Academy Award Winner Jon Voight blasts Obama over “Executive Privilege”

Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight spoke to The Washington Times about Obama’s abuse of “executive privilege” and the American soldier kept in a Mexican prison.  The outrage is understood. President Obama is too much of a wimp to call up Mexico and demand the return of our soldier.  For those who say foreign policy isn’t that simple, this is Mexico we are talking about.  It IS that simple.  He wasn’t held in Russia or China.  We have complete dominance over Mexico and making a simple demand for our own soldiers return should have been relevantly simple.

When discussing the issue Voight said, “Today is Veteran’s Day. We honor all our living and fallen heroes – thousands of young men who sacrificed their lives so we can live as free men. One of our own young Marines, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, was just released from a Mexican prison after long tortuous months, and we just found out from his own words during a Greta Van Susteran interview that he tried to kill himself with a broken light bulb that he plunged into his neck hoping to die, as to not endure his torture any longer.”

He went on to say, “He was totally innocent. President Obama has released known terrorist murderers in a trade for an American soldier who was believed to be a deserter,” referring to the release earlier this year of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

He also said, “Obama had nothing to say for Sgt. Tahmooressi, who endured this unthinkable torture. He made no attempt to free him. Not one word was said in his defense. Obama’s view of what is right and wrong is totally distorted. There should be total outrage for his policies he will put into action. He must be stopped. Every freedom loving American should voice their outrage against his executive privilege.”
