Cracker Jack Ahron Cristol and his “men behind the curtain” investigation (“Almost no record or institutional memory of this investigation can be found”, Pg. 161) now tells us that he managed one of the biggest (in his mind) news exclusive of ALL USS Liberty “experts” that he alone secured interviews with the Israel pilots. In fact he tells us twice which is nice. His own words: …
“The pilots sat behind a curtain or screen so they could not be identified by the investigators”…”This author met with and interviewed the pilots face to face and is the only non-Israeli to have done so.”
(Pg. 161, The Official USS Liberty Apologist Manual aka The Liberty Incident.)
“All three of the surviving pilots, who speak fluent English have been interviewed by this author, face to face, without the intervention of a sheet. This author is very likely the only non-Israeli who has interviewed all three of the surviving pilots face to face. The fourth pilot was killed in an aviation accident while preparing for an air show in 1979. Under the terms of an agreement with Israel Field Security, the names of the living pilots are not to be disclosed”
(Pg. 265, The Official USS Liberty Apologist Manual aka The Liberty Incident.)
Not another word is mentioned about these interviews, what was discussed, what was asked, “no quotes”, no elaborations, comments, refutations, explanations, their versions, time or place, the weather, their thoughts, apologies, rationalizations, hindsight, consequences…not one damn word is ever mentioned in his book from these interviews from “Top Gun Ahron’s” revelations. And this is Israel where if you are a “non-Israeli” investigating the USS Liberty, you stand a better chance of getting run over by a bulldozer. After all killing unarmed Americans and “non-Israelis” with impunity by calling them “accidents” and “tragedy” in Israel is a national pastime.
These events never happened…just sheer fabrications from the comedy mind of Ahron Jay Cristol. You can’t be more dishonest than this. I also take issue with his self reflection as a “non-Israeli”, nothing could be further from the truth than this disloyal sell out.
The Clown will return…
