The sad part about this post is, looking at my age, Ive only known about this for a few years, as it’s not taught in school or even mentioned in American History books. If you look on the internet about this piece of hidden History, I suggest you use any search engine, but Google. Why?… Google purges as much as it can in dealing with any criticism of Israel. (Not Joking)
Whatever search engine you do use, you will see comments on videos and articles by many Americans who are in the same predicament…We never learned this is school, never saw a movie about it, nor a documentary and we’re late in our ages.
I’ll be using videos from Aljazeera and RT News. It’s pretty sad, when you have to use Foreign News Channels, because the American ones are fearful of the repercussion of telling the truth about Israel.
That’s just fucked up
“The USS Liberty Incident: History & Overview”
“On June 8, 1967, the fourth day of the Six-Day War, the Israeli high command received reports that Israeli troops in El Arish were being fired upon from the sea, presumably by an Egyptian vessel, as they had a day before. The United States had announced that it had no naval forces within hundreds of miles of the battle front on the floor of the United Nations a few days earlier; however, the USS Liberty, an American intelligence ship under the dual control of the Defense Intelligence Agency/Central Intelligence Agency and the Sixth Fleet, was assigned to monitor the fighting. As a result of a series of United States communication failures, whereby messages directing the ship not to approach within 100 miles were not received by the Liberty, the ship sailed to within 14 miles off the Sinai coast. The Israelis mistakenly thought this was the ship shelling its soldiers and war planes and torpedo boats attacked, killing 34 members of the Liberty’s crew and wounding 171. Ships from the Sixth Fleet were directed to launch four attack aircraft with fighter cover to defend the Liberty, but the planes were recalled after a message was received at the White House that the Israelis had admitted they had attacked the ship.”
“The Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was a grievous error, largely attributable to the fact that it occurred in the midst of the confusion of a full-scale war in 1967. Ten official United States investigations and three official Israeli inquiries have all conclusively established the attack was a tragic mistake. “

Israel has been telling that lie for the last 53 years.
