RISKY BUSINESS -- Unsuspecting victim, or Lets get him before he gets us!
"American Sniper" author and Former Navy SEAL SHOT AND KILLED
KHOU.comreports "American Sniper, which details Kyle’s 150-plus kills of insurgents
from 1999 to 2009, was published in 2012.
The book’s cover referred to
Kyle as “the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.” The sniper
served in every major battle in Operation Iraqi Freedom and became so
well known that the insurgents even had a bounty on his head.
four tours of duty in Iraq and was wounded twice by gunfire."
Perhaps Kyle's reputation, and record kills in his resume, ironically may have been responsible for his own demise.
Uncertainty offuture 'employers' for a man possessing such unique talents, may have motivated any number of nervous paranoid potential victims to get him, before he got them! The so-called 'insurgents' may not have been the only sinister group placing 'a bounty on his head!'
Just my shot in the dark theory.....BUT in today's world, any surreptitious plan, especially originating in Washington D.C., is a definite possibility!
