A USS Liberty Hero’s Passing
by Ray McGovern, August 18, 2014

Terry Halbardier, who – as a 23-year-old seaman in 1967 – thwarted Israeli attempts to sink the USS Liberty, died on Aug. 11 in Visalia, California. It took the U.S. government 42 years after the attack to recognize Halbardier’s heroism by awarding him the Silver Star, a delay explained by Washington’s determination to downplay Israeli responsibility for the 34 Americans killed and the 174 wounded.

What else would one call Amerika's favorite ally, Israel? I see that mod 2 greatly truncated the article I posted...could it be that mod 2 knows that most people won't click a link, and doesn't want people to see the whole, brutal truth?
