McCain and the U.S.S. Liberty [from Obama's official campaign site]
Barack Obama Official Campaign Site ^ | Jun 12th, 2008 | Tony Wicher

McCain and the U.S.S. Liberty By Tony Wicher - Jun 12th, 2008 at 12:11 pm EDT Also listed in: 5 groups

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. THE COVER-UP CONTINUES ON THE USS LIBERTY April 12, 2008 — crescentandcross

When Admiral John S. McCain, Jr., Commander in Chief, United States Naval Forces, Europe, ordered the cover-up on the attack of the USS LIBERTY GTR-5 it was a sure act of treason perpetrated on the American people and the crew of the LIBERTY to hide the true facts surrounding the unprovoked attack by the Government of Israel on our ship, the USS LIBERTY.

...As we now know, Cairo was only 120 seconds away from a nuclear attack from the US Government, all for the benefit of Israel, the killers of 34 Americans, the wounding of 174 others and the near destruction of a $40 million ship that ended up being scrapped.

...Now, we come to what has happened in the past few years. A man called A. J. Cristol, a Jewish bankruptcy judge from Florida, wrote a book called THE LIBERTY INCIDENT, in which he says Israel is exonerated for the attack on the LIBERTY because it was a case of mistaken identity. The book is full of lies, falsehoods and continues the cover-up for Israel’s blatant murder of American sons on the high seas.

Blood libel of Israel and defamation of John McCain's father sanctioned by Barack Obama's official campaign.

It is a matter of proven record (http://www.israpundit.com/2008/?p=1445) that the Obama site exercises editorial control over the content of my.barackobama.com, and is quite capable of finding and removing material it considers objectionable within two days. This blood libel of Israel and vicious defamation of John McCain's father has been up for almost three weeks, so it is obviously sanctioned (tolerated) by the Obama campaign.

Now that it has been posted to Free Republic, though, the Obama campaign will "disappear" it like the Wright and Pfleger testimonials, so get your downloads and screenshots while you can.

The Wikipedia account of the Liberty incident, by the way, cites mistakes by both Israel and the United States, as opposed to anyone's deliberate intention to kill an ally's sailors. Blue on blue fire is all too common in warfare.

The tinfoil crowd is out in force over there. ...as are the anti-Semites. Quite revealing what B-HO's campaign website editors choose to leave up there.

The actions of the Obama campaign have been fully as nasty as the Clintons. He is no “Post Racial” anything. He just a smoother version of a Chicago politician, but people are sappy enough to buy into wishful thinking.

The lies start in the first sentence! Senator John McCain's father, Admiral John McCain, Jr., was Commander in Chief of the PacificFleet during this time period, so he would have had NOTHING to do with anything going on in Israel!!

...Commander in Chief, United States Naval Forces, Europe...

Does this title/position even really exist?

Europe's a continent. Lots of dirt and rocks.

Wouldn't the proper title be more along the lines of "Commander in Chief, Atlantic Fleet" (CINCLANTFLT or something like that)?

re: the left and anti-Semitism (also sounds a lot like some of the RonPaulistas)

This is the kind of excremental nonsense posted on Obama's campaign website (part of that same posting on the USS Liberty incident):

"All McCain cares about is the Jewish vote and pleasing Israel. No one should be allowed to get by with murder, not even Israel nor our elected officials. They all should be held accountable for the murders and wounding of Americans and the subsequent cover-up, especially Senator John McCain. I love our country and I want it back to be the home of the brave and the land of the free where honest Americans care about our homeland, not Israel. We can’t fight anymore wars for Israel with the blessing of our congress. It is killing our sons and daughters and has bankrupted our government, all for the sake of Israel."

You’re right - and therein lies the problem.

Barack Obama will allow his surrogates to launch attacks aginst McCain (ex: the Wesley Clark incident) and McCain will brush most of ‘em by saying “Gosh, I respect and admire Senator Obama” instead of saying “You can tell a lot about Senator Obama by the kind of people he associates with. By the way, I don’t associate with those kind of people”.

I’m sorry to state, as I sincerely agree with your sentiments, but Adm John S. McCain was Commander in Chief US Navy in Europe, from 1967-1968, and then in 1968 went on to command the Pacific Fleet. The unfortunate USS Liberty sinking occured on June 8th, 1967.

All this is only a quick google away. I checked as I wanted to post your remarks directly back to Obama’s web site, but just wanted to make sure we all were correct.

Okay, I stand corrected on that. Tell me, do you think Admiral McCain had anything to do with a “cover-up” of Israel’s actions in the U.S.S. Liberty incident?

Admiral McCain was appointed head of the court of inquiry into the incident. The problem is much of the data and logs suddenly disappeared. Sixth Fleet Commander upon receiving a message launched aircraft and within an hour had to recall them. There I believe were some in the Johnson administration hoped the LIBERTY would sink and improve their chance of concealing their involvement. Remember, they even shot up the lifeboats and the ship thanks to a crew of CTs and skipper sailed backward for 700 miles into port.

No. I do not. Clusters happen in every war. Sadly, this one’s been used by the Left for so long to promote the Palestinians and the Islamicists.

I am a strong supporter of Israel, but the attack on the Liberty was clearly premeditated and intentional. Israel was fighting for its life and wanted Washington blind and distracted.

I was not and could not have been accidental

Admiral John McCain would have had NOTHING to do with anything going on in Israel.

Even more importantly, from the standpoint of showing how idiotic this Obamaphile is, the current presidential candidate John McCain was in serving in Nam at the time of the Liberty incident, and would be captured by the North Vietnamese a few months later. To think that the younger McCain would have any knowledge about the Liberty considering his predicament thousands of miles away at the time and his subsequent years at the "Hanoi Hilton" is absurd. The Liberty would have been the last thing on his mind..

I heard an obviously pro-’Rat intelligence expert speculate that McCain’s people are purposely putting up antisemitic blogs on the myobama.com web site as part of a “dirty tricks” initiative. I find it kind of far-fetched that the kind of crude antisemitic posts we’ve continuously seen on “Osama” Obama’s site can be phony stuff put up by the opposition.

“I heard an obviously pro-’Rat intelligence expert speculate that McCain’s people are purposely putting up antisemitic blogs on the myobama.com web site as part of a “dirty tricks” initiative.”

Obama’s moderators found and deleted my anti-Obama blog within 36 hours, so they ought to be able to do the same with troll blogs. This is the excuse MoveOn used in 2006, and it didn’t do them any good.

This is the biggest bunch of crap I’ve ever seen - and I’ve followed these IDIOTS and their damned conspiracies for years and NOW it’s infiltrated all the way to Presidential candidates???

The world, folks, is a different place than I want to live in any more.

Give me the good old Cold War Days when conspiracies were just nonsense and propaganda and few people believed it. Now, it seems that someone perpetuating a Conspiracy Theory is looked upon as a SAVIOR.

Total agreement. Israel should have been forced to hand over those aviators for questioning and possible trial for murder & piracy. If their defense was 'necessity to preserve the State of Israel, then that should have been brought out.

And I always have to keep in mind, the LBJ Administration was a total group of sissies, i.e. the unavenged attack on the USS Pueblo. Makes Bush II look macho.
