I cannot speak to US complicity in a conspiracy on this incident. But, many years ago, I read that LBJ (of Vietnam war infamy) did angrily order US Navy planes to return to base when these were flying to the aid of the USS Liberty. After the murder of John F. Kennedy, no US president has dared to stand up to Israel in any substantive or meaningful way.
Clues Surrounding Six-Day-War Ambush Start To Surface In Blood In The Water By John Allen – May 4, 2019
On June 8, 1967, the USS Liberty, an unarmed intelligence ship
reporting to the Joint Chiefs of Staff under the auspices of the
National Security Agency, was ambushed by unmarked jet planes. Rockets
and machine gun fire erupted, napalm hit the deck, and a torpedo blew a
40-foot hole in the starboard side of the vessel.
Lacking any means of defense, the sailors were powerless. In the end,
34 American sailors and translators lost their lives and another 174
were wounded — many for life. Israel confessed to the attack but called
it an “accident” and a “mistake.”
