Honor the USS Liberty vs. Winds of Deception

On June 8,
1967 the USS Liberty was attacked during the Six Day War between Israel and
Egypt. That was 48 years ago. Why should we care? The most important reason is
that 34 Americans died and another 174 were wounded. Our research vessel,
flying the American flag came under fire by the nation of Israel. In spite of
their claims of being unaware of the ship’s origin, the facts say something
different. The disturbing information that the White House helped cover up the
attack remains a conspiracy featured on The History Channel. Over the coming
weeks I’ll share with you some facts that might surprise you.
I met the
only surviving Marine on the USS Liberty, Bryce Lockwood, several years ago
when I spotted his banner promptly displayed on his fence that ran along a
highway I often traveled. It said, “Remember the USS Liberty…” I was
intrigued. Our first phone conversation forced me to plunge into researching
the event. This led me to writing the novel Winds of Deception.
Although the book is a creation of my warped imagination the actual attack on
the Liberty really happened. I hope when you read this story you’ll also look
up the many documentaries, books and information links that continue to try and
get the U.S. Congress to open an investigation with meaningful dialogue.
Product DetailsWinds of Deception is part of the Enigma Series I began
with An
Unlikely Hero.
Here is a little taste.

Tessa Scott

earlier, can finally remain in the past. After she arrives in Washington D.C.,
Enigma enlists her help when they uncover a plot to assassinate both President
Austin and the Prime Minister of Israel. To complicate an already volatile
situation a hurricane moves toward the nation’s capital creating the perfect
opportunity to stage an attack.

  1. I have read accounts of the USS Liberty and thus know what you're saying. It appears the government kept it under wraps because Israel is our ally. Of course, what kind of ally is gong to attack an unarmed ship?

  2. You are so right, Chuck. The part that is really sad is that our government covered it up not Israel. I hope you'll let people know about this post. Thanks for stopping by.
