That's right - in 2005, the Central Intellignce Agency decided to create a doll of Osama Bin Laden that morphed into a devil.

The doll's face was created with a heat-dissolving substance that peeled off to reveal a red-faced, green-eyed 'demon' - and was going to be marketed at children.

The CIA wanted to show kids what a monster Bin Laden was and 'win hearts and minds', apparently.

However, the project never went ahead as planned. 

Speaking to the Washington Post, However, CIA spokesman said: “To our knowledge, there were only three individual action figures ever created, and these were merely to show what a final product might look like.

"After being presented with these examples, the CIA declined to pursue this idea and did not produce or distribute any of these action figures."
