Ben Griffin - We Will
NOT Fight For Queen and Country
(born 1977) is a former British SAS soldier who refused to
return to Iraq and left the Army, citing not only the "illegal"
tactics of United States troops and the policies of coalition
forces but also that the invasion itself was contrary to
international law. He expected to be court-martialled, but was
instead let go with a glowing testimonial from his commanding
officer. He spoke to an anti-war rally in 2008 about UK
involvement in extraordinary rendition the day before he was
served with an injunction preventing him from speaking publicly
and from publishing material about his time in the SAS.
