The top US General in Iraq at the time praised the effectiveness of the British SAS. Speaking to the Times newspaper, General David Petraeus said, "They have helped immensely in the Baghdad area, in particular, to take down the al-Qaeda car bomb networks and other al-Qaeda operations in Iraq’s capital city, so they have done a phenomenal job in that regard.
