Unreal! Obama State Dept. Tells Parents of Iraq Vet Held in Mexico They Can’t Do Anything to Help (Video)

Unreal. The parents of Jon Hammar, a former Marine held in Mexico on gun charges, were on with Bill O’Reilly tonight. The parents told O’Reilly the Obama State Department told the family “they can’t do anything” to help them.

Jon Hammar has been in a Mexican prison for four months on what is being called a trumped-up federal weapon charge. He was arrested Aug. 13 in Matamoros after he declared to Mexican customs agents a shotgun he planned to use for hunting in Costa Rica. He’s been held in jail since August and chained to a bed.

The Obama State Department says they can’t do anything.

Supporters of Marine Jon Hammar wage social media campaign to win his freedom.

Here is the Facebook page to support Jon Hammar.

    That is CRAZY!!! They don’t want to help…. He had the gun to go hunting & flobama’s not going to help… I bet if it was a liberal they would already be on U.S. soil with their family!!!!

  • Navy Seal

    He is a marine vet & they won’t go get him!!!! That is a disgrace!!! I would declare war on Mexico until they give him up… I fought in afgan & ask for nothing in return!!! He fought in Iraq for our country & Obama won’t go get him… Oh my goodness!!!!!

    We don’t know the whole story. We have been told this man is being held in an Mexican jail, chained to his bunk. What I do know is you do not take a gun or a bullet into Mexico period. Unless you have some super Mexican document verified and authenticated, you are risking jail time. Jail will be the least of your problems. Next will come extortion of your family in the US by Mexican lawyers who will suck you and your family dry. Oh and spare me the fable that the US customs told you it was OK to take a gun into Mexico. Mexico is the poster country for gun control.

    I find it interesting that Jon Hammar is in jail for a weapons charge. The same Mexican penal / legal charge should be applied to Holder and Obama.

    CBS News: ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Found At Site Where Mexican Beauty Queen Killed

    Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, tells CBS News that the Justice Department did not notify Congress that a Fast and Furious firearm was found at the scene in Sinaloa.

    CBS News learned the Romanian AK-47-type WASR-10 rifle found near her body was purchased by Uriel Patino at an Arizona gun shop in 2010. Patino is a suspect who allegedly purchased 700 guns while under the ATF’s watch.

    The “Fast and Furious” operation was launched in 2009 to catch trafficking kingpins, but agents lost track of about 1,400 of the more than 2,000 weapons involved.

    Authorities say the ring was believed to have supplied the Sinaloa cartel with guns. Mexico’s drug cartels often seek out guns in the U.S. because gun laws in Mexico are more restrictive than in the U.S.

    But the Mexican gov’t has no problem screaming about the supposed mistreatment of illegals and lobby to change our laws!?!?

    Send in some commandos.

    This entire administration is an absolute disgrace. Horrid barely describes it. I can only hope they get their karmic justice sooner rather than later.

    Obama Leaves Marine Hero Rotting In Mexican Prison

    Barack Obama loves to give speeches in front of our troops.

    He stood on the shoulders—or rather the necks—of the SEALS who took out Osama Bin Laden, taking the credit for himself, even inviting Hollywood in to produce the Ode to Obama, aka Zero Dark Thirty.

    But after the troops have served their purpose, they are discarded as garbage.

    Case in point: Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, the two former Navy SEALS under fire at the CIA annex in Benghazi, who begged Washington to send help to the consulate to save Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, and a number of others. When Obama refused to send help to the consulate, they went themselves, risking their lives, saving Americans, and making their way back to the CIA safe house, where they met their doom after a second wave of the terrorist attack took them out after several hours.

    They cried out for help but nobody came. Obama had no use for them anymore.[………………]

    Another president would be called up on Charges. Obama is not conducting himself as any other president would or should. It is an outrage and it seems to be an inconvenience for this for Obama.

    How dare he not care about another American. His is obligated as a president to protect and serve the American people.

    God forbid something like this happen to his love one, he would do all in his power to get them out.

    What do they mean – “They can’t do anything to help.” They could stop all money transfers between the US and Mexico until he’s returned. Or they could shut down the border. Either one would get the Mexican governments attention real fast!

    what they mean in communist speak is – they don’t want to do anything to change the situation. Therefore I conclude they are either pleased Hammar is in jail, or they just don’t care.

    Either way – that’s not a proper American response, not to mention a good way for the new Mexican President to make a good first impression.

    Patty, the treason is throughout and that is the reason we cannot get anywhere. Can you imagine if Trent Lott, Newt Gingrich or Condoleeza Rice had been called to testify on something and they’d had a ‘concussion’ that enabled them to avoid testifying on a charge that pretty much condemns the DOD for being completely renegade and collaborating with our enemies to destroy us?

  • Jeannie

    Killing our soldiers (for example sending more squads with no approval but by the DECREE of the president, to Turkey, where they will predictably be prevented from responding fully when they are attacked and vulnerable to UN pretensions of ‘humane’ warfare) or driving them to suicide is the goal of this administration.

    Do not forget the reporting in 20,000 vets who have been dragged to mental asylums to be examined, declared unfit to have weapons and stripped of their second amendment rights.

    Keep our consititutionally loyal defense completely away from their country or disarm them so when the “Obama youths” (also known as the murderous thugs that ‘powerful’ Rahl Emmanuel cannot seem to even remotely control, while keeping his citizens completely defenseless) gather Putin and Chavez and Castro and Kim Jong Un and the Taliban can praise the man they all recommended be re-elected.

    No surprise at all… as an expat I’ve had my experience with the state dept. When I needed help or at least recognition as a US citizen I got neither. A complete waste of taxpayer dollars. The state dept. is nothing but training school for faceless and useless bureaucrats.

  • donh

    If Obama had a son, he wouldn’t look like Jon….. Besides… Obama gets off looking at that picture of a helpless bitter clinger white boy shackled around the ankle…..Revenge !

  • Jack

    So how about a platoon of Marines go there and take him back!
