Oh good news: The sworn enemy of the USA is now training Libyan forces… You know, the UK.

When did it happen?  I missed the exact point that the UK became an enemy of the US. 

I know when we became an enemy of all of our allies.  That was when Obama took over, but I missed when the UK declared they would support our enemies.

LONDON —  Some of Britain’s most elite soldiers have been training Libyan forces in counterterrorism and surveillance for the past six months, a U.K. newspaper said Saturday.

The Daily Telegraph said that a contingent of between four and 14 men from the Special Air Service, or SAS, were working with Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi’s soldiers in Libya, a country once notorious for its support of terrorism.

The paper cited an unidentified SAS source as saying that the training was seen as part of the deal to release Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, whose return to Libya last month outraged Americans and raised questions over the nature of Britain’s relationship with Qaddafi’s authoritarian regime.
