On December 22, 2002 CAIR, a national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group, issued a press release expressing "outrage at a Doug Marlette syndicated editorial cartoon, headlined 'What Would Mohammed Drive?' showing the Prophet Muhammad driving a nuclear bomb-laden truck similar to that used by Timothy McVeigh in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing... The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called for an apology from Marlette's syndicator, Tribune Media Services, and from his employer, the Tallahassee Democrat."
