weapon skills

With the death of Zarqawi comes out all of the stock footage of the man, primarily just a recruiting film that shows Zarqawi as the Great Warrior of Islam at some kind of range, firing automatic weapons.

Did you notice that Zarqawi didn't even know how to clear a misfire? There was one scene where his weapon jammed and a flunky had to come in from off-camera to clear it for him. The cable news shows were showing it over and over. So if Zarqawi was such a great warrior, how come he didn't know something that is part of the lecture every grunt has to sit through before he even gets to handle the weapon?
