The policies of America are barbaric

On 21 August 2010, survivor and hero of the Mavi Marmara massacre, Gulf War 1 veteran and peace activist, Ken O'Keefe, said this on Press TV's 'The Agenda:'
"The American people themselves are not necessarily barbaric but the policies of America are, in fact, barbaric.

There are war crimes, crimes against humanity. What I see in America really... is manipulation after manipulation, indoctrination feeding into that and a propaganda machine that gets the result that's intended. America has lived off of war...

We can Go back to the sinking of the Lusitania, which was a very predictable occurrence when we sent that ship into the waters that were known to have German U-boats. After it sunk that the American people went a war that they really wanted no part of.

Shortly after that we had WWII. The American people again wanted no part of it and yet FDR was fully aware of the coming attack by the Japanese fleet and made sure that they would incur maximum casualties on that day. Once again the American people were manipulated into war...

The American President knew about a fleet coming to kill American soldiers, sons and daughters... he allowed that to happen and, in fact, made sure that American sons and daughters were murdered needlessly...
We are in a perpetual state of war now, aren't we? Whether we go back to the overthrow of Mossadegh in Iran, CIA crews in central and South America. We can go back to the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which is acknowledged to be an absolute lie at this point.

How about the USS Liberty, in which Israel, America's ally, attacked a US navy ship for hours and killed 34 US sailors? The sixth fleet was then called back, defences of that ship were called back, by McNamara and Lyndon Johnson.

These are all established facts, covered up. That was intended to bring us into the Six Day War and attack Egypt and have the first invasion and occupation of those lands at that time...

We have since then had other occurrences such as 9/11, which is the be all end all of manipulation. To buy into the notion that Osama bin Laden and 19 highjackers are responsible for this event is the height of lunacy. It is the most ridiculous conspiracy of all and it is the excuse for this so-called war on terror which, in fact, is a war OF terror, committing state sponsored terrorism to the tune of 1 million dead Iraqis and counting. Millions of orphans and millions of refugees, never mind Afghanistan and now Pakistan as well."
Ken was then asked who organised 9/11. He replied:
"The US government, and intelligence agencies, including Mossad. Including the Mossad agents... who were told to go and capture the event on camera and admitted to it on Israeli television. They obviously had foreknowledge of the event."
On 31 May 2010, Israeli commandos boarded the Mavi Marmara, which was one of the peace flotilla ships bound for Gaza with supplies. 

Almost immediately, the commandos opened fire and nine activists were killed. During this operation, Ken, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara, personally disarmed two commandos.

Taken to Israel with the others he was beaten up and choked during subsequent interrogations.

The picture above evidences the result of the beatings.
