What on earth was this group thinking that they could just take kids out of Haiti with no documentation?

idiots..

"Members of the group, Baptists from the United States, said they had been falsely accused of child abduction and insisted they were only trying to rescue orphans in the wake of the earthquake that devastated the Haitian capital on Jan. 12."

Not their call, is it?
How would you feel if a muslim group went to a US disaster and kidnapped US kids?
How would you feel if your kids were taken by zealots because their god told them to do so?
I don't understand why people con't put themselves in the place of those who they commit crimes against.

Parents willingly gave children to US Baptists - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100204/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/cb_haiti_americans_detained - broken link)

"It is clear now that they were trying to cross the border without papers. It is clear now that some of the children have live parents. And it is clear now that they knew what they were doing was wrong," the Haitian prime minister said.

In Washington, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the attempt to bring undocumented children out of Haiti was "unfortunate whatever the motivation" and the Americans should have followed proper procedures. She said U.S. officials were in discussions with Haitian authorities about how to resolve the case.


The contradictions in this group's stories are amazing.
They seem to change daily.
