7 big lies ‘American Sniper’ is telling America about Iraq and Chris Kyle

The film American Sniper, based on the story of the late Navy Seal Chris Kyle, is a box office hit, setting records for an R-rated film released in January. Yet the film, the autobiography of the same name, and the reputation of Chris Kyle are all built on a set of half-truths, myths and outright lies that Hollywood didn’t see fit to clear up.

      • That, and the fact that his estate was successfully sued by Jesse Ventura (which I was aware of prior to reading this thread, I read up about it after having seen the trailer and before seeing the movie).

    5. I sat in a tank in the first Gulf War.
      I don’t even pretend to know what this guy dealt with during his service.

      He DID save lives (not just coalition forces but indigs as well) with his rifle. That is all I feel that I DO need to know.

    6. According to Fox (can’t call it News with a straight face) I am a soldier in the War of Christmas because I think people should greet how they want in December, I serve in the Class war against the 1% because I believe they should pay the same % of taxes as the poor and middle class, and I am part of the War on Guns because I think people should actually have to submit to a background check.
      I will admit to being a conscientious objector in the War on Drugs because I see nothing wrong with people smoking marijuana (having never used any illicit drugs btw)…
