“It’s time to open the windows and introduce a breath of fresh air. Lyndon B. Johnson is gone and so is his Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, both of whom left the USS Liberty to its fate. But there are many survivors who are still looking for answers. It is time to provide what they need and give them peace.” — Philip Giraldi



I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN






WELL THE TIME HAS FINALLY COME, FOR THE STORY TO BE TOLD,
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LISTENED TO–A LONG TIME AGO.
IN 1967, ON THE 8TH DAY OF JUNE–CAME THE ATTACK OF THE LIBERTY,
AND THE NEEDLESS LOSS OF MANY OF HER CREW.

CHORUS:
AND THE LIBERTY FELL, LIKE A WOUNDED AND DYING LAMB;
THE MEN AND THEIR LIVES BETRAYED, AND THEIR SOULS WERE SURELY DAMNED.
AND ALL THE FEAR, AND THE DEATH, AND THE PAIN, WILL NEVER DEPART ME,
I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN, ILL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN, I’LL HERE THE BOMBS AGAIN.

THEY SAID THAT ISRAELI FORCES KNEW NOT OF THE LIBERTY’S TRUE IDENTITY,
AND SO THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HER SERENITY.
THEY ATTACKED THE SILENT SHIP, MAKING A FORTY-FOOT HOLE IN HER STARBOARD,
KILLING THIRTY-FOUR, AND WOUNDING ALMOST TWO HUNDRED MORE;
THEIR JETS SENDING DOWN MERCILESS NAPALM,
IT LOOKED LIKE A DEVIL’S STARWAR.

CHORUS:
AND THE LIBERTY FELL, LIKE A WOUNDED AND DYING LAMB;
THE MEN AND THEIR LIVES BETRAYED, AND THEIR SOULS WERE SURELY DAMNED.
AND ALL THE FEAR, AND THE DEATH, AND THE PAIN, WILL NEVER DEPART ME,
I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN. I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN; I’LL HEAR THE BOMBS AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN…
