    Keep it in mind when he reports on people running for office too.

    Since he is supposed to be in the information business and his information has been shown to be untrustworthy, the answer is obviously yes.

    So what?

    Combat sucks.
    Let the liars have their fun making **** up.
    It makes such an entertaining yarn.
    Please relate the "lie" in Kyles book or movie.

    Re: Should Brian Williams be fired

    By definition, stolen valor under US law would require him to have claimed to have served in the armed forces. He never said he did. Secondly, I imagine in a combat zone its easy to be so stressed than you don't remember everything 100% accurately. Plus, when somebody talks for a living, its not uncommon for things to come out wrong sometimes. I say give the guy a break. I honestly don't like this "one strike you're out" rules some people demand.

    I dont know, are any of the following claims by Kyle in his book?:

    - I killed thirty looters during Hurricane Katrina

    -I killed two car jackers outside of Dallas, Texas. Once I identified myself as a SEAL on special duties, the cops gave me a "wink and a nod", then let me walk away

    - I heard Jesse Ventura disrespecting the President in general, and SEALS in particular. I then punched him out and went on with my business.

    -While leaving for deployment, I wallked past hoards of "baby killer" protesters at the San Diego airport *



    At the end of the day, Kyle was both a hero and a "teller of fish tales". Being a teller of "fish tales" does not negate his heroism. It just means that blind and total acceptance of anybody is not a good idea.


    *Possibly could have happened, but nobody else, either military, nor civilian, seems to remember the "Baby Killer" protesters at the airport in conservative San Diego.

    Unverifiable in both ways. Seeing as he is dead. You don't know one way or the other. So its just easier for you to call him a liar. Way to support.

    Good grief, blind and total acceptance of anybody is not a good idea.

    It is a very clear and very evident fact that no sniper (police, military, civilian or martian) killed thirty looters from the top of the superdome during Katrina.

    Likewise, the fact that there is no confirmation of the dead car jackers from a coroners office, police, or press reports leads me to conclude that it never happened. And no, I dont think the police tossed let Kyle go after they learned he was a SEAL, then tossed the bodies into a ditch sans reports.

    All this aside, Kyle is a hero and deserves to be accepted as such- just not blindly affirmed.

    I don't accept one or the other.
