Insurgent snipers sent after engineers, medics and chaplains

USAToday reported Iraqi insurgents are teaching recruits sophisticated sniper techniques for targeting U.S. troops that include singling out engineers, medics and chaplains, according to training material obtained by U.S. military intelligence.

Targeting engineers and medics are because they are helping win the hearts and minds of Iraqi citizens. I am not sure I understand why they are targeting chaplains, other than the fact that they represent God, and the insurgents are really backed by Satan.
The insurgent sniper training manual was posted on the Internet. Among its tips: "Killing doctors and chaplains is suggested as a means of psychological warfare."
