638 Ways To Kill Castro

Friday, September 28, 2007
Some claim that there are 50 ways to leave your lover, but how many ways are there to kill off a political enemy? According to the former head of Cuban Intelligence, Fabian Escalante, there are no less than 638. 638 Ways To Kill Castro is a political documentary exploring the history of the relationship between the U.S. government and Cuba, told via the countless attempts to kill Fidel Castro. From exploding cigars to femme fatales; a radio station rigged with noxious gas to a poison syringe posing as an innocuous ballpoint pen, those who tried to kill Castro reveal every conceivable method of assassination.

This will be airing on CBC Newsworld's The Passionate Eye on Sunday September 30th (10pm ET/PT). Check your local listings. I'll have a review for y'all once it's aired.

Awesome! I'll try to catch it. I have company coming, though, so my TV time might be seriously interrupted.

Believe it or not, I've seen this. And damn, there are a LOT of ways to kill Castro, or at least humiliate him (like getting his beard to fall out).
Richard was devastated that Carter's administration had several plans to kill Castro, but was happy that it had fewer ideas than all other administrations.
