in response to reader comment: What we expect

Submitted by Steven Lax (United States), Apr 24, 2018 at 13:57

You have not read the ship logs what the captain signed off on. Yes

4 American Jets were dispatched to assist the Liberty but that was before Israel had stopped the

attack and informed America that they accidentally attacked the Liberty .

. Would you expect that America not recall fighter jets to attack Israeli boats after being informed

of their error? Don't you think they would hold off on any attack on Israel before prior to any

investigation? Its nonsense.. after they Jets were called off within minutes 2 destroyers were sent

to aid the Liberty with a search and rescue .

out exactly happened ?
