The ongoing saga of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and his story of one-punching former SEAL Jesse Ventura is now taking on a life of its own.
Yesterday Jesse made an appearance on the controversial Alex Jones radio show, basically denying everything that Chris Kyle has said about the encounter.

Following Ventura’s denial, Chris Kyle called in to the Opie & Anthony satellite radio show to further clarify his story and also announced that he has now encouraged those other SEALs in the bar to step forward and tell the world what they witnessed:
Shortly after Kyle reaffirmed his story and stated that he has encouraged the witnesses in the bar to come forward, Alex Jones also called Opie & Anthony to defend Jesse Ventura and again deny Chris Kyle’s story. In the clip, Kyle also explained his reasons for not putting the Jesse Ventura story in his book:
Gregg “Opie” Hughes pressed the issue and flat out asked Alex Jones if he still believed that Chris Kyle was lying:
In the course of this lengthy exchange with Opie & Anthony, Chris Kyle offered to meet face-to-face with Jesse Ventura, or speak over the phone with the intention of clearing up the entire matter. And Kyle’s only condition is that it all be handled privately:
