During the cold war the CIA had a plan to get rid of Castro by spreading rumours that he was the Antichrist, then fake the second coming off of the coast of Cuba.
The plan was that a US submarine would make it’s way towards Havana and fire star shells into the air. They then would use a U.S. military plane (hidden in the clouds) with a loudspeaker, and somebody would pretend to be Jesus while urging the population to denounce communism and overthrow the regime.
Other such plans included lacing Castro’s radio studio with LSD to cause his disorientation during the broadcast, and using thallium to cause his beard to fall out, both to destroy his public image. [goddamitletmesleep]
