Ahhh,... even worse.

I have a close relative who is mentioned on this forum who is frequently quoted as Australia's leading Zionist, I have a good understanding now of why you are so blind to the truth. It was your poor use of the English language that made me believe that perhaps you were an Israeli. My apologies to the real Israelis.

I'll bet Israel closed it's case a long time ago,... they never wanted it to be found out in the first place,.... but like all great lies, you can't keep them hidden for long.

I would venture to say that you are certainly not US born and bred you may live in America, but you are definitely not an "American",... not with your attitude towards US service personnel. I am not even American, but I would never refer to US Service Personnel as Panks??? (punks?) You are a disgrace to the country where you live.

Like I said,... at least all of their stories are in agreement, totally unlike those of the Israelis. It's very easy to determine who the liars are.

That is the inconvenience of truth, once it is out, it can't be put back in the box.

Hang on sec, even though I really don't see the point in this argument as we all know what happened but for some reason we have 16 pages none of which tell us why it happened, you have opened a can of worms in you somewhat vigorous defense of this action in that it is a crime to attack an unidentified ship in international waters.

Just for shits and giggles look at the outcry when the Russians shot down a Korean airliner that was within its air space so why do you think Israel (or anyone else for that matter) should get away with attacking an unidentified ship in international waters?

And did Israel get away? Was not Israel the first side who admitted the attack?Was not Israel apologized for the attack? Did not Israel pay reparations to US Government and families of the victims?What else the survivor wants?They want recognition as a heroes?I dont see anything heroic in their action,they were on the service and accident happend.People die in accidents all over the world,and military personnel are dying in accidents,sometimes from the hands of their compatriots.It is said.Can we call them heroes?
But the fact is many sailors of USS LiBERTY were rewarded by medals.So USA did not leave them in vain.
But there is very important moment in all this story.Some survivors (not all)
were not satisfied with the results of investigation and still present there claims to US Government,US NAVY,NSA,CIA and others,for forgering and hiding important information.Fine,if they want to continue they can continue,this is their business.But if I see that they dont have any valid facts behind their claims should I support them? Should I support the victims of accidents and call them heroes just becaise they happened to be in military uniform? Should I believe everything what they are saying and claiming simply they happened to be in military uniform? The answer is no,I must not.There are many liers,chiters,robbers and simply killers everywhere,including people who happened to be wearing military uniform.
Without facts I must believe them i suppoort them.And this is not my own position,this is the position of the US Government,which includes an independent judiciary sytem,based on the Constitution of USA.
There is another aspect to this story.USS Liberty survivors accused the State of Israel in war Crimes during the incident.This accusation itself represents a very serious claim.First of all if the case was officially closed by two Governments it is already a violation of a Judiciary system to reopen it,without all parties agreed(including State of Israel) .Secondly,new evedence must be presented to the Court,to officially reopen it.Thirdly,all claimants( in this case survivors of USS Liberty) can be punishable by the US
Judiciary system or the Judiciary system of the State of Israel,if they provide forgery and fabrication,instead of the facts.
So,survivors have a freedom in their action,They can go to any US Court,any foreign Court(Imcluding International Human Right Court) and present their Case against US Government,against any organization in the USA,againts any individual or group of people in ther USA or against the State of Israel.

Who else could admit to it, the israelis were caught red handed.
If the attack on Pearl harbour would have been a failure, I doubt that an apology would have been enough.
Reparations were estimated at $40million, Israel paid $6million which did not even cover the cost of repairs to the vessel.

They want the truth, because it is obvious that the truth is being hidden,... why?
This was not an accident though as we can see by the Israeli lies that have been uncovered. They don't want to be heroes, they just want Israel to pay for its treachery.

If I murdered your family, would you be satisfied with a medal?

Please name those who were satisfied with the investigation. I cannot find mention of one crew member who was happy with the findings.

Captain Ward Boston, a JAG (Naval Legal) Officer involved with the initial inquiry and retired FBI agent examined the original copy of the Court of Inquiry record released under the Freedom of Information Act and declared it a fraud. It is not the record I certified and submitted in 1967, says Captain Boston.

Yes they did get away with it as no one was made accountable for it.

See here is the bit you keep ignoring and this is the crew of the Liberty itself, Governments will sell anyone down the road for political expediency and I suspect that the Liberty's crew feel that this is what has happened to them, it was the peak of the cold war had the USA responded then they ran the risk of losing an "ally" to the Russian sphere of influence so the loss of a few crew members was considered a small price to pay.

Like it or not when you are on the wrong end of an unwarranted action of that magnitude no amount of apologies are going to suffice.

Tell me what do you think would have happened had the Liberty been attacked by the Egyptian Air Force and Navy in international waters?

I am prepared to bet that all hell would have broken loose.

I never asked you about your age,how old are you? I am 56,I was born in Russia,in Moscow.And what is your profession,I look at the picture here,very nice picture,is it yours?Do you work in mine?I heard there is a lot of Gold in Australia.Well....anyway let me tell you something from my life.After graduating from college ( i have 2 year Associate degree as electrical technician) I worked on different construction projects in Moscow.In the early 1970s one day my Boss calle me up in his office and told me:"You know Grigory(this is my russian name) You know he said,we got requests from the Department of War to send good technicians to Africa.I asked him :Comrade Ivan why I should go to Africa and for what reason? He said:"Because the Party want to send the best people to Africato help them to build communism.So to make the story short they sent me to Africa,to Angola.There was a civil war in Angola at the time.Socialist Government of Angola was fighting with rebels,supported by capitalist regime of South Africa.I was helping the Government to bring electrical lights to poor villages in Angola.So one day I was working with electrical bulbs and postman did deliver a big envelop to me.I looked at the envelop and on the cover it was Written in Big Russian letters "Top Secret".I looked at the adsress from were the envelop came,it was from Moscow,Department of War.So ok I opened envelop and in there it was a little letter and a photo.I started with the letter.That what it said.Dear Grigory.Department of War is very pleased of your work in Angola,helping Socialist Government of Angola with their uneasy tasks.Let us assure you that in other part of the World in Vietnam we also very succesfully fighting with american capitalists,amd helping our communist brothers VietKong.Sending you photo of pants.After you see the photo immediately destroy it.because it is very top secret document.I looked at the photo and on the Photo there were green soldiers pants,with red stripes on the sides and full of brown KAKA.There was a lable on the pants in english language and the number: Gotcher #35498274.I was looking at the picture maybe 2-3 minutes and after that destroyed it accoording to the instructions from Moscow.In Angola I was 4 months and after that was recalled back to Russia to work on very important government project.Luckely I was not even wounded in Angola.I am telling you this story about my Life,because,when you told me about Gotcher I recalled my work in Angola and secret mail with photo I once saw there.I am swear I saw this photo of green pants,full of brown Kaka with Gotcher name on them and number.To prove to you that I saw them i can put my name here Gregory Pritzker (this is my name) I understand now why America lost the war in Vietnam,I saw the Gotcher pants.

I am 62, and retired. By profession, I am many things, I have been a Professional Shooter, Refrigeration Mechanic, Marine Engineer (Class 2, Steam and Diesel) and finally Marine Operations manager for a HK Shipping company.
The photo is of me at Wally's Hope Gold Mine, which I owned and operated for 9 years as a hobby.

Grigory I have employed Russian Mechanical and Electrical Engineers both at sea and in Vladivosto/Nakhodka, for a number of years, and have a small insight into the Russian psyche, however your logic completely escapes me on this occasion, having only a very very tenuous link to the subject.

Thank you very much for info.I hope my little story brought smile to your face,if not... sorry.That what i think about Gotcher and his affidavite and all other affidavites of survuvors and their supporters.You see i have my own affidadavite,not worse than his.If you,as you said, escaped my logic you can ask me what you did not understand.So after this funny moment (I think all people in serious business need one from time to time) we can go back to business.Let me tell you this thing..... all these websites on internet and quotes from them i saw 4 or 5 years ago when i started my own inverstigation about USS Liberty,I personally wrote a letter to Mr Ennes and asked him several questions,he readressed me to another person i could speak to,So i understood,he did not want to talk to me,probably millions of people were writing to him with questions,so I left him alone.I made a website www.usslibertyship.8m.com were I tried chronologically to restore the events,based on the book of A.J.Cristol "Liberty Incident" and compared what happened at different time during incident.I would be glad if you take a look at website and if you have any questions we can discuss them here.
I am telling you these,because info and quotes that you brought in the forum were nor new to me, i passed them long time ago,and thats why i knew about Gotcher and captain Boston and McCloskey and others and what all of them said.To any person with common mind it is clear that all these people have no facts.I also realized that you never read the Naval Court of Inquiry Text.You can read it,it is available on the website www.ussliberty.org. I spent a lot of time in this forum,and I cannot go around same things time and time again.I am interested in something new,new facts,that can really bring new element into discussion.So far I saw nothing new.So captain Boston is saying text of naval Court of inquiry was not the same as original text? Fine,so you understand that in this case he commited a crime by keeping all this info from american people for so many years.right?So now the question is were is the original text that Boston did sign?Did he keep the copy of original text of the Naval Court what he sign? No answer.
Captain Ward Boston,a legal adviser to a military Board of inquiry investigating the attack on the Liberty died in 2008 at the age of 84.
So what to do next?Maybe you know the answer,about where we can find the original text that Boston signed?

Like Lt Ennes, I also could not answer all of the questions that you pose in your website, Nor have I ever read the entire transcript of the inquest.

But I have read much of the information regarding the statements of the crew which all seem to say that for some reason there has been a diplomatic cover up and the matter was swept under the rug with indecent haste. As time has gone by, more and more information has come to light as people who saw or were aware of what happened through their access to Confidential information at the time, have been relieved of their obligations under the Acts regarding the secrecy of that information, and to this end they have signed affidavits stating that the evidence was suppressed and records changed.

At least three of the persons concerned have no personal involvement, but only saw the information as a result of their jobs in the Intelligence sector.

So many lies have been uncovered, nearly all of which indicate that there was absolutely no possibility that the attack could not have been a case of mistaken identity.

If it was only one or two persons who made these claims I could understand it, but nearly every survivor has made statements declaring that their evidence was either suppressed or changed after it has been submitted, this includes many people involved in the Intelligence Service and a Captain in the Judge Advocate General's Department. These persons would be well aware of the seriousness of making a false statement, especially where the outcome of the hearing has no bearing on them personally.
