Cuba has successfully indoctrinated Elian Gonzalez to hate America. Since becoming a valuable propaganda tool, he’s led a very comfortable life quite unlike those of his countrymen:
Fidel Castro attended his 7th birthday party. His father went from being a waiter to being a member of the country’s national assembly. Now he studies engineering at a military school in Cuba and appears to be emerging as a new spokesman for the Cuban government.
“Appears to be emerging?” Of course he is; that was obviously the plan all along. Sheesh.
Even with what he’s become, I still feel for the poor fellow. He has a rude awakening in store for him when he outlives his usefulness.
