British special forces are on the ground in Libya helping to lead the hunt for Muammar Gaddafi.
As a $1.6 million bounty was placed on his head, soldiers from 22 SAS Regiment began guiding rebel soldiers after being ordered in by the Prime Minister, David Cameron.
For the first time, defence sources have confirmed the SAS has been in Libya for several weeks, and played a key role in co-ordinating the battle for Tripoli.
Hardened fighters streamed into Tripoli yesterday as Libya's rebels sought to deliver a knockout punch to Gaddafi's diehards and to flush out the elusive strongman, dead or alive.
Now does that news honestly surprise anyone? And it really reveals the hatred on the part of the British government.
Supposedly this was the war of the so-called 'rebels.' But they had to be helped across the finish line with five months of bombing. Now the Brits no longer seem to have the patience to pretend the 'rebels' are functional and they want to rush in and do the kill themselves.
It is a very telling moment.
