Special report
New revelations in attack on American spy ship

Veterans, documents suggest U.S., Israel didn't tell full story of deadly '67 incident

By John Crewdson|Tribune senior correspondent

Bryce Lockwood, Marine staff sergeant, Russian-language expert, recipient of the Silver Star for heroism, ordained Baptist minister, is shouting into the phone.

"I'm angry! I'm seething with anger! Forty years, and I'm seething with anger!"

Lockwood was aboard the USS Liberty, a super-secret spy ship on station in the eastern Mediterranean, when four Israeli fighter jets flew out of the afternoon sun to strafe and bomb the virtually defenseless vessel on June 8, 1967, the fourth day of what would become known as the Six-Day War...


Thanks for posting this Joe...

I was reading this earlier and it appears very detailed and accurate.

Earlier this year I was listening to a lot of the USS Liberty survivors that were on the Republic Broadcasting Network prior to their 40th anniversary conference.

You can find a couple of very moving interviews and testimonies in the Mark Dankoff archive (June and July 2007 - search for "liberty").

Those guys have had a 40 year fight for justice and were told to "shut-up".

I hope this is a start of some publicity for their plight.

A great website is :

Alex Jones had USS Liberty hero "Bryce Lockwood" on today...

I must say it was one of Alex's best shows I have heard...

His interview with Marine Staff Sergeant Bryce Lockwood - Russian-language expert, lasts approx 1 hour.

Below is link for MP3 (adverts removed), starts approx 24mins in.


Archive also includes information about yesterdays Ed and Elaine Brown arrest, Ron Paul interview and Dave Mustiane Of Megadeth.

The USS Liberty segment is highly recommended listening, especially with the new info regarding the declassification of the NSA transcripts proving that Israel knew that it was a US ship, yet still ordered the attack !!!
