I would put my money on the Unit. Both groups have extensive training for hostage rescue and such but Delta is a lot more land-based than the Navy.
Too much time is "wasted" on water training than is necessary for hostage rescue. Also, only a very select few SEALs are trained up to the standards
that Delta has. For instance, the Unit has their people go through an Operator Training Course that involves tradecraft (Counter and Surveillance,
Dead Letter Drops etc), explosives/demolitions, and building entry skills. The SEALs are much more water-oriented and specialize in urban and rural
combat operations. Another benefit the Unit has is publicity or the lack of it. If they go in a hostage-rescue operation etc you won't hear about it
and you will never know which military outfit was behind it. But if the Navy SEALs decide to wave around a stick, you might see a story pop up on some
alternative news site.
