June 8th is a day of deep infamy. It should not be allowed to pass without commemoration.
It is with profound sadness that we remember the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, which took place 44 years ago today. We grieve for the families who lost their sons, brothers, husbands, and fathers, and the crew members who lost their shipmates. We grieve for a crew that was abandoned by its Commander in Chief in the midst of a ruthless attack, and by its government afterward.
We pledge to support their continuing claims for justice and for a government that represents American veterans over the Israel lobby. Thank you for helping us in a struggle we will not abandon.
