Not at 'Liberty' to Discuss?

And speaking of the PBS special "Six Days in June," how do you discuss the diplomatic tensions among Israel, the Arab nations, the Soviet Union, and especially the United States, without once mentioning the USS Liberty incident? Is it because as a case of mistaken identity (allegedly) it was mostly just beside the point? Or is it a case of the filmmakers feeling there are some things its viewers - even PBS viewers - are better off not having to think about?

For more reading on this bizarre and tragic incident, just Google on "USS Liberty."

Perhaps the fund-raising department at PBS had some input?

I've never seen any mention of it before in a BBC program, but the BBC News website is covering the controversy, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary:

Not unsuprisingly, the 'tragic accident' side are given the last word.
