    Nah; The Unit's Executive Producer and consultant, E. L. Haney, was in that first Delta class, and that actually happened, according to him. Read about it in Haney's book, Inside Delta Force.

    Best part: according to Haney, despite having their photos and names, none of those operators were caught by the FBI.

    I wonder if people even saw the same thing for Sakurasou Episode 9 when I read the comments.

    There's no hard and fast rule, but generally the breakdown is as follows (note that this is a gross oversimplification):

    1. If it's a hostage rescue, or a highly sensitive mission (could even be mid to long term), or you need operators blending into the local population, you use Delta (trivia: Delta's graduation exercise for the first operators involved a 3-day cross country travel across the US, while being hunted by the FBI, before assembling at a location to assault a captured airliner. This on top of a near-six month selection/training period). Note the Delta guys in Black Hawk Down, who were doing recon in the markets before they launched the raid. Delta is very good at raid and surgical attacks, less so at direct combat. Think of them as a stiletto blade.

    2. If you need a jack of all trades unit for firepower, and need large numbers, you use Rangers (who are essentially more skilled light infantry, and deploy in larger numbers to the battlefield. Rangers are good at fighting and kicking down doors). A large sword, basically.

    3. If you need recon, and you're launching from a ship, SEALs or Force Recon are your options.

    4. If you need guys who can do long term mentoring of the local population and teach them to fight the bad guys (with the occasional bit of direct action), you go to the Army Special Forces (aka Green Berets). These are the hearts and minds guys: they can kick ass, but their focus is on making friends and training.

    5. If you need guys who are very good at direct action (aka kicking ass and blowing things up) who can stealth in and are trained for all theaters,, but especially wherever the water is concerned, you call in the SEALs. Note that SEALs train to similar standards as Delta, but Delta is a bit more soft skills and SEALs are a bit more hard skills. A short sword, I'd say.

    Given the fact that Guantanamo is a Navy base, there's also the consideration that the Navy would want to handle things in-house, and would lose a helluva lotta face by asking the Army (Delta) to handle things - especially when there are more SEALs than there are Delta operators.

    As for which SEAL team would get deployed, theoretically each SEAL Team (which would consist of 6 platoons of about 20-odd men) has it's own designated Area Of Responsibility. In practice, that's been kicked to the curb what with the War on Terror; SEAL teams train to deploy anywhere.

    My guess is that Night Nine was the most convenient asset; they were probably supposed to rotate back to the US from Afghanistan, and were diverted for this op because the Navy wanted this handled in-house.

    This isn't ?

    *picks up loose skirt...

    Can I have it Onee-sama?
    Well I don't know. Who knows what she thinks of all this. But other then Saintess and you, both of whom have her approval, it doesn't seem all that appropriate.
