Silence Is Not Acceptable

USS Liberty hero dies without seeing justice

No presidential statement, no congressional resolution, no mainstream media coverage, no surprise.

June 8 is the 44th anniversary of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty and as usual there's a few who remember and care and who try to keep the memory alive. From the less well known Manitq al-Tayr, NTS, and Jody to some more 'prominent'  bloggers such as Eileen Fleming and Paul Craig Roberts, the word is being told.

A few opinion pieces on the Liberty get buried in the Gannett chain of propaganda such as here and here but no major media front page remembrances are to be found. The Jerusalem Post has an article but they still spin the "it was a mistake" angle and only those with anti-Israel sentiments bring up that poor little Israel would have done such a thing deliberately. 
There are people who are anti-Israel or who are on the other side of the Arab-Israeli conflict and because the United States-Israel relationship is so strong and so good they find very few ways to attack it. This is one of the focal points on which they like to aim when they are attempting to attack and destroy that relationship.”
All I can say is that if telling the truth and expressing historically correct facts about a horrendous false flag attack upon Americans by our false 'friend' destroys that relationship, it will be better late than never.  

Silence on any subject of importance means complicity. It is not an acceptable option. It is part of our undoing. 

Lying is done with words and also with silence.
False history gets made all day, any day, the truth of the new is never on the news


  1. The Israelis attacked the Liberty in '67. They have been staging false flag attacks for years now. They were behind 9/11. They have killed countless innocent civilians, including numerous American citizens. Can we arrest the traitorous scumbags in the government, and go to war against Israel already? Israel is the only country the US or NATO should be at war against, plain and simple.

  2. Deeper, more rotten all the time.

    I put my four in the US Navy, 68-72, and never heard ONE WORD about the USS LIBERTY despite being in the Sixth Fleet myself (but in a transport squadron with no buddies in the Crypto biz, a MUST to hear the real scuttlebut.)

    Nope. When the Innes book came to my attention a decade after, I learned about it the way everybody else did.

    I can't help but wonder what sort of regime does that, lies to the troop and expects to survive?

    I think we might be near to finding out. The crime will not die despite official stonewalling. We may see the end of the lie, we really might.

  3. Hey Kenny,..Lest We Forget - who did it - ISRAHELL!

    Free Palestine!

    Ich Bin Ein Palestina!

  5. Hi Kenny;

    May be this would sooth this very sad anniversary a bit... :)

  6. I believe that UN personnel [ from India] were also killed on the land, as well as some arab forces, hands tied, shot execution style.

    It was in james Bamford's 'Body of Secrets' [ I think]

    Officially the Israeli's were confused or mistaken about the ship's identity.

    FOR 3 OR 4 HOURS !!??


  7. Thanks for the shout-out, Kenny!

    If it weren't for alternative media I wouldn't have known anything about the USS Liberty, which, as I've indicated, is an amazing metaphor for our own times. As NTS wrote: "The US was about to turn Cairo into a sheet of glass if not for the work of radio operators on the USS Liberty who were able to assemble a makeshift transmitter, and alert the fleet that it was the Israelis that were doing the attacking."

    Who's to say Iran wouldn't be a sheet of glass right now if it weren't for bloggers like you? Thank you for all the work that you do! You honor the memory of those who served on the USS Liberty in more ways than one.


  9. Good one Kenny,

    It was learning about the Liberty that broke me from my Time magazine view of the world. The whole thing was so at odds with everything I understood that it functioned as the keystone being pulled that brought down the whole edifice of falseness. And thank God for that.

    But I just wanted to point out the flipside of Liberty, which is LBJ and McNamara's involvement. This can be clearly seen in the BBC's Dead in the Water which I found on googlevideo.

    In that documentary it's made perfectly clear that apart from the F4's that were sent out to recce the situation (and were of course recalled), two skyhawks were also launched albeit with nukes strapped to them. There's no way this could happen accidentally. It had to come from McNamara and LBJ at the very least.

    With this factored in, the Liberty incident speaks not just of Israel's murderous predeliction for false flag skulduggery but also of US corruption, and that at the highest level and to the highest degree. Honestly they were going to nuke Cairo!

    And then the question is: what did the Israelis have on LBJ and McNamara that they make them do this? Neither of them were Jewish and frankly I can't see how there was anything in it for them. Me, I'm forced to conclude that both of those sons of bitches were in all likelihood full-tilt paedophile satanists who had no choice but to do as they were told. That's not to excuse them of course. They were motherfuckers.

    And then there's Errol Morris' documentary about McNamara wherein McNamara discussed everything under the sun (complete with soft-cock mea culpas) but adamantly refused to discuss the Liberty incident in any way, shape, or form. And not for no reason - Liberty is too incendiary. Were people to know, it'd be the keystone that would bring the whole thing down: Israel, AIPAC, 911, wars in the Middle East, you name it.

  10. Thanks again to all for the comments.

    Jody, you are too kind.

    anon @ 5:56 AM, excellent links. Revenge is sweet.

  11. Hey nobs, I have suspicions that part of the blackmail with Johnson and maybe with McNamara had to do with the JFK assassination. The Dimona connection.


    Kenny these tennessee lawmakers must be flat out insane. Now it is against the law in Tennessee to post an image that might emotionally upset someone!

    Why not just come on out with it and say you are getting ten years if you use the internet.

  13. @ " ... what did the Israelis have on LBJ and McNamara that they make them do this..."

    Some say that elBJ was a typical politico - a firt-rate slime ball, therefore susceptible to easy blackmail, but IMO

    "They" showed elBJ the documentary film, from shooters' vantage points (the ones the public will never see), of Kennedy having his brains blown out. elBJ probably heard something like this as he watched the "directors' cut" movie:

    "If you disobey ANY of our orders, in the slightest degree, if you do not fulfill every demand to the last detail - immediately, you will suffer similar fate...".

    Likely, similar has happened to politicos all over the globe from the beginning of the 21st century:
    "You understand now; we can do a 9-11, a, 3-11, a 7-7, any time we want. We then, simultaneously benefit and profit beyond your wildest imagination from our activities. The only question you must ask - is how much will you allow your people to suffer - in helping us to achieve our ultimate goal, because we win - no matter which way you may choose. It's not a question of if we will achieve total world domination, but when and how much suffering your people will suffer to make it happen. It's all up to you."

  14. Tennessee Law bans Internet images that cause 'emotional distress'

    There goes the Internet.

    A new Tennessee law makes it a crime to post an image online that might "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" to someone.

    As reported by the technology website Ars Technica, the state already has a law against making phone calls, sending e-mails or otherwise communicating with someone in a way that would cause emotional distress. This latest ban, signed by Gov. Bill Haslam last week, is an update to that law.

    The difference is that offenders may be prosecuted even if it's not the intended recipient who is "distressed." Anyone who sees the image - which means anyone on the Internet - could claim it upset them.

    Prosecution can lead to almost a year in jail or up to $2,500 in fines.

    WTF? Does that mean that we will no longer be subjected to the likes of Lady GAG GAG, the Kardasian media junkies and that slimy toad, Newt Gingrich?

  15. The TN legislature went nuts this session.

    I'd post images of them but it might hurt their feelings.

    Here's another discussion on the law.


  17. The story is the Fort Peck dam is looking shaky. It could put St. Louis under several feet of water.

  18. Hey boys and girls, and yeah to all of the above. Anything is possible. And you never know, it could be all of them. Like we'll ever know for sure. The only thing we do know for sure is that the 'why' of their involvement is so beyond the pale that it qualifies as unspeakable.

  19. When I was a young man I carried me pack
    And I lived the free life of the rover
    From the Murray's green basin to the dusty outback
    I waltzed my Matilda all over
    Then in 1915 my country said: Son,
    It's time to stop rambling, there's work to be done
    So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
    And they sent me away to the war

    And the band played Waltzing Matilda
    When the ship pulled away from the quay
    And amid all the tears, flag waving and cheers
    We sailed off for Gallipoli

    It well I remember that terrible day
    When our blood stained the sand and the water
    And how in that hell they call Suvla Bay
    We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter
    Johnny Turk, he was ready, he primed himself well
    He rained us with bullets, and he showered us with shell
    And in five minutes flat, we were all blown to hell
    He nearly blew us back home to Australia

    And the band played Waltzing Matilda
    When we stopped to bury our slain
    Well we buried ours and the Turks buried theirs
    Then it started all over again

    Oh those that were living just tried to survive
    In that mad world of blood, death and fire
    And for ten weary weeks I kept myself alive
    While around me the corpses piled higher
    Then a big Turkish shell knocked me arse over head
    And when I awoke in me hospital bed
    And saw what it had done, I wished I was dead
    I never knew there was worse things than dying

    Oh no more I'll go Waltzing Matilda
    All around the green bush far and near
    For to hump tent and pegs, a man needs both legs
    No more waltzing Matilda for me

    They collected the wounded, the crippled, the maimed
    And they shipped us back home to Australia
    The armless, the legless, the blind and the insane
    Those proud wounded heroes of Suvla
    And when the ship pulled into Circular Quay
    I looked at the place where me legs used to be
    And thank Christ there was no one there waiting for me
    To grieve and to mourn and to pity

    And the Band played Waltzing Matilda
    When they carried us down the gangway
    Oh nobody cheered, they just stood there and stared
    Then they turned all their faces away

    Now every April I sit on my porch
    And I watch the parade pass before me
    I see my old comrades, how proudly they march
    Renewing their dreams of past glories
    I see the old men all tired, stiff and worn
    Those weary old heroes of a forgotten war
    And the young people ask "What are they marching for?"
    And I ask myself the same question

    And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
    And the old men still answer the call
    But year after year, their numbers get fewer
    Someday, no one will march there at all

    Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
    Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me?
    And their ghosts may be heard as they march by the billabong
    So who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me?

  20. Fuck! My fucking awesome comment just got reloaded to oblovionbecause of this stupid fucking blogger security shit!

    Anyway, well said. Pound, Mullins, Thoroeau and so many more, you are all awesome! Isn't it great to live in reality? It is worth it even compared to how tough it is because when you know something about reality at least you know that you know you have your feet on the ground, whereas others who may think they have their feet on the ground, do not. Therefore, the cosmic joke is on them, eh?, and not on us.
