Somewhere around the second or third time he used the oxymoron "air assault infiltration", my confidence in his analytic ability started diminishing rapidly. It's apparent that his "analysis" is centered around whatever he personally struggled with (I'll boldly presume that he found sling-loading to be the toughest knowledge to get through his skull).
He also seem oblivious to the requirements to be met for progressing between stages of Airborne School, and gives little or no value to the fact that airborne training is focused around building the muscle memory to react correctly when things don't go right during the not-that-many seconds of what could be the last jump you ever make -- fighting winds and wayward pilots to avoid going into the treeline, cutting away from a tangled chute, not breaking your leg against the side of the aircraft. All those little things that you have to do right the first time, in time, and with nobody to prod or correct your memory.
