American Legion Joins VFW in Calling for Congressional Investigation of Israel's Attack on USS Liberty.

Due to the persistence of surviving crew members and the continual emergence of new revelations, the national veteran's group American Legion has passed Resolution 40 calling for Congress to "publicly, impartially, and thoroughly" investigate the attack by Israel on an American ship in 1967, in which 34 American sailors were killed and hundreds of others were wounded. The resolution comes despite a veil of government secrecy which keeps key documents on the attack classified more than 50 years later. [NSA USS Liberty documents.

The attack, which surviving crew members to a man say was deliberate, as well as a stellar list of high-ranking officials, has never been officially investigated outside of a Navy Court of Inquiry and an NSA probe. Surviving crew members were not allowed to testify to key points which did not fit the official conclusion that it was an accident.

For example, according to James Ennes who was Officer of the Deck that day, crew members were never allowed to give testimony witnessing an Israeli patrol boat's methodical machine-gunning of the life boats, which supports the contention that the Israelis wanted no survivors.

The surviving crew continues to hold a memorial service in Washington DC each year on the date of the attack, and issues invitations to members of Congress to attend. To date, not one congress member has attended a service.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), the other major US veterans' organization, passed a national resolution calling for a congressional investigation in 2003.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may only happen when pigs make the amazing discovery that they are aerodynamic, but to have such respected, Veteran-centric organizations asking for this, may mean "The times, they are a'changin" for Israel's hubris and impunity, and believing that they can get away with any crimes, particularly against American targets, in order to further their geopolitical goals.
