The newspaper revealed it bias in several ways:
1. The headline, exposed? A more apt headline would US General Describes SAS Successes in Iraq?

I always like the insouciance of the SAS. New motto,
“Who Cares, We Win”
If you want to see a great movie on SAS in Nam. Odd Angry Shot is the name of it.The telegraph? worthless.
That’s one of my favorite movies.
I like the scene where some NCO threatens to bring one of the SAS troopers up on a charge, and the trooper tells him “well, you’d better make it murder,” because he’s going to kill him.
The fight between the scorpion and the tarantula in the bucket with the betting going on.LOL
bias? the telegraph is not a liberal newspaper.
I wish they would continue that policy with the Brit SAS. Revealing details of their operations only helps the enemy.
Yep, that'll do it! 50 lbs should be the max weight.
