Admiral Thomas Hinman Moore was a man who understood politics and how the Israeli regime has manipulated politicians in Washington. Moore was “an admiral and naval aviator in the United States Navy who served as Chief of Naval Operations from 1967 to 1970, and as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1970 to 1974.”
Moore also served in World War II and was awarded the Gray Eagle Award for his military service. He died in 2004. When he saw what the Israelis were doing, most specifically when it came to the USS Liberty, Moore declared:
“If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens don’t have any idea of what goes on.”
These words were written in 1984, but it seems they were written just yesterday. The vast majority of the American people simply do not know what is actually going on. Moore wrote an entire article in the Houston Chronicle saying that the Israelis were as guilty as charged when they attacked the USS Liberty. Moore unflinchingly said:
“On June 8, 1967, Israel attacked our proud naval ship — the USS Liberty — killing 34 American servicemen and wounding 172. Those men were then betrayed and left to die by our own government.
“U.S. military rescue aircraft were recalled, not once, but twice, through direct intervention by the Johnson administration. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s cancellation of the Navy’s attempt to rescue the Liberty, which I personally confirmed from the commanders of the aircraft carriers America and Saratoga, was the most disgraceful act I witnessed in my entire military career.
“To add insult to injury, Congress, to this day, has failed to hold formal hearings on Israel’s attack on this American ship. No official investigation of Israel’s attack has ever permitted the testimony of the surviving crew members.”
Moore was a man who deserved our respect because he was not afraid to expose what the Israeli regime was doing to Americans. He ended his article by saying:
“The American people deserve to know the truth about this attack. We must finally shed some light on one of the blackest pages in American naval history. It is a duty we owe not only to the brave men of the USS Liberty, but to every man and woman who is asked to wear the uniform of the United States.”
We need American soldiers, officers, and lieutenants like Moore. We don’t need political prostitutes like Lindsey Graham.
