Secret weapon in the war on terror: Viagra



The blogosphere is alive at this slow news time of year with comments on this story about CIA operatives in Afghanistan using Viagra's little blue pills as an inducement to tribal leaders to cooperate:

The Afghan chieftain looked older than his 60-odd years, and his bearded face bore the creases of a man burdened with duties as tribal patriarch and husband to four younger women. His visitor, a CIA officer, saw an opportunity, and reached into his bag for a small gift.

Four blue pills. Viagra.

"Take one of these. You'll love it," the officer said. Compliments of Uncle Sam.

The enticement worked. The officer, who described the encounter, returned four days later to an enthusiastic reception. The grinning chief offered up a bonanza of information about Taliban movements and supply routes -- followed by a request for more pills.


Hey, this could be a major breakthrough. Afghan men of some consequence are allowed up to four wives, which can become, er, taxing -- and not necessarily just for the older guys. After all, there's only so much time in a day for AK-47 and RPG practice, tending the horses and goats, staging raids on neighboring tribes and NATO troops, getting ready for the latest jirga, and of course, let's not forget about bringing in the dope harvest. Your average Ghilzai or Durrani chieftain comes home after a long, hard day of fighting in the hills to face a gaggle of needy wives.

This man could use some USAid -- so by all means, let's give it to him! For that matter, why don't we air drop supplies of the little blue pills into every Taliban-dominated village and district and see what happens?
