Biggest Screw-ups in History

Captain Edward Smith, of Titanic infamy, screwed up more ways than you can count.  He ignored warnings of icebergs.  The lookouts in the crow's nest had no binoculars.  Didn't have enough lifeboats. But perhaps his biggest screwups occured after the collison.  Explain. And then cite another incredible screwup and how you, a layman, would have done things much more efficiently, given the knowledge then available.
