Did the Russian Navy Save the USS Liberty

Here is a fascinating wrinkle on the 50-year-old story of the US-Government-authorized attempt by Israel to sink the US Navy's communications vessel, the USS Liberty in the Eastern Mediterranean, the crime "to be blamed on Egypt and exploited to permit the bombing of Cairo and the entry of the United States into the war on Israel’s side." It was, so this report indicates, only due to the intervention of the Russian Navy that President Johnson's plan to sink a US naval vessel with all hands, failed.

"USS Liberty: Operation Cyanide: Russians to the rescue



Few people in America or Russia are aware of the crucial and heroic role played by Destroyer 626/4 of the Soviet Navy during the Six-Day War in June, 1967. The commander and crew of this ship guarded the American intelligence vessel GTR-4, better known as the USS Liberty, after the attack on it by the combined air and naval branches of the Israeli Defense Force. The Zionist attack was coordinated with elements of the US Navy, US intelligence and the White House.



The top-secret plan was known as Operation Cyanide and was intended to result in the sinking of the Liberty with all hands, to be blamed on Egypt and exploited to permit the bombing of Cairo and the entry of the United States into the war on Israel’s side. The Soviet Union’s relationships with Arab countries would have been damaged and perhaps cut, with America and Israel seizing control of all Mid-East oil production. Israel’s borders would have expanded from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers.
