This is not a joke headline.
Viacom's Dora and Diego are Pentagon recruiting masquerading as kiddie products.
NOTE THE POSITIVE FRAMING OF A PENTAGON WITH "ADVENTURE" on both the front and back covers of this
Go Diego Go book.

Subliminal pentagons are embedded in Steven CIA Spielberg's animations for kidz ('The Land that Time Forgot' and 'Animaniacs') and CIA-Hollywood movies, too. 'Turner and Hooch' (1989) with Tom Hanks and a big cute dog for the kidz has carefully framed and choreographed scenes that exploit this priming cue for recruiting.
The timing of this brand new Dora booklet is remarkable-

A waterboarding decoy in the 24-page Simon Spotlight booklet #29 called 'Swim, Boots, Swim!'
Dora's best friend, Boots the Monkey (as in, army boots), needs to learn to swim...so they travel across the Lawrence-of-Arabia-style sand dunes (as in, Iraq) to get to the ocean...where Mariana the Mermaid Princess (Disney tie-in plus US child-labor sweat shops on the Mariana Islands)...where-
"First, Mariana is going to teach Boots how to go underwater."
>cute picture of all three smiling and thrilled<
"She says he has to take a deep breath, hold it, and then lower his head under the water. Great job, Boots!"
>Boots kneels with his head under water with Mariana holding his hands above water as Dora dances with glee onshore.<
"Mariana" sounds like a nice Latina name, right?
That character was introduced in 2007 when Jack Abramoff's scandals were dominating the news. Abramoff and Republican honcho, Tom Delay, were lobbyists for the US territory called the North Mariana Islands rife with shell companies for child slave labor, concentration camp style. Well, of course Dora's first Mariana the Mermaid story book has elaborate SHELL-themed pictures.
How did you guess? Did Swiper tell you? "Mannn!"
Viacom/Nickelodeon's kiddie stories with Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go...are marketed to Latin Americans and are loaded with embedded military/law enforcement recruiting memes.
The American alphabet agencies want to police and infiltrate Latin Americans here in the USA and in Mexico, Central and South America.
So they plant pre-training concepts and motivations in these kiddie stories, just like the way 'Star Wars' was loaded with real military doctrines and acronyms. Pre-training to unpack later.
They also include counterpropaganda decoys to mitigate kids learning about USG atrocities against Latin Americans, like Operation Condor which becomes a cute animal rescue story with the bubbling-with-success punch line being "We caught him!"
CIA-Disney attempted to pre-bias kidz to a friendly definition of "Condor" with a 1981 decoy movie called 'Condor Man.'
So this trick has been done a few times before Dora and Diego including at the beginning of Operation Condor, 'Three Days of the Condor' (1975).
This Viacom kiddie character isn't the first time the name Dora has been used as a decoy for Wernher von Braun's Nazi camp Dora.
A few television shows have been deployed, too.
One was called 'I Married Dora' (1987-88) just before the 20th anniversary of the first moon walk.
Many decoy television shows and movies were deployed after Adolf Eichmann was captured in 1960 because of Project Paperclip, a major Cold War liability for CIA.
The name, Dora, competes with the Nazi camp called Dora-Mittelbau where Wernher von Braun used slave labor to build rockets for Hitler before working for the US.
Lots of cute little Dora market saturation the last few years helps dilute that ugly history that might surface during the 2009 40th anniversary of the first moon walk coming up in July 2009.
Compare and contrast the juxtaposition of "Dora" and "boots"-
Why put bits of scandals in children's media?
Exposing young brains to benign definitions of keywords pre-biases them even if they should somehow be exposed to the politically dangerous definition later. Lots of memory recall dynamic is 'path of least resistence' and happy thoughts can prevent or minimize nasty ones that might induce cognitive dissonance. This is the gist of both inoculation and interference theory counterpropaganda since the late 1950s. See 'priming.'
A 2002 Dora story even included inoculation against the iron-rich spheroids proving the molten metal at the Twin Towers on 9/11, something few knew about until Dr. Steven Jones published a paper in 2005.
But the spooks knew and put out their pre-emptive inoculation story for those kidz they intended to recruit when they got older.
So I check out Dora (the cute un-Nazi space explorer) periodically to see what's new.
Seems most media is CIA for kidz.
