On June 8, 2005 the USS Liberty Veteran’s Association filed a “Report of War Crimes Committed Against U.S. Military, June 8, 1967” with the U.S. secretary of the Army, who, by law and international treaty, is required to look into such charges. Please read this report, which can be found on the USS Liberty Memorial Web site: <http://www.ussliberty.com/>.
Having received no substantive communication since the filing of the report, two retired U.S. Navy admirals—one a Navy Judge Advocate General officer who, in June 1967, was attached to the command of Adm. John S. McCain and who refused to sign the U.S. Navy Court of Inquiry Report on Israel’s attack on the Liberty—wrote a letter to the secretary of the Army and the secretary of the Navy and to U.S. Senator and former Secretary of the Navy John Warner. The text of this letter is available at: <http://freewebs.com/gidusko/crimes/>.
The families of those killed June 8, 1967 and those who are fortunate enough to have survived the attack, as well as the American people, deserve the truth. I ask you, as my representative, to call for an official investigation into this 39-year-old tragedy.
City, State, Zip:

The USS Liberty Veterans Association (LVA) has tried for over 39 years to expose the truth behind Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty. Congress has never investigated the June 8, 1967 attack. There has been a colossal cover-up surrounding this tragedy, such as why two flights of Naval aircraft dispatched from Sixth Fleet carriers were recalled.
What is clear is that Israel Defense Forces murdered 34 Americans and wounded 172 on board the USS Liberty in international waters, and that there are few in Congress willing to risk confronting Israel-first lobbyists to wage a long overdue investigation.
