The attempted false flag attack on the USS Liberty led to nuclear bombs nearly being dropped on Cairo, Egypt. As long as there are nuclear weapons in the world, there is reason to worry a mistake will be made leading to nuclear armageddon. It has nearly happened a number of times before. It could almost literally be a misinterpretation of a flock of starlings flooding a radar screen. In the case of the attack on the USS liberty, the mistake was identifying the wrong country as the attacker.

The nuclear-armed fighter jets that had been dispatched by President Lyndon Johnson to Cairo were recalled only minutes before they reached the city. "President Lyndon Johnson dispatched nuclear-armed fighter jets to drop nuclear bombs on Cairo, Egypt. They were only recalled at the last minute, when Johnson realized that it was the Israelis - and not the Egyptians - who had fired on the Liberty."

In the words of Phil Ochs, "There but for fortune," another mushroom cloud would have arisen above death and destruction.

A fitting comment I read on one video about the attack on the USS liberty:

"So if Egypt attacked us, we would nuke them. But if it was Israel, then nothing is done except to cover up for them. And this was 50 years ago. How long has Israel been running America?"

A number of things I had not seen previously about Israel's false flag attempt to sink the USS liberty and blame it it on Egypt to drag the United States into Israel's war with the Islamic country, are shown below.

There are many sources with the same information but the following is from this article, click here:

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.

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 (click here), through the USS Liberty, to the fake radio transmitter that tricked Reagan into attacking Libya (from the Cynthia McKinney article, Why Obama Attacked Libya click here), 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.

So many important and revealing things lie dead in the water and out of sight in history books; things that reveal the dark side of this country, the United States of America; things the main stream media will not bring up to remind people or to teach younger people the true history of this country. The Israeli attack on the USS liberty is just one of those things that lies out of sight hidden in the history books.

As with most conspiracy theories, the best clues to their accuracy are contained within the answers to basic questions:

*Does this even make any sense?

*What does the preponderance of the evidence show?

*What biases do the people presenting the theory have?

What sense would it make for Israel to deliberately provoke the U.S. into a potential nuclear conflict with Egypt, when at the time of the attack Israel had the 6 day war well in hand:

Israelis Rout the Arabs, Approach Suez, Break Blockade, Occupy Old Jerusalem; Agree to U.N. Cease-Fire; U.A.R. Rejects It (New York Times, June 8, 1967).

There's been several investigations done, with every one confirming what makes the most sense: It was essentially a friendly fire incident, due to several mistakes and misperceptions which are common in the fog of war.

Bias can be very detrimental in an honest search for objective truth:

"I've never seen a President . . . stand up to them [Zionists]. If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms." -- Thomas Hitman Moorer, 1983 interview

There seems to be a significant number of people quite affected by anti-Israel bias, to the point of outright hatred. This doesn't necessarily equate to actual anti-semitism, but it is a relatively close cousin. They tend to believe anything seemingly negative regarding Israel, and angrily reject anything positive. Simply not acceptable in any quest for truth. Another form of bias, which may have nothing to do with being anti-Israel, would be simply due to the fact that someone lost a friend, a shipmate, or was himself injured and traumatized by the attack, which might explain someone changing their story over time.

Both these types of bias cloud judgement, and make one tend to focus on what is most emotionally or perhaps financially comforting, rather than objective truth.

Becky, you cherry pick your info. You do the same thing with 9/11. You let the CIA decide for you before you even look at both sides. By simply calling it a "conspiracy theory," shows you think it is just a "conspiracy theory." That is why the CIA came up with the term, it shuts down discussions and reasonable thinking about whatever someone labels as a conspiracy theory.

Did you even watch the video link in the article? Did you actually read the article? Even if you did you just dismissed it out of hand. Becky, what do you think about the fact we almost nuked Cairo? We almost nuked Cairo because Israel tried to pull a false flag by trying to sink the USS liberty. The planes with the nukes were dispatched by the president because the false flag almost worked by getting President Johnson to think it was Egypt who attacked us. But Johnson figured it out just in time to have the jets recalled.

The Soviet Union at the time was close to Egypt and if we had actually nuked Cairo?? Well, that could have lead to unimaginable annihilation. You and I would not be here today.

Becky, what do you think about Operation Northwoods, Operation Gladio, the Gulf of Tonkin, the USS Maine, the the testimony -- later recanted -- of a 15 year-old girl known only as Nayirah that hundreds of babies had been taken out of their incubators and left to die on hospital floors; her false testimony is what prevented the American people from being against the US invading Iraq in Desert Storm.

Becky, I am not talking about "conspiracy theories," I am talking about "conspiracy facts!"

"Becky, what do you think about the fact we almost nuked Cairo?"

This strikes me as false. The notion that we would have repeated the nuclear bombing of Japan on Egypt, a nation we weren't even at war with, boldly inserting ourself into a conflict we were loath to get involved in, based on at the time I'm sure unclear information, is simply not believable. Conventional weapons perhaps, but nukes? I've searched high and low for clear confirmation that this indeed happened. Perhaps you can help me out.

Operation Northwoods? That was a theoretical scenario written up by the DOD as a way to gain public support for action on Cuba, which was rejected. In reading it, it's clear they aren't advocating for anyone actually getting killed, especially any Americans. It's counter to your narrative on the USS Liberty, because that was an actual armed attack that killed many Americans.

Operation Gladio? Sorry, not familiar.

Gulf of Tonkin? This is a good look at the whole episode, in context. I'm sure there's some logical fallacy about assuming just because two or more events share a few characteristics, that means the most horrible conclusions about all are true. Yes, newsflash, politicians have distorted facts and bent the truth in order to advance an agenda. We all know that. What's never been true however is the deliberate murder of Americans, by either America or Israel, as part of it all.

USS Maine? Further illustration of that logical fallacy, existing or needing to be created. There's no evidence that we would actually blow up that ship and murder American soldiers in order to go to war, which I assume is your assumption.

Nayirah? I don't think we were aware she was apparently embellishing her story until after the war, were we? So it's hardly useful in advancing the USS Liberty CT. It's not debatable that the Iraqis committed many atrocities in Kuwait, however, so there was a larger, overriding truth.

Thank You David. My intent is to point out the basic flaws in logic and reasoning behind so many of these conspiracy theories. In this case:

The whole notion that Israel would knowingly attack a U.S. vessel makes very little sense from any perspective, other than from one like from David Watts that is infected with a clear case of disdain for Israel.

The real evidence, not bitter hindsight feelings 12 years later, shows clearly the attack was a mistake, which of course makes perfect sense.

The anti-Israel bias and disdain for anything Israel practically drips from anything written by these conspiracy theorists. David first links to "whatsreallyhappening", perhaps not a true Holocaust denial site, but surely a Holocaust 'questioning' site. To all these types it makes perfect sense that Israel would do something evil, because to them, Israel is evil. This is simply not true from any clear thinking, objective analysis.

Here's one of David's bolded points of 'fact' to support his theory:

"Israel attacked the USS Liberty using UNMARKED AIRCRAFT. This is the single fact which proves Israel knew exactly who they were attacking."

But that's not true, according to testimony soon after. ....Signalman Russell David testified that he saw Israeli insignia on the attacking jets and reported this to the Captain. Most conspiracy theorists have ignored David's testimony.

"When the boats reached an approximate range of 2,000 yards, the center boat of the formation was signaling to us. Also, at this range, it appeared that they were flying an Israeli flag." -- Cdr. William L. McGonagle, June 14, 1967

Amazing how much false propaganda is out there. I guess it's an unfortunate sign of just how pervasive the hatred for Israel is among not just basement dwellers, but also certain elites in the media, who are quick to headline a response to Hamas rockets fired into Israel as: "Israel Attacks Palestinian Territory, Civilians Killed". 12 paragraphs in, we learn why.

Hi Becky,


I appreciate your full and well thought out response to articles that are clearly biased against Israel and often hide any-semitism as well.


It is perfectly understandable for individuals to not support some of the incendiary actions of the current government. That does not make you an anti Semite. That being said I find it disturbing that the bulk of articles on Israel published here are negative and rarely talk about the positive or relate the folk history of Israel.


It is much like the rest of most nations that disparage Israel even as you indicate, when they are defending themselves


Although I write on many topics I feel there are others better qualified fo write articles Rabat point out all the positive aspects of Israeli society and Israel's incredible success and achievements and most particularly contributions to society.

Tell me, is there anything good that is real does? It seems there's a penchant for finding every negative about Israel a country whose neighbors don't believe in its right to exist. One might pay more attention to some negative facts if at the very least and attempt was made To tell all sides of the story. One has a question the author and the publication when there is virtually never anything positive about Americans only ally in the Middle East

Thanks, David, for this most critical and informative article. Anyone who does not grasp the overwhelming role of Israel in controlling U.S. foreign policies has much homework to catch up on. Need I even note that they have nuclear weapons illegally and we utter not a peep about it, whilst wailing about Iran? In America we are censored from even discussing the depths of this and related issues. That you couldn't embed the video mentioned syncs completely with more similar experiences of my own than I can count. You need othar search engines than Google to even find these things.

Whether you agree with the car and is Railey government political stance would you consider Iran more of an ally in Israel is to America? Does Israel refuse to acknowledge Iran's right to exist? Is there anything he's real can do that's positive or do we only look for everything negative that we can find in this publication? Who do you consider in the middle east to be Americas closest allies? Who do you hear more in terms of terrorism on American soil in the middle? It would be helpful to talk about the positive as well as the negative unless one has a specific agenda regarding Israel. I am not suggesting if this is the case but I do suggest it is a fair question to raise

Here's a slightly different question, and this is coming from an ordinance Bernie Sanders supporter. Is Joe Biden gets the nomination will you make a protest vote or not vote because some of Joe Biden's policies you may not agree with. Or, will you look at the totality of his record particularly in human rights and just like that it is in the country's best interest for there to be solidarity to make sure that the Republican nominee whoever he may be just not get elected again? Once again this question is will just for you it's for everyone. Are we such purist that unless individual key to everything we believe and we are willing to for sake the opportunity to make change. I worked very hard for the Bernie Sanders campaign including writing numerous articles and I feel he was cheated out of the nomination by the Democratic Party, that being said I voted for Hillary Clinton as I felt he was a far better choice did Donald Trump. Perhaps some of my fellow progressive would not consider me a progressive for this vote. That's OK I certainly know that I'm not responsible for the destruction of American democracy that is resulting from having Donald Trump as president. How many readers of this message shows to vote for third-party candidate or not voted off rough in Abeling Donald Trump to win the nomination I guess so do you feel it was worth it

Are Israel's nuclear weapons really "illegal", or do you just not like that they have them? Perhaps you're right; it's just that I've never heard them referred to as being illegal.

The BBC "Dead in the Water" video at your Holocaust denial/revisionist/minimalist site would not play for me. But the fact that the site is what it is certainly serves to illustrate my point regarding bias and general disdain for Israel.

However that video is not hard to find on YouTube. I'll watch it when I have time in the next day or so and get back to you.

Yeah I missed that where you linked it at the end. But you also linked to it via "whatsreallyhappening", an obvious Holocaust revisionist site near the beginning of your article. That's where it wouldn't play for me, or maybe it was only a picture that wouldn't display.

I watched the BBC purported "documentary". It's really just a propaganda piece, cleverly produced to mimic a true documentary. I guess it is technically a documentary in that it does document one side of the story.

Long on emotion and mystery shrouded conjecture, short on facts, proof and testimony from shortly after the incident. Short on critiquing changing stories, and identifying inherent bias. Probably because the producers themselves harbored anti-Israel bias. A fish doesn't understand he's in water, and that there's a whole other world up there.

Now I suggest you read this book, or at least peruse this site and other articles written by the author.

I would have no problem believing that Israel really did what you think they did, if the whole thing made any objective sense and if there was clear, quality evidence for it. That's simply not the case here. In fact just the opposite.
