Coin Containing Poison Carried By American Spies In 1960's To Allow Them To Commit Suicide If Captured

Indignation continues to grow around the world over reports of the U.S. government eavesdropping on telephone calls by leaders in nearly three dozen countries.

It’s put a new focus on the subject of spying.

This week, a huge new exhibition on the history of spying happens to be opening in Ventura County.  It includes everything from an spy submarine, to one of the actual scripts from “Argo”, the phony movie project in the 1970’s the CIA used as cover to smuggle out some Americans trapped in Iran.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story, from Simi Valley.
