Viagra. The word invokes a range of thoughts and emotions, from feelings of lust and desire to embarrassment or amusement. It has been an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction.

In the late 1990s, after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan and imposed Sharia law, they banned many things including television, music, and sexual activity. This led to a sharp decline in erectile dysfunction medication sales in Afghanistan.

In 1998, with no other options for satisfying their citizens' needs for sex-related prescription drugs that were forbidden by the Taliban regime, Afghan men began sending out requests to physicians outside of Afghanistan via faxes or e-mails.

The CIA is always looking for new and creative ways to get information out of people in wartime. In their most recent operation, the agents stumbled across a unique way of motivating informants- Viagra! The drug has two powerful effects: it can be used as currency or incentive enough to motivate local intelligence sources all while introducing them to some of society's wondrous 21st century advances like medicine that treats erectile dysfunction (ED).

The CIA soon found this information through intercepted messages on Al Qaeda computers and saw an opportunity. They got together with Pfizer Inc., one of the largest producers of ED medications at the time, and delivered 100 boxes - each containing 12 Viagra pills - into Kabul.

In the war against terrorism, a new weapon had been deployed. Viagra was being used as an intelligence tool by the CIA in Afghanistan to induce impotence and infertility among Taliban fighters. The drug was distributed on the streets of Kandahar, via local dealers, with instructions to take three pills before engaging in sexual activity.

For centuries, tribal chiefs were known as powerful men because their wives could ensure future leaders through childbirth while showing fidelity at home. This was true whether it took one wife or more than one woman per chief's needs; however once America came into Afghanistan and began dispensing oral contraceptives like candy-the need for childbearing became

A female agent of the Afghan National Police had a hard time convincing tribal chiefs in Afghanistan to show her their wives. They resisted, saying that it was against tradition for them to let out any information about their family life. However, once they were given four packets of Viagra pills and told the role these would play during interrogations - it's not difficult imagining what happened next!
