In Iraq, on March 27, 2003, Commander of the Army forces in the Persian Gulf Lt. Gen. William Wallace said: ” ‘The enemy we’re fighting is a bit different than the one we war-gamed against, because of these paramilitary forces [Saddam loyalists]… We knew they were here, but we did not know how they would fight.’ ”
