The Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty
by Paul Craig Roberts
Introduction: For a number of years Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was my colleague at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Tom, after whom the F-14 Tomcat fighter is named, expressed to me his concern that US politics and foreign policy was in the clutches of Israel and that America was being led into war with the Arab Middle East. Admiral Moorer and the State Department and Pentagon at that time did not think that war with the Arab countries served the interests of the United States. However, Admiral Moorer thought that the war could not be avoided because of the hold Israel has over the US government.
The Israelis fancy themselves to be mighty warriors. This incident proves they are cowardly bungling buggers. How is it possible that successive waves of fighter bombers and torpedo attacks failed to sink the USS Liberty which was defenseless? When they became aware that their victim would be defended, they turned tail and ran. That is how the Israelis always act. The sneak attack is their specialty. It is what sneaks do. The BIG QUESTION is how did these freaks get control of the U.S. government and keep control of it for at least seventy-one years — since "the buck stops here" Harry S. Truman to Obama the most incompetent President yet?
