CIA's Osama bin Laden Doll Sells for $12,000: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Osama bin Laden prototype action figure created by the CIA to be distributed across Afghanistan sold at auction for nearly $12,000.

The 12-inch doll, code-named Devil Eyes, was one of three dolls created by the CIA in 2005 to scare children and their parents from supporting bin Laden or al-Qaida."

The project was eventually rejected by the CIA, and that`s why today you won`t find any Afghan children playing with Osama dolls.

The doll was created by the spook agency to scare children and their parents from supporting bin Laden and al-Qaida.

The CIA is clueless about the sensibilities of Muslims; I`m convinced that had the dolls been distributed in Afghanistan the result would have been a spike in Afghan men joining al-Qaida.

A doll with devil eyes is anathema to Westerners, but to adherents of religion of Islam it`s a heroic figure battling Western infidels.
