Silvienne, dont be confused by Ben Jabo's comments. Obviously he knows none of the facts about the attack on the Liberty, and statements such as, "Liberty...knowingly entered a war zone," (it was in international waters) satisfies me he is prepared to say anything, true or not, and is therefore intellectually dishonest, or a liar. The claim that WWII liberty ships could be purchased (so what?) is irrelevant, and one does not just buy a ship and put a flag on it and go to sea. The full report on the attack sent by COMSIXTHFLT arrived in CIA Hqs where I read it. I reported a synopsis in #172. The full report has subsequently been declassified under FOIA and can be recovered under that Act. If Jabo thinks #172 is exaggerated he should recover the documents, or else not comment. The ship was not warned, and there were no oral communications between the ship and the Israelis before the attack, so Jabo's comments about the English spoken is nothing more than an attempt to deceive.
