In Assault on the Liberty, a harrowing first-hand account by James Ennes Jr., McNamara’s version of events is proven to be as big a sham as his concurrent lies about Vietnam. Ennes’s book created a media storm when it was first published by Random House in 1980, including (predictably) charges that Ennes was a liar and an anti-Semite. Still, the book sold more than 40,000 copies, but was eventually allowed to go out of print. Now Ennes has published an updated version, which incorporates much new evidence that the Israeli attack was deliberate and that the US government went to extraordinary lengths to disguise the truth."Infamy at Sea. Israel’s Attack on the USS Liberty 50 Years Later." By Jeffrey St. Clair, The Unz Review, 6/2/17.
It’s a story of Israel aggression, Pentagon incompetence, official lies, and a cover-up that persists to this day.
