Caption: U.S. agents wearing protective equipment pause at Manger Square where the Church of Nativity is located in the West Bank town of Bethlehem Friday, May 10, 2002. The man, 2nd right, is an Israeli army official. Palestinian gunmen wanted by Israel emerged from the church, marking the end of a tense 39-day standoff with Israeli troops at one of Christianity's holiest shrines with a deal, which calls for 13 militants to be deported and another 26 to be transferred to the Gaza Strip.

Just a guess, but maybe State Department Security guys?

Hey, this is a good idea.  Now, if only we could get the rest of the pricks, ah, agents over there. [;)]

It couldn't be the FBI, as the tanks didn't bulldoze the church and set it on fire.  

Don't think it's the US Marshalls, as Elian Gonzalez is back in Cuba.

It's probably the BATF.  They are known for hitting the wrong address.

What's on the other drop down holster, on the opposite side of the handgun?  Mags?

They were supposed to be CIA people, but they don't look it do they. FBI?

Where is the British contingent? It was supposed to be both CIA and MI6...

Diplomatic Security Service* is my guess... The was a great picture on one when Colin Powell was in the Mid-East all decked out and with an M4.
Though they could be FBI "observing" since us and the brit's are supposed to be acting as jailors for some of the captured.
I'm suprised they don't have a US flag stuck on them someplace... "Federal Agent" probably doesn't mean a whole lot over there.

*Their Mobile Security team is super neat... They did a documentry on them a few years ago. They protect our diplomats when they go to really nasty places and protect nasty's like Arafat when they come here. They are like a roving SWAT team, but they bodyguard.
