It's the abbreviated callsign for Liberty08. Probably an MC-12W. The callsign is shortened to be used in airtraffic control systems.

This is definitely a USAF MC-12W. I saw Liberty01 and 02 last weekend as such.

The MC-12W (Beech King Air 350) Liberty aircraft is an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft of the United States Air Force (USAF) acquired for Project Liberty. Project Liberty includes Operations Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Enduring Iraqi Freedom (OIF). OEF is the official name designated by the US government for its war in Afghanistan, while OIF is the official name for its war in Iraq. An asset owned by the Joint Forces Air Component Commander, the aircraft's key mission is to provide ISR services to the ground forces. (Source: airforce-technology.com)
