Richard Clarke authorized their departure, not Bush as you have stated, and only after the ADULTS were questioned and intel reviewed.

Do you suggest the children should have been beaten and interrogated perhaps?

Where to begin...

1. Are you suggesting that the adults should have been beaten? I'm certainly not. That sounds like one of those *exaggerations*.

2. Do you have a link that states that *all adults* were questioned?

3. Sure Clarke may have authorized it, but so did Bush. Clarke testified that he approved these flights, stating that "it was a conscious decision with complete review at the highest levels of the State Department and the FBI and the White House." Testimony of Richard Clarke, Former Counterterrorism Chief, National Security Council, before The Senate Judiciary Committee, September 3, 2003.. Are you saying that Bush had no knowledge of this despite being reviewed at the highest levels of the White House?
