YOUR NEW REALITY
June 9, 2010
Never heard of the USS Liberty?
Do you know that an American naval vessel was attacked by Israel in international waters, 43 years ago today, resulting in the deaths of dozens of American sailors, seriously wounding more than 170?
If you haven’t, don’t feel bad. Most Americans under the age of 40 haven’t heard of it either. It has been all but written out of official American history.
This American veteran has now survived TWO attacks in international waters by Israel. And the US government has been all but silent, both times.
“Machine-gunning of life rafts.”
If you’re an American,, why don’t you call your local radio station or TV station right now, ask for a news producer, and ask them why they aren’t talking about this important anniversary.
Don’t be surprised if, like you, they’d never heard of the USS Liberty, either.
It’s been written out of American history. Like it never happened.
Like they wish it never happened.
But it did.
UPDATE : I just Google News-checked “USS Liberty”. Outside of bloggers and veterans’ news sites, there was barely four mentions of this anniversary, small mentions, On This Day In History type mentions, nothing substantial.
Like it never happened.
