What would be an ideal FBI HRT Operator?
In terms of background IE: What military unit, and what LEA, and education...

Marine Force Recon or any military Special Operations experience.
That said, keep in mind that the FBI is a civilian law enforcement organization charged with enforcing the laws of the United States per the Constitution of the United States. What this means is that all those who join the FBI must first prove that they are willing to enforce the Constitutional laws that govern miranda rights and others in the accomplishment of their assigned responsibilites. Military activities for the units I noted are focused on taking out the bad guys without worrying about reading them their rights!
Education - expect to need a BA/BS degree to be successful in the FBI as a field agent (I have known a few who went that way from college and from the Corps).
Good luck. Only a very few make HRT. Going military can help but your making SpecOPs qualified is challenging itself!
