The USS Liberty was a United States Navy Technical Research and Intelligence ship that was attacked by numerous Israeli Air Force jet fighters aircraft AND Israeli Navy torpedo boats on June 8, 1967, which was during the Israeli “Six-Day War”.
The combined air and sea attack killed 34 crew members (officers, seamen, Marines, and one civilian), wounded 170 crew members.., as the Israeli forces did their best.., to sink this ship !! At the time, the ship was in “protected” international waters north of the Sinai Peninsula, which was about 26 miles northwest of the Egyptian city, Arish. Both the Israeli AND the U.S. governments conducted inquiries and issued reports that concluded that the attack was a “mistake” due to Israeli confusion about the identity of the USS Liberty.., which was “the one and only” ship of its kind in the world at the time ??!! U.S. diplomats and intelligence officials continue to dispute the “official findings”.., saying the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was not a mistake.., and remains the only maritime incident in U.S. history.., in which U.S. military forces were killed.., and then was NEVER investigated by the U.S. Congress !!! Over the years, there have been numerous documentaries produced on this “incident”, but this particular film (originally titled “Loss of Liberty”) was one of the very first to be made, AND because of that.., has interviews with more of the actual survivors of the Israeli attack than any other documentary to date… As always.., after watching.., do your best to “pass it on”… “Truth Does Not Fear Investigation” AND… “He who Wins the War.., also Writes the History”
