Jan 21, 2008 – U.S. Navy Admiral John S. McCain, Jr., was anything but admirable.... 1967, attack on the USS Liberty, in which 34 U.S. servicemen were ...
U.S. Navy Admiral John S. McCain, Jr., was anything but admirable. In this writer's estimation, he was a traitor. He used his influence as Commander-in-chief, Naval Forces Europe, to aid in the concealment of war crimes committed against his fellow countrymen.[1][2]

He, like President Lyndon Johnson and other Americans in high positions,[3][4] shielded the state of Israel from legal recourse following the IDF's (Israeli Defense Forces) June 8, 1967, attack on the USS Liberty, in which 34 U.S. servicemen were murdered and another 172 were seriously wounded.

The attack was a criminal act of war; the ensuing cover-up constituted acts of treason; and Admiral McCain was one of many high U.S. officials who, for political reasons, hastily sided with the foreign aggressor over the U.S. servicemen who endured the act of aggression.

Like father, like son.

Thirty years after the massacre, on March 8, 1997, American peace activist, William Hughes, sent a letter to the admiral's son, Senator John McCain, requesting that he do his dutiful part in demanding that Congress investigate, once and for all, the attack on the USS Liberty—this time, allowing full disclosure of evidence including eyewitness accounts of 60 USS Liberty staffers whose written testimonies were kept out of the original sham of an investigation.

The response Hughes received was unsettling, to say the least:

McCain declined my offer to raise his voice on behalf of the Liberty. He said that he wasn’t going to do anything about it because the “matter was thoroughly reviewed.” Really! In his letter to me, dated, April 28, 1997, he relied on the results of the now totally discredited Naval Court of Inquiry, which was conducted by Rear Admiral Isaac Kidd, USN. It began on June 10, 1967, and lasted less than a week. A scathing and devastating rebuttal of that seriously flawed Naval Inquiry can be found in the “Declaration,” dated Jan. 8, 2004, of Capt. Ward Boston, Jr., JAGC, USN (Ret)....

So, McCain, the “Conscience of the Senate” wasn’t going to do anything about bringing justice to the Liberty! He did, however, say something else in his letter that made me feel suspicious about his do-nothing position. He said,“The attacking nation” did not submit any evidence or testimony on their behalf about the assault at the inquiry.“Attacking nation!” What is that suppose to mean? Why couldn’t McCain just come right out, he is the “Conscience of the Senate” after all, and simply say: The Israelis? Why use a deceptive term, like:“attacking nation?” Talk about Orwellian Double Speak! I can’t imagine McCain writing about the attack on U.S. forces at Pearl Harbor, on Dec. 7, 1941, and instead of stating up front that Japan was responsible, refer to that sneaky, militant aggressor as the “attacking nation.”[5]

You rightwingers are so devistated by 2012 elections that you have to go back to your old and only talking points! The other channels are for intelligent viewers and are not playing for silcone brain idiots of the likes of you! LMFAO!

Maxine Waters, Congresswoman for South-Central Los Angeles, one of the areas hardest hit by crack and drug-related violence, sent a letter to Central Intelligence Agency chief John Deutsch demanding an investigation of the Agency, in which she said, "As someone who has seen how the crack cocaine trade has devastated the South-Central Los Angeles community, I cannot exaggerate my feelings of dismay that my own government may have played a part in the origins and history of this problem.... The impact and the implications of the Meneses/Blandon/Roiss Contra CIA crack cocaine connection cannot be understated. We all have an obligation to get to the very bottom of the origin, development, and implementation of this seedy enterprise."

While many were shocked at the news of apparent U.S. government drug-pushing, to me it was one more confirmation of a key aspect of the Franklin case. As I had discovered early on (as had Gary Caradori), the sexual abuse of children was only one part of the Franklin story. During the 1980s, many of the children, such as Alisha Owen and Paul Bonacci, said that they had been used as drug couriers to bring cocaine in from the West Coast for Alan Baer, Larry King [not Larry King of CNN talk radio fame; this Larry King is a black man who ran the Franklin Credit Union], and others.

Then, on September 11, 1996, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Representative Harold James, chairman of Pennsylvania's Legislative Black Caucus, and a former undercover narcotics cop himself, also put out a call for an investigation. In the course of that press conference another name popped up, that I knew well from the Franklin investigation: George Bush.

Flanked by political leaders of both the city and the state, James declared: "As a retired undercover Philadelphia police officer who worked on narcotics cases, I know we can better impact the flow of drugs if we stop drugs from coming into this country, arrest those at the top levels of control, and punish the white-collar dealers who try to keep their hands clean while they run the entire operation. On this occasion, we must not allow anyone to use the 'pretext of national security to accomplish another cover-up. We need an investigation that goes right to the top."

That's not a fair comparison. Maxine Waters is human.

To catch you up, Ms. Brewer (aptly named for her work on her cauldron)is the governor of Arizona. Her broom was manufactured in the good ole U.S. of A.
