Israel attacked a US Navy ship, the USS Liberty, killing and injuring over 200 American servicemen. President Lyndon Johnson recalled rescue flights, saying that he did not want to "embarrass an ally." (In 2004 a high-level commission chaired by Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, found this attack to be “an act of war against the United States,” a fact few news media have reported.)LBJ was more concerned about Israel's feelings than the 34 dead and 171 wounded Americans. This is your government at work, riding roughshod over the Constitution and tossing Americans overboard to save Israeli face.
On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. Survivors have been forbidden for 40 years to tell their story under oath to the American public.
Despite a near-universal consensus that the Israeli attack was made with full knowledge that USS Liberty was a US Navy ship, the Johnson administration began an immediate cover-up of this fact. Though administration officers continued individually to characterize the attack as deliberate, the Johnson administration never sought the prosecution of the guilty parties or otherwise attempted to seek justice for the victims. They concealed and altered evidence in their effort to downplay the attack.
Here's a brief synopsis of that savage and unprovoked attack on US personnel:
At 0800 hrs, 8 June, 1967, eight Israeli recon flights flew over 'Liberty,' which was flying a large American flag. At 1400 hrs, waves of low-flying Israeli Mystere and Mirage-III fighter-bombers repeatedly attacked the American vessel with rockets, napalm, and cannon. The air attacks lasted 20 minutes, concentrating on the ship's electronic antennas and dishes. The 'Liberty' was left afire, listing sharply. Eight of her crew lay dead, a hundred seriously wounded, including the captain, Commander William McGonagle.Source
At 1424 hrs, three Israeli torpedo boats attacked, raking the burning 'Liberty' with 20mm and 40mm shells. At 1431hrs an Israeli torpedo hit the 'Liberty' midship, precisely where the signals intelligence systems were located. Twenty-five more Americans died.
Israeli gunboats circled the wounded 'Liberty,' firing at crewmen trying to fight the fires. At 1515, the crew were ordered to abandon ship. The Israeli warships closed and poured machine gun fire into the crowded life rafts, sinking two. As American sailors were being massacred in cold blood, a rescue mission by US Sixth Fleet carrier aircraft was mysteriously aborted on orders from the White House.
The Israeli attacks killed 34 US seamen and wounded 171 out of a crew of 297, the worst loss of American naval personnel from hostile action since World War II.
Do you think that a sadistic, amoral bloodthirsty people like the Israeli's that 'machine-gunned survivors trying to escape in life rafts' in order to sink the Liberty and use that 'false-flag' to drag America into helping Israel fight their 1967 War of Aggression would hesitate to murder 13 Americans in Texas so we'd keep fighting Israel's wars today in the ME?
Or do you believe the government's version about the Ft. Hood shootings?
They lied to us about the 'rescue' of Private Lynch.
They lied to us about Saddam's connection to 9/11 so we'd invade.
They lied to us about the murder of former NFL star Pat Tillman.
They lied about Saddam having 'nukes.'
The lies told on the day of the Hood massacre, when we were told for over FOUR hours that the shooter(s) was dead. Why lie? Or did they find a critically wounded Muslim patsy and change the story to fit the narrative about staying and fighting wars for Israel for the next 70 years?
Obama has set a new record for breaking campaign promises and LYING. He hasn't closed down Gitmo; he hasn't brought the troops home, he's shipping them to Afghanistan; he's using signing statements to evade the law, just like Bush; he lied about not hiring lobbyists; he's lied about helping struggling Americans keep their homes, to not use emergency funding to pay for the ongoing occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, etc.
How many times do the feds have to lie to you before you realize they're lying sacks of shit, only interested in helping their Wall Street bankster buddies and protecting Apartheid Israel from reality and being prosecuted for war crimes?
This AP story, that went to press before they found a Muslim patsy, states that there were TWO shooters in TWO different locations. There's way too many stories and video feeds making the same claims about two different Ft. Hood shooters to dismiss.
Our OWN government would rather lie to us than tell the truth about Israel's vicious attack on the USS Liberty. A government that is even more obedient and in the control of the LOBBY than it was in 1967, so what would prevent those congenital liars from covering up and LYING about another Israeli attack against America?
Still not convinced that our government is a vicious pack of sleazy liars, thieves and cutthroats in bed with Israel and Zionist interests?
And what about the government lies surrounding 9/11?
The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.
And do you truly believe that combat hardened vets would stand around, bleating like sheep getting butchered and not take action while someone shot over 100 rounds of ammo?
The only way that scenario works is if there were multiple shooters using automatic weapons.
