Again I am sorry to disagree with you however I think you have been misinformed the Green Berets do not operate in the united states, to my knowledge
that has never been a regular American Special Forces unit deployed domestically to resolve a terrorist incident. This is because under the
Insurrection Act and under the Posse Comitatus Act it would require a Act of Congress to authorise the deployment of regular military units on the
streets of America. If this was required it would be a last resort, It would probably take multiple terrorist attacks taking hostages at multiple
sites before they would considered deploying Delta or NSWGD. So yes if they really were operating in the continental United States I would be very
surprised because it would probably mean that I had missed something massive in the news. American Special forces do not operate on United States
SF units are however prohibited to provide “technical” support by providing tactical advice, usually this is provided by tire one assets and not
tire two assets. All “groups” of the Green Berets as skilled and lethal as they are, are regarded as being tire 2 Special Forces assets. Within
SOCOM there are believed to be 4 Tire-One Special Forces assets, these include, NSWDG, 1st-SFOD-D, ISA and 24th-STS however there may be others that
are not in the public domain. Tire-Two units include the SEAL Teams, Green Berets, 75th Rangers Regiment, the Night Stalkers and many other units. In
the UK we do not have such a system to differentiate between Special Forces units however if we did then the SAS, SBS and SRR would be tire one and
tier-two would include units such as UKSFG, the Pathfinders, 18 signals (could be tire-one) and a bunch of other groups.
Delta would probably not use a public building to practice on like that however it is possible. Much more likely that you were looking at FBI HRT its
exactly the type of thing they would practice. Also Delta take very little to do with electronic warfare that would fall to the ISA. As I have
already said Delta would probably provide tactical advise to law enforcement units should it be deemed as necessary by commanders on the ground. This
advise however would almost always be sought form a tire-one asset rather than the Green Berets, it is possible just very unlikely. Likewise it is
probably true that what you have said about the Green Berets being actively involved in domestic counterterrorism operations is misinformed, they just
don’t do that type of thing. Ever since the Rambo movies have came out, people have had the wrong idea about the Green berets.
If you have any questions or what me to elaborate on any of this please just ask.
