"Once they got aboard our ship, they just stumbled around and argued with each other," former US Navy signalman of USS Liberty aboard Gaza freedom flotilla ship tells RAW STORY; IDF responds: forces showed "professionalism" and "commanders exhibited correct decision making"
Joe Meadors knew firsthand the dangers of sailing anywhere near Gaza.
But the US Navy veteran also believed that the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) would stop short of using the same level of violence as it had toward his shipmates on the USS Liberty 43 years ago.
"I didn't think [the IDF] would go to those extremes," Meadors told RAW STORY in an exclusive interview. "But I knew that [death] was a possibility."
