Question Of The Week, 6/8/08

Good morning. I guess I should say good afternoon since I figured out what this weeks question would be Friday at 4:05 PM. You'll have to take a little trip back in time to find the answer to this weeks Question Of The Week. What was Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk talking about when he said, "I was never satisfied with the Israeli explanation. … Through diplomatic channels we refused to accept their explanations. I didn't believe them then, and I don't believe them to this day. The attack was outrageous."?

I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Monday night.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

The '67 attack by Israel on the USS Liberty. A sad event that left over 30 dead, hundreds injured not too mention the many maimed for life. Answers go begging, I guess at the time the administration was relieved that it wasn't the Soviets who did it. If in reverse, that is, an attack on an Israeli warship by America, at least the investigation to follow would have been more thorough. Do you have any theories? A trigger happy local commander?

First I want to thank you for stopping by to answer this weeks question, "What was Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk talking about when he said, "I was never satisfied with the Israeli explanation. … Through diplomatic channels we refused to accept their explanations. I didn't believe them then, and I don't believe them to this day. The attack was outrageous."?"
Yes Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk was talking about the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, and he was correct when he said,"The attack was outrageous." I feel the Israeli explanation was also outrageous.Ai ask,"Do you have any theories? A trigger happy local commander?"
We do know that the Liberty was a spy ship, probably the best we had at the time, and there was a war going on. I can not help but feel that someone in the Israeli Government or Military was concerned about something the crew of the Liberty heard or saw. Maybe something (?) that took place the same time as the attack? You will find a lot of interesting theories at http://www.gtr5.com/commentary.htm but I'am afraid we may never find all the answers we're looking for.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

The Liberty was not a "spy ship". "Spying" is covert; the Liberty was openly an electronic signal gathering ship. An example of a "spy ship", for instance, could be a fishing trawler which had hidden receivers and antenae.

The Liberty was listed in Janes; there was nothing covert about it.
