If you’ve watched the news at all this week you know that U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is being held shackled to a bed in a Mexican jail where he has been punched, slapped, cursed at and deprived of water and food.
No word from Barack Obama on that, but he’s probably been busy this week.
So Greta Van Susteren at Fox News decided to make an effort to expedite the young sergeant’s release.
A petition on the White House website asking President Obama to demand the release of a Marine sergeant in a Mexico prison has garnered more than 100,000 online signatures — a threshold that typically elicits an administration response.
“The effect of this unjust incarceration on a decorated combat Marine is despairing,” says the petition, which as of Saturday afternoon had 116,051 signatures.
Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested March 31 after crossing the Mexican border with three guns in his truck.
Tahmooressi said he accidentally crossed the border and immediately told Mexican authorities that he had three guns in his possession and that he was unable to make a U-turn.
He said he was handcuffed and taken to prison and that his treatment worsened when he tried to escape.
Tahmooressi, who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, said guards hit him so many times in face that he felt his jaw fall out of place.
He also said he was stripped naked and chained to a bed, with his feet on one end and his hands on another.
A State Department official, in a letter on Friday to Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who has been pushing for the Marine’s release, said consular officers have visited Tahmooressi 12 times.
The State Department said last week they have raised concerns with Mexican authorities about his treatment.
“We’ve been very engaged,” said department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. “We’ll continue to press the case.”
So let’s move on you racists who are always trying to trap President Obama for doing something wrong when he doesn’t even give himself enough credit as it is.

In 2014, progressive Barack Obama won’t even make a public statement for one young Marine who is being held and tortured in a Mexican prison for something he didn’t do. Yet he came out with for Michael Sam within 15 minutes.
My, how far progressivism has progressed in just over 100 years.
