It's a common human trait, from which I also suffer at
times, when 
we remember things as we wish they were rather than as they
did
in fact occur. The Cubans have learned a lot from what
happen at
the time of Che's mission to Bolivia. In fact, Fidel advised
Che not
to go as early as he did. This is documented in Piniero's
book that
was published by Ocean Press.

Cuban intervention in Latin America includes more than a few
errors
of precisely the kind Louis Proyect says didn't happen. Pull
out your
copy of DYNAMICS OF THE CUBAN REVOLUTION by Joseph Hansen
to review some of the errors which were correctly pointed
out at the
time by Hansen, a Trotskyist, but rather rarely a sectarian:
