June 5-10, 1967 - The "Six-Day War"
Also known as the 1967 Arab-Israeli War or the Third Arab-Israeli War, was fought between June 5 and June 10, 1967, by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt [known then as the United Arab Republic (UAR)], Jordan, and Syria. At the war's end, Israel had seized the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria. 
USS Liberty, 1964-1970
The USS Liberty was an unarmed technical research ship used to gather intelligence by intercepting electronic communications. During the "Six-Day War" between Israel and several Arab nations, she was sent to collect electronic intelligence in the eastern Mediterranean off the coast of the Sinai Peninsula. Curiously, no armed support vessels were sent to protect the Liberty. As always, an American flag was prominently flying at mast.
Thursday, June 8, 1967 - 5-6 am
The morning of the attack, on at least 9 separate occasions Israeli planes flew out from the Sinai Peninsula to investigate the ship. USS Liberty survivors recall the planes circling the ship at least 12 times, and identified the aircraft as Israeli. The sailors aboard are not alarmed, and are confident their "ally" has identified them as a U.S. ship.
The attack begins
Around 2pm, the Israelis attack the Liberty with unmarked Mirage jets, launching rockets, strafing the ship with cannon fire, and dropping napalm on the deck. Despite this attempt to conceal their identity, the sailors on board the Liberty know their attackers are the Israelis.
Israelis jam U.S. communication frequencies
Each nation's naval fleet uses a specific different frequency. In order to jam U.S. communications, the Israelis must have known what frequencies the U.S. were using, and therefore that it was a U.S. ship.
'Retaliation' against Egypt is ordered
The Liberty's S.O.S. message was picked up by the U.S. 6th fleet patrolling 400 miles west in the Mediterranean. Nuclear-armed A-4 bombers are launched from the USS America aircraft carrier. A nuclear strike had been ordered against Egypt. The U.S. embassy in Cairo was notified that an attack was coming. A few minutes later, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara from the Pentagon orders the aircraft recalled.
McNamara denies permission to launch rescue aircraft
Defense Secretary McNamara orders the 6th Fleet Admiral to not launch any aircraft to help the Liberty.
President Johnson confirms McNamara's order
The Admiral challenges McNamara's order to not launch rescue aircraft, and the President comes on the line and talks directly to the Admiral. Johnson tells the 6th Fleet commander that he "doesn't give a damn if the ship sinks. We're not going to embarrass an ally."
The attack on the Liberty continues
While rescue aircraft are launched and then recalled, the USS Liberty is still under attack by Israeli torpedo boats. The Liberty is hit by a torpedo on the starboard side, opening a large hole in the hull, and lists 10 degrees. The sailors prepare to abandon ship. The torpedo boats machine gun life rafts, demonstrating intent to leave no survivors. Though severely damaged, Liberty's crew kept her afloat, and she was able to leave the area under her own power.
The Aftermath - 34 U.S. sailors dead, 173 wounded
In all, thirty-four men were killed in the attacks and over 170 wounded. Israel subsequently apologized for the incident, explaining that its air and naval forces had mistaken the Liberty for a much smaller Egyptian Navy ship.
In a signed affidavit, retired Capt. Ward Boston said President Johnson and Defense Secretary McNamara ordered those heading the Navy's inquiry into the Liberty attack to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary." 
Captain of Liberty believed attack was deliberate
The Captain of the USS Liberty, William McGonagle, after years of silence, finally came forward near the end of his life with his belief that the attack was intentional, and stated so publicly in 1997 in Arlington National Cemetary on the 30th anniversary of the attack. Shortly before he died in March 1999, he sent a letter to President Clinton urging him to acknowledge that the Liberty attack was deliberate.
"Operation Cyanide" - USS Liberty attack part of elaborate plan to attack Egypt
The plan to attack the Liberty was hatched by American and Israeli intelligence, carried out with the foreknowledge of high-level people in the U.S. Government, and part of Operation Cyanide, a plan for the U.S. invasion of Soviet-backed Egypt and the overthrow of the Egyptian President Abdel Nasser. The intent was to sink the Liberty and kill all those aboard, so that Egypt could be blamed.
2007 - Declassified intercepted Israeli pilot communications prove the Israelis knew they were attacking an American ship
In the tapes, Israeli ground control knows the target ship is American and asks the pilots to confirm the target. Ground control instructs the pilots to sink the ship and leave no survivors. Some Israeli pilots were reluctant to attack the Liberty, calling to Israeli ground control and asking 'This is an American ship. Do you still want us to attack?' And ground control repied, 'Yes, follow orders.' 
Survivors demand justice
Despite orders to not talk to anyone about the incident under threat of court-martial, USS Liberty survivors have been demanding justice and a real investigation for the last 43 years, strongly insisting the attack was deliberate and that there has been a cover-up.
2002- BBC Documentary "Dead in the Water"
An excellent documentary that provides overwhelming evidence, including testimony from survivors of the USS Liberty and others, that the attack was intentional. A 'must see' (below).
"Dead in the Water"
A bungled false flag attempt
One of the most stunning and defining events in American history and the 20th Century, demonstrating the absolute Jewish-Zionist control over the U.S. Government, and the use of "false-flag" attacks. Because the Liberty did not sink after two hours of attack, the plan for invasion of Egypt was quickly reversed, and Israel "apologized" for the case of "mistaken identity", and a cover-up was put into place. The jewish plans for world conflagration and WW3 would have to wait, being kicked off by the false flag of 9/11.
