    "After the financial system collapsed they cried ignorance that even a blind man could see coming."

    It's a slightly odd sentence: I'd have expected "cried ignorance of" rather than "cried ignorance that". And I think a few words are missing.

    But what it means is they claimed they were ignorant of [knew nothing about] things that even a blind man could see coming.
