Officers with the Central Intelligence Agency have been handing out little blue Viagra pills to Afghan tribal leaders, some of whom have more than one wife. According to a story in The Washington Post, a CIA officer gave four of the pills to an Afghan leader in his 60s who has four wives. "Take one of these," said the CIA man. "You'll love it."

The officer who described the meeting said that he returned four days later to an enthusiastic reception, and the Afghan chieftain had a big grin on his face. The officer said the man gave up lots of information about Taliban movements and supply routes. He then asked for more pills.

As they say, I'm not making this stuff up.
