    US Officials Ask How ISIS Got So Many Toyota Trucks {ABC News**



    US Officials Ask How ISIS Got So Many Toyota Trucks
    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.

    Toyota says it does not know how ISIS obtained the vehicles and is “supporting” the inquiry led by the Terror Financing unit of the Treasury Department -- part of a broad U.S. effort to prevent Western-made goods from ending up in the hands of the terror group.

    “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.

    Toyota has a “strict policy to not sell vehicles to potential purchasers who may use or modify them for paramilitary or terrorist activities,” Lewis said. He said it is impossible for the company to track vehicles that have been stolen, or have been bought and re-sold by middlemen.

    Used cars trade is a huge side business in Japan.

    I cannot believe how incompetent the US government operatives are.

    Gee, I don't know...how did they get so many Humvees?

    This is so ridiculous. Toyotas sell like Hot cakes over the sand pit, I'm sure it'd be like stealing an F150, Silvy, etc. here.

    These are the same people wondering what Putin's real intentions are.

    The TPP is already hurting American carmakers and helping the Japanese!

    There is no reason why ISIS can't be driving in brand new American pickups!

    They're stolen, bought used or bought by another country and handed to them.

    The possible confusion is quite understandable given that Putin has more of everything desirable than all of the current US Government put together.

    Oh and you can throw in about twenty five or more US State's worth - if you want.

    Or the last .......list of US Presidents since President Kennedy but excluding President Carter.

    Yep.... even with President Reagan in there...... you can't get a positive needle never mind a win.

    And I jus' gotta' tell ya'.......... there is a fair chance of a Putin for President write in initiative - right here @ home.

    Golly, you just know that given how the first sixty Sorties with fifty Targets so massively - and so completely outperformed 7,800 Sorties of ours of recent vintage ( ignoring Drones and other Criminal Partner activity of course ) a whole bunch of Toyota product is now or soon will be toast.


    I believe we can all celebrate the threefer' plus plus involved here.


    Amazing what a lack of foreign entanglements in your own political process @ home can produce - in foreign affairs is it not ?

    Right, that's exactly my point. So it certainly shouldn't be surprising to our government how Toyotas end up in the wrong hands when our own Humvees do as well.
