texas jihadi plumber truck

A Texas plumber is suing a Houston car dealership after the Ford F-250 he traded in wound up on the Syrian battlefield as a jihadi war wagon. According to The New York Times, which was given a copy of the lawsuit:

After images of the truck appeared online, the plumber, Mark Oberholtzer of Galveston County, claims he lost business and received hundreds of threats that accused him of being a terrorist sympathizer. Mr. Oberholtzer is seeking more than $1 million in damages. …

According to the lawsuit, the dealer sold the truck at auction in November 2013, and it was exported from Houston to Mersin, Turkey, the following month.

From Turkey, it apparently made its way to Syria and wound up being adapted to carry an anti-aircraft gun in its flatbed manned by jihadi fighters.

Apparently, when ISIS commands the market for Toyotas, other jihadi groups have to settle for what they can get.
