The CIA's Plot to Make Osama and Saddam Into Gay Porn StarsS

Washington Post's SpyTalk blog offers a most unusual revelation: The CIA faked a video of Osama bin Laden bragging about "conquests with boys," and wanted to "flood Iraq" with a fake sex tape of Saddam Hussein banging a young boy.

Preparing for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, SpyTalk's Jeff Stein writes, the CIA's Iraq Operations group entertained various ideas for undermining Saddam Hussein.

One was to create a video purporting to show the Iraqi dictator having sex with a teenage boy, according to two former CIA officials familiar with the project.

"It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera," said one of the former officials. "Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session."

The idea was to then "flood Iraq with the videos," the former official said.

They abandoned the project not because it was stupid, but because "Saddam playing with boys would have no resonance in the Middle East—nobody cares... We always mistake our own taboos as universal." I thought Iraq wasn't that gay-friendly, either?

Anyway, the most important revelation about the plot to turn our enemies into gay porn stars is that the CIA actually completed one video of Osama bin Laden.

The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory. The actors were drawn from "some of us darker-skinned employees," he said.
