USS Liberty Survivors Have Taken the Historically Unprecedented and, as Patriotic Americans, Somewhat Embarrassing, Step of Creating a Petition in an Effort to Persuade the US Government to Conduct a Complete Investigation of an Attack on a US Navy Ship.
Every attack on a US Navy ship since the end of World War II has been investigated by the US Congress.
Every attack except the attack on the USS Liberty.
What is so unique about the attack on our ship that justifies the US government allowing it to be attacked with impunity?
Could it be the fact that:
We were attacked by unmarked aircraft?
- Our radios were jammed on both US Navy tactical and international maritime distress frequencies?
- Life rafts we had dropped over the side in anticipation of abandoning ship were deliberately destroyed by machine gun fire from the attacking torpedo boats?
- Attacking torpedo boats slowly circled the torpedoed and burning ship while firing from very close range at USS Liberty crewmen that either were trapped topside or who ventured topside to help our wounded shipmates?
- Attacking torpedo boats departed the scene immediately upon ceasing hostilities instead of offering aid immediately as is required under international law.
Or could it be something else?
We don’t care why it hasn’t been investigated as long as the reason is determined during the complete investigation we are petitioning the US government to conduct.
