THE ATTACK ON THE USS LIBERTY (AGTR-5)


The ship is the USS Liberty (AGTR-5)...she was a war-built Victory ship with her spacious holds converted to house delicate instrumentation for the highly secrete "TRSS-COMM" signal relay system.  She carried a crew of 300...many of which were highly skilled electronic technicians.

I'm sure you all know of the bombing of the destroyer USS Cole....of which demonstrates the U.S. Navy's recurring lack of foresight when operating in troubled international waters.....but do you know of a similar tragedy of which occurred over 35 yrs ago...with devastating Israeli attack on the above American ship during the famed 'Six Day War'?

This ungodly event happened in June of 1967.....and folks you will not believe what you read about this event.....it will simply blow your mind....the U.S. Navy and our government simply turned there backs on the lives of 300 men....with no defense when being attack....34 died or missing....186 wounded ...two dozen critically....wait till you read how our government rewarded these men....

Just click on this if you care to give it a read:
