I would seriously doubt he's in any danger and it's not the CIA's fault that Llamarez looks like a terrorist.


I guess it wouldn't be your fault that you look like an FBI agent.

Long,

More likely that someone was commissioned to do a sketch of an older bin Laden, a staffer noticed a resemblance with the Spanish politician and they set to work to create a Photoshopped older bin Laden photo using Llamarez's face as a base. That sketch probably circulated widely in intelligence, Justice and State, so it's not as if a tiny cabal of people would have been at work. Alternatively, the artist started going through his Federal rolodex and sent the sketch out, hoping someone would suggest a picture that resembled bin Laden. It's much more likely that, at some point, someone noticed a resemblance and that eventually got back to a person who Photoshopped one up

Bao,

I work for the Federal government and have contacts with the FBI. I assure you, the FBI looks far more professional than I do.

but you will agree with me that not too professional.

We are not talking about a complete unknown guy; he's the leader of a political party in Spain and the Spanish's parliament foreign affairs rep.

He's a communist......could have influenced?

Long,

On the professionalism part, it would actually be less professional to use some anonymous person. Politicians are public figures and it's generally less problematic to use their image than that of a private person.

If it was unprofessional, it would likely be because someone is an immigrant from Spain, works for the FBI, doesn't like Llamarez and thought this would be hilarious. And, frankly, if you imagine taking someone you dislike and using them as the basis for a photo of a terrorist... well... it does sound an awful lot like a dumb office prank.

Really, this is my problem with this sort of thing. Already people are searching for some form of geopolitical motive when that is the least likely explanation.

"To do so, the FBI copied and pasted the white hair of the MP"

Hey my friend.  Am I reading this wrong?


This reads as if they pasted the Spanish guy's white hair onto Obama's head.


Maybe a new coiffure would do the trick.
