The article comments on the criticism made by A. Wells on A. Jay Cristol's book, "The Liberty Incident: The 1967 Attack on the U.S. Navy Spy Ship." This book is not "bad history," as A. Wells claims. Its impressive endorsements and published scholarly reviews refute such a verdict. Instead, this book is the most thorough study of the attack offered to date and represents a major leap forward in the understanding of what happened to the Liberty on June 8, 1967. Furthermore, documents obtained from the National Security Agency via the Freedom of Information Act subsequent to the book's publication reinforce the author's findings.
