The US Federal Bureau of Intelligence is red-faced after being caught using a photo of a member of Spain’s parliament to create images of what the world’s most wanted terrorist might look like after years of seclusion.
Two images of what an FBI forensic artist thinks bin Laden might look like today were featured on the US Web site Rewards for Justice for several hours. However, both images were based on a photo of Spanish MP Gaspar Llamazares, who was decidedly unhappy with the move.
The FBI’s last photo of bin Laden is from 1998, according to media reports.
“I was surprised and angered because it’s the most shameless use of a real person to make up the image of a terrorist,” Llamazares said at a press conference, according to the BBC. “It’s almost like out of a comedy if it didn’t deal with matters as serious as bin Laden and citizens’ security.”
