A new book claims that Israel’s 1967 attack on a U.S. intelligence ship was deliberate. “Body of Secrets” says that despite Israeli claims to the contrary, Israel attacked the Liberty to prevent the United States from eavesdropping on its military activities. The attack killed 34 U.S. sailors and wounded 171 others.
