Fox News’ Ed Henry today pressed White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on the Marine jailed in Mexico.

President Barack Obama has said publicly that he wants to deal with PTSD in veterans, so Henry asked Earnest today what the White House might do about Tahmooressi.

Henry said, “Republican Ed Royce today said that he asked Vice President Biden recently to ask President Obama to call the president of Mexico directly and get him out of jail and he said that didn’t happen. Why not?”

“I don’t believe it has, and that’s because this is an issue that’s being handled through the State Department and through the existing channels at the State Department,” Earnest responded.
