Anti-Castro propaganda pressures US officials to hold six-year-old Elian Gonzalez hostage

Custodial relatives attempt to brainwash Elian

The US Govenment's decision postponing the legal review of six-year-old Elian Gonzalez' right to rejoin his father in Cuba until Jan. 21, 2000, is disgraceful. The Oregon Congressional Delegation has failed to protest this resurrection of Cold War propaganda; meanwhile, Miami anti-Castro fanatics use Disneyland and junk food to brain-wash the young child. The Oregonian has also failed to report promptly on discussions and official actions in this matter. The Gonzalez incident is an ugly example of the US in its all-too-frequent role as an international scofflaw.
