With ref to "The Feathermen," etc: Just reading this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0312384394/?tag=armrumser-20 This is an account by "Dalton Fury" (not his real moniker) the US Delta Force commander of the allied special task force which made the now infamous strike against Bin Laden in the Tora Bora Mountains in 2001. There have been dozens of UK newspapers articles about the "two squadrons" of SAS who had Bin Laden in their sights, then were ordered out to give the Yanks the honour of whacking him. For eg: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3724/is_200202/ai_n9076616 Or, try this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-90168/SAS-heroes-win-VCs.html Or, perhaps, this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4454828,00.html Interesting reading, eh? Unfortunately, it is, according to Fury's account, total fiction. There was not a SINGLE SAS soldier involved in the operation (though there were 12 SBS chaps). Do UK journalists simply invent copy about the SAS? There does not appear to be a single shred of truth to Anderson's story or the dozens (try Google) that were spun off it in the UK press.
