Four Mysterious Groups That Protect Americans

Many Americans worry about ISIS and terrorism. When they think of fighting terror, they often consider the FBI or Navy SEALs. Yet, there are several U.S. military, intelligence and law enforcement units most people have never heard of. Here are a few:

Shadow Wolves

This is an elite tracking unit within Immigration and Customs Enforcement. They are an all-Native American group. They track drug smugglers and traffickers in the desert between Arizona and Mexico.

Global Response Staff

This is a CIA unit created after the September 11th attacks and helps provide security and protection for CIA case officers when they meet up with assets. Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were killed in the 2012 Benghazi attacks, were part of the CIA's Global Response Staff. The group has around 125 operators at any given time.

Special Collection Service

This is a joint group with the CIA/NSA. Newsweek described their duties here:

"The men and women of the Special Collection Service are responsible for placing super-high-tech bugs in unbelievably hard-to-reach places. Officially, the Special Collection Service doesn’t exist, and isn’t headquartered in a guarded complex on a densely forested 300-acre lot outside of Beltsville, Md.

In 1999, teams known as Special Collection Elements infiltrated Afghanistan to monitor al Qaeda training camps near Khost. That same year, they tapped Pakistan’s communications grid to listen for traffic on its nuclear arsenal."

Task Force Orange

This group was officially formed after the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1981. They focus on intelligence gathering, signals intelligence and combat. Jack Murphy, a former Army Ranger, told ABC News:

“Even in the special operations community, we don’t know a lot about what these guys do.”

They found and killed drug lord Pablo Escobar and Osama Bin Laden.
