CIA created Osama Bin Laden action figure in 2005

This story is a little strange, but apparently in 2005 the CIA created a prototype action figure of Al Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden.

The doll named “Devil Eyes” was painted with heat-dissolving material, designed to peel off and reveal a red-faced Bin Laden who looked like a demon with green eyes.

The agency says the goal of the project was to scare children and their parents, causing them to turn away from the Al Qaeda leader.

Only three dolls were ever manufactured, but they were never delivered.

According to the Washington Post, a former Hasbro toymaker who was instrumental in the creation of the G.I. Joe toys helped craft the Bin Laden doll.
