Lethal Action: Deadly Plots, Silenced Voices, and Epic Fails

Targeted killing. Wet jobs. Assassinations. Eliminations. Spy thrillers feature deadly plots in which governments eliminate spies, operatives, dissidents or enemies of the state.

But when a questionable death occurs in real life, it can be hard to discover what really happened. In this Smithsonian Seminar Series, intelligence experts and historians (James Rosen, Dr. Vincent Houghton, Keith Melton, Walter Krivitsky) will explore the true stories of four real cases of successful, failed, or possible cases of targeted killing.
