Joan Mellen on the USS Liberty attack

Joan Mellen sends word she is writing a book about the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967. I recently posted about James Angleton’s role in the incident.

Joan Mellen on LBJFred, a faithful reader, adds that Joan’s last book Faustian Bargains examined some of the most deceitful episodes in the career of Lyndon Johnson. Along the way she dismantles a persistent JFK myth: the story of “the Mac Wallace fingerprint.”

I don’t agree with everything Joan writes but I always learn something new and intriguing from her books.
