Attack on the USS Liberty

Admiral Moorer headed up the Moorer Commission to investigate the USS Liberty incident. He concluded that the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 was a deliberate false flag attack on the part of Israel and that President Lyndon B. Johnson ordered the cover-up to maintain close ties with Israel.[1][2]

Moorer stated that "Israel attempted to prevent the Liberty's radio operators from sending a call for help by jamming American emergency radio channels.[And that] Israeli torpedo boats machine-gunned lifeboats at close range that had been lowered to rescue the most-seriously wounded." Moorer stated that there had been a conspiracy to cover up the event and asked whether "our government put Israel's interests ahead of our own? If so, Why? Does our government continue to subordinate American interests to Israeli interests?"[2]

Deep political connections

Attended Le Cercle in 1985 and 1987.
