Doubted for why he would fight

A Pakistani English textbook has been withdrawn. The book contains a poem praising the virtues of an unnamed political leader, but it just so happens that the lines contain an acrostic that spells out President George W. Bush. Musharraf's critics have criticized it, saying that this proves the Pakistani regime is a U.S. puppet. Some lines from this great work:

Bracing for war, yet praying for peace
Using his power so evil will cease.

Going forward and knowing he's right
Even when doubted for why he would fight

Easy in manner, solid as steel
Strong in his faith, refreshingly real.

Personally, I doubt for why this would be included in an English textbook.
