The fact that you continue to talk about my dead father in law is incredible. PLEASE! I don’t care about this issue. Do you want me to email garbage about your mother and father. Really James. Use your manners. My father in law was a 4 star Admiral of great distinction and a fine man. I loved him dearly. Please leave my family alone. I realize you hate my husband Your perogitive. But my dead father inlaw is off limits and in very poor taste. James i have asked and begged a thousand different ways. If you want your book…stop.

It is going to be powerful and will be sent to John’s office as well as to other Congressional reps demanding that they stop covering up for Israel’s murder of American sailors and marines and investigate the USS Liberty to take testimony from the survivors while they are still alive.

    I am also a USS Liberty survivor and of course I understand that you don’t believe a word of what you have been reading, but I suggest you just look at the facts.
    I spoke with Admiral Merlin Staring about this subject and I can tell you that there are some very troubling information from men who were involved in this that you should really look at. You are not the same person as your father in law and I recognize that, but I ask you to look at the facts and then decide for yourself. What can possible be wrong with that?? I don’t dislike you or disrespect you and how could I? I don’t even know you.

  • ET1 Robert A. Vine says:

    Phil, I wouldn’t have been as nice to Mrs. McCain as you were, you are a real gentleman and you realize that being vituperative or trashing Mrs. McCain wouldn’t do any good and would make you look like the bad guy. I was in the Navy in 1967, stationed aboard the USS Independence (CVA-62) and I believed the propaganda that was published by our government. Although I couldn’t understand why your captain wasn’t awarded the CMH by the president. Years later, in approximately 1981 I met Lloyd Painter at a brunch. I was taken aback by his version of what actually happened and shocked by the fact that our guv’mint abandoned you guys and that Johnson wouldn’t award the CMH to Captain William L. McGonagle. Johnson was under control of the Israelis.

    Dear Mr. Canella,

    I noticed you did not respond to my FIRST tweet and will not accept any tweets from me. I only sent you one. That is all well and good if you choose not to receive any tweets from me. In your statement of purpose you say you represent all veterans and their needs. Sir, I respectfully disagree with you. You do not represent or respect the veterans that served aboard the USS LIBERTY. Is it because we were attacked by our so-called ally, Israel? If so, you are just as guilty of covering up the murder of my 34 shipmates, sailors and marines alike, all for the sake of Israel. The USS LIBERTY is one of the most decorated ships in naval history. How can you diss the American sailors and marines who were slaughtered in an act of war against our country by a foreign government? Who comes first in America, Americans or Israel? That is a simple question. They are supposed to be our most valued ally, but yet, they get by with murdering Americans. Admiral John McCain, Jr. was in charge of the board of inquiry, which lasted a total of 7 days. He was the leadman in the attack and the recall of the rescue aircraft that left us out there to die and the cover up. Our ship had a 40′ x 40′ hole in her starboard side, over 850 rocket and canon holes in her, over 5000 armor piercing bullets penetrating her sides, napalm burning us up as we put over our only 3 life rafts. The Israelis machine gunned our life rafts, sunk two and took one aboard their boat. Captain Ward Boston, chief legal counsel to Admiral McCain and Admiral Kidd, recanted the sham board of inquiry as a whitewash and cover up of cold-blooded murder. Need I say more? The government of that day and the government of today has not change at all. The cover up continues, all for the benefit of Israel. We are in two wars, all for the sake of Israel. We just lost 13 Americans yesterday in Afghanistan, all for the benefit of Israel. Now that you know part of the story, this very ugly part of history, please do not disrespect the USS LIBERTY and her crew. We didn’t kill anyone, Israel did all the killing. All we want is our day in court. In closing, Captain William McGonagle received the medal of honor for his heroic actions aboard LIBERTY. If your veterans group respects anything, please respect this country’s highest honor.

    Subject: USS Liberty

    Dear Sir:

    I am one of the USS Liberty survivors, and the chaplain for the Liberty Veterans. Perhaps you have never heard our story and of course we are used to that.
    The cover up was quite well done. I have been told by some of my shipmates that you honor all vets. I suppose that is in your bi-laws, and a very appropriate and
    most honorable mission in my mind. We are very good at honoring our fellow veterans also. You see our government ignores the fact that we even exist, so
    consequently we honor our own. We have erected more memorials per capita then I would imagine anyone has in this great nation, but then we had to. No one
    was going to do it for us. Over the past forty some years I have meant some pretty gutsy people as I would call them. A Navy Chief who attended our USS Liberty
    Library dedication even thou his superiors frowned on it. We did that sir with a SWAT Team on the roof and one down the street. Can you imgine that? The pandering
    we have committed towards Israel is without a doubt unparalled. You see that is why we have done our own, because we are persona non grata as far as being honored. Maybe we could
    be of some service to you. We are the experts. I wish you well, and oh, if you want to meet some real patriots I invite you on our radio show. The Patrick Henry’s are
    there, maybe a George Washington or two. Bottom line sir is that we are the bottom line.

    From Phillip Francis Tourney (the following was posted as a comment to Cindy McCain’s public Facebook page via!/pages/Cindy-McCain/221070867922965 on March 16th, 2012 and and then was deleted just hours later!):

    Dear Mrs. McCain, I am three time president of the USS LIBERTY VETERANS ASSOCIATION. I have spoken for the crew for three decades. The attack on our ship by the State of Israel was a deliberate and malicious act of murder. I can still smell the burnt flesh of my shipmates. I can smell the ordor of the death of 25 of my mates – sailors & marines – trapped in a tomb of salt water and fuel oil, caused by one of the five Israeli torpedoes. The USS LIBERTY is one of the most decorated ships in the anals of naval history. It is also one of the most damaged ships in the anals of naval history. That fateful day, rescue aircraft were recalled by direct orders of the supreme commander of Europe, John S. McCain, Jr. Admiral McCain was also in charge of the cover-up. Thirty-four Americans lost their lives, 171 were wounded. The wounds were so grave it was almost impossible to look at them. This 45 year old cover-up must end, and it must end now. Our support for the State of Israel is unwarranted and treasonous. The congress of the United States has been covering for Isreal for over 45 years. Their alliance with a state that murders Americans is treasonous and despicable. No one should be allowed to get by with murder, not even Israel. Americans should stand with Americans, not a murderous state such as Israel. They are begging us to get into another war with Iran which could be WWIII. Who wants that? If Israel wants to fight a war let them fight it themselves. I don’t want to see your sons or anyones’ sons go to war for Israel. Go to or I am a combat wounded veteran with two tours in Vietnam and a proud survivor who served aboard the greatest ship in the world.

    Best regards,

    Phillip F. Tourney

    “Cindy, you need to support the Veterans call for a new investigation into the USS Liberty. That was very cold of you to state that you do not care about th…e deaths of US Veterans enough to allow a new investigation. You’d rather hide behind fake family honor when you ignor the facts. Do the right thing, be on the right side of truth. ” A communication to the Israeli Ambassador on June 10, by Secretary Rusk stated, among other things: “At the time of the attack, the USS Liberty was flying the American flag and its identification was clearly indicated in large white letters and numerals on its hull. … Experience demonstrates that both the flag and the identification number of the vessel were readily visible from the air…. Accordingly, there is every reason to believe that the USS Liberty was identified, or at least her nationality determined, by Israeli aircraft approximately one hour before the attack. … The subsequent attack by the torpedo boats, substantially after the vessel was or should have been identified by Israeli military forces, manifests the same reckless disregard for human life.”

  • David Evans says:

    Following is a major reason why Cindy McCain and her husband, Senator John McCain traitorously support Israel first:

    Zionist have infiltrated and maintained control of US Congress for more than six decades, as evidenced by Alan Hart in his book, Zionism, The Real Enemy of the Jews. Hart was a close friend of former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. Just a sample of his learned views:

    ” In April 2010, in his book entitled “Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews”, Hart wrote that “the Balfour Declaration is in the fact that it was an expression of both the willingness of a British government to use Jews for imperial purposes and the willingness of Zionist Jews to be used. He also wrote that “Zionism’s assertion that Israel was given its birth certificate and thus legitimacy by the UN General Assembly partition resolution of 29 November 1947 is pure propaganda nonsense” and that “Israel, which came into being mainly as a consequence of Zionist terrorism and pre-planned ethnic cleansing, had no right to exist and, more to the point, could have no right to exist” without the consent of the Palestinians, which they have never given.[7]
    In February 2011, Hart called for the impeachment of American President Barack Obama. Hart argued that Obama’s decision to veto the Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement activities in West Bank and demanding that Israel “immediately and completely cease” all such activities. Hart argued “a president who allows a lobby group to put the interests of a foreign power above those of the country of which they are citizens, and who by doing so puts his fellow citizens more in harm’s way than they otherwise would be, is guilty of treason.” Hart also wrote that “the only thing to which the Obama administration has been deeply committed is not provoking the wrath of the Zionist lobby and its stooges in Congress and the mainstream media.”[8]

  • David Evans says:

    There are many masks worn by those in high places who uphold false constructs wrapped in flags. It is up to We, The People to awaken ourselves to their games of deception and lies. That the McCains say they are patriots while declaring their allegiance to Israel, a state that purposely attempted to sink An American Navy ship, killing 34 US Sailors and Marines and wounding 151 of their crew mates, is nothing short of treason and psychopathy. Our hallowed Halls of Congress are full of these vipers without consciences. They all need to be expelled at the next available opportunity.

    Before ever again setting foot in a voting booth, every US citizen should be made aware of what is in this article:

Almost as bad as the ATTACK, was how “I” was treated after I got back home–NEVER informed about Disability Retirement, VA–The GOV. Commited FRAUD, my DD 214 never showed I was even aboard the USS LIBERTY, my station list skipped over the dates I served on the LIBERTY, from my first ship USS CHIKASKIA AO 54 to USS AMERICA, where Dr. Flynn saved my LIFE. took me 29 years of APPEALS before the VA agreed that my WOUNDS were PERM. Their system only went back to last appeal (11/2 Years. I will be writing MY BOOK in the future as soon as I can get help, as it is so hard on me to relive it.

    It’s now official – there’s been no actual shortage of Holocaust Survivors :

    Quote from The Holocaust Industry by Norman G. Finkelstein of the City University of New York, published by Verso in the year 2000:
    ‘The Israeli Prime Minister’s office recently put the number of “living Holocaust survivors” at nearly a million.’ (page 83)

    I’ve checked out the six volumes of Churchill’s Second World War and the statement is quite correct – not a single mention of Nazi ‘gas chambers,’ a ‘genocide’ of the Jews, or of ‘six million’ Jewish victims of the war.

    Eisenhower’s Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; Churchill’s Second World War totals 4,448 pages; and De Gaulle’s three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages.

    In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi ‘gas chambers,’ a ‘genocide’ of the Jews, or of ‘six million’ Jewish victims of the war.

  • James Delaney says:

    Dirty Little Secrets – the hidden, awkward origins of World War 2 – the unexpected views of four key diplomats who were close to events

    Just consider the following:

    · Joseph P. Kennedy, U.S. Ambassador to Britain during the years immediately preceding WW2 was the father of the famous American Kennedy dynasty. James Forrestal the first US Secretary of Defense (1947-1949) quotes him as saying “Chamberlain (the British Prime Minister) stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war”. (The Forrestal Diaries ed. Millis, Cassell 1952 p129).

    · Count Jerzy Potocki, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office in January 1939, is quoted approvingly by the highly respected British military historian Major-General JFC Fuller. Concerning public opinion in America he says “Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands…when bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe… It is interesting to observe that in this carefully thought-out campaign… no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia. If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries… Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps…President Roosevelt has been given the power.. to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.” (Fuller, JFC: The Decisive Battles of the Western World vol 3 pp 372-374.)

    · Hugh Wilson, the American Ambassador in Berlin until 1938, the year before the war broke out, found anti-Semitism in Germany ‘understandable’. This was because before the advent of the Nazis, “the stage, the press, medicine and law [were] crowded with Jews…among the few with money to splurge, a high proportion [were] Jews…the leaders of the Bolshevist movement in Russia, a movement desperately feared in Germany, were Jews. One could feel the spreading resentment and hatred.” (Hugh Wilson: Diplomat between the Wars, Longmans 1941, quoted in Leonard Mosley, Lindbergh, Hodder 1976).

    · Sir Nevile Henderson, British Ambassador in Berlin ‘said further that the hostile attitude in Great Britain was the work of Jews and enemies of the Nazis, which was what Hitler thought himself’ (Taylor, AJP: The Origins of the Second World War Penguin 1965, 1987 etc p 324).
