Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News’ Ed Henry about the level of concern the White House had for Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi , who is being held in a Mexican prison under inhumane conditions and living with a severe case of untreated PTSD.
“There was another report and hearing today on Capitol Hill about Sgt. Tahmooressi, the U.S. Marine who’s been in a Mexican jail. The reason why it’s important among other reasons is that various lawmakers as well as various veterans have come forward and said he has PTSD which this president has said is a very serious issue that he cares deeply about. How concerned is this White House that he is still in a Mexican jail, had PTSD according to VA doctors and hasn’t gotten treatment in several months,” Henry asked.
