WOOHOO! A Mexican judge has ordered the immediate release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, jailed for 7 months for accidentally crossing the Mexican border with weapons in his vehicle. It's about time!

If God deserved credit, he would have parted a sea to make sure he didn't make a retard-turn to begin with.

There's no proof it was an accident except his own testimony. And even so, when you accidentally commit a crime you still do the time.

I think we should have traded 30 million Mexicans for his release.

I hope so. The Mexican government will probably charge them a few thousand dollars for "storage".

Honestly he should just be lucky that they let him go. For someone who smuggled guns over an international border he sure got off light.

"Smuggled" implies intent, Axl. You aren't that dumb.

I'm not the dumb one, I didn't "accidentally" bring an arsenal of weapons over an international border. He says it was accidental. Maybe it was but you can't handle something like that lightly. He is very lucky right now, and should be greatful.

Axl, I didn't mean to call you dumb. But given the sergeant some slack – (1) he has PTSD; (2) he had ALL his belongings with him, which just happened to include his guns; and (3) the only turnaround was poorly marked, and he was forced to cross the

border, after which he IMMEDIATELY and voluntarily declared that he had missed the turn and didn't intend to stay, and that he had weapons in his vehicle. That's not a smuggler. It's a shell-shocked Vet who got lost.

Are you really justifying them firing at our border patrol?

Justifying? No, explaining why it happened. They are called accidents and they happen.

They may have accidentally crossed the border (though I'm suspicious of that) but that doesn't excuse them then firing on our border patrol when they're clearly in the wrong. That's no accident.

As POTUS I would have explained the situation and asked nicely to have him released as soon as it happened. If refused, I'd have sent the SEALs. You wanna play hardball? Catch, mother effer.

Accidentally! The last U-turn was poorly marked and many people missed it. Recently, the sign was enlarged and flashing lights installed, but too late for the Sgt.

"Thank Greta" refers to FoxNews' Greta VanSusteren, more responsible than any other media person for raising the public's awareness of this young Marine's plight. My vote, of course, is "Thank God!" ✞
