The Most Diabolical Secret In Washington  Is That America Sent The USS Liberty To Be Sunk. 'The Blackmail Weapon That Israel Uses Against America.'
Israel's 'Knife In The Back' Attack Against America
by Phillip Tourney

Here is the text of the open letter by Phillip Tourney, President of the USS Liberty Veterans Association, published in a full-page advertisement in the daily Washington Times, June 6, 2002.

Saturday, June 8, 2002 marks the 35th anniversary of probably the most shameful day in American history. That day America's banner and honor were treacherously trashed by our so-called ally, Israel. Thirty-four Americans were brutally slaughtered, 172 wounded, including myself. 
America's most sophisticated intelligence ship was so badly damaged it had to be scrapped. Israel deliberately attacked America's virtually unarmed USS Liberty in international waters, knowing full well our identity, in an assault that lasted as long as the attack on Pearl Harbor...
Covert Sacrifice: Operation Cyanide (20:00)
by Iona Miller

On June 8, 1967, at the height of the Six-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors, Israeli air and naval forces attacked the USS Liberty, an intelligence-collection ship in the service of Israel's closest ally, while that vessel steamed in international waters off the Sinai Peninsula.

by BBC Television

On June 8th, 1965, during the Six-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS Liberty belonging to its closest ally, the USA. Thirty-four American servicemen were killed and over 170 wounded in the two-hour assault by Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats. 

Israel claimed that the whole affair had been a tragic accident based on mistaken identification of the ship. 

The American government accepted the explanation. For more than 30 years many people have disbelieved the official explanation but have been unable to rebut it convincingly. Now, "Dead in the Water" uses startling new evidence to reveal the truth behind the seemingly inexplicable attack. The film combines dramatic reconstruction of the events, with new access to former officers in the US and Israeli armed forces and intelligence services who have decided to give their own version of events. 

Interviews include President Lyndon Johnson's Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, former head of the Israeli navy, Admiral Shlomo Errell, and members of the USS Liberty crew.

USS Liberty Cover Up

Israel attacks America to cover-up its War Crimes
Due to the fact that the entire mainstream media (MSM) is owned by the Israeli zionists, the American public is not aware that Israel is the biggest threat to American national security, and many believe that Israel is in fact at war with America and has colonized and occupied it just like the Palestine. The apartheid state of Israel's unprovoked attack on The USS Liberty, the assassination of a true human rights & peace activist, the honorable Rachel Corrie are just a few examples of Israel's war against America. 

Sinking Liberty: Who will write the final chapter on Israel's 1967 confrontation with the U.S. Navy?
USS Liberty Movie

The USS Liberty (AGTR-5) has been called the most decorated United States Naval ship for a single action. But if this is true, why have so few Americans ever heard of the Liberty? The reasons are many, but have everything to do with who attacked the Liberty and who covered up the attack, an ongoing and disgraceful cover-up for nearly 50 years.

Though attempts have been, and continue to be made, to bring the truth about the attack on the Liberty to a wider audience, those responsible for the attack and the cover-up have many resources available to keep this national tragedy buried.

And the most shocking part of this story, is that the country who attempted to sink the Liberty with all those aboard, Israel, on that beautiful, sunny day in the Eastern Mediterranean in June, 1967, not only continues to erase the true history of what happened, but our own country, the United States of America, and those public officials sworn to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution, initiated the cover-up and continue, to this very second, to dishonor those 34 men viciously slaughtered and the 174 wounded, who are forced to live knowing their own country abandoned them on the altar of political expediency.
The cover-up has been so thorough that this is the only maritime attack in U.S. history not afforded a Congressional investigation, as required by the U.S. Constitution.
Based on the new book by Liberty survivor Phillip F. Tourney, Erasing the Liberty: My Battle to Keep Alive the Memory of Israel's Attack on the USS Liberty, some of the ship's survivors and supporters decided the most effective way to bring the story of the Liberty to the widest possible audience was through a full-length feature film.
Liberty survivors are dying off and need to have their story told. They and the American people deserve no less. Help us make this dream a reality. Donate to the USS Liberty film project today.
