    IIRC, the linguist -- professional who analyzed Mr. Kyle's speech for regional characteristics -- wrote that he grew up in this area.

    IMHO, his mother grew up there since he remembers living in Indiana. Mothers tend to be the primary parent of young children, speech patterns tend to follow the mother.

    James Smith, the documentary film director, indicates on Twitter that Newsweek will be releasing the article on Mr. Kyle and a clip of the documentary is going to appear on the Newsweek website.

    Blog Dated 2/18/10

    http://bigfibber.wordpress.com/2010/...benjaman-kyle/

    Not sure about the "FBI delivered Lie Detector Tests" mentioned in the blog. To my knowledge BK has never taken one, but I havent spoken to him in a little while so perhaps this has changed.

    Can't remember if I mentioned this before. Believe talked about Ben's ears on the other thread, thinking maybe boxing.
    There was a Powell Karate in Indianapolis at one time. HUM!

    I don't recall any mention of BK ever taking any kind of polygraph test. I take this blog comment to be a misunderstanding of the FBI verifying the legitimacy of Mr. Kyles story and circumstances.

    Thanks, Cubs...I am sure you are right. As I mentioned it before, polygraphs are a big big deal to LE, so we want to make sure we are accurate regarding the mention of them...at least we can keep this little corner of cyberworld accurate for BK's sake, lol!!!

    That blog post is interesting--some other discrepancies as well: They state that BK is ten years younger than Micheal Jackson; it is supposed to be 10 years older right(?); Alien theorists(!?!); that he hails from Colorado...etc

    Apologies for this, it does appear to be an error. I've amended my blog now and removed that part.

    No worries, and thank you for coming here to let us know. I never thought the 'misquote' was intentional, just the choice of words at the time you explained how you understood it.

    FWIW, there has been some confusion as to what is fact and fiction in this case, so we have simply been taking a bit of an extra caution to clarify what has been verified or not. Just so the facts in this case don't take on a fictional life of there own. There was never any intention to single your blog out to point out any inaccuracies- or anything like that. Thank you for posting about Mr. Kyles story, and welcome to WS! We hope you will join us again from time to time.

    Hi there. I've corrected the 'younger' bit in my blog - you're right, it should be 'older'. I got the bit about Colorado from a quote from BK at http://2004amnesiavictim.blogspot.com/, where he says "I know I'm from Colorado.", so I think it's correct. Have you heard something contrary to that? Could you let me know please, I'm very keen to make sure it's correct. Thanks.

    Thanks for your support. I have a thought, just a hunch. I'm intrigued as to the fact that BK insists on the 'Benjaman' spelling. I've done a simple test to see how rare this name is. If you do an advanced Google search for pages containing 'Benjaman' but not 'Kyle' (i.e. type "Benjaman -Kyle" into google), you get 55,600 results worldwide. If you do an advanced Google search for pages containing 'Benjamin' but not 'Kyle', you get 79,700,000 results. This tells us that, as a rough guide, the 'Benjamin' is about 1400 times more common as a name than 'Benjaman' - it's therefore a very rare name, and I wonder therefore if he is slightly wrong in his memory of it. Perhaps he is actually a Ben Jarman? ... What do you think? It seems to me that it would be a mistake not to investigate this possibility.

    He could also be a Benjamin Allan, and not a Benjamin Allen or Alin, or it's possible Benjaman was a last name of a possible wife or mother, or name of his father or child. jmho.
