Bremer asks for more troops -- Philadelphia Inquirer.

Meanwhile, back in the Rose Garden:

President Bush yesterday reaffirmed his commitment to Iraq, saying the attacks on American troops would not force the United States out of the nation before freedom took root.

Bush, in a Rose Garden speech marking the 30th anniversary of the end of the military draft, spoke of "terrorists, extremists and Saddam loyalists" who have attacked U.S. forces, intimidated Iraqis, and destroyed infrastructure. He warned of foreign fighters entering Iraq, al-Qaeda-related groups waiting to strike, and former Iraqi officials "who will stop at nothing" to recover power.

"These groups believe they have found an opportunity to harm America, to shake our resolve in the war on terror, and to cause us to leave Iraq before freedom is fully established," Bush said. "They are wrong and they will not succeed."

What an arrogant, obnoxious liar Bush is. People in Iraq are fighting against an arrogant and incompetent foreign invader. Iraq has NOTHING to do with the "war on terror," and freedom will never be fully established there until the occupiers leave.
