Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wa) can go fuck himself. I see not one single white person on that ad. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wa) should go pink mist his head.

Middle Easterners, Africans, Russians, Caucasians, Asians, Latinos. What group ISN'T represented in that list?

Exactly. The list is pretty inclusive. It even lists a white American, Adam Gadahn.

Yes, there are Caucasians, unfortunately their surnames have decidedly Muslim roots. The terrorist certain elements on the Left are pining for are certainly Caucasian, but they must also be American, ultra religious (provided that religion is Christian), and conservative. Unfortunately, none of the men in this ad fit that mold so, naturally, it promotes discrimination.

If one person like that actually committed a terrorist act, he'd be on the list. Dead center and twice as big as the rest.

How about we come to a middle ground and do what the MSM tried to do with the Boston bombers, claim they are, "Tea Party" Muslims?

Which face on the card do I have to get punched to get the $25M? Would suck to hunt one of these guys down and not even be worth $1M.
Ayman al-Zawahiri (not pictured) is going to be the terrorist worth $25 million. The largest bounty for the pictured men is Ahmed Abdi Aw-Mohamed at $7 million.

Link for the complete list.

'Faces of Global Terrorism' bus ads being pulled
By KOMO Staff & news services Published: Jun 25, 2013 at 5:48 PM PDT

SEATTLE (AP) - The FBI says it's pulling some advertisements off buses in the Seattle area, after some people complained that they stereotyped Muslims.

The ads, which began running this month in connection with a State Department program, features pictures of 16 men wanted around the globe for terrorist activities below the words: "Faces of Global Terrorism."

Among those criticizing the ads was U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott of Seattle, who suggested they gave the impression that "terrorism only comes from one religion or one color of people," and said the ads might increase the risk of hate crimes against Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim Americans.

"You're pointing a finger at a group of people, profiling them," McDermott said last week. "I don't think that's fair and I don't think its good for our society. It doesn't make us safer."

McDermott sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director
Robert Mueller, expressing concern over the ad campaign.

Some Seattle residents agreed with McDermott that the ads went too far.

"It's a good concept, but the way they have it displayed, or to display that concept--(that's) not a good way to do it," said Todd Helmarson.

Seattle FBI Special Agent Fred Gutt says the agency agrees that the ads could be taken that way. The FBI is working swap out those ads with others promoting the State Department's "Rewards for Justice" program.
