Finally US Officials Are Asking Toyota How Exactly ISIS Got Hundreds of Its Trucks

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?

(I’m paraphrasing.)


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.

This might be the best insurance against economic collapse (Ad)

They mean so many, someone even made a parody video about it on YouTube showing all the footage of ISIS driving around in Toyotas.

The Iraqi Ambassador to the United States, Lukman Faily, told ABC News that in addition to re-purposing older trucks, his government believes ISIS has acquired “hundreds” of “brand new” Toyotas in recent years.

Some of the trucks even bear the ISIS caliphate symbol on the side.

But Toyota claims they have a strict “do not sell to terrorists” policy and they have no idea how ISIS became the majority of the Middle Eastern Toyota customer base. They also claim they have no way to track stolen vehicles whatsoever, not even in 2015.

    Because the type of truck they use is the biggest issue. What about the US weapons and whatnot they keep turning up with?

    • CMRedwood

      And nobody questions why the long convoy drove hundreds of miles from Syria to Iraq out in the open unmolested by NATO or anyone else. The weapons are explained away with the BS excuse they confiscated them from the “moderate” terrorists.

      • Joel W

        Oh yea, gotta love the ol “moderate” rebel ploy. If this was a movie and not dangerously real life, it would be such a wonderful comedy. Mel Brooks couldn’t come up with a story line this utterly absurd.

      Obama has been accidently on purpose dropping supplies to them all along…ISIS is a division of the CIA plus mercenaries…no doubt tax payers here have funded much of this…

      • Joel W

        Or is it purposely by accident? Ha. As far as funding, I like to think that its at least partially being paid for with CIA drug/extortion money.

  • CMRedwood

    What percentage of the American public knew the N. Korean army fought American troops in 1950 using trucks made in the Henry Ford Gorki plant in Soviet Russia? Follow the money to the international banksters.

    • Dalton

      No doubt 100s of millions of US tax dollars went into funding ISIS…….

      • Rachel Flanagan

        Yep. As usual they over played their hand too.
        They shot ISIS like a low budget music video,
        “Guerrilla style” would have made it a smidgeon more believable.

  • eddysach

    I was wondering about that myself…but the true capitalists as the coveting greedy rat bags that they truly are…will sell you the rope that hangs them….(what really does anyone take with them when they die?….I ain’t never seen a hearse with a luggage rack)

  • ajaxJohnson

    Nothing down and no payments for 90 days.

    What? No Credit?….Saudi Arabia is here to help you

  • ter ber

    Excellent reporting Melissa! And while we are at it, the ghost of Princess Diana would like to know what Corporations have been making those LAND MINES that have been killing and maiming mankind for over half a century!

    We buy ISIS Toyota trucks, and our vets don’t get to see a doctor.

    This is why I sold my toyota. I now drive a Nissan.
