"Tom" (MI6 officer)
According to the Guardian's Martin Chulov, an MI6 officer known as 'Tom' was the local contact for a British MI6/Special forces team sent into Libya in March 2011:
- The Guardian can reveal that the helicopter group's contact was a British national named Tom, who is believed to be an MI6 officer. He had worked for the past five months as an administrator in the Al-Khadra Farm Company, 18 miles south-west of Benghazi. The group's cover was blown by suspicious guards as soon as they arrived at their staging point inside the farm courtyard, which was adjacent to Tom's living quarters.
