Today marked the 50th anniversary of the attack on the USS Liberty, the most decorated ship in history, in the Mediterranean Sea, in which 34 sailors, marines and civilians lost their lives.

171 others were injured during the two-hour attack by a supposed ally clearly intended to insure that there would be no survivors.

Only through the miraculous efforts of the surviving crew members, many of them badly injured, was the Liberty spared from being completely submerged and with it the story of the survivors' incredible bravery as well as the incomprehensible brutality of the act. It was, in fact, the worst peace-time attack on a vessel in naval history and amounted to coldly premeditated mass murder on the part of the attacker.

Every effort was made to cover up the outrage. It emanated from the the top levels of the military and the U.S. government, including, most of all, LBJ himself, a loathsome enterprise that continues to this day. That the Liberty's saga remains one of the most suppressed stories in American history and has almost completely faded from our collective memory is to our everlasting shame.

Rather than debating the mostly fake issues surrounding what is essentially a punk sniping match between two rich, spoiled brats, Trump and Comey, we would've been better served honoring the memory of those brave souls who lost their lives while in service to our country by casting light on exactly what happened on that ignominiously fateful day exactly a half-century ago today and demanding justice for the victims.

Wow, thanks for the post. I had never heard of this. A black day in US history to be sure. Stories like this is why so many believe that there are false flag operations and that the government lies to the people constantly.
