54. Eyewitness account from Grace Halsell who worked in LBJ White House
Hi, I am new here, have been reading here for about a week. The Liberty is something I know about. Grace Halsell worked in the White House at the same time as fellow Texan, Bill Moyers. She was an author-journalist who died in 2000. Years ago she was famous for her book "Soul Sister" about when she lived as a black woman after having a dermatologist make her skin dark. She was quite a humanitarian and was in great demand as a speaker around the country. There was no taint on her reputation until she became concerned about the Middle East. She wrote a book called "Journey to Jerusalem" in 1981 that was about her visits and conversations with both Israelis and Palestinians. After that, she was smeared as anti-semitic, and her career was greatly damaged, even though all she had done was portray some Palestinians as people with their own side of the story. I write about her especially fondly because I met her once.

Here is a link to her account of what happened the day The Liberty was attacked:
