Those who've been paying attention know what he meant and it was not to be spiteful of a dead soldier. It was a reminder that our own government puts our soldiers into harm's way daily - telling them not to shoot back, or not even allowing them to be armed. Telling them to share the tent or the compound with people who may even be the enemy. Ron clarified his remarks for the fools that just fly off the handle and presume he just hates America. Who was around when the remark was made? What was the previous discussion about? What was the context? What kind of man is Ron Paul?

In light of the fallout over former Rep. Ron Paul's asinine statements about murdered Navy SEAL Chris Kyle yesterday, Senator Rand Paul told Breitbart the following:

“Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country. Our prayers are with his family during this tragic time.”

Ron Paul doubled down on his statements from Twitter yesterday on his Facebook page:

As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences...
