NSA/CSS Releases Documents Relating to the
8 June 1967 Attack on the U.S.S. Liberty
In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the attack on the U.S. navy ship U.S.S. Liberty, the National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) has finalized the review of all remaining material relative to the attack and published this material on the NSA web site at nsagov.nsa.ic.gov. This additional release adds to the collection of documents, audio recordings, and transcripts previously posted to the site on 02 July 2003.
The attack on the U.S.S. Liberty, like others in our nation's history, has become the center of considerable controversy and debate. It is not NSA's intention to prove or disprove any one set of conclusions, many of which can be drawn from a thorough review of this material. Instead, through these public releases, we intend to make as much information as possible available for the many scholars, historians, academia, and members of the general public who find interest in analyzing the information and forming their own conclusions.
