Some of you may know about this, I didn't. Military leaders obviously cannot "go rogue," but how despicable is it to put this General in a position to either do the right thing, or obey orders? Reminds me of when LBJ made attack planes return to their carrier when they were on their way to rescue the USS Liberty in 1967.

You're not going to pull me into that hornet's nest again. Suffice it to say, Israeli apologists (CAMERA & FLAME for two) have been very busy since 1967.

Hi Peter, looks like the last update there was 1 Nov. 2012, but the other article still describes Gen Ham as the current "Commander" of Africom ?

Hi Peter, there is no question that the dezinformatsia artists on both sides have more than earned their pay since 67. But I'm still curious : which rotten remnant of Camelot issued the orders, and what precisely was the mission ? A foreshadowing of the Pueblo ?

Peter. I know a guy named Bob who is a part owner in a plumbing supply here on long island and he was on the Liberty and he has pictures of it all over the walls in the building. If you asked him to talk about it he gets teary eyed and will not. He just will tell you our Government let him and his fellow mates down and he is one of the lucky ones who made it out alive.

The crew were sworn to secrecy after the fact but it may have been lifted by now. The Skipper was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, but for the first and only time in American history it was not awarded by the President. It was presented in a quiet Navy Yard ceremony. After all, we mustn't embarrass our ally.
