The Attack on the USS Liberty
In June 1967, during the 6 Day War of Expansion, the US spy
ship, the USS Liberty was listening to Israeli communications. Israel didn’t want information as to what
they were doing to leak to the Egypt and its allies and they attacked the ship.
The US response was to cover the attack up. They could hardly attack their closest ally
in the region. One cannot help thinking
that what happened to the USS Liberty was an example of what the US perpetrated
on other peoples, but the film is worth watching.
