The CIA considered the possibility of Osama Bin Laden action figures

    According to young turks, the CIA actually considered the possibility of putting out Osama Bin Laden action figures, but decided against it in light of it being in bad tastes.  However, that didn't stop them from getting the people behind GI Joe to design the prototypes for them.  Here's the video link if you want to know more:

    It only corroborates the fact that Bin Laden was CIA. Do you really think that if they had a REAL enemy like the soviets during the cold war or now by that matter they would consider Brejnev's or Putine's action figures? Obviously not. I thought they were SMARTER than that?

    Did you look at the video?  If the made a Putin doll whose face peeled of to show a green-eyed devil face I doubt that would improve US-Russia relations.

      Since when does the US want peace with Russia? Why did we wait until 1944 to help Europe when invaded by Hitler? We intervened only because Hitler lost against Russia. Had Hitler won, WW2 would have caused more human and material damages.
      Our purpose is to envenom the Middle East, Asia and Africa. It is the CIA duty. It is taken granted now.
      We refuse to acknowledge that we are declining, that we are an aging economy and to assert it we destabilize the rest of the world that willy-nilly will develop. We had our turn (the 80's).

        Don't be silly: even without a Navy (virtually destroyed Dec 7, 1941), the US played an active part in the European theatre as well as the Pacific long before 1944 (I don't remember, though, any Russian help in the Pacific theater).  Although formal war was not declared until late '41, the US replaced all British soldiers in Iceland that year.  US forces escorting convoys across the Atlantic had many encounters with German U-boats as well.

        As far as intervening because Hitler lost in Russia, Hitler lost there in part because of efforts by the US and other allies.  Had he been able to turn full attention to Russia (and keep his supply lines open in doing so) Moscovites would be speaking Russian today.

          LIE, LIE, LIE.
          Hitler invaded Poland in 1939. England stopped Hitler only because it was an island and also thanks to its RAF (Spitfires against Messerschmitts).
          Was Russia part of the alliance? No. We know why.
          Dec 1941, the Japanese destroyed an old naval base with a Jurassic type fleet. It is without saying that the US encouraged the Japanese invasion. It was the legitimacy of our engagement in ww2.
          Hitler lost in Russia because he lasted until winter, and winter is miserable in Russia. It was with the Panzer division that they thought they would win. It was its miracle solution panzers and blitzkrieg.

        Um, you were suggesting the doll meant he was in with the CIA.  I was suggesting that it didn't.  I am not sure what your reply has to do with that.
