The Attack on the Liberty


The Attack on the Liberty Guest host Chris Clackum guides us through a look back to the 1967 attack on the USS Liberty by the Israeli Defense Force and the investigation that followed. We'll hear a first hand account from a Charlotte resident who is a survivor of the attack and from his son who authored a book about the incident, The Attack on the Liberty: The Untold Story of Israel's Deadly 1967 Assault on a US Spy Ship. We'll talk about survivor accounts of the attack, what happened in the aftermath, and about why United States and Israeli officials worked to de-emphasize the attack.
