Ray McGovern served as a CIA analyst for 27 years, from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush.

Ray does a stellar job in the 32 minute video, taken a few years ago but more critical now than it was then. If you happen to agree with Illhan Omar--or more importantly, if you don't--I most highly recommend this video. Ditto if you are concerned about U.S. Foreign Policy generally.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

Here's a highly related article, one of dozens I have come across on this topic, that I'd rate as "Must Read." Seeing as I can't post it without the needed link appearing on my computer, I suggest pasting and searching the following on another search engine. I used Ecosia only to find it. Censorship is on Red Alert, near as I can tell: "what really happened uss liberty" One can only wonder why Bernie Sanders' hasn't spoken a word about Julian Assange, the most important immediate issue, right after our own U.S. self-censoring the BDS movement. I recommend searching this too: bernie sanders on julian assange

Is anyone else having similar issues? RSVP and thanks in advance.

Reason: (Other) Promote this article with its excellent video to near the top of the page.

EXCELLENT VIDEO!! This article should be close to the top of the page. I learned a lot about the BS that "we" used to go into Syria.


"A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm"

First neocon report calling for Iraq invasion. Delivered to Israel, 1996.


"A Clean Break" as explained so well by McGovern explains a lot about the crap we did in Iraq and Syria and the plans for doing the same in Iran. And it is from 1996!

Daniel, I flagged your comment with "Promote this article with the excellent video to close to the top of the page."

I have never flagged a comment before but I thought when one was flagged it would show as flagged on the comment. I don't see that here.

You might have inadvertently flagged your own comment. I just tried doing that, and it seems to permit that (I cancelled it before transmitting it).

I guess so but I was pretty sure I flagged Daniel's comment. But what do I know. Mine did not show up as flagged for a day.

Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.

Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot's radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.

The pilot's protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities. Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery. [Washington Report]

Israel attacked the USS Liberty using UNMARKED AIRCRAFT. This is the single fact which proves Israel knew exactly who they were attacking. Israel's story is that they thought USS Liberty was an Egyptian ship and therefore a legitimate target of war. Were that true, there would be no reason to attack a supposedly Egyptian ship with unmarked aircraft. The only possible reason to use unmarked aircraft to attack the ship is that Israel knew it was an American ship and intended to sink it, then to blame the attack on Egypt.

Moorer, who as top legal council to the official investigation is in a position to know, agrees that Israel intended to sink the USS Liberty and blame Egypt for it, thus dragging the United States into a war on Israel's behalf. This seems to be a common trick of Israel. Starting with the Lavon affair, through the USS Liberty, to the fake radio transmitter that tricked Reagan into attacking Libya, to potentially 9-11 itself, Israel's game is to frame Arabs and set them up as targets for the United States.

The official US investigation is discredited. And with it, every claim of innocence for Israel that relied on the official investigation as a source.

The real question facing the American people is why the US Government seems more concerned with protecting Israel after they are caught playing these dirty tricks, rather than doing something to convince Israel not to kill any more Americans.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ringand its connections to 9-11.
