  • The Inspector General's Survey of the Cuban Operation

  • After spending 36 years locked in a safe in the CIA director's office, this highly critical report of the CIA's handling of the Bay of Pigs Invasion was made public on February 22, 1998, after a two year Freedom of Information Act effort by The National Security Archive at George Washington University. (discussed in the September 20, 1996 Scout Report. The top secret report, officially known as _The Inspector General's Survey of the Cuban Operation_, strongly criticizes the CIA for misinforming Kennedy administration officials, poor planning and intelligence, treating rebel leaders as "puppets," and conducting an overt military operation beyond "Agency responsibility as well as Agency capability." Note that the report is available as a series of large .zip files of scanned images. They may be available as HTML files in the future.
    On the Banning of Land Mines
    It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
    -- Henry David Thoreau, "Where I Live"
