drugs-hafganah1A U.S. Marine who is jailed in Mexico on gun charges told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that he remains hopeful despite the fact he has been beaten, chained to a bed and verbally harassed while in custody.

In an exclusive interview on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” Thursday, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi discussed many new details of his captivity since being arrested March 31, after accidentally crossing the Mexican border with three guns in his truck.

Tahmooressi said after he crossed the border, he followed the instructions of the Mexican authorities and told his story to Mexican police officers.

“I said I have all my stuff back here, plus three guns, but I didn’t mean to be in Mexico, it was an accident and there was no place to do a U-turn,” Tahmooressi said.

One of the officers, who spoke English well, told Tahmooressi he would get him an escort to go back to the U.S. However, Tahmooressi said, then a Mexican military official took over and things changed.

“He just took control,” Tahmooressi said. “He didn’t seem to care at all about anything that I had to say. It was like a math equation in his head. Three guns, man equals prison.”

Tahmooressi said he was handcuffed and taken to a Mexican prison, where he was allowed to speak with his mother on the phone.

  1. Mexico is one of the few countries in the world other than the US that has a constitutional provision protecting the rights of its citizens to keep and bear arms. But they do not take lightly non-Mexicans bringing guns into the country. The US would treat a Mexican caught bringing guns into the US in a similar fashion.

  2. What about Prisoners of Zion in this country. Any Jew that has been selectively targeted for prosecution and given a longer than usual sentence, fits a classic definition of a Prisoner of Zion. These days, the “let my people go” slogan is more appropriate for USA than for USSR.
