|On June 8, 1967 during the 6-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS Liberty, with 34 American servicemen killed, 171 wounded in the 2-hour assault by Israeli planes and torpedo boats. Israel claimed it was an accident, but there is no doubt they knew they were attacking an American ship. We have radio transcriptions of the Israeli pilot in charge telling ground control that this is an American ship.|
