Did the CIA Try to Kill Mark Lane?

An intriguing news conference:

Beverly Hills Citizen News, July 31, 1968

Money Quote:

In a press conference, Lane said he has received "a telephone call from a former CIA agent who told me they (the agency) had a plan to kill me. He told me it was postponed because someone thought 'Lane's death would make too big a splash now,' and that the plan would go into effect later.'"
