Great interview, but there is one discrepancy that an Israeli sailor apparently corrects on camera:
Udi Erell, Israeli crewman, disagrees with Larry Weaver’s theory, stating in this interview that he and the other Israelis launching torpedos at the Liberty were sure their torpedo was the one that hit the U.S.S. Liberty: “it was going straight for the ship and we were sure that our torpedo was the one that hit” — minute-21 here.
1.18:30 “I thought, my God, what is going on with our nation? The people you look up to, they get threatened. And they lie, not because they want to. It’s because they’re threatened.”
1.22:30 “Ever since then, that was the turning point in our history” — Israel attacking an American ship, and our government let them get away with it — even actively covering it up.

On this episode of DTRH Popeye is joined by U.S.S. Liberty survivor Richard Larry Weaver. He tells the story of what happened that day 45 years ago on the 8th of June 1967 and drops a bombshell of information about a U.S. Submarine being at the scene and firing on the Liberty. Make sure to take the time to listen to this amazing interview.
