Years before Edward Snowden was even born, the CIA, NSA, FBI, and IRS were all under scrutiny for VBB (very bad behavior).
In 1975, Senator Frank Church (an Idaho democrat) led a committee to investigate abuses including “spying on civilians (for some reason they were particularly interested in a charismatic minister named Martin Luther King, Jr.), assassination attempts against foreign leaders, and covert attempt to subvert foreign governments.” (Wikipedia)
According to this Infowars post, "Cancer, car accidents, skiing accidents, suicide, boating accidents, heart attacks, and just plain being shot were common assassination methods."
And if those methods failed, they could bring out their handy-dandy heart attack gun. Yes, you read that right: heart-attack gun. A poison would be frozen into the shape of a small dart, which could be fired into a person with a pistol. (Global Research)
Here’s a minute-long clip of the actual Church Committee hearing with the “heart-attack gun”. Church is the fellow on the left.

Have you ever heard of the Church Committee? Fan of James Bond films? My dad took me to see several the 007 movies featuring Roger Moore and that creepy villain with the metal teeth when I was growing up.
