This means that the White House will be working quickly to get Sgt. Andrew
Tahmooressi released from a Mexican jail too..........right?
I mean here we have someone who did NOT walk off from their post willinging, but was instead arrested while on leave, who is being held against his
will. Who by some accounts is being tortured and treated quite badly in that jail. Who was not actively seeking out people who mean to do others harm,
but instead simply made a wrong turn and ended up on the wrong side of the US/Mexican border.
Right? I mean they should be acting quickly for him, yes?
Tahmooressi's story is falling apart. It's too early to say if he was attempting to smuggle in weapons to his Mexican friends or not, but more
evidence is being released by border authorities and it is painting a much darker picture of Tahmooressi.

According to the print edition of the link above (which has the full version), Tahmorresi admits he met with several Mexican 'friends' in Tijuana,
after walking across the border. This was one of six
trips into Mexico from the same
border crossing. He drove across that border
crossing several times, yet claimed after his arrest it was his first time. His lawyer told him via email to "stick to the script", not to admit
previous border crossings. (Mexican authorities also would have released him after his hearing, except his mother also fired his "stick to the
script" lawyer, which is why he is still being held in jail until his next hearing.)

It's also now known he brought in over 400 rounds of ammo with these weapons, and that he left these weapons inside his vehicle, unlocked and
unattended, while he 'partied' in Mexico (a violation of CA law.)
Judicial Process versus Media
Spin – Debunking Media’s Coverage of Andrew Tahmooressi
His story about not being able to turn around is also bunk. Every lane has access to a turnaround, and his claim that being in the "far right lane"
kept him from the u-turn next to the left lane is false, as the far right lane is for declarations, and also
has a turnaround. But that is not
where he was driving through, after sifting through his lies about being in the far right "declaration" lane, the video shows he went through the
"no declaration" lane closer to the left. Had the border agents not stopped him fro missing a license plate, he would have been through to re-meet
his Mexican friends with a stockpile of firearms and ammo.
Yes, there are jersey barriers at the San Ysidro crossing but they appear to end well before you actually cross into Mexico. Not being able to make
a U-turn before entering Mexico was the same lame excuse used by trucker Jabin Bogan in 2012 when he was busted with 250,000 rounds of NATO grade ammo
in his semi trailer.

How could Tahmooressi not know he was going into Mexico? What is it about this photo that would give a person a clue they were about to enter a
This is a raw photo of the weapons discovered by Mexican Customs agents and SEDENA during a search of Andrew Tahmooressi’s 2003 Ford F-150. This

Two last thoughts: First, his 911 call, which Tahmooressi, his mother, and right-wing media portrayed as being made immediately after being stopped by
Mexican border agents was not actually made until one hour
after his arrest. Second, he was not under any PTSD treatment. He lived in Florida,
and between FLA and DC, he had several treatment centers available to him, all much closer then southern CA. - not to mention, he would have been able
to go to closer treatment centers in FLA or in the south and still live at home, instead of - as his mother claims, living homeless in his truck at
the Mexican border in California, armed to the teeth, partying by day in Tijuana yet homeless at night in 'Murica...
Tahmooressi is no POW. He is not a political prisoner. Right-wing media once again is full of BS.
