SAS defy orders and rescue captured comrades

I can't believe that SAS commanders in Iraq had to disobey orders from the brass back home in order to save two of their soldiers. Insane...absolutely insane. Daily Mail

The SAS launched a daring mission to rescue two of its own men held hostage in Iraq against the orders of the Ministry of Defence, the Daily Mail can reveal.

The elite unit was pushed to the brink of mutiny after it was banned from saving the SAS soldiers captured by militants because to do so would embarrass the Government.

The astonishing edict drove SAS officers close to mass resignation, according to a hardhitting report by the Tory MP Adam Holloway, a former Guards officer.
