Default Operator??

i keep hearing and seeing the term operator used in conjunction with special forces types. exactly where does that come from?? when i hear that being used i always think of:

If this has anything to do with the retail security firearms thread, that term comes from a LEGEND in mall security.

spec ops = special operations

only makes sense if someone who preforms special operations would be called operators

i guess that makes a little sense. always wondered where it came from. i still think of lilly tomlin with a mp5sd in camo with a bandana around one upper arm a cig in the corner of her mouth saying "one ringy dingy ya muslim bastiges..."
