Clinton Lawyer Who Orchestrated Elian Gonzalez Fiasco Now w/ Obama

By Debbie Schlussel
Much has been made about how Greg Craig, the former Clinton loyalist, has joined forces with Barack Hussein Obama’s campaign for President, forsaking Hillary Clinton’s. And in the press coverage, much has been made of Craig’s status as a Clinton impeachment attorney.
But that’s not the whole story. The whole story is that Craig, who once worked on the staff of Ted Kennedy, served as the lawyer who orchestrated the whole return of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba for a life under Castro’s Communist tyranny. He was chosen by assorted lefties and the Cuban government to “represent” the interests of Elian Gonzalez’s father, Juan Miguel Gonzalez, who was then under the thumb of Cuban minders in America. He kept father Gonzalez from defecting, too. And Craig’s legal fees, at the time, were paid by the National Council of Churches. And don’t forget, Craig also helped orchestrate the INS raid, kidnapping Elian from the home of his Miami relatives. That started the whole ball rolling.

Greg Craig:

Former Clintonista, Current Obama’ite, Helped Deport Elian to Castro Cuba

Craig has a very “interesting” background, which should tell us a lot about both Hillary, his former friend, and Obama, his current one. From my April 2000 column on Greg Craig:

Craig was Bill Clinton’s personal attorney in the Lewinsky/Impeachment matter. The same Bill Clinton who wants to open up trade to Cuba. And this little fly, called Elian, is in the ointment. Craig was also a director of policy planning to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, one of the top positions setting foreign policy at the State Department. The foreign policy at the same State Department that’s crawling with Castrophile bureaucrats who’d love to open trade with Cuba while its people suffer in tyranny. Craig also serves on the board of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The same Carnegie Endowment that wants to end the embargo with Cuba, so that its wealthy, elitist members, like Craig, might freely smoke a Cuban cigar. . . .
Isn’t Craig’s bill being picked up by the government of Castro . . . oops, I mean the National Council of Churches(NCC)? Yup, that’s the problem. Nobody’s coming clean about who’s paying Craig’s bill. Probably because, as it’s been rumored, Castro’s been giving the money to the NCC and using the organization as his willing shill. Either way, these two despicable entities–Castro and the NCC–have an agenda. An agenda that’s anti-freedom, pro-tyranny, and 180 degrees from what’s in the best interest of Juan Miguel. And it’s clear that Craig is taking his direction from them, not his client. . . .
While working for Ted Kennedy, he pushed the world to divest from and impose sanctions on South Africa. But Cuba, what a great country to trade with! In coordinating Clinton’s non-policy on Tibet, Craig “smoothed over” Tibetan protests over oppression by the Chinese, so his Boss-in-Chief could hold two garish summits with the Chinese oppressors. This is the Craig-Clinton version of justice.
Craig makes much of his representation of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. But lifting an old guy from tyranny does not allow you to dump a young kid back into it. Solzhenitsyn would never support sending Elian back. And Castro would never support guys like Craig on Cuban soil. Castro threw lawyers who represented pro-democracy Cubans (whose only crime was speech) into the same torturous Cuban prisons with their clients. And Craig represented John Hinckley, Jr., Ronald Reagan’s would-be assassin. Can you imagine what Castro would do to a man who represented his attempted murderer?
Shakespeare said: First, we kill all the lawyers.

They say you can tell a lot about people from the company they keep. And we can tell a lot about Hillary and, now, Barack Obama, from their latest, prominent friend.

He kept Elian’s father from defecting?????? Isn’t that evidence of a conflict of interest, especially since his fees were paid by a third party with an agenda??????
What an evil man.

Isn’t BARAK an Isreali name???
And since you’re digging DEEP into the past, let’s go a little closer—i SEEM to remember a certain GOP congresswoman “joking” about assassinating Hillary Clinton—something that miraculously disappeared from the internet!!!

I’d like to see a campain poster with the Elian raid photo captioned “It’s 5:00am. Are your children safe from the Hildebeast?”

The only reason Cubans are suffering is because of the American economic boycott, if you were REALLY interested in improving the lot of the Cuban people you would end the embargo immediately.
It’s a credit to the Cuban government’s financial policies that they have survived as well as they have for so long. If any other country in the region had been subjected to an American boycott for so long they would have been bankrupted long ago.

The National Council of Churches(NCC) was the Front of Dwayne Andreas the CEO of Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). ADM nonprofit group, one of their sitting Board Members also sits on the Council of Churches Board. They used this means to channel the money through NCC. The real reason is that ADM and its CEO, Dwayne Andreas, made a deal with castro, for castro to stop producing sugar, a direct competitor of High Fructose Corn syrup, ADM signature product, in return Castro gets away with anything he wants, thats why nothing happens, these individuals have overwhelming influence in the DOJ, which they say they own. Thats why they sent elian back. Even the nuns were part of the scheme, since these are Part of Barry University, which has its Business school with Dwayne Andreas name on it. Now you see the connection.
