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.
