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.

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.

    Can we say “Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Iran, or Saudi Arabia?”

    • StevetheHun

      I think they either came from Saudi Arabia or some Moslem guy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Sent them.

    Someone needs to tell these geniuses that the Toyota HiLux is the most popular truck in the ME.
    Better question would be, where did all those Ford F250 Super Duty’s, and Hummvee’s come from.

    • Razedbywolvs

      During the Iraq War, stockpiled U.S. military HMMWVs were given to the Iraqi Army, Iraqi Security Forces. The Iraqi Military has more than 10,000+ Humvees Some of these have been captured by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant in the 2014 uprising.
      Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant: 2,300
      Afghanistan has ordered 3,334 more in 2010 and 2011 for its National Police, National Guard and other military.
      It looks like Humvees there the second most poplar truck in the ME.

      • Dan Morgan

        Yeah, I figure most of the vehicles were taken out of Mosul, we left a bunch for the haji’s.
        I worked as a contractor out of Q-West in 05′-06′.

      • Albert Griggs

        And the US military has not even TRIED to bomb them for over a YEAR “………………
        PUTIN. 2016

        • Razedbywolvs

          Yes they did. Unfortunately they bombed them with supplies so they could chase down all the christens that had fled to the hills.

  • BigGaySteve

    Saudi Arabia cant accept any “refuse-gees” but it can spend money.

  • ccambridge

    Isis needs to be riding camels and not using western cars. Can they be manufactured with radiation and pigskin interior. Now that would be funny.

    • Der Krieger

      Since when did Japan become “western”?

      • Reverend Draco

        Since Toyota started building cars and trucks in the US.

  • Maddog

    They got the pickup trucks the same way they acquired the Abrams Tanks and other weapons, Obama gave them to them. Remember Benghazi. I bet Hilliery has an email confirming it on her server in the toilet.

  • doryinaz

    Toyota lies….oh, what a surprise…too bad those defective cars and trucks don’t end up with ISIS….but then we wouldn’t sell them defective vehicles….

  • paulgilpin

    right hand meet left hand.
    this article is BS. the USSA left those vehicles there for the ragheads to claim.
    this BS gov’t agency is asking the wrong question trying to deflect deflect deflect from how the ragheads really got their vehicles.

  • Albert Griggs

    Why don’t they wonder how ISISrael got so many Amercan WAR MACHINES and WEAPONS? Even better ……. Ask why the American military did not blow them up …… And the RUSSIANS had to go in and DO IT. Sounds like TREASON in the PENTAGON.

  • Fantazine Davol

    I remember when ISIS was first making the news there was a story about one of these trucks driven in an ISIS video originating from a Texas used car lot. Go figure.

  • Jim

    As usual, the Russians are two steps ahead of you on this one .

  • Ken, Megapolis
