For source material today, Jamie Kelso uses the copy of “What I Saw That Day” by U.S.S. Liberty crewman Phil Tourney that he just received from the authors. Crewmember Tourney’s book joins that of crewmember James Ennes, who broke the crew’s silence on the Liberty in 1987 with his Assault on the Liberty. In 2009 the son of crewmemberJohn Scott, James Scott, published Attack on the Liberty, which Ennes has praised as being “definitive”. Phillip Tourney’s book tops Scott’s for telling the whole censored story. Tourney’s book is at #435,000 in Amazon sales. Scott’s is higher at #116,000, since it has a major publisher (Simon and Schuster). Ennes’ Attack on the Liberty is at #967,000. Books like Tourney’s should be bestsellers. But thank goodness, at least, that it has been written. Also talked about on today’s show is the June 1996 issue of Instauration magazine, which appears for the first time today on the web at http://www.instaurationonline.com.
