Kenneth O’Keefe, a former U.S. Marine, has been making headlines for his straightforward speech about the West’s involvement in the war on terror, especially when it comes to the war against ISIS.
What has shocked the most people, who watch O’Keefe’s interviews on news outlets, is not necessarily his straightforwardness but the 180-degree paradigm shift that his statements reveal.
According to O’Keefe, who has appeared on news channels such as RT, PressTV and is often quoted on Sputniknews.com and RT.com, the name ISIS, which the mainstream media say is the Islamic State, is in reality more like the Israeli Secret Intelligence Services.
O’keefe says that is outrageous to think that ISIS has turned into what it is today all by itself, just as it is absurd to believe that Al-Qaeda became a household name because of its own merits.
“There was no Al-Qaeda in Iraq prior to the U.S. invading that country in 2013,” says O’Keefe. Seemingly, ISIS is also a creation of the West.
The so-called Islamic State is now being supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, both American proxy governments in the Middle East region.
“I hope [the Paris attacks] are a wake-up call for all of us to realize that we are ISIS,” explained O’Keefe on PressTV. Western governments are in bed with Saudi Arabia, who is the primary funder of ISIS along with Qatar and other Gulf states.”
O’Keefe says that the United States and his allies in the region are not only providing political and military assistance to Saudi Arabia while it slaughters innocent people in Yemen but also providing the cover for ISIS in Syria and other parts of the world.
“I believe that is beyond any doubt for any sensible person to realize that not only is the United States providing the financial cover, political cover and military cover to these terrorists through our proxies, but we are also, in a purely technical sense, providing training to these people along with Turkey.”
According to O’keefe, Turkey has also been serving as a vessel for ISIS militants to get into Syria.
Earlier this year, video footage surfaced where Turkish forces were providing transport means to ISIS terrorists to get into Syria. The same has been happening in Jordan, another American ally that has also been providing cover for ISIS forces.
“As long as we are all fighting each other, as long as we are not trusting each other, as long as we are simply being played as pawns, then they can maintain this tyrannical system of never ending war,” warned O’Keefe.
This former U.S. Marine was discharged from his position during the Gulf War for speaking against the abuses being committed by the American government and the American military.
O’Keefe also attempted to renounce his American citizenship for the same reason he decided to speak up in the early 1990s.
“What is happening in Paris is us. We are responsible for our corrupt government and for all of these policies.”
O’Keefe added that even if the terrorists are working directly for ISIS, Mossad, Al-Qaeda and other terror organizations, and even if they carried out the attacks in an organic way, the kind of mayhem that the attack cause is exactly what western governments want, because it favors the enactment of the same policies that resulted from the 9/11 attacks, the 7/7 attacks and the ones recently adopted by the French government.
O’Keefe is currently a double citizen of Ireland and Palestine.
