Since the attacks against Americans increased, commanders have sent more troops into the city and detained dozens of suspected militants. The result appears to be a descending spiral, in which the crackdown is draining away much of the good will that remains." Additional 3000 Marines deployed to Iraq. Bush is losing the war against the insurgents, so he wages war to keep the American electorate from learning about it. Counterterrorism experts say Bush is lying about Iraq and the war against terrorism. "Experts who have served in top positions in both Republican and Democratic administrations are increasingly suggesting that the Iraq war has diverted momentum, troops and intelligence resources from the worldwide campaign to destroy the remnants of al-Qaeda. They note that the presence of U.S. troops in an Arab homeland is serving as a major recruiting tool for signing up and motivating new jihadis, or Islamic holy warriors. 'Fighting Iraq had little to do with fighting the war on terrorism, until we made it [so],' said Richard Clarke, who was a senior White House counterterrorism official under Bush and President Bill Clinton."
