"David Warren, director for the Anti-Defamation League's Connecticut Regional Office, said his organization strives to ensure accurate information is provided to the public."
HAH! The ADL wouldn't know truth if it hit them in the head with a rubber chicken.

Israel is know for FALSE FLAG operations. This is one of them and needs a FULL CONGRESSIONAL investigation NOW.

BUDGET ITEM FOR FEDERAL REVIEW
RE: BANKER BAILOUT
--

Most Americans are not aware how much of their tax revenue our government sends to Israel. For the fiscal year ending in September 30, 1997, the U.S. has given Israel $6.72 billion:$6.194 billion falls under Israel's foreign aid allotment and $526 million comes from agencies such as the Department of Commerce, the U.S. Information Agency and the Pentagon. The $6.72 billion figure does not include loan guarantees and annual compound interest totalling $3.122 billion the U.S. pays on money borrowed to give to Israel. It does not include the cost to U.S. taxpayers of IRS tax exemptions that donors can claim when they donate money to Israeli charities.(Donors claim approximately $1 billion in Federal tax deductions annually. This ultimately costs other U.S. tax payers $280 million to $390 million.)

When grant, loans, interest and tax deductions are added together for the fiscal year ending in September 30, 1997, our special relationship with Israel cost U.S. taxpayers over $10 billion.

Since 1949 the U.S. has given Israel a total of $83.205 billion. The interest costs borne by U.S. tax payers on behalf of Israel are $49.937 billion, thus making the total amount of aid given to Israel since 1949 $133.132 billion. This may mean that U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen.

The Israeli's deliberately attacked the Liberty in a savage barrage that lasted over 75 minutes.
They even machine gunned lifeboats filled with Liberty personnel trying to escape.
Here's what one Israeli pilot, Evan Toni, says about the Israeli attack:

More proof has recently come to light from the Israeli side. A few years after Attack on the Liberty was originally published, Ennes got a call from Evan Toni, an Israeli pilot. Toni told Ennes that he had just read his book and wanted to tell him his story. Toni said that he was the pilot in the first Israeli Mirage fighter to reach the Liberty. He immediately recognized the ship to be a US Navy vessel. He radioed Israeli air command with this information and asked for instructions. Toni said he was ordered to "attack". He refused and flew back to the air base at Ashdod. When he arrived he was summarily arrested for disobeying orders.

Lyndon B. Johnson the 37th President should have been brought to justice since he knew the truth about the Israeli attack on the Liberty. This country is run by Zionists and pro Zionists don't expect any justice coming from that direction.

Never believe lying zionists from the ADL. They are a criminal terrorist organization, who routinely defend jewish criminals, including pedophiles and murderers of children. Of course they will say it was "accidental" that israeli planes shot up a US ship at point blank range. Abe Foxman belongs in a jail cell, along with the rest of the criminals in the ADL. They are nothing but a criminal racketeering organization, that exists solely to cover up crimes committed by jews.

I agree with these men that there should be a Congressional investigation. It can only help to clear this up (though there is no guarantee)- and what harm can it do?

I see nobody has even bothered to mention the Admiral's name in charge of the Meditteranian Fleet at that time..and threatened to lock up any able-seaman that utters the words "jew" or "Israeli...
Google it if you are supporters of McCain and Obama.

Why do you think(assumed)this is hitting the small local venues at this time The NYT will not carry it AGAIN...else its readership would be affected... AGAIN..

I do not think that a cut and paste lesson in Middle Eastern fractured economics is necessary here..Read the article again and come back with direct information on this attack...A blogger you will never be(like Greg Bacon)...A mainstream journalist maybe YES:-))

Greg Bacon..
Didn't Counterpunch mention the Admiral's name..If they did not..Then that SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING..right

Joe..
Indeed,they are very brave men..That is the kind of support that these blokes and their mates need
There are videos of this attack...BUT two sailors have already been assasinated when attempting to release copies...The two guys in this article have seen these vids.

Wake up for Gods sake...NO for America's sake..God can look after himself

With due respect dear chap..
Congressional Investigations entails CongressMen and Women who have relations, friends and aquaintences that were at the time involved with the coverup AND murder of this destardly act of cowardice and slaughter..

The USA peoples need an impartial cross-examiner(possibly from another country)....and keep the legal profession out of it.
Someone who has NOTHING to gain and certainly nothing to hide

Maybe Vlad Putin:-))..Many people see 'eye to eye' with him we are told..Then after he sorts that out he could follow up with:
1..The Kennedy Assassinations(all 4 of them)
2..Pearl Harbour 'Incident'
3..Rachel Corrie's untimely murder
4..The Tonkin ship-Vietnam Incident.
5..The currect $700b Bail-Out scam
6..The Oklahoma bombing
7..The US and Iraqi bio-scientists murders
8..Harvard
9..George Patton's murder
10.Skull and Bones Society(I'll volunteer as assistant on this one:-))

....and if he can do that in ten years, we could then have him looking at the crimes on all sides(3) during the second world war.

The attack on the Liberty was sure as hell not an accident. What was an accident was that the ship was not sunk with no survivors - then it would have mysteriously turned out that Egypt had done it. Who covered up the whole Liberty massacre?
Oh that's right, our current republican nominee for presidents dad.. Admiral Mccain.

Lets have a hearing NOW, oh and John McCain need not attend if he treats the survivors of the Liberty any where close to the way he treated the family members of the Vietnam POW's.

NOBODY is free of bias. Perhaps an independent and/or bipartison commission. We had fairly good results form the 9/11 Commission and the Iraq Study Group - not that all recommendations were followed. But with the USS Liberty it will be more about establishing facts - then making recommendations.

Antagonizing Israel would be politically unpopular. But we have to decide that the truth is more important than politics and then have the courage to see it through. If Israel has nothing to hide - there should not be a problem.

These parasites will continue to commit these atrocious crimes unabated until we round them all up and expel them from our country - just like every other civilized nation they have infested for the last 2000 years.

Remember, a non-jew is nothing more than cattle to the jew. They are enacted the master plan they described in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion with uncanny precision.

Their aim is to enslave us. We better round them up before they round us up. Remember russia in 1919 or Armenia?

It seems the ADL opposes anything that has to do with the truth. The ADL even prohibits investigating the coverup of the President John F. Kennedy Assassination so what can we expect if ADl opposes the naming of a small library after the VICTIMS of the Jews ATTACKS on the USS LIBERTY:

The ADL is a terrorist group, they rise up and place a word on a few well connected ears that something is anti semitic (regardless of if it is or not) trot out the holocaust for good measure and stifle any dissent or criticism.

The truth has nothing to hide, combat lies with FACT not emotion. If you have no facts to combat the lies with, then perhaps they aren't lies at all.
