E32: Operation Mongoose

September 3, 2018

Matt and Kayla wrap up the Summer of Truth series with one final trip to Cold War-era Cuba, discussing Operation Mongoose - the CIA plot to assassinate Fidel Castro and other high ranking Cuban officials through a series of extremely ridiculous means. Along the way, we talk about the lead up to the creation of the Cuban Project, Robert Kennedy's involvement in overseeing Operation Mongoose, the CIA's many (many) failed attempts to kill Castro, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and much more.
