    Kyle was also the guy who defamed former MN Governor Jesse Ventura by claiming that he punched Ventura in a bar for insulting a dead soldier…Jesse sued him, and the case was supposed to go to trial later this year

    I feel for his family but I have a hard time feeling much for him. How many children were deprived of their mothers or fathers because of his role in the “liberation” of Iraq? His complete inability to understand the very rational reasons why an Iraqi would take up arms against an occupying foreign army is so disturbingly common.

    Bringing a PTSD-addled headcase to a firing range for “therapy?” Brilliant move, even for a Navy SEAL.

    Methinks Kyle should be nominated for a Darwin Award.

    Just like Wade commented, I actually heard of this guy (I normally follow military idolatry stories and pop politics like I follow figure skating: not at all) because of his slandering Jesse Ventura with a preposterous tale of fighting him at a bar. (The unspoken hilarity of this is that this “American sniper hero” thought he looked cool by bragging about sucker punching a senior citizen and then running away….and Americans nodded approvingly.)

    Not to speak ill of the dead, but he also LOOKED like your prototypically narcissistic, sociopathic bureaucrat, albeit an especially violent one.

    But it is very weird that he was killed in this way. Maybe he was just so cartoonishly preposterous that the military – always more mindful of appearances than reality – wanted to kill him to stop looking so dumb? There could be SOME motive to murder him.

    Make no mistake that the military will murder their own without batting an eye. I did a tremendous amount of research on Pat Tillman, and he was outright assassinated, without equivocation, because he was more useful to the vain buffoons in the military as a masculine martyr than a soldier. I know everything about that murder, and it makes clear how the military, as an institution, is hopelessly evil.

    So, citing the Pat Tillman murder as precedent (among many other things), it is totally viable that this Kyle sociopath was also murdered. Please share updates, Karen!
