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 Israels blatant murder of American sons on the high seas.

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.
Great catch, as usual! I would relay this information to the McCain campaign.
The Obama campaign joins the White Nationalist crowd....Will Liberal Jews in America get it....Not a chance?
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.
If this does not get Senator McCain fighting back I don't think anything will .
Vet, since when have facts gotten in the way of the lies generated by the Obama-lama-ding-dong campaign and their eager philosophical brown shirt supporters and sycophants in the media?
“This is not the Obama Campaign that I know.” — Hussein Obama
He will not fight, he is too civilized(RINOized)
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)?
The radical left is top heavy with anti-Semites.
This is not the Obama Campaign that I know. Barak Hussein
There, that's better.
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.
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.
