10 Years On, Elián González 'Doing Great'

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Florida fishermen found Elián González floating in the Atlantic Ocean ten years ago today. After months of legal wrangling, González was sent back to Cuba and his waiting father; who can forget the picture of an armed federal official confronting a screaming Elian? The incident once again brought the frayed relations between the United States and Cuba to the forefront. How have those relations changed in the ten years since? Ann Louise Bardach brings us an update on González; she is the author of “Without Fidel: A Death Foretold in Miami, Havana, and Washington,” and previously of “Cuba Confidential.”
