No presidential statement, no congressional resolution, no mainstream media coverage, no surprise.
June 8 is the 44th anniversary of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty and as usual there’s a few who remember and care and who try to keep the memory alive. From the less well known Manitq al-Tayr, NTS, and Jody to some more ‘prominent’ bloggers such as Eileen Fleming and Paul Craig Roberts, the word is being told.
A few opinion pieces on the Liberty get buried in the Gannett chain of propaganda such as here and here but no major media front page remembrances are to be found. The Jerusalem Post has an article but they still spin the “it was a mistake” angle and only those with anti-Israel sentiments bring up that poor little Israel would have done such a thing deliberately.
“There are people who are anti-Israel or who are on the other side of the Arab-Israeli conflict and because the United States-Israel relationship is so strong and so good they find very few ways to attack it. This is one of the focal points on which they like to aim when they are attempting to attack and destroy that relationship.”
All I can say is that if telling the truth and expressing historically correct facts about a horrendous false flag attack upon Americans by our false ‘friend’ destroys that relationship, it will be better late than never.
Silence on any subject of importance means complicity. It is not an acceptable option. It is part of our undoing.
