Cuba error

The CIA, in a report kept secret for 36 years, blamed its own arrogance, ignorance and incompetence for the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961, the New York Times said. The inquiry was at last released last week under the US Freedom of Information Act to the National Security Archive, a non-profit group that collects and publishes declassified government reports.
