Afghan women and girls to justify 'our' involvement there, there's this report of the CIA and boner pills.
Of course, in the West, there was the inevitable tee-heeing, or 'dick snark', as matttbastard terms it.
For me, though, here's the breath-taker (from the original WaPo piece; emphasis mine):
Afghan tribal leaders often had four wives -- the maximum number allowed by the Koran -- and aging village patriarchs were easily sold on the utility of a pill that could "put them back in an authoritative position," the official said.
Yeah. That's what 'we' are doing in Afghanistan. Not building schools, not restoring human rights to women. We're putting old men back in power. Over women and children.
Just so we have that straight. . .
