Former Governor: Incident "never happened...someone is out to destroy my credibility"Paul Joseph Watson
Saturday, January 7, 2012Following claims made by US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle that he punched Jesse Ventura for badmouthing US troops during a wake for a slain soldier in Coronado, California, Ventura has denounced the story as an outrageous lie, asserting that the event never happened.
Kyle, who has been the subject of numerous television interviews over the past few days while he promotes his new book, is a sniper marksmen who has been made into somewhat of a poster child for US military involvement in the Middle East following his tales of killing hundreds of Iraqi insurgents.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 SEALs killed in Iraq. Kyle claims Ventura began loudly objecting to the war in Iraq before calling the troops "murderers" and saying "we deserved to lose a few guys".Kyle then claims he punched Ventura, knocked him to the floor, and quickly ran away.Infowars today spoke with Tyrel Ventura, Jesse Ventura's son, who related to us how Ventura is shocked, heartbroken and saddened about how a fellow Navy SEAL could invent such a hurtful and abhorrent lie.The event never happened, Ventura has never met Kyle, and the whole story is a transparent hoax seemingly designed as an attempt at character assassination given Ventura's very public recent battles with the federal government, in particular his fight with the TSA, and his vehement anti-war stance, Tyrel told us after talking with his father.Ventura explained that he has only ever visited the bar in question with groups of friends, and the notion that the story if true would not have already become public in the space of over five years is plainly ludicrous.Ventura labels the story a total fabrication and is beyond heartbroken that a fellow service member and Navy SEAL would invent such outrageous lies designed to defame him and help sell a book. He adds that it is incredibly vicious to claim at a wake he would insult the family members of a slain soldier, which is one of the worst slurs that could be made against anybody, not to mention a former Navy SEAL like Ventura.In his Facebook response, Ventura makes reference to another false claim that had to be retracted about him supposedly tail gating in California last week, suggesting that there is an organized effort to "destroy my credibility".Such actions may be an effort to pre-empt the possibility that Ventura could enter the presidential picture as a candidate for the Libertarian Party. Tyrel Ventura told us that Jesse is completely blown away that the establishment is now coming after him by way of manufactured hoaxes and cynical acts of character assassination in a bid to politically discredit him.
