CIA Planned Psyops Using Magical Melting Osama Bin Laden Demon Dolls To Terrify Afghan Children

Because distributing dolls with Osama as demon was somehow going to turn the little children's heads toward America.

Wow, there are some really creative minds at the CIA. Not the brightest bulbs in the bunch, but creative nevertheless.

Washington Post:

For more than a decade, the CIA has deployed drones, satellites, spies, informants and tracking devices to thwart al-Qaeda in Pakistan.

The spy agency also considered a plan to wage war with toys.

Beginning in about 2005, the CIA began secretly developing a ­custom-made Osama bin Laden ­action figure, according to people familiar with the project. The face of the figure was painted with a heat-dissolving material, designed to peel off and reveal a red-faced bin Laden who looked like a demon, with piercing green eyes and black facial markings.

The goal of the short-lived project was simple: spook children and their parents, causing them to turn away from the actual bin Laden.

Ultimately they scrapped the plan after commissioning the original GI Joe designer to design and manufacture them. According to the article, there are a few prototypes in existence, including at least one at CIA headquarters.

You know, this reminds me of the Norfolk, Virginia group that handed out fetus dolls to schoolchildren to indoctrinate them against abortion at an early age. CIA imaginators probably thought of that in their off-duty hours.

Were any of the dudes cooking up these plots parents? WTF.
