Former Governor: Incident "never happened...someone is out to destroy my
credibility" Following claims made by US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle that he

Kyle claims that he met Ventura in a bar in
Coronado in 2006 while Ventura was in town to speak to a new class of
SEAL graduates at nearby Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. Also present
were family members holding a wake for Michael Mansoor, one of the first
