Sue in Barberton: Tell us what you know about Elian's life in Cardenes, Cuba. Tell us about his grandparents, both sets. Tell us about his father who has been working at a restaurant in Varadero.

Tell us about the "brainwashing" techniques used by the Cuban gov't! Tell us about the educational system in Cuba and why, at this point is Elian wearing the uniform. You seem to have all the answers. We are eager to benefit from your vast knowledge of Cuba and Elian.

I know this family & I know the facts. The child arrived in an inner tube while fleeing the Cuban dictatorship with his mother who drowned at sea but managed to save her son. Elian told us that she secured him to the tube while holding on but then drowned. The relatives in Miami knew that they were coming but not exactly when. As did his father, who had agreed that the Miami relatives should have him when the mother drowned.
Then fidel claimed the child when there was a furor over his arrival & forced his father to come to the US & get him.
Clinton caved in & handed him over. He did not have the family jewels to confront castro. Hadf it being George Bush, Elian would still be in the US & would be an ordinary Cuban American kid paying allegiance to the flag of the USA, instead of being a brainwashed communist!

But of course the commienazi TCO/OM/MARIE(Ks) will refute that since they owe their allegiance to castro!

The kid was given opportunity that other kids in Cuba don't receive of course he was brainwashed.

Oh, get over it. He looks fine to me in the photo. Why are you all so worried about this kid being brainwashed. Does it really affect your daily activities?

"The Compassionate One"?(TCO?) Could also be "The Clueless One"

Learn to read before you comment on an article. Read it again. See the part that says, "He was elected to parliament,a position he still holds..."?

He's not working in a restaurant. He sold out and was rewarded by the communist regime w/ a gov't. position (just like Democrats here).

And yes, if you want to know about Cuba, ask me. I was born in Pinar Del Rio. Know your subject before you spew mindless dribble.

Yes alps Fidel Castro looks good in pictures and the f## old baster is almost dead..........Elian has been brainwashed you have to hear him talking at Castro's assemblies. But he says he remembers everyone in Miami and Disney....He also remembers Mcdonalds and the supermarkets, he also remember the cuban sandwiches with plenty of meat and Seaworld, etc. Someday he will also remember why his mother died for. At that time he will do the same as his MOM...for the second time

I'm sure he has been on your minds everyday these past 10 years. You are so quick to say he has been brainwashed but have you even been thinking about him all these years. Probably not but now that you see a picture of him in his homeland living what appears to be well taken care of you are going to cry "He's brainwashed" Are the other children brainwashed that wear the sam thing? Cry about something else that is more important like the children here that aren't being taken care of.

I'm sure I would. I just love how people imply that because he doesn't want to be in America he must be brainwashed. Who really cares anyway?
