Reader comment on item: The Liberty Incident: The 1967 Israeli Attack on the U.S. Spy Ship

Submitted by Stan White (United States), Nov 3, 2002 at 13:07

As a survivor of the intentional attack on the LIBERTY, I agree 100% with what Mr. Ennes has stated here!

Of all the books and articles written about this muderous attack, and the US's government not allowing US Forces to come to assistance of a Navy ship under attack, very few have bothered to interview or discuss with the survivors what they experienced and witnessed. Those that take the time to talk to us have little problem in finding the truth. The attack was INTENTIONAL, including the machine gunning of our life rafts, and the leaders of the United States were willing to sacrifice an American ship and it's heroic crew!

Some day both of these countries will have the courage and fortitude to hold truthful investigations and release information about the attack still held as classified after almost 36 years. Anyone know why this info is still classified?
