    "Why is bringing up the IDF attack on the U.S.S. Liberty?" - jimmy Yes, why? "That was an unprovoked attack against the United States." - Jimmy True, but it was also an incredible screw up. I had my doubts for decades. I sympathized with the intercept specialists who had to be monitoring the attack that drowned them. The NSA released transcripts of the intercepts of attacking IAF pilots. The attack was more than a mistake, it was a monumental fugg-up. "And why does Israel spy on the U. S.?" - Jimmy Why do we spy on our friends? "Is this country our friend?" - Jimmy Would a 'friend' threaten to destroy America's entire foreign polity in the mideast by forcing the USA to either abrogate our Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq or fire on Israeli aircraft crossing Iraq? Either way the USA loses, and either way, Israel would do egregious harm to the United States.
