Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight has issued a call to arms as the nation honors their military with heartfelt thanks and thoughtful appreciation. He is fed up with President Obama’s “executive privilege” and urges Americans to voice some outrage.
“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,”; Mr. Voight tells The Washington Times, citing a recent Fox News interview with the U.S. Marine.
“Needless to say, his incarceration was a total lie. 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,” Mr. Voight continues, referring to the release earlier this year of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
