IMINT Alert! -- Who Are These Guys?

Ok dear readers, here's one for you.

The following photo ran with the following generic caption: U.S. troops keep a watchful eye out as people go to the polls for the country's 2nd Presidential elections, August 20, 2009 in Kabul, Afghanistan. Security is on high alert as the Afghan people go the the polls. The Taliban have vowed to disrupt the democratic election. -- Kate Brooks, Getty Images

My question: Who are these guys? Camo? Not US issue. Helmets, callsign patches, ballistic eyewear, M4 with all the whistles and bells? US-issue looking. But definately high-speed US unit issue if so. The one tell-tale I see is the guy on the right's pistol holster -- looks a little too chinsy for a US operator.Troops-in-Kabul-mystery.jpg

What say you IMINT analysts?
