As Obama focuses on the Michael Brown case, we’ve got a Marine in Mexico who has been held prisoner for quite a while. Well, there is someone who isn’t going to let this Marine rot in prison. Check out what former SEAL Team Six Commander Ryan Zinke has to say about the issue.
For months, an American Marine has lingered in a Mexican jail for having accidentally brought firearms into Mexico. On March 31st, 2014, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi missed his exit near San Diego and accidentally drove into Mexico with no way to turn around. The Marine carried three loaded firearms in his truck and was arrested and has remained in Mexico’s infamously horrid prison system ever since.While the Obama Administration has concerned themselves with Michael Brown’s death and as the vacationer-in-chief remains MIA on Martha’s Vineyard, taking breaks to fundraise for Democrats on occasion, the Obama Administration has done nothing to secure the release of the American veteran who lingers in a jail cell.One man, however, has an idea. Ryan Zinke, the former SEAL Team Six Task Force Commander and current Congressional candidate in Montana, sees the current situation regarding Sgt. Tahmooressi unacceptable. His solution? Send the Marines into Mexico and take back our soldier.
“If I was the first executive of the United States, I would have called the first Marine division and told them to go get their marine back, and I would give them the equipment to do it,” Zinke revealed in a recent interview with Breitbart News.“I cannot fathom why the media is not pounding the issue,” Zinke explained. “Here is a young marine who’s being held in a Mexican prison and where is this administration? Where is our country? We need to demand that this marine comes back home.”
