32. I don't think we'll agree on this.
I do know that I'd much rather see the CIA bribing people with blue pills than waterboarding people. And it's not like this sort of bribery doesn't work - look at the damage the Russians were able to do to American spy networks with Aldrich Ames. Their mistake was bribing Ames with money - he outed himself by taking hundreds of thousands of dollars and spending it on a new house, a Jaguar, and so on. We're smart in that we're not giving sources visible bling.

If by bribing Afghan locals with Viagra, we can get Taliban supply routes and movements and such, IMHO, it's well worth it.
