    Israel intentionally committed an act of war on the United States

    More suprisingly, the media hasn't picked it up. I didn't hear about this month-old article or this military commission report until I checked The Memory Hole. WTF? Why did everyone fail to publicize this?

    It would have been during the Six Day War between Israel and Egypt/Syria/Jordan.

    Never heard of that one. I hate History, but you seem so smart about it, man. So what do you think, Ash? Couldn't have been a case of mistaken identity then. Maybe they were told the ship was an ally of someone else to get the opposing side to attack?

    if true I would like to see an investigation/reparations. however, given how much stuff gets blamed on israel (earthquakes, unemployment, the masons, ect.) I'm hesitant to assume anything.

    I don't know anything about it, I don't even know where the ship was stationed, Red Sea?

    I thought this was pretty common knowledge.

    I've heard of it, there was something about an official apology afterwards and the matter was cleared up. Such things have happened before (like the Panay in 1937).

    I think (my memory is a little hazy) that it was in the Mediterranean, and it was attacked by land based Israeli planes.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if U.S. history textbooks glossed over the entire incident, though. Ever hear of the Panay?

    It has been some time but, if a recall correctly.

    Shortly after the attack began a distress message was received and, assistance was sent. The State Department then intervened and, they managed to get the assistance recalled.

    The State Department believed it was a Nation other than Israel that had launched the attack at that time. The State Department feared that it could start a war and, the ship and all hands were left to die.

    That's what the article says too. Don't you guys read the articles we post?

    Disgusting. (Abandoning the Liberty, I mean, not the not reading.)

    Actually Gus, if it's not too much to ask, next time highlight the important details, and underline important names and dates. Oh and next time remember, we're putting cover sheets on our articles, we sent out a memo, i'll have another one sent to you right away. Yeeah, that'd be terrific, thanks a bunch Gus

    I'll buy that. In my home state, Tulsa was the scene of the largest race riot in American history. Hundreds of people were murdered and several square blocks of a well-to-do black business area were burned to ashes. This information was subsequently omitted from the Oklahoma history books and faded into obscurity. In the 1990's, a PBS program brought the incident back into the public view and forced the state to form an investigation committee which later published a large dossier on the subject.

    I attended Oklahoma City public schools in the 1960's and was required to take a Oklahoma history class. This incident was never addressed. Oklahoma's politics, in the 1920's, was strongly influenced by the notorious Klu Klux Klan. That was never discussed either. It was nearly 30 years later that I found out much of this information.

    Funny how embarrassing incidents like Israel's bombing of a US ship and the race riot of Tulsa are quickly shuffled away and subsequently ignored.

    I guess we don't like to teach our children that our nation and its allies can and do make grievous mistakes.

    edited for clarification

    I don't know if this is a case of embarassment as much as politics, the Maine or the Lucitannia were heavilty publicized and helped instigated war. Had this incident received similar press it would have furthered war into a volatile region and drawn military support away from Vietnam.

    I know I didn't spell that right, don't care, got history paper to write!!1one

    Ah, but both those events were ones where the government wanted to go to war. With the Liberty they absolutely did not want to stir any **** with the Israelis. They wanted to avoid it so badly they were willing to let American servicemen die in order to preserve their alliance with Israel, a country that was killing these very servicemen!
