The 40th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion was marked by an extraordinary conference in Havana involving former officials of the Kennedy Administration, the CIA, members of Brigade 2506, and Cuban government and military officials. The anniversary has also saw the release of numerous documents related to the ill-fated expedition. This offering consists of two volumes: the first contains the CIA Inspector General's (IG) report on the invasion, and the second consists of commentary on the IG report written by the Directorate of Plans (DP), now known as the Directorate of Operations (DO). As the site notes, "these two volumes are a rare side-by-side compilation of high-level government self-evaluation of its own performance in an historic and controversial event." In addition, the site includes over 750 related documents, many of them multi-page. All of these are offered as digitized page images of varying quality.
