It will be picked up by Google (is picked up by Google) and links you to conspiracy type merchants. Yes, there is a muffled health warning from you, but I’d have spelled it out more clearly. The page is closed to further comment, however.
Which is a pity, because I’d have liked to say:
“This story is pretty dubious – the Israeli attack on Egypt started on the 5th of May 1967 and the USS Liberty seems to have only reached the the Sinai coast on the 7th. It was ordered away by the US some 16 hours before it was attacked (the message apparently getting lost on the way?!) on the 8th May.
We have to presume that Israel was objecting to its presence, listening into their broadcasts (one story has it that Moshe Dayan phoned Washington and threatened to sink the Liberty!). Moshe Dayan would hardly have wanted the ship to move away if it already had proof of his aggressive intent, he’d have wanted it sunk without warning destroying the evidence.”
Here is the best reference I can find for the claim made by Wilbur Eveland:
http://www.palestineinformation.org/history.htm – “Message intercepts by the [United States Ship] Liberty made it clear that Israel had never intended to limit its attack to Egypt. Furthermore, we learned that the Israelis were themselves intercepting communications among Arab leaders. The Israelis then retransmitted ‘doctored’ texts to encourage Jordan and Syria to commit their armies in the erroneous belief that Nasser’s army had repelled the Israeli invaders. To destroy this incriminating evidence, Moshe Dayan [Israeli Minister of Defense] ordered his jets and torpedo boats to destroy the Liberty immediately.” -Wilbur Crane Eveland, CIA operative in the Middle East during 1967
