Chuck Hagel: “Expert” on both Cuba and on Family Values

"Elian is now where he belongs." (Chuck Hagel after the armed raid on Lazaro Gonzalez' home.)

To me, this case has always been fundamentally about a father-son relationship. Elián lost his mother in a tragic way. By all accounts, Elián and his father have had a loving relationship. The alarming photographs from Saturday's operation by the Justice Department obscured the point of the raid -- to reunite Elián with his father when those housing him had repeatedly refused to hand him over.

The boy is where he belongs..

From an article Senator Hagel penned for the New York Times April 28 2000.

For the sake of America's furture defense, let's hope Hagel isn't really this stupid. Let's hope he was playing politics ( i.e. lying.)

Unreal
