Item description for Executive Action: 634 Ways to Kill Fidel Castro (Secret War) by Fabian Escalante...
"Escalante's review of CIA covert operations against Cuba in the early years is to be welcomed, and should be widely read-and pondered."-Noam Chomsky
A unique view presented by the man responsible for countering innumerable assassination attempts against the Cuban leader. As Cuba's former counterintelligence chief, Fabin Escalante reviews more than six hundred CIA plots to assassinate Fidel Castro, a project code-named "Executive Action." Although melodramatic and at times quite comical, these CIA plans were deadly serious-and -unconstitutional-as subsequent US government inquiries concluded, including the 1975 commission headed by Senator Frank Church.
This book is the basis of a forthcoming Channel 4 (UK) documentary about attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro.
Published as part of the Secret War series.
