BBC--New evidence for cover-up of attack on U.S. warship

June 8, 2012

I just want to know how can anyone watch this BBC documentary and not cry when you hear the sailors describe the horrors and how they overcame them.

"It's understandable if you've never heard of the USS Liberty and the more than 200 sailors who were wounded and lost their lives the day she was attacked in the summer of 1967. What's still not understandable is why the Liberty was ambushed by Israeli gunships, that efforts to rescue dying sailors were called off, and a massive cover-up trailed the incident's wake."--by Robert Johnson, Business Insider, June 6, 2012

"This past Memorial Day, Sen. John McCain was heckled about the Liberty attack while speaking to a crowd in California. "What about the cover-up for Israel of the USS Liberty?!" the heckler shouted. He was promptly escorted out by Secret Service."--by Elizabeth Flock, who is a staff writer for U.S. News & World Report, June 4, 2012

"On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it"--from USS Liberty Memorial Site

"Israeli and U.S. officials have said the attack was accidental, but others argue that it’s been the subject of a 45-year government cover-up."--by Sam Lane, The Gazette, 7 June 2012

What I Saw That Day Israel's June 8 1967 Holocaust of US Servicemen Aboard the USS LIBERTY and its Aftermath

"Often we are asked, 'What can I do to help?' Here are some things you can do with some examples of what others have done before: Write to your Congressman. The attack on our ship was a documented, proven war crime even as described by the Israeli government. The Israelis claim that they attacked without first identifying the ship or its nationality. That alone is a war crime. We know that they did in fact identify our ship as American before attacking and attacked with full knowledge that we were American. Yet even if their story were true, their own version of the circumstances would identify this attack as a war crime. Thirty-four Americans died and 174 were wounded. Yet the attack on the USS Liberty is the only serious maritime incident in American history that has never been investigated by Congress. Urge your Congressman to break this longstanding impasse. "

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
