Elian Wrap Up

This past weekend I posted a two-part piece on Elian to mark the fifth anniversary of his removal from his relatives' home in Miami. I'll wrap up the Elian posts with this entry from Juan Paxety of Paxety Pages about a speech now 11-year-old Elian gave in Cuba to mark the anniversary.

The Caribbean Net News quotes Elian as saying:

"That (the day of the raid) was the happiest day of my life," said Elian, reading from a prepared text. He urged the United States to allow the return to Cuba of another girl whose case he described as similar to his own."

If you believe that, I got some free oceanfront property to give you.

What would castro and Elian have to say about this?
