The real story of one of the most explosive but hidden secrets in U.S. history, one that touches on everything from critical military history to the US.- Israeli relationship and the enigmatic, often-psychotic and deluded 36th president, has never been previously told. This book will be the first to explore the fact that a sitting U.S. president, who was being severely attacked for his mishandling of his Vietnam War -- especially, as he was very much aware, by his Jewish constituents -- had collaborated with Israeli leaders in the creation of a plan for a war between them and their Arab neighbors that would ensure victory for Israel, including the acquisition of additional lands and a strengthening of their relationship with the United States. This book will finally identify the real cause of the attack on a U.S. Naval ship, an act that would be blamed on Egypt as a way to justify a U.S. retaliation on that country with the specific goal of removing its president, Gamal Abdel Nasser, who President Johnson had come to hate because he had deserted the U.S. as he embraced the USSR's orbit. When the planned series of Israeli provocations against Egypt and Syria increased to higher levels of intensity, it caused the scheduled date for the start of the war (June 15, 1967) to be moved up by ten days. This resulted in the plan being seriously impacted because the key part could not be accomplished by the new timeline: That the sacrificial ship, the USS Liberty, had to be moved 6,000 miles into position; by the time it arrived the war was nearly over. The botched plan was still executed, however the ship refused to sink even after being hit by a torpedo, therefore the planned U.S. attack had to be cancelled and a massive cover-up invoked, which included severe threats for the crewmembers to keep their lips sealed.. That cover-up is still in place, yet it is so tattered and worn, and so completely exposed, that the truth can finally be told and the real story of this event will finally be revealed. While much of this story was described in the author's previous book, LBJ: From Mastermind to The Colossus, the new book, written largely by the survivors themselves
