Clint Eastwood's hit film "American Sniper" has reignited a bitter debate about the U.S. invasion of Iraq and one of its most famous warriors, with conservatives hailing the movie as a long overdue tribute to veterans.Critics on the left have slammed the popular film as an attempt to whitewash the history of the American occupation of Iraq and say the subject of the movie, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, deserves no hero treatment for his handiwork as a deadly sniper. Directed by Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper, the film is based on Kyle's best-selling memoir, in which he expressed no regrets for the lives he extinguished as a sharpshooter in the war. The film has been nominated for six Oscars, including for best film and best actor.Paul Rieckhoff, an Iraq war veteran and head of the Iraq Afghanistan Veterans of America, said the movie reflected how many soldiers thought about the war.
