“Now is a time for steadiness, but HOO-BOY!…it is also a moment of hope, that a wave of redemptive energy will finally engulf the outrages of the previous administration and the grave threat it posed to the continuity of the United States as a nation of law,” writes Dan Rather.
Regarding Dan Rather’s personal adherence to our nation’s laws, please see below:
“Juan Miguel Gonzalez was surrounded by Castro security agents the entire time he was in the studio with Dan Rather and Greg Craig.” This is an eye-witness account from Pedro Porro, who served as Dan Rather’s translator during the famous “60 Minutes” interview, and who was interviewed by Augustin Blazquez.
“Juan Miguel was never completely alone,” revealed Pedro Porro. “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 Cuban security agents. When these agents left him alone for a few seconds, attorney Gregory Craig would hover over Juan Miguel.
“The questions Dan Rather was asking Elian’s father during that 60 Minutes interview were being handed to him by attorney (and Clinton-chum) Gregory Craig, who was also serving as Fidel Castro’s lawyer,” (in the guise of serving as Juan Miguel’s lawyer) continues Pedro Porro. “It was obvious that Craig and Rather where on very friendly terms. They were joshing and bantering back and forth, as Juan Miguel sat there petrified. Craig was stage managing the whole thing – almost like a movie director.”
Upon accepting the Elian case at Clinton’s behest, Gregory Craig had flown to Cuba for a meeting with Fidel Castro himself.
Interesting postscript: (Pedro Porro’s blockbuster revelations were featured in Human Events, The Drudge Report, and the Rush Limbaugh Show upon the release of the BLOCKBUSTER (!!!!!!) book, Fidel: Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant. AIM (Accuracy in Media) forwarded them to Gregory Craig, who denied them. AIM then set up an interview/debate with this writer and Craig. Alas, Craig was a no-show. He sent a message basically accusing me of lying—but was apparently afraid to confront me face-to-face to make the accusation, especially while I presented proof to the contrary from an eye-witness.
