Revolutions and Manipulations : Veterans Today "Make no mistake, the Liberty was meant to be sunk and with everyone dead, and the plan was to blame Egypt. America would have then invaded and occupied Egypt in 1967 were it not for a torpedo missing its mark by no more than 1 foot." USS LIBERTY w What i saw that day israels 1967 holocaust of american servicemen aboard the uss liberty and its aftermath What I Saw That Day Israels 1967 Holocaust of American Servicemen Aboard The USS Liberty And Its Aftermath by USS Liberty Survivor Phil Tourney is finished and available to the public in electronic media format. My good friend, Francis Brown had caught a machine gun bullet or a piece of shrapnel in the back of the head and his blood was everywhere. His eyes were closed but his face was swelled up like a balloon. It was something that no human being should ever have to see and especially when it is your good friend. My first thought when seeing this was Those Arab bastards, they just blew my friend to pieces Chapter 2Those Arab Bastards As the helicopter hovered over us at about fifty feet above the deck, I could see that my worst suspicions had been proven correct. This was not a rescue helicopter. Instead, there were commandos, special forces, armed with sub-machineguns used for close-quarter combat. I knew immediately they were not here to give us help. They were here to finish what their fellow assassins had been unable to accomplish. They were going to murder the entire crew of the USS Liberty. Then, once we were all dead and they were free to move about as they pleased, they would place explosives in strategic areas of the ship, detonate them and sink us all. The perfect crime, leaving no witnesses. As the helicopter hovered for a moment, I saw that the troops inside were preparing to board the ship. From no more than 75 feet away, I stood like a dumb-ass in an open doorway where they had a clear shot at me. I locked eyes with one of my would-be assassins who was sitting on the floor of the helicopter. His legs were hanging out, and he had one foot on the skid below as he waited for the order to repel down to the ships deck and finish us all off. and then the shock realization. they weren't Arabs.... they were Israelis.
