I just finished Chapter 24 of "Enemies Foreign and Domestic", and I'm starting to think we're about to live the book.

Considering the Super Bowl is tomorrow, I'm starting to wonder about Page 1.

Too early to speculate, but I was thinking it might be over a girl. Usually the simplest explanation is the correct one.

Please read Nachum’s list and see if you still think the most skilled sniper’s killing was over a girl.

Well we do know there will be at least one person in the stadium who has already been complicit in at least one murder.

He'll be on the field in a Ravens uniform.

So, let’s recap here...

One of the world’s best and most well-known snipers, a former SEAL, is murdered at an EVIL AND SCARY gun range, and we manage to blame a vet with PTSD for it?

Within hours of the shooting, said PTSD perp is found with the murder victim’s truck, and he electronically disapparates from the Web.

Discuss.

Ever since they shot and killed the somali pirate and saved the AMERICAN ship captain’s life.
obama did NOT want them to fire on those pirates and they pushed the envelope when they did. They have been being killed off ever since.

RIP, Chris.

Actually, the PTSD reference is to the other victim who Kyle was helping. They haven’t made that reference to the shooter yet.

Check that, it was two murder victims that Sunday night in the streets of Buckhead. Ray Lewis only person ever convicted of a crime in that case....Settled civil suits with the victim’s families as well.

One of Eddie's friends, a James Saylor posted this on his wall about a half hour ago:

Please keep my brothers family in y'all's prayers, he was taken from us today by a coward I'm here with his family and we are going thru a hard time! I miss you brother ~crispy~

This may be the other victim in the photo with Kyle, no name is given. (or he is referencing Kyle).

I wonder what gun grabbers will do with it?

OBVIOUS ANSWER:

* The media will report, if they report at all, the "tragic" death of a "decorated veteran" who was "needlessly slain" at an "EVIL SCARY GUN range".

* "All the more reason to enact legislation before more gallant heroes are 'needlessly slain' by illegal guns"

* "It's for the children" hasn't got them the traction they wanted. So let's try "Remember Our Needlessly Slain Heroes", instead.

"Never let a crisis go to waste..."

Another SEAL death and a connection to Benghazi (provided Foreward in Glen Doherty’s book). Strange coincidence I guess. And you know my theory of coincidences ;)

Obama’s Passport Breach: Unanswered Questions, and an Unsolved Murder

By Pamela Geller

“Back in March 2008, the State Department launched an investigation of improper computer access to the passport records of Barack Hussein Obama, and days later those of Hillary Clinton and John McCain. The investigation centered on one employee: a contract worker for a company that was headed by John O. Brennan, a key Obama campaign adviser who later became assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.”

It certainly does appear there is an agenda to take out Seals.

I remember after the helicopter was shot down there was speculation their position had been given to the jihadis

ive by the sword, die by the sword. Interesting how none of the MSM sources mentioned the lawsuit with Jesse. Maybe Ventura was being ‘swift-boated,’ and someone was worried the op would be exposed if the lawsuit went forward. The higher-ups don’t like loose ends, and maybe they figured Kyle was a loose end.

Kyle claimed he punched Ventura in the face at a bar in San Diego, and was dumb enough to go public with the story. Jesse sued him for libel and defamation, and the case was apparently due to start this summer. If Kyle lost the suit, it could have been embarrassing for the Navy.
