ON JUNE 8, 1967, while patrolling in international waters in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, USS Liberty (AGTR-5) was savagely attacked without warning or justification by air and naval forces of the state of Israel. Of a crew of 294 officers and men (including three civilians), the ship suffered thirty four (34) killed in action and one hundred seventy three (173) wounded in action. The ship itself, a Forty Million ($40,000,000) Dollar state of the art signals intelligence (SIGINT) platform, was so badly damaged that it never sailed on an operational mission again and was sold in 1970 for $101,666.66 as scrap.
At 1400 hours, while approximately about 17 nautical miles off the northern Sinai coast and about 25 nautical miles northwest of El Arish, USS Liberty’s crew observed three surface radar contacts closing with their position at high speed. A few moments later, the bridge radar crew observed high speed aircraft passing over the surface returns on the same heading. Within a few short moments, and without any warning, Israeli fighter aircraft launched a rocket attack on USS Liberty. The aircraft made repeated firing passes, attacking USS Liberty with rockets and their internal cannons. After the first flight of fighter aircraft had exhausted their ordnance, subsequent flights of Israeli fighter aircraft continued to prosecute the attack with rockets, cannon fire, and napalm.
During the air attack, USS Liberty’s crew had difficulty contacting Sixth Fleet to request assistance due to intense communications jamming The initial targets on the ship were the command bridge, communications antennas, and the four .50 caliber machine guns, placed on the ship to repel boarders. After the Israeli fighter aircraft completed their attacks, three Israeli torpedo boats arrived and began a surface attack about 35 minutes after the start of the air attack. The torpedo boats launched a total of five torpedoes, one of which struck the side of USS Liberty, opposite the ship’s research spaces. Twenty-five Americans, in addition to the nine who had been killed in the earlier air attacks, were killed as a result of this explosion.

DoD Approves Of Their Action
The Department of Defense Law of War Program (DoD Directive 2311.01E – formerly DoD Directive 5100.77) provides that “All reportable incidents committed by or against U.S. personnel, enemy persons, or any other individual are reported promptly, investigated thoroughly, and, where appropriate, remedied by corrective action.”
On June 8, 2005 the USS Liberty Veterans Association submitted A Report of War Crimes Committed Against the USS Liberty, June 8, 1967 to the Department of Defense in accordance with the DoD Law of War Program.
The War Crimes Report we filed lists allegations of acts committed during the attack on our ship, including:
•The jamming of our radios on both US Navy tactical and international maritime distress frequencies;
•The use of unmarked aircraft by the forces attacking the USS Liberty;
•The deliberate machine gunning of life rafts we had dropped over the side in anticipation of abandoning ship; and
•The recall of two flights of rescue aircraft that had been launched from Sixth Fleet aircraft carriers. After those flights were recalled, Sixth Fleet personnel listened to our calls for help as the attack continued knowing they were forbidden to come to our assistance.
The Department of Defense has unilaterally waived its obligation under the Department of Defense Law of War Program by refusing to investigate the allegations contained in the War Crimes Report. The Department of Defense has also refused to provide a speaker to address the crew of the USS Liberty and explain their actions with regard to the War Crimes Report.
"By his fifth term he should have plenty of experience."
You think he may have finished a fith or two? That would explain his laziness and incompetence. But he's not slurring his words so maybe he is justlazy and incompetent and not drunk.
I am not going to a FEMA camp, I have other connections and a standing invitation to a small palace in Tegucigalpa.
Linus stole Linux from the farther of the internet Al gore you ignorant POS.
If you want to know who really rules America just read this story. A memorial to American Korean War Veterans that has stood for decades on top of Mt. Soledad near San Diego has been ordered removed by a federal judge.
It had to go because the memorial to American dead simply included a Christian cross.
That’s right. The federal court ruled that having a Christian cross as part of an American war memorial that has stood for decades, violated the principle of “separation of church and state.”
A Christian cross as part of American war memorial must be forbidden, but in thousands of localities across America at this moment, Jewish Menorahs stand with the protection of USA federal court protection. Here is picture of the Menorah that is erected every year in front of the White House.
The organization behind the federal court case to destroy the cross was none other than the Jewish War Veterans. In fact over the last five decades has had the lowest percentage of service men than any other ethnic group, unless of course you can count the Israel army where many have served.
The chutzpah of these Jewish groups in endeavoring to destroy American heritage is downright shocking, but it has become so commonplace that it gets hardly a yawn from Americans any more.
Their control over America can be illustrated by the obvious lies that they get away with constantly. The justification the Jewish-overloaded Supreme Court has used to allow Jewish religious leaders to put up an ancient Jewish religious symbol for a Jewish religious holiday, Hanukkah is that the Menorah is not a religious symbol but secular!
When you are rulers you don’t have to make any sense, you can say whatever you want about anything and get away with it. This is one of those cases and it is so obvious it shameful.
The Menorah of course is the oldest and most important symbol of the Jewish religion. It is a symbol of Jewish racist opposition to assimilation. It actually celebrates the attack of radical Jewish Maccabees on Greeks and Syrians who were not trying to harm Jews but encouraging Jewish assimilation with them. The Jewish radicals massacred thousands of Greeks and fellow Jews who dared to adopt Greek values.
The Jewish religious celebration of the Jewish victory and massacre against assimilationists is celebrated in the Jewish religion as Hanukkah.
The giant Menorah religious symbol at the White House is lit by Rabbi’s and other extremist Jews who openly oppose intermarriage of Jews and non-Jews, and who support the “Jewish State of Israel.”
But somehow putting the oldest symbol of Jewish religion and lighting it in a ceremony of Jewish religious officials on the grounds of the White House is not a violation of church and state!
In fact, it is called secular by the Supreme Court of the United States whose biggest religious block is held by Jews who make up 4 out of 9 Supreme Court justices, a wildly disproportionate 44 percent of the Supreme Court coming from 2 percent of the American population.
Jews are Justices on the Supreme Court at a rate at 40 times more than non-Jews, a whopping 4,500 percent than their population would dictate in comparison to non-Jews!
That’s why Jewish genocidal symbols can be displayed but traditional Christian Crosses are illegal by the interpretation of the Ziopreme Court who is the ultimate arbiter of American policy, the one part of government that the President and Congress cannot overturn, for the Supreme Court is the only body that determines the Constitutionality of a policy.
The American people cannot ever be truly free until this malevolent, hateful power is defeated and deposed!
"By his fifth term he should have plenty of experience."
He appears to have already finished a fifth, maybe more. That would explain lazy and incompetent but he's not slurring his words, so maybe it's just that he's incompetent and lazy..
I won't be in a FEMA camp. I have connections... and a standing invitation at a small palace in Tegucigalpa.
