Yes, it’s what you’re thinking; Viagra (as opposed to some super-secret Truth Pill: Little Blue Pills Among the Ways CIA Wins Friends in Afghanistan.
“For U.S. intelligence officials, this is how some crucial battles in Afghanistan are fought and won. While the CIA has a long history of buying information with cash, the growing Taliban insurgency has prompted the use of novel incentives and creative bargaining to gain support in some of the country’s roughest neighborhoods, according to officials directly involved in such operations.”
Two things to note:
- – The last round (involving billions of OUR dollars handed out as cash rewards) resulted in tens of thousands of completely innocent people being imprisoned and tortured by the our government. Cash is irresistable and most of these “war lords” don’t know any real terrorists, so what could you really expect?
I remember that one guy was hung by his hands until they were dead and had to be amputated…then what do you know they decided he was innocent after all. Huh, well, sorry about the hands thing..have a nice day.
That’s what happens when you offer millions to turn in anyone for anything.
- – For the record, this little program makes the Americans International Drug Dealers; a death-penalty offense in Afghanistan and a life offense in America. Yep, prescription drugs handed out without a prescription.. illegal as hell. I’m sure the virulently anti-drug administration will be prosecuting these guys soon. *cough* *hypocrite bastards* *cough*
So now we’ll have another round of innocent people tortured brutalized and occasionally murdered… but all the war lords will have boners so it’s okay.
