    The USS Liberty attack and what happened that day with Ernie Gallo

    in US Government

    During the 1967 Arab-Israel war, US Navy intelligence ship the USS Liberty entered the Mediterranean Sea to gather information. The Israeli regime, which was dissatisfied with the presence of USS Liberty in the region, decided to attack the USS Liberty. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. 34 people were killed and more than 171 were wounded in the Israeli attack. Israeli regime insists that they mistakenly attacked the USS Liberty.

    What is TRUTH? 'The USS Liberty'

    in Culture

    The Israelis attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 is one of the most blatant acts of war ever happening on an American ship especially by a supposedly "friendly" country.   Why did this happen?
    Why does there seem to be a coverup even after all these years?  We will be discussing these issues and play some interesting interviews.
