Watch to find out how a nuclear war in the Middle East was averted at the last minute.
On 8 June 1967, Israel attacked the USS Liberty, a spy ship cruising off the Sinai coast. 34 US Servicemen were killed. Israel has always claimed it was a tragic accident based on mistaken identification of the ship. The US government publicly accepted this explanation.
Yet for 35 years, the Liberty's survivors have insisted that the attack was intentional.
They say that Israel knew the ship's identity, and that the US has colluded in the cover-up ever since. But why would Israel attack a ship belonging to its closest ally. USS Liberty Dead in the Water reveals the truth behind the seemingly inexplicable incident — and how nuclear war in the Middle East was averted only at the last minute.
