship was flying an American flag,
the weather was clear, this was midday local time and the side numbers are large enough to be seen clearly from a long distance.
These numbers may be seen in any of the photos of the ship. It also had the name " Liberty " across the stern. Also,
this would be the longest mistaken attack in history of naval warfare.
of the injured and dead were brought over to our medical facilities and we did get to talk with a few of them over the next
few days. We had a memorial service on the flight deck next day or so with those who could make it were there many in
wheel chairs, on crutches etc.
of the crew told us that the gunners were wounded or killed before they could get to the four 50 cal machine gun stations
on the ship. These guns were no match for the tremendous fire power that was that this ship received.
While I have done much research on this attack and have many files from then (which can't be believed
for the most part) and many that have come available in the last few years, along with the voice recordings of President Johnson
saying that "I want that GD ship on the bottom". I find this later information very disturbing that our president
would willingly sacrifice an American ship with all hands so that he could initiate another war.

USS LIBERTY SURVIVING CREWMAN
HAS DIED (Monday Aug. 11th):
Visalian receives Silver Star medal (Terry Halbardier)
May 27, 2009
The spy ship USS Liberty
was sailing off the coast of Egypt on June 8, 1967, under clear skies when, without warning, Israeli military aircraft began
strafing the ship with 20-caliber rounds, sending shrapnel everywhere and demolishing virtually every antenna on the ship.
It was the fourth day of the Six-Day War between Israel and neighboring Arab states.
The strafing lasted about an hour, then a torpedo hit the ship's right side, killing 26 men. Electronics technician
Terry Halbardier, 23, was hit by shrapnel in both arms, body and left leg, but he kept going.
Forty-two years after the USS Liberty was attacked by Israel, electronics technician James Halbardier was awarded
a Silver Star by the Navy.
A 24-foot whip antenna on the ship's left side toward
the rear had somehow escaped damage, but the cable connecting it to a transmitter was destroyed. Halbardier ordered a reel
of cable. With planes still strafing the ship, he ran onto the deck and attached new wire to the antenna so a radioman could
send out a Mayday distress signal to the U.S. Sixth Fleet, which also was in the Mediterranean Sea.
The attack finally ended -- but 34 were dead and 171 wounded out of 294 officers and enlisted crew members.
Halbardier's heroism under fire 42 years ago earned him a Silver Star -- the third most prestigious medal after
the Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross. The medal was finally awarded to him Wednesday in Visalia.
"I may be the lucky sailor to wear this, but it took us all that day," Halbardier said after Rep. Devin
Nunes pinned the medal on him. "I didn't do anything more than anyone else."
Halbardier's "conspicuous gallantry" under fire "were instrumental in saving the ship and hundreds of lives,"
according to the citation signed by the Secretary of the Navy. Shipmates say they believe that if the antenna hadn't been
fixed and the Mayday sent by Morse code, the ship would have been sunk.
day, the attack remains controversial. Israel apologized and said the Liberty had been mistaken for an Egyptian ship. It
But the crew of Liberty remains convinced Israel meant to sink
the ship. Theories abound as to why.
Ray McGovern, a retired CIA analyst who attended
Wednesday's Silver Star ceremony and has had a longtime interest in the Liberty attack, said there's speculation that Israeli
didn't want the U.S. electronic surveillance spy ship listening in on Israeli military communications as it was about to
take the Golan Heights. Another is that Egypt could have been easily blamed for a sunken ship with no survivors, giving the
U.S. a pretext to attack Cairo and kill President Nasser.
Whatever the case, the
Mayday was answered by the USS Saratoga, which sent helicopters to fight off the Liberty's attackers -- only to recall them
before they arrived. Officials said Israel by then had communicated an apology to the United States. Halbardier said Liberty
crew members are suspicious of the official Navy investigation but believe the Mayday caused a chain of events that "forced
Israel to back off."
At any rate, after the Liberty limped into Malta for
repairs, an admiral gathered the remaining crew members and warned them not to talk to reporters, tell drinking buddies
at bars about it, wear clothing with Liberty markings on shore leave or even tell their wives what happened, Halbardier
told reporters Wednesday. As a low-ranking crew member, he said, the warning was taken seriously.
So he kept quiet. He left the Navy in 1970 and became a real estate investor, first in Texas and then later after
moving to Visalia. But 20 years ago, he started going to reunions. A few years ago, two ex-officers from the Liberty talked
him into seeking a commendation for repairing the antenna. Nunes' office made the official request, and the officers wrote
letters explaining what Halbardier did that day.
Halbardier, now 65, said he thought
he might get a letter of commendation, or maybe a Bronze Star. He never thought he'd get the Silver Star. "I'm stoked,"
Halbardier said. "This is an extreme honor for me."
The wording in the
official citation caught the attention of Halbardier and of David Pageler of Westminster, a fellow former crew member.
They noted that all previous citations for Liberty crew members have never mentioned Israel by name, just "attack
by enemy aircraft." This one specifically states: "The USS Liberty was attacked by Israeli aircraft and motor torpedo
boats in the East Mediterranean Sea on the fourth day of the Six Day War."
"We need another investigation" of the Liberty incident, Halbardier said: "It's not going to happen in our
lifetime, but the truth will someday come out."
"The Flag got
in the way!"
"It's not what's true about Americans, it's
what's true about Washington; what's
true about the government in Israel;
and what's true about Israel and
my own government together!"
"That's the torpedo that hit the USS Liberty!"

Fifty Years Of Occupation
By Chuck Baldwin
February 8, 2018
On TheIntercept.com website, Mehdi Hasan had
the courage to write what should have been written 50 years ago. Hasan writes, “Fifty years ago, between June 5 and
June 10, 1967, Israel invaded and occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and the Golan Heights. The Six-Day
War, as it would later be dubbed, saw the Jewish David inflict a humiliating defeat on the Arab Goliath, personified perhaps
by Gamal Abdel Nasser’s Egypt.
“‘The existence of the Israeli state hung by a thread,’
the country’s prime minister, Levi Eshkol, claimed two days after the war was over, ‘but the hopes of the Arab
leaders to annihilate Israel were dashed.’ Genocide, went the argument, had been prevented; another Holocaust of the
“There is, however, a problem with this argument: It is complete fiction, a self-serving fantasy constructed
after the event to justify a war of aggression and conquest. Don’t take my word for it: ‘The thesis according
to which the danger of genocide hung over us in June 1967, and according to which Israel was fighting for her very physical
survival, was nothing but a bluff which was born and bred after the war,’ declared Gen. Matituahu Peled, chief of
logistical command during the war and one of 12 members of Israel’s General Staff, in March 1972.
year earlier, Mordechai Bentov, a member of the wartime government and one of 37 people to sign Israel’s Declaration
of Independence, had made a similar admission. ‘This whole story about the threat of extermination was totally contrived,
and then elaborated upon, a posteriori, to justify the annexation of new Arab territories,’ he said in April 1971.
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, former terrorist and darling of the Israeli far right, conceded in a speech in August
1982 that ‘in June 1967 we had a choice. The Egyptian army concentrations in the Sinai approaches did not prove that
Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.’”
let’s not forget: Israel not only decided to attack Nasser, but it also decided to attack the USS Liberty (with unmarked
aircraft), killing 34 American Sailors and Marines—trying to make it look like Egypt attacked our ship, in the hopes
that America would jump into the war on Israel’s side. I am personally convinced that President Lyndon Johnson and
Defense Secretary Robert McNamara conspired with Israel to carry out this attack—even going so far as ordering U.S.
jets that were responding to the Liberty’s distress calls to turn around and leave the ship to sink. Only an act of
God kept that ship afloat. No one was supposed to survive to tell what really happened. But there were survivors. The survivors
were ordered to keep silent about the attack, but, thankfully, several brave crew members have spent their lives trying to
tell the American people the truth about Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty.
One of those survivors has
become a friend of mine—a Christian man who watches my messages at Liberty Fellowship and follows this national column.
His name is Ron Kukal. He recently spoke at Liberty Fellowship. More importantly, he co-authored a tell-all book about the
attack on the USS Liberty. The book is entitled “Remember The LIBERTY!” And I am proud to be a distributor of
this incredible book. I urge readers to order copies for themselves and for as many friends as they can. Along with the
assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, the seizure of the USS Pueblo in 1968, and the 9/11/01 attacks, Israel’s
attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 is one of the most egregious examples of a national cover-up that has ever taken place
in this country.
Order the blockbuster book “Remember The LIBERTY!” here:
Remember The LIBERTY!
Here is the service at Liberty Fellowship in which Ron Kukal spoke:
Liberty Fellowship: Your Faith Is Spread Abroad
And here is an interview I had with Ron on the 50th Anniversary of the Liberty attack:
My Interview With A USS Liberty Survivor
Hasan continues: “The reverberations of that attack are still being felt in the Middle East today.
Few modern conflicts have had as deep and long-lasting an impact as the Six-Day War. As U.S. academic and activist Thomas
Reifer has observed, it sounded the ‘death knell of pan-Arab nationalism, the rise of political Islam … a more
independent Palestinian nationalism’ and ‘Israel’s emergence as a U.S. strategic asset, with the United
States sending billions of dollars … in a strategic partnership unequalled in world history.’
all else, the war, welcomed by the London Daily Telegraph in 1967 as ‘the triumph of the civilized,’ forced
another 300,000 Palestinians from their homes and ushered in a brutal military occupation for the million-odd Palestinians
“The conflict itself may have lasted only six days, but the occupation that followed is now entering
its sixth decade — the longest military occupation in the world. Apologists for Israel often deny that it is an occupation
and say the Occupied Territories are merely ‘disputed,’ a disingenuous claim belied by Israel’s own Supreme
Court, which ruled in 2005 that the West Bank is ‘held by the State of Israel in belligerent occupation.’
long years of occupation; of dispossession and ethnic cleansing; of house demolitions and night curfews; of checkpoints,
walls, and permits.
“Fifty years of bombings and blockades; of air raids and night raids; of ‘targeted killings’
and ‘human shields’; of tortured Palestinian kids.
“Fifty years of racial discrimination and ethnic
prejudice; of a ‘separate but unequal’ two-tier justice system for Palestinians and Israelis; of military courts
and ‘administrative detention.’
“Fifty years of humiliation and subjugation; of pregnant Palestinian
women giving birth at checkpoints; of Palestinian cancer patients denied access to radiation therapy; of Palestinian footballers
prevented from reaching their matches.
“Fifty years of pointless negotiations and failed peace plans:
Allon, Rogers, Fahd, Fez, Reagan, Madrid, Oslo, Wye River, Camp David, Taba, Red Sea, Annapolis. What did they deliver for
the occupied Palestinians? Aside from settlements, settlements, and more settlements? Consider: In 1992, a year before the
Oslo peace process began, West Bank settlements covered 77 kilometers and housed 248,000 Israeli settlers. By 2016, those
settlements covered 197 kilometers and the number of settlers living in them had more than tripled to 763,000.”
concluded: “It wasn’t just the 1967 war that was launched on a lie; so too was the occupation that began after
it. It was never supposed to be temporary, nor were the Palestinians ever supposed to get their land back. If Israel had
planned to withdraw from the Occupied Territories, as some of its supporters suggest, then why was the first settlement in
the West Bank, Kfar Etzion, established less than four months after the Six-Day War, in defiance of ‘top-secret’
advice from the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s legal adviser that ‘civilian settlement’ in the territories
would contravene ‘the explicit provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention’? Why has it revoked the residency
rights of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from Gaza and the West Bank over the past 50 years? Why has the Jewish state
spent the past five decades exploiting the charade of a ‘peace process’ to gobble up more Palestinian land and
build more illegal settlements? The truth is that the Jewish state, from the very beginning, ‘used negotiations as
a smokescreen to advance its colonial project,’ to borrow a line from imprisoned Palestinian militant and activist
Marwan Barghouti. Fifty years on, it is time for both the Palestinian leadership and the international community to stop
“The legendary Israeli general and Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, who was one of
the architects of Israel’s victory in 1967 and was adamant that the country should hold onto the territories it had
seized, best summed up the cynical attitude of Israeli governments of both right and left over the past five decades. ‘The
only peace negotiations,’ pronounced Dayan, when asked about the possibility of a peace deal with the Palestinians
in November 1970, ‘are those where we settle the land and we build, and we settle, and from time to time we go to
See Mehdi Hasan’s report here:
A 50-Year Occupation: Israel’s Six-Day War Started With A Lie
Of course, Israel would have never gotten by with these lies and murders—much
less the 50 years of horrific occupation that have followed—except that America’s Christians have been hoodwinked
into believing that the Rothschild Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy; that the
Zionists in Israel are “God’s chosen people”; and that the land of Palestine (extending to the boundaries
of Old Testament Israel under kings David and Solomon) has been given to Rothschild’s Israel by God. Therefore, they
believe anything Israel does—no matter how evil and murderous it is (including murdering 34 American servicemen)—is
sanctioned by God, and Christians must support it.

to the modern Zionist State of Israel has created a political and military monster that is devouring the entire planet.
Israel’s military invasion of Egypt (including the attack against the USS Liberty) should have awakened the Christian
world to the diabolical plans and purposes of Zionism, but instead it enveloped the eyes of the Christian world with the
darkest of blindfolds.
Millions of Christians became Zionists in 1967.
I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard well-meaning Christians say, “The modern State
of Israel must be a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. After all, look at what happened in 1967.”
look at what happened in China in 1949. I guess the communist revolution in that country must have been the fulfillment
of some kind of Bible prophecy, because look how “God” gave communists the victory in China. And make no mistake
about it: China’s communists are no more atheist than Israel’s Zionists.
Thanks to beguiled Christians
in America, along with the sheer power and force of the U.S. military, C.I. Scofield’s dispensationalism has been the
single most influential factor in turning the old American republic into a new American empire—an empire devoted to
fighting endless wars for Zionist Israel abroad, while also allowing Zionism to destroy America’s Christian culture
The vast majority of America’s televangelists and radio broadcasters are Christian
Zionists. Many, if not most, of the largest churches in America are led by Christian Zionists. A large percentage of America’s
Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries are led by Christian Zionists. And these Christian Zionists continue to
regurgitate the lie that Israel was invaded during the Six-Day War, when actually Israel was the invader. And they also
continue to ignore Israel’s brutal fifty-year occupation of Palestine.

"ERASING THE LIBERTY" MOVIE PROJECT..... http://usslibertymovie.com/
In my January 11
column I also said this:
If you don’t believe there is an ongoing national
cover-up to protect Zionist Israel, consider this case history:
foreign naval vessel is lumbering in international waters. It is flying a brand new 8’x5’
flag, which unmistakably identifies it as a major ally of the country whose coastline
is nearest the ship. The ship’s markings are ten feet high on both sides.
It is not a warship. It is an intelligence-gathering ship. For all intents and
purposes, it is defenseless against any warship or attack aircraft, having but four .50-calibre
Browning machine guns without shrapnel shields as its only offensive weapons. On
board are 286 souls.
Suddenly, and without provocation, the supposed “ally”
nation attacks the ship with both warplanes (which were unmarked) and torpedo
boats. For over an hour, the helpless ship is riddled with machine-gun fire, rockets,
and torpedoes. Within moments, the ship is completely disabled. As it seems certain
that the ship will sink, lifeboats are lowered, but the attacking torpedo boats
immediately strafe the lifeboats with gunfire. Helicopters from the aggressive country carrying
Special Forces troops hover over the ship, which is now listing at nine degrees.
Clearly, the attacking country intends that no one survive.
has no engines, no rudder, and no power. As the Special Forces soldiers from the attacking
country are being positioned to launch their final assault, the ship’s Captain barks,
“Standby to repel boarders.” One sailor yells, “They’ve come
to finish us off.”
The only thing that saves that ship and those
survivors that day is eight warplanes from a nearby aircraft carrier that had heard the
initial “Mayday” cry from the ship. This caused the attacking country
to withdraw. As it was, 34 of the ship’s officers and crew are killed and only a
divine miracle and superhuman Herculean effort from the sailors in the bowels of that steel
graveyard keeps that ship afloat. When the attack first began, one general from
the attacking country protested to his commanding officer, saying, “This
is pure murder.”
But what the country whose ship was attacked and whose
men were killed did is most curious. It did NOTHING. In fact, the government of
that country immediately declared that the attack had been a “mistake”
and then proceeded to completely cover up what had happened. And to this day, the
citizens of that country know almost nothing about what took place on that fateful day.
attacking country in the above case was Israel. The country attacked was the United
States. The date was June 8, 1967. And the name of the ship was the USS Liberty.
one imagine what U.S. reaction would have been had the USS Liberty been attacked by
an Arab nation? Can you imagine how pastors and Christians would have reacted
had the attacking country been Iran, Iraq, Syria, etc.? But since the attacking country
was Israel, hardly anyone in the United States even knows (or cares) about it.
Tomorrow (June 8) is the 51st anniversary of Israel’s
merciless and unprovoked attack against our country in which 34 U.S. Sailors and Marines were
killed and 176 wounded. And as I said, almost no one in America knows anything
The attack on the USS Liberty joins the assassinations
of President John Kennedy and U. S. Senator Robert Kennedy, the shoot-down of TWA flight 800, the
capture of the USS Pueblo, the shoot-down of KAL flight 007 and the 9/11 attacks
as one of the most covered up atrocities in U.S. history.
influence in Washington, D.C., and especially in the Trump White House is extensive.
If the American people truly understood the degree in which a foreign government (Israel) influences
(legally and illegally) Congress and the White House (not to mention Wall Street
and the Federal Reserve), they would truly throw all of the “bums”
out. As it is, Donald Trump is counting on the fact that Robert Mueller is just as compromised by
the Israeli lobby as any other politician in Washington, D.C. And he doubtless
So, the conservative Trump toadies and the Christian Israel
worshippers can probably relax. Nothing is going to come of the Mueller investigation, and
the Trump and Israel conspiracy will remain intact.
I am helping the survivors of the Israeli attack against the USS Liberty distribute
the tell-all book they wrote that chronicles the true story of what happened on
that fateful day of June 8, 1967. One of these Liberty survivors, Ron Kukal, is a
co-author of the book and has become a good friend of mine. I am pleased to help Ron and his
shipmates get the word out about their fantastic tell-all book Remember The LIBERTY! I urge readers to get as many copies of this book as they can to
pass out to their friends and loved ones.
To show you the depth of this 50-year cover-up of
Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty, even the American Legion has denied Liberty survivors a booth at their 2018 national
convention. Can you believe that?
And since it would be too much to expect America’s
pastors to educate their church congregations about Israel’s horrific attack,
due to their strong bias in favor of Israel, you will need to obtain the information
and distribute that information to your friends, loved ones and fellow church
