Assassins, Drugs and "mistakes"

First chapter from the book:
A TERRIBLE MISTAKE: The Murder of Frank Olson
by H.P.Albarelli

"The techniques employed will vary according to whether the subject is unaware of his danger, aware but unguarded, or guarded. The most efficient accident, in simple assassination, is a fall of 75 feet or more onto a hard surface. Elevator shafts, stairwells, unscreened windows and bridges will serve. "
-CIA Assassination Manual, 1952

We’ll name them as they jump out of windows.
-U.S. Rep. Karl E. Mundt, 1948
