Marines rush across a danger area in Fallujah in later 2004. It was the only battle in the history of the Marine Corps in which fliers were dropped to alert the enemy when the Marines would begin their sweep.

I will tell you who gives away their plans–a military force who practices moral leadership. Fallujah attracted foreign fighters from all over the Middle East, and many of the insurgents were residents of Fallujah. Fallujah had hundreds of thousands of civilians–women, children, and the elderly. The Marines knew they would be fighting house-to-house, street-to-street. Tanks were used to blow up buildings. These flyers made it clear to the civilian population that if they stayed, they would suffer the wrath of the Marine forces attacking the city, and that they should leave. This was about protecting them, not giving away our military plans.

General Mattis wanted to use special operations forces and intelligence assets to find the people responsible for killing the Blackwater contractors. This was a Pentagon position to take Fallujah.
