Spanish Politician Gaspar Llamazares May Sue FBI for Age-Progressed Photo of Osama Bin Laden

Spanish politician Gaspar Llamazares and former leader of Spain’s United Left communist party threatens to prosecute the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for using his photo to produce al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s modern image. No similarity in ideology

FBI technicians may have “cut and pasted” forehead, hair and jaw-line from a photo of Gaspar Llamazares used in a previous campaign, to produce the altered image of Osama Bin Laden.

The US State Department was forced to withdraw the altered image, which was distributed worldwide last week. The photo appeared on a U.S. State Department Web site, where a reward of up to $25 million is offered for bin Laden, wanted in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya
