Truth be told.

A FIRSTHAND account of what actually went down on the 1967 Israeli MASSACRE of the US Liberty. An immediate cover-up ensues BY THE US! The victims become the guilty. Simply outrageous. Yet we come one step closer to the truth. Who do you think is pulling the US strings? The almighty Israel Lobby. I suppose now I'll become brandished an anti-Semite for mentioning a simple truth. Decide for yourselves.

A Compelling Account of the Murderous Israeli Attack

This is a compelling, documented and authoritative account, told by an eyewitness of the murderous Israeli attack, on June 8, 1967, on the USS Liberty. Every American should read this book and demand that the Israelis responsible for this deliberate assault, which took the lives of 34 brave Americans and wounded 172 others, be brought to the bar of justice. The truth is the Israelis were looking to sink the Liberty and to blame it on the Egyptians. There has been a cover-up. Thanks to Lt. James M. Ennes, and the other Liberty survivors, and their faithful supporters, however, the fight for justice goes on. To begin your education about the Liberty, buy and read this book, and get active. Remember the Liberty!

Treachery and Cover-Up

This riveting book reads like a thriller, but it is, unfortunatley non-fiction. The author offers eyewitness testimony and supporting documentation to the unbelievable-- a serious attempt to murder American servicemen, by an "ally." In 1967, the USS LIberty, while in international waters, was bombed, torpedoed, and napalmed by Israel, and her life rafts machine gunned. This though she was clearly flying American colors, and was signalling "US Navy ship." The survivors, repeated requests for a Senate investigation, have been stalled, refused, obfuscated, and labelled "anti-Jewish" for over 30 years. The "anti-Jewish" claims hang false, as some of the killed and injured Americans were Jewish.Israel has repeatedly asserted that the attack was a mistake. Let's have that investigation, and settle the matter, once and for all. Where's the harm to knowing the truth?

Thought-provoking...deserves to be read by all

"Assault on the Liberty," is a thought-provoking book that deserves to be read by all interested in understanding the truth. Author James M. Ennes Jr., provides a detailed and painstaking analysis of a tragic event. To this end, he quite properly sets in perspective the often too-glibly-taken conclusion that the attack on the USS Liberty was an accident. There is no doubt that the author is honest and patriotic. He answered the nation's call to duty...he was on the Liberty...he was wounded and he witnessed the death of American sailors. Highly recommended.Bert Ruiz

A riveting first hand account

"Attack on the Liberty" is a riveting first hand account of the brutal attack on a United States Navy ship, cruising in international waters, by air and navel forces of the State of Israel. Apologists for the Israelis have fabricated various fanciful theories ranging from the attack being a "tragic accident" to such bizarre notions as the Liberty actively spying for the Egyptians, against the Israelis - thus "justifying" the attack.This first hand account, written by the United States Naval officer who was the officer of the deck on the Liberty during the attack, provides a gripping narrative of the events that led to the deaths of 34 Americans and the wounding of 171 more (including the author). It is a fact-rich retelling of the events. The author provides extensive details, with citations to specific documentary records and specific witnesses, unlike the apologists for the Israelis, who almost uniformly cite anonymous or confidential "sources."Mr. Ennes provides a moment by moment description of the attack, its brutality, and its effects on himself and his shipmates. His detailed first hand account of the repeated Israeli reconnaissance, flights prior to the attack, their careful jamming of the Liberty's radio frequencies during the attack, the obvious and prominently displayed American flag on the ship, and the conduct of the Israeli torpedo boat crews in machine-gunning of the ship's life rafts, leads to the inescapable conclusion that the attack was deliberate and premeditated.The book also deals with the efforts by the United States government to cover-up the culpability of the Israeli government in the attack. This is compelling reading for anyone interested in this shameful chapter in American history.
