Comrade Fareed Zakaria was more right than he could ever know. One only has to look at the clarification on the so-called “Charged up for Sniping” (Laddade för prickskytte) to see the problem.
Clarifications regarding cited "sniper training" article
In English: Because of the recent international citations of the 2013 Allehanda article "Laddad för prickskytte", I as News Editor feel that a few clarifications are in order.
Several websites refer to the immigration project in Sollefteå as "sniper training". This is not a correct description. The word sniper training implies military combat education which is something completely different from this.
Although the refugees in the pictures can be seen holding what looks like sniper rifles, it is in fact biathlon sports equipment. Biathlon is since the 1960s recognised as an Olympic discipline, and the Sollefteå Ski High School runs an international upper secondary school programme for elite competitors.
This is where the refugees were invited to try rifle shooting, the only element of biathlon possible in the summer. It was done by the authorities as part of their work with local immigration. I hope this clarifies the circumstances surrounding this article.

With the buttstock that low and his head rolled over to allow him to line up with the sights, I can state with all of my years of training that THIS man deserves further training in the fine points of pistol-shooting from an EQUALLY proficient instructor as was his riflery instructor...
I have heard great things about this course of instruction. I believe Mohammed P. Whitaker was a graduate.
For those unfamiliar with Komrad Whitaker's (PBUH) work, he was the gentle practitioner of the Religion of Peace who
Obviously this is a conspiracy from on high as the shootings mysteriously stopped after the framing of Komrad Whitaker (PBUH). Highly organized conspiracy.
