Did you see last night’s shameless “60 Minutes” interview of Elian Gonzalez, five years later? Clearly, the boy has been brainwashed to the nth degree. You’d have to be brainwashed to call Fidel Castro your “friend” and “father.”
I blame CBS, “60 Minutes,” and left-wing reporter Bob Simon for helping perpetrate this farce of an interview/”report.” Simon let Elian go on and on about how he missed his father when he was in Miami. Reality Check: Elian’s parents were divorced, his mother was his sole caretaker, and he barely ever saw or even knew his father. Where was Bob Simon on this point?
Not surprisingly, my favorite federal agent, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) Special Agent in Charge Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz,” has a connection to Elian Gonzalez and the outrageous kidnapping and transfer of this poor kid back to Communist Cuba.
As we’ve noted, Abu Moskowitz has a predilection for targeting Latinos above all others (even though he oversees the heart of Islamic America in a post-9/11 world). And apparently this started with the Elian seizure by federal agents in 2000. At the time, Abu Moskowitz–a Clintonista and liberal–was Legislative Director of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association. He was quoted in the Washington Post advocating the jack-booted kidnapping of Elian by Janet Reno-commandeered INS agents.
I’m sure Abu Moskowitz might feel differently if it were his child kidnapped into a life of hopeless Communism. But, perhaps not since he has reportedly welcomed one of the pro-tyrannists of our time–an unabashed Islamist and “former” terrorist–into his Bloomfield Hills home.
