    Congress launches Medal of Honor campaign for ĎAmerican Sniperí Chris Kyle

    There it is.

    The Empire needs inspirational heroes.

    Not unlike poor old Horst Wessel, shot in the face, a martyr for the State

    A Texas congressman introduced a bill Thursday that would ask the president to posthumously award the Medal of Honor to Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL whose life was chronicled in the movie “American Sniper.”

    Rep. Roger Williams, Texas Republican, said Kyle should receive the Medal of Honor for his actions during Operation Iraqi Freedom that saved “countless American lives.”

    “There is no doubt that this true American hero is worthy of our nation’s highest military honor,” Mr. Williams said in a statement. “While the Medal of Honor will not bring back a husband, father, son and a model Texan, we owe Chris Kyle and his family a great deal of gratitude for his relentless devotion to his country.”

    Kyle is credited with being the deadliest sniper in American history. He was killed two years ago when a veteran he brought to a gun range who was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder turned the gun on Kyle. The veteran, Eddie Ray Routh, was found guilty earlier this week and sentenced to life in prison.

    The Medal of Honor must be awarded by the president, but there is historical precedent for members of Congress offering legislation to encourage the president to award the medal to certain individuals, Mr. Williams‘ office said in a statement.

    Among the hall of psychopathic killers, he does deserve a place of honor. I support this.

    Smedley Butler? Yes, twice.
    Kyle Carpenter? Yes
    Roy Benavidez? Holy crap, Yes.
    Chris Kyle? No

    My 0.02, most likely in the minority.

    I wonder how many other Medal of Honor recipients have been homicidal sociopaths.

    Oh dear lord this congressman from Texas is mentally ill when he stated that he should receive the Medal of Honor for his actions during Operation Iraqi Freedom that saved “countless American lives.” ?

    Both Rep. Williams and Rep. Barton (co-sponsor of HR 1094) have never served and have no clue of the rules surrounding the MoH process. Kyle will not get one because a superior officer did not recommend him for one at any time following any of the operations that he took part in. This isn't a matter of "lost paperwork" that was involved in the previous precedents of Congressional intervention that Rep. Williams cites.

    This is two Texas congresscritters dragging the corpse of a dead man around to build political capital in their districts.

They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are but theyre never the ones to fight or to die." - Jackson Browne Lives In The Balance

    Why won't Congress honor Chris Kyle by launching an investigation into his death?

    Reason number 786 why I will never be President: I would give the MoH to Chelsea Manning.
