Ken O’Keefe interview and the Aloha Palestine initiative

Ken O’Keefe, former Marine, (mp3) US citizen, human shield in Iraq, and activist on board the Mavi Marvara, is interviewed on
The Ugly Truth podcast below in one of his most extensive audio interviews after his participation in the Freedom Flotilla.

Ken discusses his experiences in Iraq and meanders through a host of other interesting issues. The discussion on the flotilla commences around the 48 minute mark. The co-interviewer is Phil Tourney, survivor of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty. (h/t WiC)

Ken is also co-founder and Managing Director of Aloha Palestine, a Safe Trade shipping company initiative to transport passengers and cargo to and from Gaza, Palestine. It is lesser known that Ken was aboard one of the first boats to arrive in Gaza in the Free Gaza Movement in 2008. Aloha Palestine video clips follow (below) with more information on this great initiative; Ken appears in the second clip.

Don’t miss Ken O’Keefe’s searing statement in the immediate aftermath of being released after the attack on the flotilla if you haven’t already seen it.
