The Central Intelligence Agency releases the "family jewels," secret documents detailing illegal activities—including a plot to hire members of the Mafia to assassinate Fidel Castro—and domestic spying.

The CIA worked with three American mobsters in a botched "gangster-type" attempt to assassinate Cuban leader Fidel Castro in the early 1960s, according to documents released by the CIA on Tuesday.
