On this day in 1967, the American Navy ship USS Liberty was deliberately attacked by the state of Israel, and much was done to cover that up. NTS just posted about it here.
Most Americans have no clue that this ever happened. Whenever a duplicitous politician kisses Israel's ass, remember the 34 sailors who died and the more recently murdered young Americans like activists Rachael Corrie and Furkan Dogan. Israel is not our friend, and we shouldn't be giving millions of dollars to them every year, and we shouldn't be tricked into fighting their enemies for them.
