Delek was a member of the Tok'ra High Council. He saw Selmak as too influenced by his host and too free giving information to Earth. Delek and others began influencing the council to exclude Selmak from some information. When Selmak confronted Delek, Delek laid the situation out plainly for Selmak. Soon after, Delek advised the SGC that the Tok'ra would no longer be operating directly with the SGC. Such operations were proving too overt, and too many Tok'ra lives had been recently lost.
