I forsee this design having vast impact on the national terrorist community. I mean, it clearly says “no” after all. Who ignores that?
This thing deserves to become its own internet sensation.
Who owns the T-SHIRT rights?
Next up: “No Terrorists” tshirts and keychains.
I ain’t fraid of one who utilizes the systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve political objectives
Man, we can’t even keep the terrorists fully behind forbidden symbols. This war on terror is hopeless.
Yeah, except it’s NOT the “international ‘forbidden’ symbol” because the line for that goes from top left to bottom right.
All the CIA had to do was look at a “no left turn” sign and they could have had it correct.
Remember: When waterboarding, don’t cross the streams.
Thats absolutely TERRORble! Ha Ha!
I must say, I favor the logos of the actual terrorists better… Previously on BoingBoing: Terrorist logos: graphic design
Er, I mean…
Terrorist logos: graphic design
Looks like the Ghostbuster’s Logo
“Who ya gonna call? Terrorist Busters!”
This symbol is offensive to ninja citizens who exercise their Second Amendment rights to own semi-automatic weapons for home defense. It it so on now.
It appears this graphic is in the public domain, who wants to print the t-shirts?

Wait… The CIA uses Plone?
Not only does the new CIA Anti-terrorist logo look hilariously like the Ghostbusters symbol… but a quick ‘Find/Replace’ in the lyrics can turn Ray Parker Jr.’s Ghostbusters theme into a paranoid, patriotic, jingoistic propaganda song:
If there’s something strange in your neighborhood
Who you gonna call?
If there’s something weird and it don’t look good
Who you gonna call?
I ain’t afraid of no Terrorist!
Fucking Gumby. I always knew he was up to no good.
Looks just like Chewbacca. Crappy looking laser rifle though.
ghurley @ #14: Yep. Cool, huh?
You can see a list of other high profile Plone sites here: http://plone.net/sites
Huey Lewis & The News – I Want A New Drug (for those unfamiliar with the original).
Don’t cross the streams. It would be bad.
The crypto for this URL is 128 bit RC4. Why aren’t they using 256 bit AES?
… because inciting people to use “munitions” on the CIA website would not quite be in the spirit of an anti-terrorism campaign?
At first, their clients are few and far between, and the Terrorist-busters have to depend on their individual talents to keep the business alive: Dr. Egon Spengler is a Terrorist genius, Dr. Raymond “Ray” Stantz is an expert on Terrorist history and WMD’s, and Dr. Peter Venkman has charm and business savvy, although he is in some ways a charlatan.
Although he initially comes off as a bit of a wise guy, Venkman eventually finds a subtly heroic side to himself when he learns that a creature called “Osama” is haunting the land of America, a client who has become the object of his lustful (and possibly deeper) intentions.
Reminds me of this Sinn Fein t-shirt http://www.theregister.co.uk/2003/07/24/snipers_fire_at_sinn_feins/
I’m puzzled, Mark. Why are you reblogging this 2002 item? Does everyone have amnesia of how this was blogged all over back in 2002, after its famous 2001 posting?
