    Terrorism is a set of actions that meet a given critera.

    That criteria usually involves deliberately attacking non-combatants in order to use fear as a means to a political end.

    Unless someones' action meet that criteria, it doesnt matter who -calls- them a terrorist -- they are not.

    The U.S. definition of Terrorism is:

    (2) the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents;

    That qualifies America. Go figure.

    The Bay of Pigs Invasion (known as La Batalla de Girón in Cuba), was an unsuccessful attempt by a U.S.-trained force of American immigrants exiled from Cuba to invade southwest Cuba with support from U.S. government armed forces and overthrow the Cuban government of Fidel Castro.
    The invasion—planned and funded by the United States government. John F. Kennedy assumed the presidency in the United States. The Cuban armed forces, trained and equipped by Eastern Bloc nations, defeated the invading force in a matter of days and the event accelerated a rapid deterioration in Cuban-American relations. This was exacerbated the following year by the Cuban Missile Crisis.

    Come on man, stop playing the fool. They funded and trained a group of subnationals for a covert invasion into Cuba...

    Nevertheless, days before the invasion, multiple acts of sabotage were carried out, such as the bombing of the El Encanto department store in Havana, desultory explosions, and arson. The Cuban government also had been warned by senior KGB agents Osvaldo Sánchez Cabrera and "Aragon", who died violently before and after the invasion, respectively.[13] The general Cuban population was not well informed, except for CIA funded Radio Swan.[14] As of May 1960, almost all means of public communication were in the government’s hands.[15][16]

    Your own source defeats you.

    Sabotage is not in any way necessarily terrorism.
