No surprise here. Twenty-three years ago every Cuban on earth knew what would happen to Elián González if he were to be placed in Fidel Castro’s hands. We knew that returning him to Cuba was the equivalent of selling a child to a pedophile ring. .
Elián is now what all Cubans knew he would become after he was ripped away from his family in Miami by gun-toting agents of Bill Clinton’s administration. Read it and weep.
