I saw a show several years back regarding the US Government and Fidel Castro.
The show claimed that at one point the CIA was able to have an LSD laced cigar delivered to Castro just prior to a televised press conference. The goal being to embarrass and discredit Castro in front of the Cuban people. Castro then smoked the cigar then proceeded to give the press conference.
The show then played the press conference which showed a delirious Castro, sweating profusely and trying vainly to get anything out other then…“uhhhh…ahem..nervous laugh…ahhh”.
The footage appeared to be quite legitimate not to mention hilarious however I have never seen nor heard of this footage again. Searches on the internet have turned up only rumours of this plot and nothing substantiating it.
Did this event occur? If it did, why is it so difficult to find any reference to it?
By the way, the show was on either A&E or History Channel and was an “Investigative Reports” type show….both channels being fairly reputable American channels.
