For anyone still in doubt and bewildered by our foreign policies and choice of "allies" this may help. I was stationed with the USCG in Turkey at the time.

Israel attacks America to cover-up its War Crimes
Due to the fact that the entire mainstream media (MSM) is owned by the Israeli zionists, the American public is not aware that Israel is the biggest threat to American national security, and many believe that Israel is in fact at war with America and has colonized and occupied it just like the Palestine. The apartheid state of Israel's unprovoked attack on The USS Liberty, the assassination of a true human rights & peace activist, the honorable Rachel Corrie are just a few examples of Israel's war against America.
Would the US allow its citizens to be attacked and killed by a foreign power and then cover up the facts?
It would - and it has.
On June 8th, 1967, the Israeli military attacked and attempted to sink the USS Liberty as she sailed under a US flag in international waters. Thirty-four US servicemen were killed and 171 injured by a well-coordinated, multi-wave assault which included the use of napalm.
The Israeli military called the attack a "tragic mistake" and then-President Lyndon Johnson agreed it was nothing more. Sailors who were aboard the ship were warned not to disclose the facts of what happened that day under penalty of court martial - or worse.
