January 12, 2004 – At a day-long conference on the 1967 Arab-Israeli War historians talked at a panel discussion titled “War, Intelligence, and the USS Liberty.” They talked about recently declassified documents on the attack on the USS Liberty and the Arab-Israeli War. Following their remarks they answered questions from the audience.
This contains a self-serving presentation by Jay Cristol (The Dean of USS Liberty Revisionists) who is completely destroyed during an excellent presentation by Jim Bamford.
It should be noted that while this is a State Department presentation mainly about the USS Liberty, no USS Liberty survivor was invited to attend while a couple Israelis invited to give presentations.
This continues a long-established tradition of the US government to tell the story of the attack on the USS Liberty by accepting without question the account of the Israelis but refusing even to hear the account of USS Liberty survivors.
