    US embassy apologizes to leftist Spanish politician who is angry that the FBI used his image to help create wanted poster showing how Osama Bin Laden might look now

    The FBI used a photograph of a Spanish lawmaker as part of a digitally enhanced Osama bin Laden wanted poster, and the U.S. Embassy here has apologized to the angry politician, a spokesman said. "That was not normal procedure. It was completely unintentional and the FBI is looking into it to prevent it from happening again," U.S. Embassy spokesman Will Ostick told CNN on Saturday.
    Ostick said he called the leftist politician, Gaspar Llamazares, to "express regret" on behalf of the embassy after the lawmaker's hair and forehead wrinkles, taken from a photo, were mixed into an FBI image showing the possible appearance of Bin Laden now.
    The embassy received various calls from the Spanish government earlier Saturday expressing concern about the use of Llamazares's features in the FBI's depiction, Ostick said.

    WHAT? Nobody interested in how this spanish politician found out his photo had been used?

    You could hardly have deduced it from the photo...intersting back story here boys and girls. Wonder what the real deal is?
