US: How did ISIS Get So Many Toyota Trucks?

Reportedly the US government has contacted Toyota, and has asked the Japanese car maker to explain just how ISIS has got hold of so many of its four-wheel pickup trucks. The Toyota Tacoma and Toyota Land Cruisers have become fixtures in the terror group’s propaganda videos. Toyota says it does not know how ISIS obtained the vehicles but they claim to be “supporting” the inquiry made by the Treasury Department. The Tacoma is apparently a durable truck that has proven useful for terrorists who are fighting against lightly armed special forces. The truck is “fast, maneuverable, and packs a big punch [when it’s mounted with] a 50-caliber [machine gun] that easily defeats body armor on soldiers and penetrates lightly armored vehicles as well”
