WASHINGTON — They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Try telling that to Spanish lawmaker Gasperon Llamazers.

On Tuesday, the angry lawmaker rejected the United States’ apology after the FBI used his photo to create a digitally aged image of  Osama bin Laden, the Associated Press reported.

Not only that, but the member of Spain’s United Left party demanded the U.S. investigate the matter, AP reported.

“Apologies are not enough,” he told a news conference at Parliament after the U.S. ambassador issued an apology Monday, according to AP. “I want a thorough investigation into this disgraceful case, which not only causes concern but also worry and indignation over the behavior of the FBI.”
