Ones choice of associates show who you are. Obama´s choices provide insight into his real intent towards the castro dictatorship. No amount of flip-flopping will hide the che loving campaign volunteers, or his long time association with radicals and castro apologists.
Two of his advisor’s were involved in returning Elián to Cuba; foreign policy advisor Greg Craig, who represented Elián’s
father castro in the custoday battle, and VP search committee member Eric Holder, who was deputy attorney general when 6-year old Elián was seized at gunpoint by federal agents.
Here’s related CNN footage from You Tube. Listen to Obama’s communications director, Robert Gibbs talk around the issue:
The news of Elián joining the Young Communist Union is a predicable reminder of that heartbreaking event. Obama has yet to voice his opinion on that event, but I believe his selection of these two unsavory men as advisors answers that question. Will Obama make yet another statement where he feigns ignorance of his associates actions?
