Chris Kyle responds to Jesse Ventura

The “most lethal sniper in U.S. military history” is standing by his claim that he cold-clocked Jesse “The Body” Ventura after the former politician and show-wrestler shot his mouth off about dead SEALs.

“We had just come back from our ’06 deployment when we had lost our guys,” Chris Kyle — author of “American Sniper” — originally told the Opie and Anthony radio show. “We were having a wake for the guy who got the Medal of Honor, Mikey Mansoor, and [Ventura] happened to be there [at McP's Pub in Coronado, Calif.].

“He was upset with the war. He doesn’t agree with it, which is fine,” continued Kyle. “You don’t have to agree with the war. I just got sent there. I don’t have to agree with politics. I signed up to serve the country. The country tells me what to do. But he was making it known that he did not agree with it and I approached him and said, hey, I appreciate it but we’re having a wake.

“It was the SEAL bar there in town. I said, we’re having a wake here, the family’s here. I would appreciate it if you just kinda keep it down,” recalled Kyle. “He told us that we were killing innocent people over there — men, women, children — that we were murderers. I said, you know what, we can all have our differences, that’s fine. But please just don’t upset the family.

“And then he said that, you know, we deserved to lose a few guys.”

That’s when Kyle lost his composure. “I punched him,” said Kyle. “He went down.”




Ventura responded in a Facebook statement on Saturday, denying the event ever took place“The event this man spoke of never happened,” wrote Ventura. “I have been to Mc P’s many times since leaving the Navy. I was never there alone. I was always accompanied by other people. If this happened 6 years ago, someone would have known of it before now. Certainly in the UDT/SEAL community it would have been known. This has to be news to all of us.“I have always opposed the war in Iraq but I have never spoken or wished any ill will towards the soldiers,” Ventura continued. “My heart aches that soldiers have died or been wounded because this war should never have taken place. I am perplexed over the agenda this man has and why a fellow Navy Seal would tell a lie about an event that never happened.”

In an interview with The Daily Caller — during The Matt Lewis Podcast, set to be released this week — Kyle responded to Ventura’s denial by standing by his original story.

“The incident is in my book,” said Kyle. “His name was purposely left out because I was not wanting any of this to ever come up and then on another radio show a caller came in and dropped his name, definitely caught me off guard, and I was unprepared. So, I just said yes, you know, it was him, and admitted to the whole thing.”




Kyle said he never expected the bar-fight story to become this big.

“But since then, the thing has taken off and it’s definitely drawn attention away from the book and the story that I’m trying to get out,” he lamented. “And I’m also not trying to sell books by mudslinging on to somebody else or a character assassination on him.”

“So, for now, I am sitting back, saying nothing,” offered Kyle. “I’m gonna allow Mr. Ventura to get his word out and also the witnesses are coming forward,” he revealed, hinting that this saga may not be quite over.

“I have asked the guys to go ahead and state their mind … I am going to allow the witnesses to go ahead and come out.”

  • Do you really think you could keep a room full of people from talking about this? Wouldn't some employees tell this to their friends and be all over the news? Use your head.

  • I listened to Ventura and Chris Kyle -- you can tell which one is lying just by listening. Hint: It's not Ventura

    • @Jgizzy The witnesses will help reasonable people decide. Memories are unreliable, maybe they'll have a slightly different version where Jesse didn't say we deserved to lose some guys. Maybe it was a wording that was misinterpreted by a pissed off Seal. Maybe not. In any case Jesse has flat denied this. If another Seal says Jesse was decked by a sucker punch then he's caught in another lie, this one even more public and embarrassing than the last.

    • @dorbie
      Kyles "witnesses" can come forward now that they've had plenty of time to corroborate their stories.

    • @mcphuk Exactly...if this is an establishment-pushed hit on Ventura, you can bet there will be 'witnesses' on demand, given them a short period of time to formulate their game plan.

    • @dorbie Memories of events like this don't fail you. If it happened, you wont forget it. And if you did forget it happened, the story being all over the news about every so-called detail of the incident would surely strike up an 'ahha! Now I remember!' moment. Like Mcphuk said below, when you've got backing it's not hard to produce witnesses for an event that never happened. This game has been perfected hundreds of years ago.

    • @Jgizzy You'd be surprised. The major facts like Jesse getting decked will not fail anyone, but exactly what was said to provoke the punch is exactly the kind of thing that does. Jesse's a proven liar, get over it.

  • i am beginning to become annoyed with people who claim "i'm a vet" just provoke bravado. if you PUT yourself in a situation where you are being combative, you waived your "vet" status. ventura has been claiming "i'm a seal" for tooo freggin long and it's time someone put him in his place.

  • Jesse will eventually say Kyle dropped out a of UFO our Gov sold him from area 51. Shot Jesse with a ray gun so he'd forget. Then took off on a Unicorn. Sprinkling Fairy Dust to cover his tracks.

  • I think the Kyle guy is lying, how come no one else has come forward on his behalf, the grieving family members, other seals?

  • Interesting, if witnesses back Chris Kyle then Jesse is going to be seen as a liar as well as a scumbag.
