The most famous of the assassinations of the 1960s

The assassinations of the 1960s lead to the CIA being put under increased scrutiny in the 1970s.

Outside the US

Various figures of political import were assassinated in newly decolonised nation states by the US Deep state under the rubric of "anti-communism". Although some of these assassinations were denied at the time, this established that US political and economic interests must be heeded by the leaders of newly "independent" countries. The CIA set up Operation 40, a hit squad that was originally aimed to assassinate Fidel Castro.
