On June 8, 1967, the U.S.S. Liberty, then the world's most sophisticated intelligence-gathering ship, came under attack in the eastern Mediterranean. After a two-hour attack by planes and torpedo boats, 70 percent of its 294-man crew were either dead or wounded. The attack was launched by a friendly country, Israel, which three days earlier had begun its six-day war with Egypt and was preparing to invade Syria the next day.

        "The evidence was clear. Both Adm. Kidd and I believed with certainty that this attack, which killed 34 American sailors
        and injured 172 others, was a deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew. I am certain that the
        Israeli pilots that undertook the attack, as well as their superiors who had ordered the attack, were aware that the ship
        was American."
