It was announced today that Army Sargent Bowe Bergdahl who was a Taliban prisoner in Afghanistan was released, today. It is reported that SEALS are escorting him home.
The Obama Administration traded five Afghan Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo to secure Bergdahl’s release.
This is a good thing. One American soldier is worth a lot to us. Thank God we will have him home.
Now, the President needs to get to work to get others released from foreign imprisonment. Marine Sargent Andrew Tahmooressi was jailed after he took a wrong turn at the US/Mexican border and was detained by Mexican military authorities because Tahmooressi had weapons in his truck. These weapons are legal in the United States, but not in Mexico.
So far, the US government has not shown interest in rescuing this American Marine who is unjustly in a Mexican prison where he is being beaten regularly.
Mr President. It’s time to get busy. Free Sgt. Tahmooressi.
