Do you think it's OK to call Chris Kyle a mass murderer?

Chris Kyle was a Navy Seal, employed by and instructed by the U S A, directly or indirectly. He was doing the job he was given and protected unknown numbers of the U S military, and evidently "HE WAS GOOD AT IT". Chris probably never even saw the faces, he just knew "they were the enemy". Want to be angry about Kyle being a "mass murderer" then complain about it, but remember, the buck stops at the "COMMANDER IN CHIEF"
He compared him to a notorious serial killer.
Writer Max Blumenthal, formerly of Media Matters for America and the Daily Beast, believes decorated Navy SEAL “American Sniper” Chris Kyle was a mass-murderer – no better than a convicted serial killer.
“I haven’t seen American Sniper, but correct me if I’m wrong: An occupier mows down faceless Iraqis but the real victim is his anguished soul,” Blumenthal wrote on Twitter, Christmas Day.
Blumenthal doubled-down the next day, comparing the deceased Kyle to John Lee Malvo who murdered 10 people in the Washington D.C. area in 2002.
Kyle’s friend and “American Sniper” co-author   Scott McEwen defended his fallen friend on Fox News.
“Chris Kyle was a defender of our troops […] and Chris was always and should be known as one who saved lives of the United States military and brought them back to this country, and to lose sight of that the way Blumenthal has done here is completely absurd,” McEwen said.
Fox News once again picked up on the story when Fox and Friends host Elizabeth Hasselback criticized Blumenthal on Tuesday morning.
Blumenthal shot back later on in the morning, alleging that Kyle could be a good recruiting tool for the Islamic State.
In his 2012 book, “American Sniper,” Kyle recounted what he tells people when they ask him how he could kill so many people.
“Another question people ask a lot: Did it bother you killing so many people in Iraq? I tell them, ‘No.’ And I mean it. The first time you shoot someone, you get a little nervous,”Kyle wrote.
“You think, can I really shoot this guy? Is it really okay? But after you kill your enemy, you see it’s okay. You say, Great. You do it again. And again. You do it so the enemy won’t kill you or your countrymen. You do it until there’s no one left for you to kill. That’s what war is.”
