"I’d like to remind you that the 2 people whose images were put together using parts of my face have since been assassinated."

"I’m going to sue the FBI because they have not made things right apart from offering a weak apology through clenched teeth."

Got to the leftwing thing and stopped reading.

Is this an FBI photo or a before and after?

traditionalguy said...

Sue baby, sue.

Lawyers need a jobs bill too.

Peano said...

I’m going to sue the FBI because they have not made things right ...

Um, don't they first have to make things wrong?

Maguro said...

“I’d like to remind you that the two people whose images were put together using parts of my face have since been assassinated.

Yes, and...?

Scott M said...

How ineffective are our special ops people that we didn't double-tap that guy too...just to be sure.

Mitochondri-Allie said...

Ridiculous. I wonder what being left wing has to do with it though.

Coketown said...

Llamazarez should cut his losses, grow a beard, and move to Pakistan. He could be a bin Laden look-alike. I'm sure with bin Laden's celebrity status in the area, Llamazarez would need burka repellant to keep the Muslim honeys off him.

Nora said...

"Gaspar Llamazares, a member of the leftwing United Left party, says he is planning to take legal action against the FBI ...

And if he wins all the money will go to poor and downtroden. Right?

“I’d like to remind you that the two people whose images were put together using parts of my face have since been assassinated.”

...because of something they did, not how they looked.

Fred4Pres said...

I would be pissed off too. That said, he does look like Osama bin Laden.

Scott M said...

You're forgetting the particular political bent of this guy.

Rose said...

So, they used his HAIR? How did he even find out about this? Doesn't make any sense.

AJ Lynch said...

Can't we keep anything secret anymore?

EDH said...

Beside the hair, the only feature it looks like they kept was the crease across the forehead.

Does Osama wear a baseball cap backwards or something?

Ron said...

All this time...I thought it was Ringo....never saw those two together, have you?

Mary Beth said...

But the ears are different!

madAsHell said...

So....he has the same barber as bin Laden?? I think I'd be looking for a new barber.

"an apology through clenched teeth"....LOL, you can't make this stuff up!!

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Right. Because that so totally looks just like you. Wow. Twins. Separated at birth.

I guess the FBI is telling you you are boring looking. That's what you get for being the "generic" Spaniard looking kind of guy.

ndspinelli said...

This guy should be thankful we got Osama..otherwise men in black fatiques might have given him a double tap and then checked his DNA.

Phil said...

Anybody else think he looks like Krugman?

edutcher said...

Just a suggestion for Senor Llamazares, but, if he sees a bunch of guys in multi-cam, carrying SCARs, saying stuff like, "Hooah", or, "Hooyah", it might be prudent to duck.

Hoosier Daddy said...

I thought that was Krugman.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Heh, Phil. I swear I didn't see your post.

cubanbob said...

The only good commie is a dead commie. The Feds are once again sleeping on the job.

Curious George said...

Couldn't they just have used a picture of...I don't know...Bin Laden?

By the way, the guy looks like ex-PGA player and now Golf Channel analyst Frank Nobilo.

timmaguire42 said...

I'm curious as to why they use his photo to represent other people. Why not use photos of them?

If I were him, I'd be creeped out too that people who look like me keep getting whacked.

ricpic said...

All this time...I thought it was Ringo...

Whose mug could stand in for every last known arab terrorist.


And picking up on DBQ's point...what resemblance?

Scott M said...

And picking up on DBQ's point...what resemblance?

Agreed. He looks more like tiny tot President "We have no homosexuals in Iran" Achmadinnerjacket.

Curious George said...

Maybe they should send old Senior Llamazares the last photo of OBL and tell him this is what he could look like in the future if he doesn't STFU. That would make it even-steven.

That dude doesn't look anything like Bin Laden.

If the guy hadn't opened his mouth, nobody would have ever known his picture had been used. He's not concerned about getting killed, he's concerned with being an attention whore.

Pogo said...

He should sue Cost Cutters instead.

Ron said...

The conspiracy goes deeper than imagined!

What did Pete "Best" know....and when did he know it?

Fred4Pres said...

Think of all the people that went into making Mitt Romney.

Okay, that was mean.

Scott M said...

If the picture were zoomed out, would he be wearing a Members Only jacket?

AJ Lynch said...

Members Only jacket heh! I think I still have one somewhere.

virgil xenophon said...

"members only jacket"

Hey! Those were Kuul ! I had one! (Cuz I was kuul)

BTW, exactly how DID those jackets become the butt of jokes? Being an ex-AF pilot they reminded me somewhat of flight-jackets and I liked the look. So how come, how come, how come, did they end up as a bit of cultural stereotypical trivia? Did I sleep thru that class?

AJ Lynch said...

Virgil- I think because they were so popular that even our fathers eventually had one too? Or maybe it was mocked because of the name? "Members only" but everyone apparently was a member. heh.

Smilin' Jack said...

""I’d like to remind you that the 2 people whose images were put together using parts of my face have since been assassinated.""

And that's probably the biggest contribution he'll ever make to the world.

Lem said...

Lots of articles have been put together using Althouse face.. hopefully no one has since been assassinated ;)

Colin said...

I can't quite grasp that no one's pointed out yet that the guy is probably suing the FBI not because of his face being used, but because he is probably against the concept of assassination.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

Is it just me, or does the original look a lot more like Paul Krugman than like OBL?

wv: cessneos. Obviously the next generation of Cessnas. Probably electric, with solar panels on the wings.

Peano said...

Looks more like Julius La Rosa to me. Maybe he should get in on the action.

Cedarford said...

"an apology through clenched teeth"....LOL, you can't make this stuff up!!

=============
The way it probably played out was STate told the FBI that there was this connected Left-Wing idiot pol in Spain all upset and the FBI needed to make nice-nice.
FBI leadership rolled the shit downhill and picked some hapless agent in Europe having nothing to do with it to trundle over to Spain and meet with him.
And found the Spaniard to be a major league, anti-American, socialist asshole.
Who then delivered the obligated apology his bosses forced him into doing - which an obvious lack of sincerity.
Had Obama done the apology, the Spaniard would have been convinced of sincerity, and have been happy.

Craig said...

I thought that was Krugman.

Dammit, thought I'd be first. Dead ringer in my opinion.

mesquito said...

Alright, where's the goddam debate blog, Althouse?

PETER V. BELLA said...

Hey, at least they apologized. Sheesh these foreigners.

Teri Lester said...

Public figure. Next.

Fernandinande said...

The hair and forehead are the same (a copy), but every other facial feature is quite different. What's the big deal?

gutless said...

"I’d like to remind you that the 2 people whose images were put together using parts of my face have since been assassinated."

One more to go.
