CIA Toyed With Idea of Osama bin Laden Doll to ‘Turn Afghan Children from Leader’
The CIA developed prototypes for an Osama bin Laden action figure in 2005.
“The CIA has revealed it once considered creating and using a very different type of weapon in the fight against terrorism: a doll.
“An Osama bin Laden action figure with an evil-looking face.
“The spy agency began quietly developing the bin Laden doll in 2005, as first reported by The Washington Post, and recruited the help of the former head of the Hasbro toy company, Donald Levine.
“The CIA’s proposed plan, according to the newspaper, was to produce the dolls, with their bright red faces and spooky green eyes, and hand them out to children in Afghanistan in hopes of turning them away from the al Qaeda leader…”
Would these kids be familiar enough with Star Wars to recognize that the bottom center one resembles baddie Darth Maul? It’s immaterial, because the CIA would be just as likely to actually create a likeness of bin Laden as they would be to create the real one qua terrorist mastermind. Yeah right. We’re probably also supposed to believe that his death on 5.2.2011 was staged.
