If you go online to the FBIs official website, www.fbi.gov, you’ll see they have started a special series on their HRT unit as they mark thirty years since the unit’s inception.

HRT is a competent and capable counter-terrorist unit that has provided some invaluable and first hand expertise to special operations forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. This first video goes over the history and the general capabilities of the unit. The second video which is yet to be released focuses on the selection process – which for a long time the FBI has kept a tight lid on.

Enjoy the 30th Anniversary video!
