Like Father, Like Son (interview with Elian in Ecuador)


"You couldn't see the gun to Frankie Pentangeli's head either. But in front of the media he sang Michael's tune perfectly. Comprende?"

From Pedro Porro who served as Elian Gonzalez father's translator during his 60 Minutes interview by Dan Rather in April 2000:

"Juan Miguel Gonzalez was never completely alone. He never smiled. His eyes kept shifting back and forth. It was obvious to me that he was under heavy coercion. He was always surrounded by security agents from the Cuba Interest Section (i.e. Cuban embassy) in Washington D.C. When these agents left him alone for a few seconds, attorney Gregory Craig would hover over Juan Miguel."

From Andres Lopez the CNN espanol correspondent who interviewed Elian Gonzalez in Ecuador this week:

"From the beginning of the interview (with Elian Gonzalez on his visit to Ecuador,) every question and respective answer was carefully monitored by a "chaperone" who would not leave Elian's side. She would nod her head affirmatively as the young man answered. And that's how the interview "flowed."
