42 Years ago the USS Liberty was attacked by Israel in international waters. All attempts to come to the Liberty's aide was called back by President Johnson so as to not embarrass Israel. (unbelievable) Then to compound matters all military leaders and even the crew were ordered to keep their mouth shut about this incident.
HERE'S THE ACCOUNT IN GOOD DETAIL
To this day this incident keeps me from being sympathetic toward Israel. The incident itself is enough to enrage me but even deeper rage and disrespect of our leaders civilian and military has been caused by the cover up of our leaders to keep the countries support of Israel high.
The abandonment of our sailors by their whole chain of command is an act that I will never be able to forgive. On the other hand I am unable to understand why someone in the chain of command didn't rat out the operation.
I'm sure they would have vanished from the face of the earth but having provided the evidence to one of a few reporters who are brave enough to make it public. No one ratted the higher ups although the story pieces did surface the whole story never made it to the public.
When you loose trust of your leaders you lead and unsettled life. When you automatically question what comes from our leaders mouth it keeps you busy sorting out fact from fiction. With our MSM parroting what ever the offical word is your pretty much on your own to dig out the truth. Thanks to the Internet you can dig out scraps and eventually piece the story together. The one thing that gives you a starting point is you can pretty well count on the company line being a lie.
