So much for the Nato Alliance?

American allies are said to be becoming impatient with Brits over the issue

BRITISH soldiers are said to be so afraid they’ll be hauled before the courts for how they treat ISIS captives – that their US counterparts have had to leave them behind on missions and go it alone.

Last week it emerged that several special forces officers who worked with the 22 Special Air Service (SAS) now face being probed over their actions in Iraq.

It is understood that US Delta Force officers have become so frustrated over their unwillingness to capture ISIS commanders, they have abandoned the Brits at least twice so far.

An SAS source told the Sunday Express last night: “We just can’t do things the old way.

“The Americans are seeing a reticence that did not exist before. We have always stayed within the box, but we used to work things out as we went along.

“The feeling now is that it’s not enough. We know each and every one of us can suddenly come back to  find our names on an investigations list. Or it could happen many months, or even years later.

“It feels like getting a manual car and being told we can only use one hand to drive it.

“So while we check and double check orders, work things out to the smallest detail,  the window of opportunity to act on an HGV gets smaller. The delay is causing impatience with the Americans.”

The incidents are believed to have happened over the last few months, as Special Forces carried out a high profile campaign to undermine ISIS resistance near Mosul and the Syrian stronghold of Raqqa.

When asked if the claims were true, the Ministry of Defence said it does not comment on special forces operations.

US President had announced an extra 250 Special Forces in Syria to support rebel factions in keeping gains made against so-called Islamic State?
