SAS Training Libyan Troops

The Special Air Service is the elite of the British Armed Forces. And they are training Libyans. SAS trains Libyan troops - Telegraph
For the past six months Britain’s elite troops have been schooling soldiers working for Col Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, which for years provided Republican terrorists with the Semtex explosive, machine-guns and anti-aircraft missiles used against British troops during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Sources within the SAS have expressed distaste at the agreement, which they believe could be connected to the release of the Lockerbie bomber.
There was talk of various oil contracts when the Lockerbie bomber was released. This seems to be the prelude to that....
An SAS source said: “A small SAS training team have been doing it for the last six months as part of this cosy deal with the Libyans.

“From our perspective we cannot see it as part of anything else other than the Megrahi deal.” Another SAS soldier said: “The IRA was our greatest adversary now we are training their backers. There was a weary rolling of the eyes when we were told about this.”
"When it absolutely, positively has to be blown up today..." Though the official motto is, "He who dares, wins." (If you aren't familiar with the SAS, find a book or do some internet reading. Fascinating.)
