Greta: Why Hasn't Obama Been Sgt. Tahmooressi's Fiercest Advocate?
“I just don’t get it,” Greta Van Susteren said in her “Off the Record” commentary this evening. ”Why has President Obama shown no interest in our Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi?”
The Marine has been jailed since March, struggling in a sluggish Mexican court system. So, why hasn’t Obama been “the fiercest advocate” for him?
“If there is a good reason President Obama is stiffing Sgt. Tahmooressi, tell us. If he knows something about Sgt. Tahmooressi that we don’t, and that would change our minds about pushing for his release, tell us.”
Van Susteren said she doesn’t want to push to get the Marine out of jail if there’s no good reason, but she’s also not going to diss him for no good reason.
“He fought for this country – I owe it to him, you owe it to him, and so does President Obama,” she said.
