Ron Paul clarifies comments on death of Navy SEAL sniper
On Monday, Paul, 77, took cyber heat for a tweet he sent out following the news of the veteran's death.
Paul wrote: “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’ Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense.”
His comments were re-tweeted more than 800 times and most of the responses he received were negative.
Paul backtracked some and offered a clarification on his Facebook page.
He wrote: "As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences and prayers go out to Mr. Kyle’s family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies. -REP"
