Obama spoke with Mexican president, but jailed Marine’s name ‘didn’t come up’

[Ed. – We’ve all had that experience. You’re on the phone, chewing the fat with a pal. You want to ask how his knee is doing since he had his surgery, but the opportunity to mention it never arises. That kind of thing.]

On Thursday evening, Fox News Host Greta Van Susteren said she hoped President Barack Obama did not blow it by not talking to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto about U.S. Marine Stg. Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been languishing in a Mexican jail since March.

The two Presidents spoke on Thursday about the border crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Van Susteren, who has been relentlessly reporting on the case, said there is “NO MENTION” in the readout about whether Obama spoke about Tahmooressi, who, as Breitbart News has noted, “accidentally crossed the Mexican border with guns in his truck” on March 31 before he was “promptly arrested, chained, and beaten by Mexican authorities.”

“I hope President Obama did not blow this one….did he mention Sgt. Tahmooressi to President Nieto or not?” Van Susteren wrote. “I am so hoping that President Obama had a ‘side conversation’ with and a promise by President Nieto that somehow is not part of the readout.”

Van Susteren said that, “the more I think about it, the more I am convinced that President Obama had to have said something, made some sort of deal…..he could not just ignore Sgt. Tahmooreesi, right?  No one could ignore this, right?”
