USS Liberty: Reviewing Various Myths...

A most-excellent site which debunks many of the tall tales which have been repeated about this incident.

I'm quite certain that you honestly believe in the purposes of your advocacy... And I am definitely opposed to banishment ~ your mere presence is a testimony to the value of this forum... Your absence would suggest that we are wasting our time here...

It's not most-excellent. One page ends with, Again, this misrepresentation by Bamford is but one example.

The page is itself a misrepresentation.  The author, complaining about Bamford not citing sources, writes:

First Bamford wants the reader to believe that the U.S. Navy's Court of Inquiry describes Liberty being "buzzed" by low-flying IAF reconnaissance aircraft throughout much of the morning.  Nonsense.

Nonsense?  Bamford was repeating eyewitness testimony. No one disputes the fact that the Israelis were buzzing Liberty before they attacked. 

an aerial SIGINT ferret platform is a highly valued asset and would not be risked going anywhere near a supposed "target" (low-flying or not) without armed support

The Israeli pilots needed no armed support because there was no risk buzzing an American surveillance ship flying the Stars & Stripes.

Your debunk site is bunk.
