Implausible explanation of British Ambassador to Tripoli to senior Benghazi rebel politician Mustafa Abdel-Jalil.about the presence of up to 8 SAS operatives near Benghazi.

This may not be the end of the affair as it is possible that the deal to release the British SAS may backfire on rebel politicians as event may be used by Gaddafi to undermine Benghazi rebels as being in associated to British forces.
