When the children turn...

Presidential Scholars, also known as 'high school students' , signed a handwritten petition asking President Bush to stop torturing people captured (or abducted, or extraordinarily rendered) during the war on terror.

The handwritten letter said the students "believe we have a responsibility to voice our convictions."

"We do not want America to represent torture. We urge you to do all in your power to stop violations of the human rights of detainees, to cease illegal renditions, and to apply the Geneva Convention to all detainees, including those designated enemy combatants," the letter said.

Kids never heard of a 'computer'? What, was it written on a cocktail napkin?

Bush was nice, explained that the US doesn't do that sort of thing (Cheney, who was standing close by, snickered) and only had them rendered to Syria AFTER they left the White House.
