FBI’s bus ad taken down for depiction of terrorists

FBI was doing its job

The folks on the FBI bus signs are terrorists, Rep. Jim McDermott, and they should be treated accordingly. [“FBI’s bus ads taken down for terrorist depiction,” NW Wednesday, June 26.]

That is what the FBI was attempting to do until you opened your mouth. Not one other politician complained about these ads, even the ones from California. McDermott has dragged us down to an all-time low for Washingtonians.

Dick Riddle, Tonasket

Sign was accurate depiction of terrorists

There were pictures of 12 terrorists. Not caricatures, but actual terrorists, and they are all dark-skinned. That is what they actually look like. How can we recognize them if the pictures don’t look like them?

Put them back on the buses. It might just stop a terrorist attack if someone saw them and called the police.

John Porter, Kirkland
