British hypocrisy (contd)

Melanie Phillips has spotted a fine example of British hypocrisy:

Following claims in March 2010 that Israeli Mossad agents had used
cloned British passports on a clandestine mission, the then foreign
Secretary David Miliband raged:

Such misuse of British passports is intolerable

and that Israel had displayed a

profound disregard for the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

Today we learn that the six SAS soldiers detained (and now released) in Libya

were held after going to an agricultural compound when Libyan
security guards found they were carrying arms, ammunition, explosives,
maps and passports from at least four different nationalities (my emphasis).

We trust most earnestly that none of those was an Israeli one.

Caught with their pants down!
I was shocked when I heard the news reports of British SAS and MI6 operatives using fake passports.
It is a disgrace, they should have used their own passports and broadcasted their intentions in advance. How dare they attempt a clandestine operation of this type - who do they think they are - Mossad?.
i am absolutley outraged and shall be writing to my MP.

All well and good, but do we know which nationality of passports were used, and were they of living people in those countries?

Another thought occurs: the passports might not be fake. The SAS is made up of soldiers from the Commonwealth, so they might have been carrying their own passports.
