Damage from Zuni rockets (probably US made) and machine gun fire from purposefully unmarked Israeli Jets (a war crime). This attack came out of the blue after several Israeli reconnaissance overflights that morning; most certainly they would have seen the large US flag and special hull markings of an American naval vessel.
A Photographic Essay of Israel’s Treachery: The USS Liberty, June 8, 1967
Will the US media say something today on the anniversary of this Act of War? Think the “History” Channel might broadcast a documentary? Don’t hold your breath, America — we’re being Jewed!
Here we see a French made, Israeli Mystere Jet photographed by Captain McGonagle with a 35mm camera during one of the strafing runs. The planes had no national markings and the crew didn’t know who was attacking them until the torpedo boats showed up.
Israeli helicopter, with a commando boarding party onboard, circles stricken ship before being called off by home base. It appeared to be looking for a place to set down on the ship and Liberty crew described seeing armed, helmeted soldiers ready to disembark. Were they planning on gunning down the crew at close quarters and finally sinking the ship with explosives, or shooting those in the water if it sank?
In this stark color photo, Damage from Napalm (to burn alive the bridge crew), Zuni rockets, machine gun and cannon fire is easily seen. The Israeli’s first attack priority was obviously the communications antennas and bridge — to stop any revealing mayday communications. Only by the crewman using a jury-rigged spare antenna, did they manage to save the entire crew from a watery grave, since the Israelis must have intercepted the resulting calls for help to the US Sixth fleet. Once realizing the jig was up, called off the rest of the attack.
Arrival at port in Malta (when it should have been ordered to the much closer Crete). The Israelis could not sink her, but they sure tried. The only real question left: Were they the only ones trying?
Defense Secretary Robert McNamara with President Johnson. They called off supporting US planes* from the US Sixth fleet 35 minutes into the attack (it lasted 2 hours). Johnson must have known they were Israelis even before the Liberty crew did. US planes could have arrived in time to stop the torpedo attack that killed 25 men. McNamara’s memory of the day remained foggy (right) and never said anything about what happened in public till he died.
Back in port, the crew were threatened to stay silent about it all, with Senator John McCain’s admiral father heading a phony investigation. Jews and the US government have worked hard to keep a lid on this whole story, even 44 years after. And just think: One Texas clown was president for a false-flag attack on the US in 1967 and another Texas clown was president on September 11, 2001. Think about that one.
Torpedo (most likely US made) damage from Israeli torpedo boats (right). Looks a lot like what happened to the USS Cole after a terrorist attack in Yemen that killed 17 US sailors. The USS Liberty lost 25 sailors and communications analysts from this one torpedo explosion alone. It was only by fluke the ship did not break apart and sink; almost certainly drowning all the American sailors aboard (Israel knew that dead men tell no tales). 34 lives were lost in total and about 172 wounded, some terribly.
Americans monitoring the Israelis communications on that day have come forward and said clearly the Israelis were specifically targeting the ship and knew all along it was American. Many people monitoring communications in the region overheard Israeli commands and have come forward over the years. One example was Steve Forslund, intelligence analyst for the 544th Air Reconnaissance Technical Wing at Offutt airbase in Omaha, recalls reading a top secret airforce teletype that came in that day:
“The ground control station stated that the target was American and for the aircraft to confirm it,” Forslund recalled. “The aircraft did confirm the identity of the target as American, by the American flag.
“The ground control station ordered the aircraft to attack and sink the target and ensure they left no survivors.”
Forslund said he clearly recalled “the obvious frustration of the controller over the inability of the pilots to sink the target quickly and completely.”
“He kept insisting the mission had to sink the target, and was frustrated with the pilots’ responses that it didn’t sink.”

Undoubtedly, due to the Zionist Jew censorship (this article came out right before the paper was bought out by Zionist Jew Sam Zell). The hard-hitting piece is thought to have been a parting shot by a few brave reporters knowing they could never do it later. Chicago Tribune does have the story HERE, but may have edited it since then. They disabled the comment board for the story.

Ask yourself this:
If this was a “wartime” mistake by Israel, as they still try to say, then why would they first spray paint out the insignia on the attacking Jets and launch 3 different kinds of attacks on her for over 2 hours? Obviously, they were trying to sink her and kill the 300 man crew. And why would Johnson and McNamara call off US Jets on their way to help early in the attack?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLW7DjWBiUc
Still have doubts this was a purposeful attack by the back-stabbing Israelis, in conjunction with traitors in Washington? Watch the above video and hear what top US military leaders have to say.
My original posting on this: A Treacherous False Flag Attack Foiled by Fate
“People may dismiss what I say as the rantings of an angry old man, but given what is taking place today regarding the war in the Middle East and everything that may happen, my suggestion is that–while there is time–people turn off the Britney Spears, the Desperate Housewives and the football games and listen, listen carefully to what happened, as it is likely to happen again, because, as the old saying goes, ‘a leopard does not change its spots.’”
-– Phil Tourney, A Survivor’s Blog (excellent) at WordPress
“The tragedy though (and certainly the part hardest to swallow by patriotic Americans who would just as soon take their own lives as betray their fellow countrymen) is that there have been and are players on the American side of the equation whose hands are just as dirty as those of their Israeli counterparts…”
“These rats,’ he said, referring to Israel and her defenders. ‘They lie about everything. You can’t believe a word they say’ he told AFP.”
Excellent blog synopsis of this event: Slow Decline blog posting
* Sometimes the excuse is given that the planes happened to be carrying nuclear weapons (which actually leads to even more inconvenient questions) and could not respond so equipped. But how many other planes on hand could have been vectored to the scene with conventional armaments (which they have on hand 24/7)? This shows you just one of the many lies of our government in covering all this up.
