Just over 50 years ago, on June 8, 1967, the USS Liberty was struck by an Isreali torpedo. The Liberty was an unarmed naval research ship. 34 US military personnel died in the attack with another 171 wounded. It is believed that Lydon Baines Johnson may have signed off on the order that was carried out, knowingly, by Israel in order to help launch US intervention in the Six Days War.
The event is and has been a controversial and often unmentioned, point in US history.
<a href="https://theintercept.com/2017/06/06/fifty-years-later-nsa-keeps-details-of-israels-uss-liberty-attack-secret/">The Intercept reported</a> on this last year:
"The question of if and when Israeli forces became aware they were killing Americans has proved a point of particular contention in the on-again, off-again public debate that has simmered over the last half a century. The Navy Court of Inquiry’s investigation proceedings following the incident were held in closed sessions, and the survivors who had been on board received gag orders forbidding them to ever talk about what they endured that day."
If you read through most news sources from the US, you'll see more and more like that making it sound like Israel knowingly firing on the ship is conjecture. However, if you read Ha'aretz (one of the most widely read Israeli newspapers in the world) reports how Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan "personally ordered the attack on the ship" despite one of his generals responding that "This is pure murder."
Israeli pilot to IDF war room: This is an American ship. Do you still want us to attack?
IDF war room to Israeli pilot: Yes, follow orders.
Israeli pilot to IDF war room: But sir, it’s an American ship - I can see the flag!
IDF war room to Israeli pilot: Never mind; hit it.
With all the above being "undisputed" according to Ha'aretz, how some people still doubt that the veracity of this war crime is mindboggling.

No, the undisclosed location bit is not a gimmick. Unfortunately, the original venue for the conference was canceled with no reason given just weeks before it was to occur. Ron Avery, the event organizer, has secured a secondary location "within 75 miles of San Antonio" which will be announced just before the event. Tickets for the live event are $25 or you can tune in remotely for just $10. To get tickets for the event head to http://mixnstream.com/ship-wont-sink.html and scroll to the bottom of the page where you can pay by PayPal or debit or credit card.
