    Misleading headline anyone?

    Was it Joe the plumber's truck?

    I wonder if he drove it to Syria to get the cash in-hand? I am going to call them and ask.

    If this guy was actually accused of aiding terrorism as the article suggests that's just laughable.

    What is not laughable is just how stupid people are, even some of this man's own friends. Making death threats to this guy and in any way linking this to Syria is insane. I wonder if Ford will use the photo in an ad? It is built Ford tough.

    I'm sure someone will try to sue Ford. I don't know if the media is purposely making these inflammatory headlines or if they are just as dumb as a bag of bricks. Then the sheeple don't use any critical thinking to decipher the article, ending up with a flawed opinion.

    I believe he sold the truck to Auto Nation and asked them to remove the signage. Evidently, that didn't happen.

    This article seems to be at the business owners request. I do not think the headline is misleading at all and the sheep where lead before the article. I laughed when he said, 'I guess next time I should remove the company's name, when I sell a vehicle.' I laughed to keep from crying about just how stupid people can be and it not being a surprise at all in our current environment.

    I sold a van I use to use for carpet cleaning without getting the entire vehicle wrap off. I now fear I'm supporting drug trafficking in Mexico

    Off topic, but I just bought a brand new vehicle from this exact dealership in September

    Joe the Plumber actually isnt a plumber anymore, since 2012, he works at the Jeep Assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio.

    As for the truck being sold at auction and ending up in Syria, im sure theres a paper trail for that.
