Rep. Matt Salmon: Obama 'Didn't Lift a Finger' to Help Free Marine in Mexican Prison

Just as I commented yesterday, not that it surprised anyone.

 President Barack Obama "didn't lift a finger" to free retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from a Mexican prison on Friday after he was held there for nearly eight months on weapons charges, Rep. Matt Salmon told Newsmax on Saturday.

"You have to be clear on when we say the administration," the Arizona Republican cautioned in an interview. "The people from the White House? Zero help."

Salmon, whose House subcommittee chaired two hearings on the case, said he met about four months ago with Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing "and talked with him face to face about Andrew Tahmooressi."

He told Newsmax that he asked Biden "whether he would get involved, whether the president would get involved — and he assured me that they would."

The next week, President Obama talked with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto by telephone "and he did not bring it up," Salmon said.



  1. Bill Richardson should have been told to fuck off. No "Dems" wanted the Marine freed.

  2. Yet, they freed some treasonous, muslim loving deserter who tries to present
    himself as beaten-down and sickly. egad

    1. & the investigation into it has been completed, but no news since the election is around the corner I guess.
