BBC movie on USS Liberty

Post#1 » Mon Sep 06, 2010 5:25 pm ... SS+LIBERTY#


During the Six-Day War, Israel attacked and nearly sank the USS Liberty belonging to its
closest ally, the USA. Thirty-four American servicemen were killed in the two-hour
assault by Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats. Israel claimed that the whole affair had
been a tragic accident based on mistaken identification of the ship. The American
government accepted the explanation. For more than 30 years many people have disbelieved
the official explanation but have been unable to rebut it convincingly. Now, Dead in the
Water uses startling new evidence to reveal the truth behind the seemingly inexplicable
attack. The film combines dramatic reconstruction of the events, with new access to
former officers in the US and Israeli armed forces and intelligence services who have
decided to give their own version of events. Interviews include President Lyndon
Johnson's Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara, former head of the Israeli navy Admiral
Shlomo Errell and members of the USS Liberty crew.
