"To return Elian to Cuba is a form of child abuse. If Castro is so concerned
about family why not release Elian's family and let them join Elian in the
United States.  The point is that the child's father is living under a
dictator, a totalitarian regime. Yes, the child should be reunited with his
dad ... in this country.  The pressure should have been put on Castro to
release the father, and, in effect, release all of Cuba.  And one wonders,
where is that great defender of children, Mrs. Hillary Clinton, on this
issue?  We can only be grateful that during the Cold War, the Clintons were
not in power. If they were, all those families and children escaping from
East Berlin would have been sent back."

        I agree with Pat Harrison!
