The Loss of Liberty

Why Did the U.S. Allow Israel To Attack Its Largest Spyship
Killing 34 Americans and Wounding Over 170 Others?

The USS Liberty was an electronic intelligence-gathering ship that was cruising international waters off the Egyptian coast on June 8, 1967. Israeli planes and torpedo boats opened fire on the Liberty in the midst of what became known as the Israeli-Arab Six-Day War. Thirty-four Americans were killed and more than 170 were wounded in the attack.

DemocracyNow had an interview today (October 27, 2003) with Admiral Thomas Moorer (once Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), who is calling for a full congressional investigation on the USS Liberty attack. James Bamford, author of "Body of Secrets", was also part of the interview.
