"redouble our efforts" in Iraq:

In the news: (excerpts, emp add)
Bomb kills Iraqi sheik who met with Bush

The most prominent figure in a U.S.-backed revolt of Sunni sheiks against al-Qaida in Iraq was killed Thursday by a bomb planted near his home in Anbar province, 10 days after he met with President Bush, police and tribal leaders said.

On Thursday, Bush spokeswoman Dana Perino said ... hat while the death was not a setback to the U.S. efforts in Anbar, U.S. officials would "have to redouble our efforts to work with the local populations to get the support they need to prevent other such murders."
How does one "redouble"? With twice as many troops? Twice as many visits by Bush to the secure air base? Twice as many reports from Fred and Kimberly Kagan?
