What will it take for Barack Obama to lift a finger in order to get U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi released from the Mexico prison he is currently being held in?
After all the President offers the same tired rhetoric day in and day out concerning his 'deal' that got Bowe Bergdahl released saying that he makes no apologies because no US soldier will ever be left behind. (Note regarding the 'deal': 'One of the five senior Taliban leaders transferred to Qatar in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl played a key role in al Qaeda’s plans leading up to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks')
Of course in typical Obama fashion he seems to believe that by saying these words people will actually believe them and ignore his actions in favor of his tired, useless and empty rhetoric.
Benghazi comes to mind as a glaring example of this President allowing Americans to die without him even having the decency to stay awake during the hours-long attack.
In that case one of the possible reasons for inaction, among other more nefarious ones, was the fact that this President had an election to try and win.
Or, in other words, politics trumped the lives of American citizens and superseded defending an attack on US territory in the form of a foreign embassy!
That being the case, what exactly did inspire the White House deal for Bergdahl that resulted in the release of five dangerous terrorists who will be right back on the battlefield trying to kill Americans?
I have several thoughts to offer as speculation the most benign being the attempt to divert attention from one of the many scandals plaguing this White House but will leave filling in the blanks to my readers.
U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi trapped in a Mexican prison!
Back to the original question:
What will it take for Barack Obama to lift a finger in order to get U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi released from the hands of the government of Mexico?
It seems as if he needs to figure out some way to tie it to the release of additional terrorists from Gitmo or in some other way to the weakening or America's national security or, at the very least, diminishing our global stature!
If it's anything less I am afraid he will never have any interest.
Very sad but very true.
So how about it Mr. Obama. When will the time come for you to step-up and actually do the job that the American people are paying you to do?
You have two good years left in your administration to try and achieve the nearly impossible task of proving to the world and 'We The People' that you are somehow not the worst President in the history of the nation.
Do your job and you may once again be able to take your rightful place behind Jimmy Carter as merely the second worst US President of all time.
For all of our sakes I hope that you decide to try and achieve this goal but, in the meantime, get this soldier released!
