    Dead In The Water - The Sinking of the USS Liberty

    The USS Liberty incident was an attack on a United States Navy technical research ship, USS Liberty, by Israeli Air Force jet fighter planes and motor torpedo boats, on June 8, 1967.

    The combined air and sea attack killed 34 crew members (naval officers, seamen, two Marines, and a civilian), wounded 171 crew members, and severely damaged the ship.

    At the time, the ship was in international waters.

    Both the Israeli and U.S. governments conducted inquiries into the incident, and issued reports, which concluded that the attack was a mistake, due to Israeli confusion about the identity of the USS Liberty.

    Some U.S. diplomats, veterans and intelligence officials involved in the incident continue to dispute these official findings, saying the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty was not a mistake, and it remains the only major maritime incident in U.S. history not investigated by the U.S. Congress.

    Fighting against an oppressive regime for freedom and attacking the war ship of an ally and then shoving it under the rug are clearly the same thing.

    I care, but putting it in current events forum is using a tragic mistake as obvious grandstanding.
