'Lone Survivor' Marcus Luttrell: 'There's Nothing Glorious About War'
‘Lone Survivor’ is the number one movie in America right now. It tells the story of a 2005 Navy SEAL covert mission in Afghanistan. Tonight, former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, who is the real life lone survivor and author of the book, joined The Kelly File.
Luttrell told Megyn Kelly that he’s honored by the support. He responded to criticism by some who say the movie is war propaganda.
“There’s nothing glorious about war,” Luttrell said. “There’s nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die. And there’s nothing glorious about having to leave your home for six to eight months while your family’s back here and you’re away.”
He said sometimes we have to preserve our way of life against bad people. “It’s people like my teammates and I that have to do that, and the men and women in the military. […] But there’s nothing pro-war. I mean, nobody wants war; it’s the most horrible thing in the world.”
Luttrell said the movie is about brotherhood and showing that good does exist everywhere.
