Why did Israel attack the US Liberty?
#11
http://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Incident-1...nt+cristol

A fascinating review of this book that supports the official story:

"You don't even need to open the book to know what's inside!...let's take a look at the front cover photo...

The photo, claimed in the book to be provided to Cristol by the Israeli Air Force, as a gun camera photo, shows the USS Liberty flying no flag as it is attacked, with even a large splash of munition next to it. This of course reinforces Israel's claim there was no flag flying during the attack, which would then debunk the survivors' claim they had an American flag flying(and put up an even larger US flag after the first was shot down!).

-It turns out, according to a photo analysis done for the Liberty survivors' website, this "is in fact a doctored view of the ship just as she tied up at the pier at Little Creek, Virginia, in July, 1967, upon her return from repairs in Malta." The photo evidence is too much to list but here is some of it: All the vectors and even people on the ship correspond to the Little Creek dock photo. The smoke was apparently falsified - there is no smoke or fire damage in corresponding areas of the ship, in photos taken immediately after the attack. The displacement(how deep in the water the ship sets due to weight) of the Liberty during the actual attack was much greater than the Cristol image depicted, but corresponded perfectly with the Little Creek photo (after the ship was offloaded). The munition splash apparently was added to cover a tug boat that occluded a small part of the front side of the Liberty. A photo of a real wake created by the Liberty does not correspond to what was apparently a post photo wake added to the photo of the stationary Liberty. Etcetera, etcetera. Of course, the fact that there is no flag in Cristol's cover picture corresponds to the fact it is customary to take down the flag once you get into port, as the real Little Creek photo shows. So there you have it, no need to even open this book. Sorry to say, the photo was presented as evidence in a Thames television presentation before a proper analysis and debunking was done."

Cristol is probably a CIA writer. He's the Liberty's Posner.

The forged picture indicates another propaganda piece, but what's the point? It's not like the Liberty incident is a sticking point in US/Israel relations. The Liberty survivors and historians know the truth, but what sort of real political weight do they carry? LBJ's "foreign relations reputation" as President can hardly be salvaged at this point. The enemies of Israel won't believe the piece anyway. So who's the target audience?
"All that is necessary for tyranny to succeed is for good men to do nothing." (unknown)

James Tracy: "There is sometimes an undue amount of paranoia among some conspiracy researchers that can contribute to flawed observations and analysis."

Gary Cornwell (Dept. Chief Counsel HSCA): "A fact merely marks the point at which we have agreed to let investigation cease."

Alan Ford: "Just because you believe it, that doesn't make it so."

Probably any persuadable Americans who are looking at this subject for the first time. The average American knows nothing about it, and if it was a widely-covered story (like the recent Al Jazeera documentary below), it might change public opinion toward Israel.
