What you are showing is mainly after the fact stories, as any black operation is usually told, or stories concerning aid relief that, while it involves military, does seek to keep those same military out of any direct conflict.
What is in the quoted story from the OP is something much different, what is being quoted would be more like if you had heard about the attempted hostage rescue prior to any rescue attempt.
That wont happen - making this story either a lie to sell papers, or propaganda intended to make ISIS worry more. Either way, we don't speak of black op's prior to the mission.

A rainbow unit is any unit utilizing multi national forces during a combat operation as the slang was used during my service, rainbow 6 was a multi national counter terrorism unit (fiction of course) but I am just saying under context that this joint unit (if exists) I guess could be considered a multi national counter terrorism unit
