The U.S. Treasury Department’s “Terror Financing Unit” (wow, the name sounds like the unit that actually finances terror, how Orwellian) whose task it is to make sure Western goods don’t end up in the hands of terrorists is finally asking Toyota something we’ve all been wondering for a long time now:

Why do all these ISIS videos and pictures that come out look like Middle Eastern Toyota truck commercials?

Via ABC News:

U.S. counter-terror officials have asked Toyota, the world’s second largest auto maker, to help them determine how ISIS has managed to acquire the large number of Toyota pick-up trucks and SUVs seen prominently in the terror group’s propaganda videos in Iraq, Syria and Libya, ABC News has learned…

“We briefed Treasury on Toyota’s supply chains in the Middle East and the procedures that Toyota has in place to protect supply chain integrity,” said Ed Lewis, Toyota’s Washington-based director of public policy and communications.

By “a large number,” what they really mean is hundreds of them.

They mean that pretty much every time you see ISIS driving around with giant guns blazing anywhere in Syria, Iraq or Libya, they are doing it in a Toyota Hilux truck.

They mean that ISIS is literally patrolling the streets the way an army would in those countries not in tanks but in Toyotas.
