Remember USS Liberty attack

We have recently remembered a number of notable anniversaries, including D-Day. However, I saw no coverage of the 50th anniversary of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, which was in international waters during the Six Day War. Thirty-four Americans were killed and 171 were injured. This attack included the war crime of machine-gunning Americans who were in the water.

Israel apologized and made the explanation that it was a mistake. After 50 years, the National Security Administration will not release its confidential details. If the Israeli narrative were true, no one would have an objection to transparency.
