What Did We Learn From Israel’s Sneak Attack on the U.S.S. Liberty?

USS Liberty after Israeli sneak attack

Memorial Day is to honor the American military and in particular those members of the military who’ve died or were wounded in battle.

 

By Bob Johnson

 

Editor’s note:  Today, Vice President Biden said that if you attack the United States we will hunt you down.  We are waiting, Mr. Vice President.

There are 33 American military members and one American civilian contractor who died terrifying horrific deaths and 174 Americans who were horribly wounded due to Israel’s sneak attack on the virtually unarmed American intelligence ship the U.S.S. Liberty on June 8, 1967.

These dead and wounded men were deemed useless to the U.S. political whores in Washington. That is why the cowardly war-mongering Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, after ordering American fighter jets that were on their way to save the Americans on the U.S.S. Liberty from their Jewish butchers back to their carriers said, “President [Lyndon] Johnson is not going to go to war or embarrass an American ally over a few sailors.”

The tragic case of the U.S.S. Liberty should teach any American who is in the military or who is thinking about joining the military about who is really running the show and who they really are or will be fighting for. The politicians owe the only thing they care about, their meaningless political careers, to the Israel lobby and the Jewish dominated media. They look at Americans in the U.S. military as pawns they can use to promote their political careers. Not only will the U.S. military be used to advance Israel and its stooges in the White House and Congress with no regard for the welfare of American military personnel, the politicians will NOT use the American military to protect American citizens from Israeli violence.

America has not learned its U.S.S. Liberty lesson. Things have actually gotten much worse. Now, instead of one American ship being

attacked by the terrorist state of Israel, our entire military is used to fight wars for Israel’s benefit. Case in point is Iraq. The Iraq War was spurred forward by the Jewish neoconservative Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz. He was the one who first suggested it to goy-boy George W. Bush. And Wolfowitz had the gall to play wounded American vets for fools by buying them stake dinners in Washington and signing autographs (as shown at right) for the trusting and unsuspecting pawns.

Today we are coming very close to showing that we are still just as unthinking and naive as ever by moving closer to a war that will greatly benefit Israel and harm America and the rest of the world. This time the war will be with Iran. Currently the politicians are going through the same routine as they did in the build up for the unnecessary war for Israel’s benefit with Iraq. They are holding talks with the Iranians over Iran’s nuclear program. Even though it takes uranium enrichment of 90 percent to be usable for a nuclear weapon and Iran hasn’t come anywhere close to that, the media and government are squawking that Iran already has enough enriched uranium to build five nuclear bombs! Add to this the fact that Israel already has a growing nuclear stockpile, submarines to deliver them virtually from anywhere on the globe and also has biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction and no U.S. politician or any politician in Europe, Canada or Australia is calling for open inspections of Israeli REAL AND EXISTING WMD and it becomes painfully crystal clear that we have learned absolutely nothing from the Israeli sneak attack on the U.S.S. Liberty. We have not learned that Israel’s inhumane brutality and raw aggression exhibited on the men of the U.S.S. Liberty instructs thinking minds that Israel should NEVER be allowed to have WMD of any kind. If America had learned its lesson from the martyrs of the U.S.S. Liberty we would not only immediately cut all aid and support for the Jewish state, we would go in an disarm it.

Below is a list of the dead from the Israeli sneak attack on the U.S.S. Liberty on June 8, 1967. We owe it to each and everyone of them to learn from this avoidable mistake.

  1. Israel can kill, maim, steal, spy on, rob us, fleece us, own Congress, own the White House, and America and the American people are hapless and hopeless and could not do any thing about it. This is the nature of the relationship, one is the master the other is the subject… and we all know who is the master… The US is like an abused battered spouse afraid to speak up…

  2. I do not mean to duplicate the fine posts of wolf and others, but I re-post what I just posted under a USS liberty site here. Last book I read on this subject was Operation Cynaide by Peter Hounam, FYI. :::

    Circumstances suggest that LBJ was part of plan to murder our sailors on USS Liberty (by Israeli unmarked planes) as provocation to drop nuclear weapons on Egypt—-with multiple (5) submarines (including two of ours— USS Amberjack and Trutta, plus French and Italian) under or near USS Liberty—–selected parts of our secret committee had to have been in on this plan in advance since subs sent over months in advance—but not the entire committee as indicated by the temporary and abrupt resignation of Cyrus Vance—who obviously was outraged. This story is still suppressed; and infers that LBJ was in on a rogue plan to nuke Egypt to aid Israel, and likely only those with loyalty to Israel knew of (which explains Cy Vance outrage). Recall the story, likely relayed through McNamara, in which LBJ said call back the planes going to defend USS Liberty because I am not going to embarrass an ally, even if they sink our ship. Recall that our closest carrier, still distant, had its two “ready planes” on deck armed only with nuclear weapons—which is unheard of as, they are usually ready for defense of ship. None of the many submarines surfaced to help USS Liberty which was in desperate straits with need of medical supplies and personnel. The book, Opium Lords, excellent, excellent book, has chapter which demonstrates that LBJ and Lady Bird were crypto Jews; and what is amazingly funny is that pictures of LBJ and Golda Miere (former PM of Israel) look like twins. LBJ had dark history per many recent books. In 1998 (35 years after the fact), an unidentified fingerprint on one of the boxes at the window of Dallas Book Despository (the one falsely attributed to spot of Oswald’s lair) was finally identified and it belong to LBJ’s personal hit man, (Malcolm Wallace, who per books/writings murdered numbers of people—low of 8, high of 17, for the benefit of LBJ).

  3. Israel admitted it’s mistake and paid almost $7 million to the families of those who were killed or wounded. That equates to about $63,000 per family. They also paid $6 million to the US government for the damage to the ship. That was allot of money back then.

    This information is no where to be found in this story. Vetranstoday is obviously not a balanced news outlet and has a serious ax to grind with Israel.

    I am an amateur who found this information in less than 3 minutes of looking into the incident.

    What you leave out of a story says more about you than what you put in.

    • That $63,000 is in todays dollars as equated to .84 of what todays dollars are worth in comparison to 1968 dollars.

      • Charlotte NC Bill

        They’ve gotten over a $100 billion from us…That’s a pretty good return…Don’t ya’ think they factored that in? And besides; they got the money fm the US taxpayers ( or the reptilian Rothschilds ) in the first place…not like they spent their money..Do they ever? Their only “mistake” was they didn’t take out the communications antennas faster-before we could send word to our Embassy in Athens and our other ships in the Med that talmudia was purposely attacking us…and then the mighty Chosen couldn’t sink our ship….

  4. Stalin is said to be the illegitimate child of Maurice Ephrussi, the husband of one of the Rothschild women. Stalin’s mother was Keke…
    “As an old lady, Keke, supposedly encouraged Nina Beria, wife of Stalin’s Caucasian viceroy and later secret police chief, Lavrenti Beria, to take lovers and talked very spicily about sexual matters: “When I was young, I cleaned house for people and when I met a good-looking boy, I didn’t waste the opportunity.” (pp.27-28) 



    Keke’s husband Beso referred to Stalin (Beso) as “Keke’s little bastard”:

    

”When Soso hid, Beso searched the house screaming, “Where is Keke’s little bastard? Hiding under the bed? Keke fought back. Once, Soso arrived at Davrichewy’s house with his face covered in blood, crying: “Help! Come quickly! He’s killing my mother!” The officer ran round to the Djugashvilis to find Beso strangling Keke.”
    The full story is here.

    • Stalin was a Rothschild employee at their plant in Baku. He was a criminal even then, set fires and incited violence. No wonder they liked him.

  5. Sorry to bust your bubbles—USA created Israel.Like the daughter who killed her mother for some ca$h. Not really! USS Liberty bombing was contracted out to Israel by Washington.For the sole purpose to blame the Egyptians and America military would take over from Israel’s invasion. It was reported that LBJ was ready to unleash nukes onto Egypt until was reported to him–Not migs but F16’s”
    Like self inflicted Sept !1 2001 attacks–Israel was hired to do/plan the whole affair—on orders/approval from Washington.Israel is evil and greedy for cash. USA can’t stop funding Israel–they know to much

  6. The USS Liberty attack in 1967 was a mistaken identity incident. So, most likely, was the 1987 attack on the USS Stark that resulted in more deaths than the Liberty yet is not at all publicized today. The August 11, 1966, attack by the USAF on the United States Coast Guard Cutter Point Welcome (WPB 82329) is another example. A year after the Liberty attack the USAF launched its own miniwar against the USN, USCG and RAN. In June 1968, the following vessels were attacked in waters off Vietnam: USS Boston, USS Edson, USCGC Point Dume (WPB 82325), USS PCF 19 (a patrol boat) was sunk (five dead), USS PCF 12
    HMAS Hobart (Australian Navy) (two dead).

    • Stanley

      Israel did the Stark also. As for your statements, the surviving crew members find this outrageous. See the BBC special or read any of the books or the statements by the medal of honor winning captain.

      how long have you been making excuses for mass murderers?

      i am for hunting down the killers and skinning them alive.

      this was genocide.

      we have the history, we know admiral mccain’s part, lyndon johnson authorized the killings and we have confirmations from israel on all of this

      you are from a planet outside the astroid belt

  7. I am speaking as a survivor of the attack. I dare say that if you had been there and saw them circle the Liberty time and time again looking us over, and having them wave at some of us, gave us a supreme feeling of confidence that they were around. Can you imagine and knowing that the American flag was flying why they would attack us anyway? They were going to take the Gaza and the Golan Heights and we were in the way. Do you really think they care about the American people? Really? They have spent us into an oblivion of debt with their war mongering ways, and still they want more. Support them no matter what they do? I don’t think so.

  8. I guess the pertinent question is, can Israel and the zionist crime / murder syndicate be defeated WITHOUT war?

    I’d like to think so, but am increasingly doubtful. As much as I deplore war, I’d rather fight than continue to be a slave to The Reptilians.

  9. Just like 9/11 we found out the president knew all about it.

    • Lyndon Baines Johnson was one of the worst traitors ever to occupy the White House. The reason he was so loyal to Israel lies within his own ethnicity. It appears that he and his wife were secretly Jewish.

      He not only knew all about the Israeli attack on the Liberty, but he and arch-traitor Robt. McNamara personally ordered the recall of fighter jets dispatched to interdict the attackers and then ordered the whole thing covered up.

      According to an independent, unofficial study, the “The White House deliberately prevented the U.S. Navy from coming to the defense of USS Liberty by recalling Sixth Fleet military rescue support while the ship was under attack…” McNamara recalled the aircraft that had been launched from the Saratoga within minutes. Certainly, he would not have made such a move without Johnson’s approval.

      Secretary McNamara ordered the aircraft recalled a second time. Admiral Geis was told that President Johnson had ordered the aircraft to be returned, “He would not have his allies embarrassed, he didn’t care who was killed or what was done to the ship.”

      According to Admiral Geis, President Johnson, known for his ruthlessness and vile profanity told Geis, “I want that goddamn ship going to the bottom. No help — recall the wings.”

      He was also ostensibly behind the assassination of JFK and the total escalation of the tragic Vietnam war based upon a staged false-flag attack. What a guy.

      Hey but at least he placated his liberal dummycrat base with Medicare, Medicaid, public housing, model cities, food stamps, subsidies, and all of the other programs of the “Great Society,” doing everything he could to entangle the American people permanently in FDR’s welfare-state version of socialism. Rest in peace MFr and thanks a lot.

      • Operation Texas
        From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

        Operation Texas was an undercover operation to relocate European Jews to Texas, USA, away from Nazi persecution.

        In part, Johnson was influenced in his attitude towards the Jews by the religious beliefs that his family, especially his grandfather (Samuel Ealy Johnson, Sr.), who was a member of the Christadelphian church, shared with him. Christadelphians believe that the Jews are God’s chosen people, and LBJ’s grandfather once said to him, “Take care of the Jews, God’s chosen people. Consider them your friends and help them any way you can.” In reference to Operation Texas, Texas historian James M. Smallwood commented that LBJ “apparently took seriously his grandfather’s charge.”

      • sorry for double post…first one never showed up so I launched a truncated second attempt

  10. Charlotte NC Bill

    Since then we’ve learned that WE SHOULD HAVE entered the war on the side of the arabs!

  11. Thanks for keeping their memory alive.

  12. Perhaps it is time we considered beginning a real war on terror.

  13. But Israel was chosen by G_d to own the world. And who can question G_d?

    Amen,
    Infidel

  14. I’ve been anti-war since I wore the greens. All of us, every one of us who finally woke up at some point in our personal history and realized that we were stupid dupes of a bigger entity. At first, we did not see the really big picture, we saw good guys, bad guys, and guns. Upon reflection, upon consideration and study about Kent State, finally the spark was struck and we new then that lives and deaths mean exactly the same thing, nothing. Our current struggle is how do we straddle the mighty Patriot Act, the NDAA? How do we transmit the sobering facts of the futility of wars, the advance state of dupedom, to those who would enlist in our military “so the US can be safe”. It has to give us some satisfaction that not only do we see more articles about this imperialism, this chronic and sick money/power combo, but we are starting to feel, for the time being, a bit more empowered to carry the words to those that need it desperately. No soldiers, no wars. NSNW. A group of us older vets gets together periodically and today’s topic was just this putrefied process of lies that leads to death and sickness for our willing, if ignorant, dupes. Of course, we all realize that out and out declaration against military service will tread a very thin and dangerous line. What if Canadians did this for American enlistees and Americans did it for Canadians? No task left to us codgers is more important than this process of informing our young people against the ravages of war and our illegal foreign excursions. Figure out this Gordian knot and we’ll be eating steak tonite.

    • “No task left to us codgers is more important than this process of informing our young people against the ravages of war and our illegal foreign excursions.” I couldn’t agree more! Thanks!

      Progress! Bob Johnson

  15. In short we learned what we’ve been learning over and over since then. Israel is a rogue state and an enemy of the United States of America. Terrorists and thieves. Everything they project their victims to be and more.
