Is the SAS better than the American secret services?
Totally different things, the Secret Service’s main job is protecting the President 24/7 and in that they are the very best at what they do. The SAS are an elite fighting unit who go into situations that would make most people wet themselves and like the secret service are the best at what they do. The two operate in totally different arenas so really it’s impossible to rate one against the other, bottom line is that you don’t want to come into conflict with either!
Firstly, secret services are things like MI5 and the FBI. The SAS are Special Forces. So in military aspects, yes they are, but in civilian aspects, probably not. If you had replaced Secret Services with Special Forces, then the answer is yes. We train the American Special Services, and the only other countries that can come close are Australia and Belgium. Enough said.
