Ken Halliwell has answered the questions. The photo displayed by Cristol and others as "proof that the ship flew no flag" is in fact a doctored view of the ship just as she tied up at the pier at Little Creek, Virginia, in July, 1967, upon her return from repairs in Malta.
A close look at the two photos, with matching points circled by Halliwell, reveals that they are in fact almost the same picture -- but the "gun camera" view has been doctored to hide the flag and other identifying marks. If a viewer will look carefully, the American flag is flying from the stern in both pictures. Flags fly from a Navy ship's stern only in port; the flag flies from the mainmast at sea. This is a picture taken in port in July, not taken during the attack as claimed by the Israelis. It cannot possibly be a gun camera photo taken during the attack as the Israelis claim. If you look carefully, identical groups of men can be seen standing in identical places on the ship in both images. The white "splash" on the starboard bow is a doctored image of the tug boat that helped Liberty move to the pier at Little Creek.
Photofraud Picture #3 Still further analysis of the four photographs, supposedly taken by a Mirage jet on the second attack run of the day, reveals that all four photos are taken from an identical position, which would not be the case if they were actually taken from a fast-moving jet aircraft. The fakers placed the supposed firing ring, the circle of dots, on the photographs to simulate a gun camera image, moving the ring from frame to frame. But the fakery is revealed by the fact that all four photos are taken from an identical position, not from a high speed jet approaching the ship on an attack run.
Innocent people do not need to fabricate evidence. If this were a criminal trial, these criminals would be in jail.
