The plight of Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi has been completely ignored by Obama and his underlings. Heâ€™s just one of the military personnel that are there for exploitation or photo-ops on an as-needed basis and they simply donâ€™t need him right now.
Fortunately for the Sergeant, Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter of California has been working hard, along with others on their side of the aisle, to free Tahmooressi and return him to his family in America.
Heâ€™s been a prisoner of Mexico for over four months since making a wrong turn and finding himself trapped on a one way road to Hell.
Rep Hunter contends that Tahmooressi is still a captive due in large part to the incompetence of his two previous attorneys. In aÂ statementÂ to Brietbart News, Hunter said, â€œPart of the problem initially was that Andrew’s first two lawyers weren’t up to the task, and their mistakes resulted in months of unnecessary delays. So his new legal team, led by Fernando Benitez, is rock-solid, and Fernando has exposed numerous humanitarian violations that will produce a formal request for dismissal in the coming days.â€
Hunter is hoping for assistance from Mexicoâ€™s Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam. He said, â€œThe AG has shown himself to be reasonable, and this case can still be handled properly if he exercises good judgment by looking at the facts of the case that have been laid out. I’m confident he’ll do that, especially now that Mexico’s justice system has been given time to work.â€
He continued, saying, â€œI don’t think the AG needs to apologize for the serious mistakes of Andrew’s two previous attorneys, especially the fact that dismissal was never requested, but what the AG can do is show that the buck stops with him now that major humanitarian violations have been revealed.â€
He closed his statement saying, â€œIt’s now appropriate for the AG to fully support a motion for dismissal, and anyone with an interest or stake in this case should do exactly that.”
Hunter is himself a former Marine with previous deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq. Heâ€™s committed to not abandon fellow citizen to rot in a foreign prison. Itâ€™s how Marines conduct themselves
Working for Tahmooressiâ€™s release; itâ€™s the honorable thing to do.
