The "ex SAS" story has got to be top of the league. "Ex Det", "Ex SBS", Ex FRU" trail a way behind. It was about 22 years ago that the EU passed a resolution on member states to investigate and dismantle unauthorized military groups. The EU also sent a warning to USA about the CIA backing of the Gladio network in Europe. I have wondered how long would elapse before the first "ex Gladio" walt would emerge.
