Castro). Even Republican icon Dwight Eisenhower was implicated:
The chain of events revealed by the documents and testimony is
strong enough to permit a reasonable inference that the plot to
assassinate Lumumba was authorized by President Eisenhower.

Nixon was shown to be obsessed with getting rid of the Allende
regime in Chile. And since he had already been disgraced with
Watergate, his defenders, like Bill Safire of the New York Times,
felt that this was piling on. As we shall see, Safire struck back
through Judith Exner.

But the plots against Castro took center stage. They seemed full
of sensational, fantastic revelations that seemed right out of a
James Bond movie: poison pills, exploding sea shells,

details of a Drew Pearson-Jack Anderson 1967 leak about the
Castro plots, it labeled the Pearson-Anderson insinuation about
Robert Kennedy's "approval" of the plots as "Not true." It later
goes on to say that the role played by Robert Kennedy in
Pearson's story is "a garbled account." What had happened was
that through the FBI's discovery of a wiretapping favor done for
Maheu's contact in the plots (Chicago mobster Sam Giancana)
Hoover had learned of the CIA-Mob link and forwarded his
knowledge to Ro
