War on Terror's Terrifyingly Terrible Logo.

(click image for closer look)
Who You Gonna Call?

I'm kidding...this is just a sketch my 8-year-old second cousin did.
No! Actually, I'm kidding about the kidding! This IS the CIA's Official "Terrorist Buster" logo. John McCloskey at More, Better Lies alerted me to it, and also pointed out the obvious inspirational source for the design—the Ghostbusters logo.
Funny, I haven't seen this baby featured on any charts and graphs during this Administration's intelligence briefings to the Press.
The "terrorist" represented here reminds me of the black leotard-clad Lugo Men from the Japanese children's show "Space Giants" (seen in this YouTube clip gathered in front of their evil leader, Rodak).
RELATED: here's one of the CIA's disappointingly innocuous ads.
previously in LOGOS:
1. QSOL's Oral Logo.
2. The EdgE of reason.
3. The "GPH" killer strikes again.
4. Galderma's painted naked body Logos.
5. The most Douche ever splattered on a polo shirt.
6. What the marketing director of Chase jerks off to every morning.
7. What the marketing director of Deutsche Bank jerks off to every morning.

Where did the terrorist get a machine gun that has a hand holding a sword coming out of the barrel? And why?

And does it shoot hands-with-swords, or does the hand just throw the sword when you squeeze the trigger?

If the terrorists win, that would be a sin, so buy our pin.

Isn't the red slash supposed to go the other way?

I like how the red slash doesn't stop him from holding his gun and getting a few shots off.

Can't we just have a logo of a dead terrorist?

The slash IS supposed to go the other way, which gives it a DIRECT connection to the Ghostbusters logo.

The designer of the "No Ghosts" icon turned the slash the other way so type read better across it. Got that info from the special edition DVD. Has a whole section on the logo.

Overall, I'd say this looks like something my 14yo nephew would do but that would be an insult to him.

Hey you Osamas...I think the meaning is clear enough:

Just say "NO!" to Mexican wrestlers holding big sex toys.
