Maybe you do not understand what a cover-up is? Here are plausible answers to your questions.

1. There have been plausible motives given for the attack and you have apparently paid no attention to them. As for hard evidence, take your head out of the bucket! Why do you think it's called a COVER UP???

2. The ship was not sunk due to the heroic actions of the Liberty crew and the apprehensions of the attackers knowing they were attacking a United States Ship.

3. Again, take your head out of the bucket!

4. It was a clear day and the ship was clearly marked. Israeli planes had flown over the ship earlier in the day and waves were exchanged by both.If it was a mistake, why would they machine gun life rafts in the water?

Maybe you might be just a little bias on the subject????
