McCain, Bachmann Confronted Over 'Incident'

Yet again, the unprovoked attack by a foreign power on an American ship remained the 800-pound gorilla in the room...

(WASHINGTON D.C. Nova News) - Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) knows the truth about what happened to the USS Liberty, because his father was directly involved in the cover-up.

USS Liberty after Israeli attack

During a Jan. 4 interview with AFP, James Morris, the editor of a news and commentary website entitled “America Hijacked,” referenced a monumentally historical event when Liberty survivor Capt. Ward Boston approached McCain at a political fundraiser and told him he’d worked with his father.

According to Morris, McCain’s face abruptly turned white before he ushered Boston away and moved on to the next person in line.

“McCain and his admiral father covered up the USS Liberty attack on orders that came down from the highest corridors of the U.S. government,” Morris said.

Liberty survivor Tourney agrees. “McCain has been part of the cover-up and knew exactly what happened to us,” Tourney said.

“This fact has been documented since at least 1981. But his reaction leaves a lot to be desired. He claims: ‘It was a tragic mistake. Forget it. Get over it. Israel paid reparations.’. . . McCain won’t tell people that most of the crewmen only received $200 or $250 in compensation.”

On Dec. 29, 2011, during a national radio broadcast from DesMoines, Iowa that was simulcast on C-SPAN, host Jan Mickelson had as his guest Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who at the time was still vying for the Republican presidential nomination.

After a brief introduction and a few pleasantries, Mickelson took calls from his listeners. The first to dial in was Morris, who addressed the guest with a taboo subject.

“I suggest Michele Bachmann do a Google search for Cindy McCain and the USS Liberty,” Morris told listeners to the radio show.

Many Americans were killed, many more injured.

“Israel is not an ally of America. They deliberately murdered American sailors and Marines on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967. Michele Bachmann is willing to overlook that. She’s also spreading lies about Ron Paul, who is not going to put our country at risk militarily. Michele Bachmann is a neocon Israel firster. She’s willing to get us into World War III by initiating a war with Iran. [Iran’s president Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad never threatened to wipe Israel off the map.”

At this point, Mickelson abruptly cut off Morris and snidely remarked, “He’s on a Ron Paul rant there.” He then asked Mrs. Bachmann if she had any comments.

Completely ignoring all references to the Liberty, Mrs. Bachmann instead repeated a mantra indicative of her slavish devotion to Israel. “I do believe Israel is our ally, and we need to stand for Israel,” she said.

Yet again, the unprovoked attack by a foreign power on an American ship remained the 800-pound gorilla in the room—ignored by the media and politicians that are supposed to stand with our servicemen against such hostilities.

Michelle Bachmann is Jewish. That's why she's pro-Israel.

It was LBJ who called back the aircraft that was coming to the aid of the USS Liberty. It has been mainly democratically-controlled congresses (they control the money bills) that have provided the financing, and military assistance, to the war criminal nation of Israel. I dare say you could go poll "most" any elected member of congress regarding their positive vocal support and voting funds to Israel. John McCain was shot down 4 months after the Liberty attack and was a POW for many years. Sen. McCain's admiral father was subordinate to LBJ, who was the one who criminally aided Israel in my opinion, as a reading at the USS Liberty website clearly acknowledges. Rep. Bachmann was in grade school when the attack took place. I dare say if you look at any political party from an historical perspective, it was the democrats who let Israel get away with this crime, and during this time period (a few years later) it was the democratically-controlled congress that cut off funding to our SEATO allies in Asia that led to millions being ruthlessly killed. Maybe someday we will find out even more were slaughtered in Burma (Myanmmar) than in Cambodia and South Vietnam. Dominos fell hard and bloody. It was not the republican party that controlled these criminally negligent acts.

You're absolutely amazing. You were terrific, and the national exposure you give on Israel's crimes, especially those against the USS Liberty, is greatly admired. AIPAC and other Israeli agents may be able to corrupt U.S. politicians with their bribes and blackmail, but your efforts to expose this corruption is to be commended. The American people are beginning to understand of Israel's true identity slowly but surely, and because of your efforts, this learning process is ahead of schedule. Great job.
