    JUST IN: US Navy Announces ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle LIED, Strips His Name (DETAILS)

    According to a new report from the US Navy,”American Sniper” Chris Kyle embellished his military record.

    Kyle is known as the “most lethal sniper in American history.” His autobiography titled “American Sniper” was made into “one of the most successful war movies in history.” Kyle was murdered in 2013 by a fellow veteran, Eddie Ray Routh, at a Texas shooting range.



    Kyle served as a sniper with the Navy SEALs, with 160 kills reported as confirmed by the Department of Defense. Kyle claimed 255 kills in his autobiography. The United States Armed Forces does not keep an official record of confirmed kills.


    The discrepancy over Kyle’s record started with the discharge form produced by the Navy. This form overstated the number of Kyle’s medals.

    Originally, Kyle’s form- and his subsequent American Sniper autobiography- told that he has earned two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars. This report, however, is wrong.

    According to the Navy’s corrected record, Kyle earned one Silver Star and four Bronze Stars, along with a Navy expert rifle medal.

    Although the error begins with the Navy’s form, Kyle both signed the form and then echoed the error in his book.

    Former and current SEALs spoke to the Intercept about the controversy.

    Well, this makes me feel better about a veteran that smoked muzzies at his expense.
    What have you done for our country?

    His wife and her ambulance chasing lawyers are also scum. All scrambling to hold onto dirty money.

    I wonder what Jesse was gonna do with the judgement? The classy thing to do would be donate it to a veterans program.

    There's no question Kyle saved lives, but lying about your service is on par with homeless people who claim to be veterans for sympathy. It's called stolen valor, and not only non-veterans are guilty of it.

    I'm no fan of embellishing one's military service.

    I would point out, however, that this man did legitimately earn one Silver Star and four Bronze Stars. That alone is a remarkable accomplishment. It's also worth noting that the man is now dead and therefore has no opportunity to defend his record. Under those circumstances, I would suggest that the matter be dropped.

    Bullshit. Jesse Ventura is a self-serving, self-aggrandizing piece of shit who never did anything to benefit anyone other than himself. He hates America, lives in Mexico and wastes no opportunity to disparage our country.

    jessie had to vindicate himself..that was WRONG for kyle to disparage a fellow seal not just saying he knocked jessie down but he did it because jessie was laughing at seals getting killed. Jessie should keep every penny he gets..he was maligned and rightly won the lawsuit.
    The lie about the medals proved a propensity to lie.
