No American Soldier Left Behind

Except for this one.

Maybe if Sgt. Tahmooressi had been taken prisoner by Mexican police while in the act of deserting his unit he would be home by now...

Fox News tells us:
A Florida lawmaker Friday criticized President Obama for apparently not mentioning the jailed U.S. Marine who has been since March in a Mexican prison during a meeting with his counterpart in the country.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., said "it's pathetic" that the mother of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has to plead for her son's release from a Mexican prison while Obama apparently did not address the issue earlier in the day while meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto

"It is inexcusable, it is inexplicable, it is obscene, it is horrific," Ros-Lehtinen told Greta Van Susteren on "On the Record."

Tahmooressi, who suffers from PTSD and served in Afghanistan, has been languishing in custody since he was arrested in late March after he accidentally drove into the country with three legally purchased guns in his truck.

It's a Mexican response to "Fast and Furious", which they are still furious about.

They're simply doing it to f%&k with us and this poor screwed up Marine is the wheat between the stones.
