Sarah Palin: Seems Like Captured Marine Only Person Obama Doesn't Want Crossing Border
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is calling on the Obama administration to bring Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi back home.
"Does it seem like a decorated Marine is the only one Obama doesn't want crossing our border?" Palin asked on Wednesday.
As Breitbart News has noted, "on March 31, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally crossed the Mexican border with guns in his truck. He was promptly arrested, chained, and beaten by Mexican authorities."
"This terrible and unnecessary situation will likely be resolved via the court system and there is every indication that Sgt. Tahmooressi has a strong case to win, but it’s a crapshoot," she continued. "And it’s crappy that more hasn’t been done to help free this detained U.S. Marine who’s suffered months in a Mexican jail for crossing the boarder into their country with registered arms. We must implore our commander-in-chief to help America’s Marine under his command, and help his family with at least having their questions answered."
Palin said that "perhaps if Sgt. Tahmooressi had deserted his post, his mother would get the red carpet treatment at the White House instead of being ignored."
"Please don’t prove this is par for the course for your administration, Mr. President," she continued. "Let’s bring our honorable Marine home."
Palin said that she has been "in contact with associates of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi" and praised Fox’s Greta Van Susteren for "covering this story diligently" and traveling the "route our Marine traveled when straying across a highway into Mexico, noting it seems quite easy to end up in Mexico without planning on it, because signage is so poor along the roads." Palin also said that though his mother has had difficulty finding good legal representation for her son, she has finally "acquired a good attorney to present his case and get him released as soon as possible."
She also said that "an organization helping Sgt. Tahmooressi will have information for all of us soon, so stay tuned for more info – I'll get it to you – and please do what you can to support them in bringing an honorable American son home."
Palin added on Thursday that veteran Chad Robichaux, PhD, MBA, is one of the great Americans helping to bring Tahmooressi back:
He works with “Serving California,” and as a Board Certified Pastoral Counselor he founded “Mighty Oaks,” an associate ministry of Dave Roever’s famous ministry for vets.
Both organizations focus on PTSD and reintegration issues. These are free private sector effective programs – they do absolutely phenomenal work. In addition to his academic bonafides, Chad is one tough decorated former Marine... and to top it all off he’s a professional Mixed Martial Arts Fighter! Impressively, even the MMA/Fight Club concept assists our guys, as you'll see in this video!
Please watch it; short and profound, it features America’s finest and shows how to help: http://youtu.be/ue9iCvrMmAE
