What went wrong in Iraq - An al Qaeda perspective.

[I]t is a common problem among terror groups. They lack the numbers and ability to successfully attack hardened sites and armed and trained troops. So they're reduced to finding other ways to make their presence both known and feared. That, of course, involves killing innocent civilians, or, as AQ calls them, "involuntary martyrs".

As you might imagine, that wears thin among the "involuntary martyrs" (and we think "collateral damage" is bad) very quickly. And the result was the loss of their base of support (in this case, the Sunni insurgents).
