Khalid Sheik Soprano

Captured Mohammed

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of seeing this 2003 photo of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed accompany every current story on the man. Every single time you see him, he looks like the lowliest of moles who might work for Tony Soprano. (I use this fictional Mafia character in keeping with our pop media-focused culture.)

We've all bad hair days. Let the man's activities speak for themselves in a court of law. We should not need this sort of photo sensationalism, which used to be relegated to the domain of the news tabloids. Let us show more dignity by running an updated photo. We can afford a new picture.

If you got woken up at two AM by a bunch of armed men who trussed you up and then tore your home apart, you'd look like a bad hair day too. Myself, I think the resemblance to Ron Jeremy is just to close to ignore.

Alright you! I s'pose you're referring to Mr. Jeremy's "spherical hirsuteness"? Not being on the inside myself, I'm guessing it refers to the back hair. Being something of a prude, I don't wish to delve further into the matter.

But exactly--give the devil his due. We are an ostensibly civilized society. If this guy is such a big shot, stop showing his booking photo and show him as he appeared while he was conducting his operations, or as he he appears now. I for one am tired of the pulp fiction graphics.
