South Florida Marine Jailed In Mexico Thinks He'll Be Freed Soon
Posted Tuesday, June 3rd 2014 @ 6am

A Weston marine imprisoned in Mexico is reacting to the Obama administration freeing five Taliban leaders in exchange for an American soldier held in Afghanistan.

Sgt. Andrew Thamooressi doesn't feel the American government has abandoned him.

He tells Glenn Beck several Congress members are in his corner and Secretary of State John Kerry has written a letter indicating he's aware of Thamooressi's predicament.

 

The President is expected to release a statement in reaction to the WhiteHouse.gov petition demanding the Marine's release.
