I had trouble understanding what Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch was getting at when he referred to a week old videotape of Zarqawi “bloopers” as evidence that his capture was imminent.
Apparently, our biggest enemy in Iraq doesn’t even know how to shoot a gun, despite the fact that he’s portrayed as the monster behind the “al Qaeda in Iraq ‘insurgency’,” not to mention last year’s Amman bombings. And now that we know he can’t shoot this should make it easier for our tired troops to find him?
I mean, in the videos — Zawahri always has the most dramatically oversized weapon on the vids… surely if Zarqawi can’t clear the chamber the Zawahri doesn’t even know where to find the trigger.
Man, do I feel for those 130,000 much-to-well-trained troops we have on the ground in Iraq.
See needlenose for the Zarqawi / Craig Ehlo comparison.
