    Yeah, it's about time, actually way passed time. But I bet the Regime offered the Mexican government all kinds of perks to make it happen. Note that it's almost on the very eve of the election. Dems don't miss a trick. They use every opportunity to gain a vote, Ethics be damned.

    Good point. Now just watch this weekend... there will be a story planted on how Obama or whomever personally intervened to get him released and make the Obama regime a hero (or that's how the press will slavishly play it).

    Still, regardless of how or why, it's damn good that he's home!

    ps. I hate Mexico.

    This is great good news and Obama can claim he swooped in on golf cart one to personally rescue him. I don't care, This guy is finally coming home. A pox on the Whitehouse of course, but the ordeal is over

    Republican or Democrat-- it is their freaking job to get American citizens* back home. Party shouldn't have anything to do with it. Get their asses back home!

    Once he's safely back on our side of the border- - - - -isn't it time to occupy about 50 miles of that cesspool south of the Rio Grande? Build the fences down that way, and plant land mines from there to the border!

    Yeah, I like that! Call it a Militarized Zone and welcome those south of it to come play hop scotch through our mine field. I bet that would put a damper on Illegals coming across!!!

    Glad he is home but he is dumber than a rock. Once he realized he couldn't turn around he should have parked the vehicle and walked away while he was still in the US.

    I just imagine there are a few leftover River Rats from the Mekong delta (anybody but John Kerry!) who would be willing to patrol the Rio Grande. Nothing like a Ma Deuce or two on a shallow-draft boat to make crossing the river interesting!

    Works for me but I'd settle for a mile of flat, no cover ground of free fire zone courtesy of combat engineers. Drones, Hellfires, sharks with fricken laserbeams, just whatever.

    Have you ever watched Border wars. The resources and man power used to arrest those crossing the river only to send them back to try again.

    I'm glad he is released. Why they would trade captured terrorist and bend over backwards to get that soldier home who may have been a deserter and not hardly lifted a finger for the Marine is beyond me.

    Because guns were involved?

    Because felony possession of a gun was involved.

    He was committing a felony in California by possessing an unregistered AR-15. That makes him a criminal on both sides of the border. California is considering prosecuting him now that he's released from Mexico.

    I don't agree with this, but it is factual.

    Not disagreeing with you, but back to BC's post, it is interesting that walking off your post is acceptable, but a Marine with an AR not on the "list" gets you an extended stay in a Mexican prison.

    Who knows what motivates this administration? Maybe Obama was pissed because only Holder is allowed to smuggle guns into Mexico.

    He was driving around California (of all places) with an EBR in his car.

    If he'd been caught in California with the AR-15, we would have never heard of him. He'd been arrested, prosecuted, and likely discharged from the Marines. That still might happen.

    If he is North of the border and has an otherwise clean record, I wish a Marine General would pick him up and tell Gov. Moonbeam if he wants him to make an appointment at eighth and eye and pack a lunch.

    I agree with you in theory, but enlisted men and women are still required to follow the laws of the states they are in, just like the rest of us.

    I sure as hell don't want to be arrested for simply possessing an item that is perfectly legal in Idaho because of a line in the dirt. This is something I am very familiar with. I live in Idaho and work in Washington. I drive across the border five days a week. On the flip side of this, Idaho police are targeting Washingtonians for weed possession since legalization. This nonsense makes me reconsider my stance on Federalism.

    If someone is stupid enough to get budsted like that for illegal possession of marijuana, good , arrested development etc.... like drunk driving, stupid.

    Anyone watch McHale's Navy ? Don't expect today's Military brass to help soldiers jammed up in firearms beefs. Bunch of Binginhams (sp?)

    Let me get this straight...getting busted for illegal possession of weed is the act of a stupid person, but driving around California with a loaded AR-15 (and crossing an international border) is the act of a misunderstood genius that should warrant military intervention?

    Geez...

    I never said anything of the kind, I simply said the brass would not intervene, it is up to the individual to either obey or disobey an unconstitutional law, but be prepared to deal with the consequences, like an author once said, "if you grab a tiger by the tail, you better have a plan for dealing with his teeth.

    The thing is, if Ovomit could have gotten the Sgt. released, the only reason he waited so long is to use this as a prop to get the fools to vote for Democraps.

    It is like a fellow I know, he was DDd from the US Navy for smoking pot, got caught on the fantail, really stupid.

    Do stupid things, expect stupid prizes, this joker knew the rules and regulations and chose to wag his tallywhacker in peoples faces.

    I know I am the minority here, but if you cross into Mexico with guns that are very illegal in that country, you're going to have a bad time...
