The deliberate attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 by the State of Israel is about accountability and injustice. After 40+ years, there are as many unanswered questions now as there was then. There is an on going cover up that continues to this day. Both the US and Israeli governments and their sycophants and apologists have stated officially yet never proven that the attack was an “accident”, ” a misfortune of war” and a “friendly fire” incident yet tapes and files are still classified. Every effort has been made to silence the crew, their families and and avoid and prevent an honest and open accounting.
This crime and cover up shall not stand. We seek an accounting and we shall continue to seek the truth and we will remember.
“Never before in the history of the United States Navy has a Navy Board of Inquiry ignored the testimony of American military eyewitnesses and taken, on faith, the word of their attackers.”
