    SAS 'Training Libyan Military'

    It has been alleged that the SAS has been training Libyan special forces, despite Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's regime having supplied arms to the IRA.

    Britain's elite regiment has been passing on skills to its Libyan counterparts for the past six months according to The Daily Telegraph.

    SAS sources told the newspaper they are unhappy with the arrangement, which they believe could be connected to the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi last month.

    They are also angry at being ordered to train soldiers from a country that provided the IRA with weapons used against British troops during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

    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."

    The Ministry of Defence does not comment on special forces activities.

    It is believed the first moves towards setting up the training agreement were begun after Tony Blair visited Libya as Prime Minister in 2004. The deal was only finalised and "signed off" by Gordon Brown this year, the newspaper said.

    ..hiyo itawasaidia Waingereza ktk shughuli za kijasusi dhidi ya Gaddafi.

    ..wanaweza hata kutumbukiza mtu wao humo, mwisho ukasikia wamemu-eliminate Gaddafi.

    ..Savimbi naye si alikuwa mtoto wao, mwisho nasikia haohao wakam-set up akawa ambushed na MPLA.

    ..siasa za kimataifa ni kitu cha ajabu sana na mara zote mataifa makubwa na makampuni yao ndiyo yanayofaidika.

    ..wakati wa vita vya Angola, visima vya mafuta vya Angola/MPLA vilikuwa chini ya makampuni ya magharibi lakini Wacuba ndiyo walikuwa wanavilinda!!
