"Spattered By Iraeli Gunfire": National Security Agency (NSA) Posts Vintage Photos of the USS Liberty On Their Website

 

The NSA National Security Agency, (in years past jokingly referred to as "no such agency,") includes twenty-eight declassified photos of the USS Liberty attack on their official website.

Captions for the photos include such titles as "Spattered by Isreali Gunfire," "Ships Bridge was Clobbered," "Shock Damage Above Torpedo Hit," CDR McGonagle Israeli Bullet, CDR and Staff Confer Post-attack, USS Liberty in Drydock, USS Liberty Main Blast Area, USS Liberty Pierside Malta, USS Liberty Primary Blast Area, Clean-up Operations of Blast Area, Damaged Machine Gun Mount Damaged Signal Light on Bridge, and Fire Damage Port Side Amidships."

Here are some of the photos:

The NSA website states: "Please Note: These historical documents are PDF images of formerly classified carbon paper and reports that have been declassified. Due to the age and poor quality of some of the PDF images, a screen reader may not be able to process the images into word documents. In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, individuals may request that the government provide auxiliary aids or services to ensure effective communication of the substance of the documents. For such requests, please contact the Public Affairs Office at 301-688-6524.
