Spanish lawmaker used in updated bin Laden photo






MADRID (AP) A Spanish lawmaker was horrified to learn that the FBI used an online photograph of him to create an image showing what Osama bin Laden might look like today.

The image using Gaspar Llamazares' photo appeared on a wanted poster updating the U.S. government's 1998 photo of the al-Qaeda leader.

RELATED: Osama bin Laden's 'most wanted' photo digitally updated

FBI spokesman Ken Hoffman acknowledged to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo that the agency used a picture of Llamazares taken from Google Images.

In a statement Saturday, the agency would say only that it was aware of similarities between their age-progressed image "and that of an existing photograph of a Spanish public official."


"The forensic artist was unable to find suitable features among the reference photographs and obtained those features, in part, from a photograph he found on the Internet," the FBI said in a statement to the Associated Press.


The wanted poster appeared on the State Department website rewardsforjustice.net, listing a reward of up to $25 million. The FBI said the photo of bin Laden would be removed from the website. Llamazares, former leader of the United Left party, was elected to Spain's parliament in 2000. The photograph of him used to make the wanted poster originally appeared on posters for his 2004 general-election campaign.

He said he would no longer feel safe traveling to the United States after his hair and facial wrinkles appeared on the bin Laden image.
"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 Saturday at a news conference. "It's almost like out of a comedy if it didn't deal with matters as serious as bin Laden and citizens' security."
Llamazares planned to ask the U.S. government for an explanation and said he reserved the right to take legal action.

Llamazares said he was concerned to see the government resorting to what he called sloppy techniques, especially in the light of recent terrorism alerts such as the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Detroit-bound airplane.
"It might provoke mirth, but it demonstrates that what we're seeing from security services isn't exactly recommendable," he said.
Llamazares said he has "no similarity, physically or ideologically" to bin Laden. They do share one trait both are 52.

Jose Morales, spokesman for Llamazares' party, was surprised that computer images such as the retouched bin Laden photo were made using photos of real people.

Bin Laden, who is wanted in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya, is believed to be hiding in the lawless Pakistan frontier bordering Afghanistan. His exact whereabouts have been unknown since late 2001, when he and some bodyguards slipped out of the Tora Bora mountains after evading air strikes, special forces and Afghan militias.

It's not like they cut and pasted Bin Laden's terrorist beard on the Spanish guy's face.

They photochopped in 2 minor features. You are making crap up and over dramatizing it.

I can understand not enjoying the fact that your features were used for this purpose, but Llamazares is using this for publicity and is loving every minute of that additional exposure.

If I was in Llamazares' shoes, looking that much like Osama (which is his parents fault, not the FBI's), I'd put in the effort every morning to shave.

you are just soooo riiiiight. I apologize for even being so retarded as to think like that, hooow sillly of me!

You quoted my post, but removed the reference to the article you posted.

Why are you saying "some whole other guys face?" that is NOT what the article said.

Actually take the time to read the article you posted before making up ridonkulous arguements which contradict the facts it contains. while you're at it, re-read my post as you missed the point entirely.

I'm all about having a good discussion so just calm down, stick to the facts (esp. the ones you post), and don't mis-quote me. bad form.

IMHO the heart of the problem is a relatively weak public schooling system further exacperated by astronomical post secondary costs.

On top of that, their military propaganda is high and so a lot of people end up in the military for many reasons, which probably include education, health care etc...
