This MOST IMPORTANT Ship in our Nation's history is the "Rosetta Stone" and the key to the scandal of the corruption of all of our political institutions and our Foreign Policy by the Israel/Zionist lobby and of our involvement in financing and equipping the theft and rape of Palestine and the enslavement of the rightful owners of that poor country over the past 60+ years. This humble little Ghost Ship has one more GIANT mission, and that is to MAKE US ALL FREE and UNITED ONCE AGAIN: ONE FINAL BATTLE ON ITS' VOYAGE HOME TO THE MOTHER OF ALL HEROES' WELCOMES!!
On June 8, 1967, Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats launched a ferocious two-hour attack against the USS Liberty, an American intelligence ship operating in the eastern Mediterranean. Of the 294 men aboard the vessel, 34 were killed and 172 were wounded. For years the survivors kept silent about what happened, under threat by military authorities of severe punishment if they revealed the truth.
Now, in this powerful film documentary, USS Liberty survivors speak with moving candor about what really happened. "The Loss of Liberty" includes interviews with high-ranking Israeli military officers. High-ranking American military and civilian officials, including Dean Rusk, former U.S. Secretary of State, and Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, provide authoritative analysis.
"I have never believed that the attack on the USS Liberty was a case of mistaken identity," Admiral Moorer has said. "What is so chilling and cold-blooded, of course, is that they [the Israelis] could kill as many Americans as they did in confidence that Washington would cooperate in quelling any public outcry. I have to conclude that it was Israel's intent to sink the Liberty and leave as few survivors as possible."
"Israel's premeditated, sneak attack, on the USS Liberty was a direct attack on America," says Phillip Tourney, a crewman wounded in the attack. Awarded the Bronze Star for his heroism under fire, he is president of the USS Liberty Veterans Association. "The disgraceful refusal of unpatriotic American governmental officials of dubious allegiance to defend America and come to the aid of brave Americans under attack can only be characterized as treasonous," he says.
"The Loss of Liberty" tells the shocking, long-suppressed truth about the treacherous assault, and tears to shreds the shameful official story that the attack was a case of mistaken identity.
