The Liberty Incident

Interview of Ambassador Dwight J. Porter

Following the interview, I sent a transcript and audio tape of the interview to Ambassador Porter for his review.

In November 1991, when this interview was conducted, I was still searching for the Clark Clifford Report, trying to determine if it was presented orally or in writing. I finally located the report and had it declassified on October 27, 1995. It may be viewed under "Documents" - Clark Clifford Report (1967).
