U.S. and British special forces are reportedly forming a super squad to hunt down ISIS's leaders

The U.S. and the U.K. are reportedly teaming up to fight ISIS. A new unit, Task Force Black, has been ordered to "smash the Islamic State."

The black ops squad will include members of the CIA, Delta Force, and Seal Team 6, as well as members of the U.K.'s Special Air Service. Unnamed sources told the U.K.'s Mirror that Task Force Black is, at least in part, a response to the ISIS killing of American journalist James Foley.

Task Force Black will target ISIS leaders, including Abu Bakr ­al-Baghdadi, who is "the world's most-wanted terrorist," according to the Mirror.

"We need to go into Syria and Iraq and kill as many ISIS members as we can. You can't negotiate with these people," an anonymous source told the Mirror. "This is not a war of choice. They are cash rich and have a plentiful ­supply of arms. If we don't go after them, they will soon come after us."
