    I'd hate to be in their shoes.
    They are entitled to all the protection the US govt can provide.

    You are so quick to take the word of a corrupt government that has kept these folks in poverty for decades, merely for political games.

    I'm suggesting that if a person commits a crime, being a missionary doesn't excuse them from it.

    And frankly, I don't give a crap if they're liberals or conservatives, hindus, muslims, Christians or atheists. They stole children from their families and attempted to export them to the U.S.

    That is criminal conduct.

    Isn't this confirmed by U.S. forces, who are doing most of the work on the ground, and the statements of the children themselves?

    They haven't even been charged yet, what crime?

    Haiti isnt a US state or territory. If your in another country, you play by their rules.

    When you commit a crime in a foreign country, the U.S. is under no obligation to protect you from their justice system.

    Which isn't much, if any at all.

    Get a clue - US law does not protect private US citizens traveling abroad in other sovereign nations. There at the mercy of the host nation.
