Marcus Luttrell Responds to Controversy Over Freeing the Goatherds


During this post-screening conversation with director Peter Berg, retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, and actor Taylor Kitsch, Luttrell interjects to address the moderator, who naively assumes that the only "right thing" to do was to let the goatherds go.

Luttrell's comments regarding the controversy begin around the 13:32 mark, but the whole interview is worth a look.
