Brezhinski and other Israel-haters pretend that the Liberty was pre-planned attack and that America was an ally of Israel at the time of the Liberty when the "realist" U.S. State Department policy was to avoid challenging Nasser and his Arab allies directly and to passively enable what was viewed as an imminent Arab sweep of Israel into the sea. Didn't work out that way and the Liberty got caught in the cross-fire. Israel has strategic means to target Iranian nuclear weapon sites without requiring them to mount complex air operations and should consider these.
