Again, you have trouble addressing the subject. The question was about the USS Liberty. You again answer with a non-sequitur.The Israeli attack on USS Liberty was deliberate. The ship was cruising 14 miles off Sinai. Ship designation letters were painted 10 ft tall on each side of the bow. The designation showed the ship in the International Maritime Identification book, Jane's Fighting Ships to be a US Naval vessel.The ship was flying the oversized US holiday flag. The Israelis shot that to pieces. The Israelis jammed the ship's communications. An Israeli recon plane flew 90 ft above the mast, twice. Airmen and US crew waved at each other. Two waves of fighters arrived and strafed and rocketed the ship. Then 3 torpedo boats arrived and circled, firing 40mm shells at the bridge and waterline. They then fired 5 torpedos, one killed 24 of the 39 killed in the attack. To abandon ship, life rafts were put over the side. The boats closed and machine gunned them sinking them all.
