Have you ever heard of the Green Berets?
Forgot to respond to this b4:
The Green Berets is strictly an elite Army military unit, like the Navy SEALS, with no "Police" type training, intelligence capability or exemption from "Posse Comitatus" laws. Nothing at all like the new force I am proposing which would need to be much more robust, self-contained & self sufficient than the US Army Green Berets.
The Green Berets was a new concept under JFK in 1960, designed to train Montanyard tribesmen in SE Asia & fight the wars of last century.
We are now in the 21si Century & need new tools to fight the international (mainly Muslim) criminal groups that have no State allegiance, fight with no civilized rules of land warfare & utilize the tactic of Terror as their main weapon.
Just a few ideas, off the top of my head (what's left of it ) as to what this new force would need:
1. Self sufficient for transportation of personnel & equipment. (their own fleet of aircraft & flight crews)
2. Strong "Intelligence" capability & work closely with FBI, CIA & all military Intelligence
3. Police & Military training including heavy emphasis on U.S. Constitutional & International Law
4. 24/7 /365 alert status
5. Special access to FISA court & a cadre of AUSA's.
6. & much more
Edit: I fully understand the potential danger to a free society that such a force could present & there would have to be strict oversight of every move this force engaged in. With that caveat though, I think the potential danger would be superseded by the utility of this force if properly used & controlled.
