Loss of Liberty, The
“Worst of all is what our government is doing to cover all this whole thing up. When I heard that Johnson, in the heat of the battle, was telling the admiral guys of the 6th fleet, that he didn’t give a damn if every man drowned and the ship sinks. He said ‘I don’t give a damn if every man drowned and the ship sinks, I don’t want to embarrass our allies. That makes you sort of wonder with unmarked planes, how did he know it was our allies?” –Josey Toth Linen
Loss of Liberty’ dramatically proves, beyond any doubt, that the attack by Israel on June 8, 1967 against the US naval intelligence gathering ship USS Liberty, in which 34 Americans were killed and 171 wounded, was deliberate. The video first lets Israeli officers make their totally unconvincing case that the attack was a ‘tragic accident’ when the Israelis mistook the much larger and differently configured USS Liberty for the totally unlike Egyptian ship El Quseir.
This filmed testimony by dozens of USS Liberty survivors demolishes Israel’s ‘tragic accident’ claim. Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas Moorer are representative of the honored high-ranking Americans supporting the condemnation of deliberate aggression against the United States by ‘ally’ Israel.
‘Loss of Liberty’ makes clear that then-President Lyndon Johnson conspired with Israel and its Israel-First supporters inside the US government to support the ‘tragic accident’ scheme. Johnson was bogged down at the time in the Vietnam war, and thought he needed Israel Lobby support. Still, Johnson’s behaviour is as unforgivable now as it was then. (Excerpt from video.google.com)
