In early 1967 the US had an even hand approach in the ME.
The Liberty was on a real NSA mission to keep tabs on the Israelis.
The Israelis didn't like it and decided to attack the Liberty. They gambled LBJ wouldn't respond.
No only did LBJ not respond but he initiated a significant cover up in order to protect the israelis due to the pressure of the pro Israel lobby. The cover up really wasn't even exposed until 2003 when Adm Thomas Moore did his Independent Commission Report.
I'm pretty new here, but is this CU or DU? (or maybe I stumbled upon an Obama blog or Daily Kos diary). They certainly hate the Joooooos! at those sites. This American Joooooooo! supports Israel 100%.
