34 Americans killed and 170 wounded by the Israeli military.

It happened on June 8, 1967 and I guarantee the news media will not remind you, even on the anniversary of the event.

What happened?

Israeli war planes and torpedo boats strafed a US naval ship in international waters the Mediterranean Sea in an attempt to sink it and kill everyone on board.

The Israelis claim it was a case of mistaken identity.

Dean Rusk, U.S. Secretary of State at the time of the incident, wrote:

I was never satisfied with the Israeli explanation. Their sustained attack to disable and sink Liberty precluded an assault by accident or some trigger-happy local commander. 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.
