SAS troops captured in Iraq

A few months back a few British SAS/SSR soldiers were captured by Iraqi police. You may remember the story. The mainstream media fed us the governments lies saying the SAS men were spying on an iraqi officer who had reportedly been using a drill to torture his prisoners at the notorious Jamiyat prison in Basra. Lets not forget this man may have existed, however the troops WERE NOT on a recon mission watching him.


The men were captured carrying large amounts of weaponry and explosives. There was no explanation for this. Troops carrying out surveillance missions do not move around with large amounts of heavy weaponry and explosives. They are armed to fight but travel lightly so they can move undetected. Yet the media cast the soldiers in a favourable light, and imply the iraqi police are also insurgents.

The Telegraph in Britain reported that the British Government ministers were understood to be extremely concerned and embarrassed by the allegations of torture because it was the British that helped to re-create the police force and reopened Jamiyat jail.

As far as I can see this seems to be how events unfolded:

The two soldiers were driving around a demonstration in Basra when their suspicious behavior attracted the attention of Basra police.

The police attempted to stop the men, who were disguised with wigs and wore arab clothing.

At least one Basra policeman was shot dead along with at least one person in the crowd. An undetermined number of others were injured in the gunfight.

The British pair were captured after a gunfight and jailed. Arab television showed the men, and their huge collection of weaponry. The British occupiers had been caught with all the tools necessary to launch so called suicide bombs against the people.

British tanks promptly arrived to free the men before they cracked and confessed, releasing 150 prisoners who the British claim to be insurgents in the process.The city rioted against the tanks and troops, setting fire to at least one of the tanks.

The British media quickly covered up the first reports from at least a dozen independent reporters working in Iraq.

A spokesman for rebel Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said the captured British soldiers were trying to pass themselves off as members of Sadr's rebel militia.

Sheikh Hassan told Socialist Worker that the two soldiers captured by Iraqi police last Monday were armed with explosives and a remote control detonator. They were disguised as members of Sadr's militia, the Mehdi Army.

The trouble started when a senior Sadr official was arrested on Sunday. "We called a protest outside the mayor’s office on Monday demanding the Sheikh be released," Sheikh Hassan said. "This protest was peaceful."

"But events in our city took a sinister turn when the police tried to stop two men dressed as members of the Mehdi Army driving near the protest. The men opened fire on the police and passers-by. After a car chase they were arrested."

"What our police found in their car was very disturbing — weapons, explosives and a remote control detonator," Sheikh Hassan said. "These are the weapons of terrorists. We believe these soldiers were planning an attack on a market or other civilian targets, and thanks be to God they were stopped and countless lives were saved."

At least one Basra policeman was shot dead. At least one person in the crowd was shot dead. An undetermined number of others were injured in the gunfight.

There are about 8,500 British troops in or around Basra. Four Iraqis died in the riots against the jailbreak mission. Also, a local reporter who wrote for the New York Times and The Guardian was found murdered after being abducted by mysterious gunmen. Perhaps also SAS/SSR troops.

Following the lead of its American partners, the British Ministry of Defense denied all wrongdoing, called the destruction of the jail "absolutely right," and blamed everything on a "civil war" developing or alternatively on Iran funding and arming insurgents in southern Iraq.
