The story and spin behind ex-Marine Tahmooressi, jailed in Mexico!!
Sgt. Tahmooressi, living in a truck having just arrived San Diego to seek VA assistance with PTSD supported by a Purple Heart veteran Marine; a 2 tour OEF meritoriously promoted Sergeant gets lost at the border and with one wrong turns ends up in the Mexico customs lane with no way to turn back. His truck piled high with possessions as he searched housing including his U.S. legally purchased firearms/ ammunition. Not intending to drive into Mexico he explains he is lost. Arrested since 4/1/2014, since incarceration his life has been threatened; sustained a neck wound requiring hospitalization and chained in a 4-point restraint, 26 plus days.
Isn’t it ironic that this administration can deal with the release of a man that deserted his post and trade 5 terrorist for his release dealing the Taliban to secure the release, but we will not do the same for a Marine imprisoned in Mexico, for making a wrong turn and entered Mexico. Illogical nonsense!!!
So, let’s see if I understand this, our supposed leader who is willing to release 5 high ranking terrorists in exchange for an alleged deserter not willing to so much as speak out in support of an honorable Marine who actually earned his rank?
While I applaud politicians such as Tim Donnelly who actually put in an admirable effort to work for the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi by keeping attention on the issue as best he can, he simply can't do what the so-called leader of our nation can & demand the Sergeant's return.
Why is this administration remaining silent on Sgt. Tahmooressi's captivity when they are willing to undermine our national security in order to bring home a soldier of far less loyalty by any standard? Pure Nincompoopery!
