Tancredo Ad Shows Mock Attack on a Mall

Fringe Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo--who's running on a strong anti immigration platform--has unveiled an ad in Iowa depicting an attack on a shopping mall. The ad comes just a week after the FBI downplayed a supposed terrorist threat on malls in Los Angeles and Chicago.

Incidentally, I think the ad bears a striking resemblance to the image from the cover story from our September 2005 issue examining mall security. Compare a screen grab from the last part of the ad with our September 2005 cover.
