SAS - Special Air Squadran.
Uh no, it is Special Air Service
BTW, i would think it is impossible to tell an SAS soldier out, unless they were wearing their military uniform including their beret and patches, with out them, no one would notice.

I admit it is very odd people are best at making up their own minds. The useage of the SAS on citizens seems odd. It does however have a presidence: they were used in Ireland when there was peace keeping duties, due to the IRA and other terrorist groups. In the miners strike it was leaked there was soldiers and SAS men sent by Margaret Thatcher to deal with the striking miners: although they were dressed as policemen without numbers or any identification on their uniforms.edit on 17-2-2012 by s12345 because: (no reason given)
I can also add that the SAS mark on the vehicle was simply stuck on as a poster. It does seem odd that more than one person would experience the same thing. Also as mentioned above they have been used on civilians of their own country before, and probably will again.edit on 17-2-2012 by s12345 because: (no reason given)edit on 17-2-2012 by s12345 because: (no reason given)

Sending British special forces squad to intimitade citizen of Britain sounds pretty weird. There are relatively few of soldiers in SAS, their time is very expensive and to waste it on intimidating someone when there is police/secret services/regular army units who can do this specific task (if ordered to do it at all) with the same efficiency but with much less expensive manpower.
There are numerous possibilities that are more probable then what you said - from simply picking up soldiers for the ride to the base to training for the olympics.edit on 17-2-2012 by ZeroKnowledge because: (no reason given)
