FBI uses photo of Spanish MP to make updated bin Laden poster





NOTE FROM JOHN: I put the FBI photo of what bin Laden might look like today, 2009, next to the photo of the Spanish member of parliament that these idiots used to create the “new” bin Laden. If I worked at airport security, I would absolutely think the Spanish MP was bin Laden, after what the FBI just did. What an incredibly stupid, negligent thing to do. Look at the hairline, they actually took his hair, exactly, and the wrinkle in his forehead.

This should make travel a lot easier for Gaspar Llamazares. BBC:

A Spanish politician has said he was shocked to find out the FBI had used his photo for a digitally-altered image showing how Osama Bin Laden might look.

Gaspar Llamazares said he would no longer feel safe travelling to the US after his hair and parts of his face appeared on a most-wanted poster.

He said the use of a real person for the mocked-up image was “shameless.”

The FBI admitted a forensic artist had obtained certain facial features “from a photograph he found on the internet.”
