White House Will Do Nothing to Secure Sgt. Tahmooressi’s Release


The White House responded to the We the People Petition in the case of Sgt. Tahmooressi last evening as the holiday weekend began, at least that is when they emailed me. They will do nothing to get him freed. The same White House that traded five Taliban terrorists for a deserter, will do nothing for an honorable Marine who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan for his country.

They said they traded for Bergdahl because they never leave a man behind, but they are leaving Tahmooressi behind.

Sgt. Tahmooressi accidentally ended up in Mexico at the border, volunteered that he had guns in the car, was immediately arrested, and was tortured for a month. He remains imprisoned. The Sergeant has PTSD.

The important paragraph in the brief response to the petition is this one:

“We respect the rule of law and expect the judicial process of sovereign nations to protect other U.S. citizens who might find themselves in similar circumstances in the future. We will continue to monitor the case and work with the Mexican authorities as this case proceeds through the Mexican judicial system. We continue to urge the Mexican authorities to process this case expeditiously.”

They are monitoring and hope for a quick trial. All they would have to do for a speedy trial is to have Obama call Pena Nieto.

It has already been shown that they will drag the trial out.

The White House wrote that they want him treated fairly during the judicial process. There has been consular assistance and Kerry has spoken with the highest levels in the Mexican government, the letter reads.

It’s good to know that they respect the rule of law of sovereign nations to protect U.S. citizens. They don’t respect the rule of law in this country and they spy on, target and verbally abuse U.S. citizens.

This is a screenshot of the letter I received:

Sgt. Tahmooressi

I was allowed a response:

“The WH frees a deserter, trades him for five Taliban terrorists, and won’t do a thing to get a soldier released who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan. We cater to Mexico’s illegal immigrants, many of whom are drug dealers. What is wrong with you people?”

Where is the rest of the media on this? Except for FoxNews and especially Greta Van Susteren, where are they?

This young man is rotting in a Mexican prison while their drug dealers flow across our borders with Obama’s assistance.
