General Petraeus Commends SAS

#1
The best line from the article was this.
On one occasion, SAS troops rented a pink pickup truck, stripped off their body armour to blend in better with the local population, jumped behind the wheel and drove through the traffic to catch a key target.

The SAS has helped to defeat a murderous web of al-Qaeda car bombers in Baghdad that brought devastation to the capital, the top US commander in Iraq said yesterday as he heaped praise on the unit’s efforts.

General David Petraeus, who is due to leave his post in Iraq shortly, also dismissed the notion that American and British military relations had been strained by the recent offensive in Basra, emphasising that the problem of tackling militias in the southern port city had been rightfully Iraqi-led.

Cheers. Do they qualify for any US medals? :wink:
They probably do but any award will probably be kept secret. A unit citation is likely such as the Presidential Unit Citation the PPCLI received.But its not about the gong its the show that counts right ?
