CIA planned Hussein and bin Laden gay sex vids

Fri 28 May 2010 In: International News

Saddam Hussein The USA's Central Intelligence Agency seriously considered trying to discredit Saddam Hussein by faking a video of the since-ousted  and executed dictator having gay sex. It also appears the CIA actually filmed a video which purported to be of Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaeda lieutenants sitting round a camp fire drinking alcohol and discussing their sexual encounters with boys. The Saddam Hussein video was to have been produced with a deliberately grainy effect to make it look as though it was filmed by a covert camera. The bin Laden video was filmed using CAI employees who looked Middle-Eastern. The plans were eventually strongly opposed by the CIA's director of clandestine operations.
