The story that must be told of 40 years ago today.

Originally published 6/9/07:

I think this story must be told over and over again so that we can really throw the hard questions at our foreign policy in the middle east and uncover it for what it is. 

Only two years after the Gulf of Tonkin saw the US using a fake attack on our Navy as an excuse to begin a war that killed 2-4 million people… A real attack took place against a US Naval spy ship in the Mediterranean Sea, the USS Liberty, that killed 34 sailors and wounded 174.  This horrendous attack occurred 40 years ago today… and it was completely and fully covered up by the US government.  By our own standards we should have killed off a large percentage of the population of the country that attacked us… instead, a few short years later we were selling them billions of dollars of weapons a year.  Of course, that country was Israel.  The evidence shows that they attacked us very deliberately possibly with direct orders from Moshe Dayan himself.  Read this amazing story in this excerpt by Jeffrey St. Clair and judge for yourself:

    It is shameful how the story has been ignored, particularly on this recent 40th anniversary. Read just how devastating this assault was here:

    Thank you for that very good link. Our government sold out these men’s heroism and sacrifice in the interest of pacifiying Israel… and it continues to do so.
