Spanish MP's photo used for Osama Bin Laden poster


news.bbc.co.uk

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".

FBI has used a Spanish MP's face to show how Bin Laden might look. Is this the best FBI can do?

I hope this person does not get arrested as Bin Laden if he visits the US.

It is not Bin laden but this guy's safety that has been threatened by this and he is right to protest, I think the FBI cannot just pick up anyone's photo on the internet and then make changes to it and make it as Bin laden

That's really funny!

The FBI: "Our team of experts have been using cutting edge digital to determine the possible current appearance of Osama Bin Laden"

Reality: Some tech dude copy pasted stuff from the internet & threw it together in Photoshop

Well Osama's been dead for years...they have to do something to give a face to the enemy, right

I mean it wouldn't be right to use Bush's or Obama's likeness, right

Obama cut the FBI funding and now they are forced to resort to public domain images to create OBL2.
...or is this OBL3?

I have read that this man has quite strong feelings against the United States of America, just something I read from a mainstream news source.

I think it was SKY news that said he had strong anti American views (no elaboration) and was in fact well known for these views.

A lazy copy and paste job or a message was sent to Mr Llamazares – Times
such as these I would not be surprised at either.

Oh man, that's funny.

CIA has been doing a lot of stupid things lately.

And they keep getting caught with their pants down!

Sunny, I think MrVertigo was on to something


You know what happens when someone does this with words in a university setting?
Expulsion from school. Being expelled, but you get it.
And in a literary environment? Called plagarism, which justifies charges being brought.
I mean you have to be ONE lazy f#4k tard who works for the CIA and finds a pic online in order to help you to do this job. Here the highest levels of the country's intelligence operations are your bosses.
And the world is supposedly at stake in this case.
Hi, I can work for the CIA, right ? I can cut and paste


Rogan has a brilliant stand up piece about Bin Laden. He calls him a #ing joke. A cartoon character. It's brilliant stuff. He calls Bin Laden "magical" and describes how he runs away at the last possible minute

It's soooo good. I can't find it on youtube anymore where I once watched it.

It's back in the news, as the MP has vowed to sue the agency.
