Major General Mattis was interviewed by Dr. Charles P. Neimeyer, director of the Marine Corps History Division, on 17 June 2009 at the Pentagon. Charles P. Neimeyer: What was the plan for the return of I MEF [I Marine Expeditionary Force] assets back into Iraq in the 2004 time frame? 21 Al-Anbar Awakening Major General James N. Mattis: Well, some of the ships were still at sea with our equipment and would not arrive in southern California ports until November  and even December, early December, with our gear.
The lessons were pretty obvious. But we had to prioritize working with the tribes and providing a secure local environment, which was going to be very diﬃcult, with the number of troops we had. Neimeyer: Did you ﬁnd it hard to hold the Marines back and switch from a mostly kinetic sort of attitude, when they did the march up, to a nonkinetic sort of avenue? Mattis: No, I did not, and part of the reason was we were able to go back in—do you have a copy of my letter to the troops? Neimeyer: I do.
At that point, I said absolutely. We had had two battalions who had not had the opportunity to go out of 1st Marine Division, and I knew we could come away with another one. So I said, yes, we would take that, as opposed to II MEF [II Marine Expeditionary Force], which was the option at that point. Well, three grew to six pretty quickly. Six became nine, thanks to what we call the Wolfowitz Regiment. [Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz] wanted to see an addition to the force, felt that more Marines was probably better.
