Politics or family? Robert Sheridan bobsheridan What gets me is the brainwashing the kid is getting from the Miami Cubans. He gets every kind of bribe and inducement, from bikes and other toys to trips to DisneyWorld, all this attention, etc., etc.

This is classic treatment of a kid you want to sing the right tune. Happens all the time in cases involving kids, from custody battles to worse.

The kid is the hostage who submits to those who dominate him, feed him, and promise him continued unpunished existence. Think Patti Hearst, the 22 Korean War American POWS, the Stockholm Syndrome bank clerks, and anything else you want.
