On the heels of the release of the movie American Sniper, which depicts the life, sacrifices and courageous military service of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, and those he served with, director Michael Moore apparently tweeted that snipers are "cowards" not heroes and "invaders are worse."
This was followed by a storm of understandably negative reactions to the tweet, including comments by MOH recipient Dakota Meyer and others. Then, in what could be considered a cowardly response, Michael Moore (sort of) backtracked and tried to explain away what appeared to be the clear intent of his original comments. Stories appear, for example here:
RIP Chris Kyle. Thank you to you and your family for the sacrifices you made to protect your brothers-in-arms.
