USS Liberty Reunion Focuses on Demand for Pentagon Action





At a June 10 press conference at the Hotel Washington, Liberty survivors presented details of a “Report of War Crimes” brief filed by James R. Gotcher, general legal counsel for the USS Liberty Veterans Association (USS-LVA). On June 8, the anniversary of the attack, Gotcher submitted the 35-page, carefully footnoted report to Army Secretary Francis J. Harvey, who acts as executive agent for Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. After receiving this report, which presents evidence allegedly implicating Israel in a purposeful attack on the ship in 1967, the secretary of defense is obligated to initiate an official inquiry.
