Next, please read Joan Mellen's book, Faustian Bargain for the latest on the false flag attack on the USS Liberty.]
Compare this book to the misleading one by Cristol, "The Liberty Incident Revealed" (wonder if he's related to Bill Cristol?) Amazing how few Americans today are aware of this, that the nation who attacked a US Navy vessel in international waters, and killed many seamen, and wounded others, some quite horribly, was Israel. A most important historical read to understand who the real allies of the US are, and many doubt it is Israel. (John McCain's father was the cover-up specialist on the aftermath of this attack.)
