SEATTLE -- An advertising campaign in Seattle meant to lead to more arrests of suspected terrorists is being called racist by some critics.
Ad executives say the point of the campaign is 'A Tip from the Public has the Power to Save Lives."
The FBI rolled out this ad campaign on billboards and buses in Seattle. It shows the faces of 16 of the world's most wanted terrorists.
But, Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott is calling on the FBI to pull the ads, calling the campaign racist.
"Terrorists come in all shapes and sizes in this world. If you're gonna talk about terrorists then don't just talk about people with brown skin. How many white faces were there on there?" said McDermott.
There is one Caucasian in the campaign: Omar Hammami, 29, an Alabama native.
But of the 32 people on the FBI's Most Wanted terrorist list, only six are not of Middle Eastern origin.
