The CIA's 22 Greatest Hits and Misses
If you can devise a harebrained scheme the CIA has not yet used to try to kill Cuban leader Fidel Castro, you might want to send a memo to their Langley headquarters. A 2006 BBC documentary and companion book covered 638 known attempts on Castro's life. The CIA wasn't behind every botched hit on El Comandante, but it is well documented that the agency has hired the Mafia, poisoned seashells, infected a diving suit with fungus and tried to poison his food with drugs to make him appear irrational and insane (some of Fidel's rambling speeches make one wonder if the latter plot hadn't actually worked). According to the book, written by former Castro bodyguard Fabian Escalante, the assassination plots continued until at least 2000, when a former CIA operative was arrested for trying to blow up Castro's podium during a speech in Panama.

The 5 Myths Of The Great Financial Meltdown
It's hard to believe, but it's been five years and a day since the U.S. financial system's problems surfaced, and we're still not even remotely close to being able to feel good about the economy. My admittedly arbitrary start date is June 12, 2007, the day the Wall Street Journal reported that two Bear Stearns hedge funds that owned mortgage securities were in big trouble. At the time, things didn't seem all that grim -- in fact, U.S. stocks hit an all-time high four months later. But in retrospect the travails of the funds, which collapsed within weeks, were a tip-off that a crisis was afoot. Problems kept erupting, efforts to restore calm failed, and we trembled on the brink of a financial abyss in 2008-09. Things have gotten better since then, but still aren't close to being right.
