Operation Cyanide

Full article: Rated 4/5 Operation Cyanide

On April 7, 1967, Walt Rostow (National Security Advisor), Ambassador Foy Kohler (Deputy Under Secretary of State), Cyrus Vance (Deputy Secretary of Defense), and Admiral Rufus Taylor (CIA Deputy Chief) met to discuss Operation Cyanide. Over twenty years later, officials discovered documents in the Johnson Library. One of those documents, dated April 10, 1967, stamped – SECRET – EYES ONLY pertained to Operation Cyanide, the plan for the destruction of the USS Liberty. They “sanitized” that document in December 1988.[1]
