Exploding cigars. Poisoned tea. Hotels that you can never leave. This month, the International Spy Museum is hosting “Lethal Action: Deadly Plots, Silenced Voices, and Epic Fails,” a series of talks on “targeted killings” (the euphemism for assassination). Hear how Trotsky fell to an ice-climbing ax, and how the CIA tried some 600 times to take out Castro—or at least that’s what the Cuban government claimed.
