    It's just 'left-field' enough to be genuine, I suppose. I mean, there were even dafter suggestions made during the war by both sides, so why not?

    I have no doubt! This was basically the agency that proposed to kill Fidel Castro with exploding cigars!

    I thought the CIA tried to use poisoned cigars.

    You mean like putting female hormones in Hitler's food so that his breasts would swell. Or like the plan to make Hitler's mustache hair fall out.

    There were several "left field" ideas floated by the OSS.

    You are both correct.

    “Some of them were a part of the covert CIA program dubbed Operation Mongoose aimed at toppling the Cuban government. The assassination attempts reportedly included cigars poisoned with botulinum toxin, a tubercle bacilli-infected scuba-diving suit along with a booby-trapped conch placed on the sea bottom,[16] an exploding cigar (Castro loved cigars and scuba diving, but he quit smoking in 1985),[16][17] a ballpoint pen containing a hypodermic syringe preloaded with the lethal concoction Blackleaf 40,[16] and plain, mafia-style execution endeavors, among others.[18] There were plans to blow up Castro during his visit to Ernest Hemingway's museum in Cuba.” - wiki
