Today we are going to focus on an event that took the lives of 34 American soldiers and injured 173 others ... the Israeli attack with jets and torpedo boats against the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 ... the veterans did not get any help from the US Government during the vicious attack ... The US Military has continued to minimize the attack as an accident but the survivors who were on the Liberty dispute the findings and believe a full and comprehensive investigation has never been done ... what really happened 55 years ago this June 8?
