Hardly, and green berets have never been elite, they are hats.
I don't know about the US, but here "Green Berets" is a (nick)name for an elite unit. Now they want to change the standard beret colour for all Army units into green, and started a nice discussion here.
Side one: "Only 'green berets' should ware green berets."
Side two: "It's a different colour green, so it doesn't matter."
The things people worry about.....
Btw. The people who object always seem to be non "green berets" themselves. Strange how that works....

In Canada, berets are actually standard issue to every branch (with the exception of JTF2, maybe) of the CF. The Army wears green berets on a regular basis, the AF wears blue berets either a) in Combats, or b) in work dress, and the Navy wears black berets when in their work dress.
