US: The USS Liberty episode

Virginia Abernethy called our attention to "Dead in the Water: 36th Anniversary of the Attack on the USS Liberty" by Mike Ewens. Ed Jajko says: "Dead in the Water" includes small segments of the home movies made by Liberty crew member and survivor Ronald Kukal, from his collection that I acquired for the Hoover Institution Archives. I was present at the filming of parts of "Dead in the Water," at last year's reunion of the Liberty survivors in Pensacola Beach, and to my surprise appear briefly in the footage shot during the memorial service for those killed in the attack. There is another film on the USS Liberty, "History Undercover: Cover-up: the Attack on the USS Liberty," Information about this film and on how to purchase a copy is available at".
