Yes it is funded by the US BUT we are never told it's ENTIRELY funded by them, in fact, the book implies otherwise as it mentions how its American funding is concealed through the department of the interior. If rainbow was fully funded by the USA, mentioning "American Funding" would be pointless. It is repeatedly described as a multinational outfit. Yes, Clark answers to the US President, because is still a US Officer. The same way IRL NATO officers do not stop being officers of their own military, with the implications that has. Clark's own memo that gave birth to Rainbow on page 26 refer to it as a multinational team, not a US outfit, and in fact, great pains are given to explain why it's based in the UK and not the USA for legal reasons on top of logistics one. It is also pointed out that Rainbow's chain of command defies definition, and it is even pointed out that the British originally intended to have one of their own be the commander since they are hosting the damn thing, but conceded to having Clark do it with Stanley as his 2nd. Lastly, it's mentioned on page 27 that a full half of the field staff and intelligence crew are british. Which means that since we know there's other countries involved beside the USA, this "US Military outfit" has less americans than brits.
