638 Ways To Kill Castro

638 Ways To Kill Castro

ABC  |  November 8, 2010

More people have tried to murder the world’s most famous socialist than any man alive. Governments and gunmen have been trying to get Cuban’s revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro, for 50 long years. The men who tried to kill Castro have spent decades in the shadows but now they have come forward to reveal their secrets. Who are these men? Heroes or villains? And what made them hate Castro enough to want him dead? This is not a film about Castro, nor is it simply a lesson from Cold War history; it is a thought-provoking and serious essay about a political obsession that says as much about America’s foreign policy today as it does about the past.
