Montel Williams gives an emotional testimony to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi's detention in Mexico after he crossed the border with guns in his truck. As a veteran, he tells Congress he won't let his son serve because the of the government's lack of oversight regarding Sgt. Tahmooressi's safe return home and pleaded the Obama Administration for Sgt. Tahmooressi's release.

Don't forget his ads for The Money Store. Borrow $1K - pay back $4-5K.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 6:56:44 PM EST
I respect his past, and the act he put on today - but he's a weird guy who will do most anything for a buck.

But I was surprised and impressed by his service, and for that I can give him a fresh start.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 6:57:51 PM EST
I thought he has a history of advocating for veterans?
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 6:59:14 PM EST
His show was trashy, but he sounds like a very compassionate guy for our vets. They deserve more than the crappy government system they have now.

I don't know much about the case he was speaking of, though.

Good on him for his 22 years of service, and working through his TBI/PTSD injuries. That shows true character.

I never thought this before, but if all black children were to model after him, our murder and crime rates would drop like a rock.

That is true. But there would have to be a major cultural change from wanting to be a real ass n****a to wanting to be a man who happens to be black.

I may not always agree with the man but his military pedigree deserves respect.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, on July 3, 1956, Williams enlisted in the U.S. Marines upon graduating high school in 1974. He took basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina, where he was promoted to platoon guide. After basic training, he was sent to the Desert Warfare Training Center at Twenty-nine Palms, near Palm Springs, California.

While at Twenty-nine Palms, his superiors became impressed with his leadership skills, and he was recommended for, and accepted to, the Naval Academy Preparatory school at Newport, Rhode Island. He completed the one-year course, and was accepted to the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis.

When he arrived at Annapolis on July 6, 1976, he was honorably discharged as a corporal from the marines, and enlisted into the navy as a midshipman. While at Annapolis, Williams studied Mandarin Chinese and graduated with a degree in general engineering and a minor in International Security Affairs. It was at Annapolis that Williams first began to shave his head. Upon his graduation in 1980, he became the first black enlisted marine to complete and graduate both the Academy Prep School and Annapolis

Roger. I have seen videos where marijuana works pretty well for MS.

Better weed than pain pills, which are basically heroin.

Well, I've learned in GD that medical MJ is just a loophole for dirty dopers on welfare to get their Mary Jane fix legally.

I am honestly suprised a bunch of our veterans (I am one btw) have not taken up arms and gone down to Mexico them self. It's complete bull shit that we are allowing them to hold him. Ok I get it, he screwed up and did something stupid. Regardless of why give him the fuck back, and we will take care of it!

He Marine stuck in the Mexican prison's fellow squad mates feel like the USA has left a Marine behind.

I tend to agree.

obama has done NOTHING. White, guns, a Veteran - all things he hates.

Pick up the phone obama, pretend it's a fundraiser.

This is what I thought he was going to add, but chose to mention how much respect he has for the Mex .gov and it`s ppl. Jon Hammar was days from death when they finally released him. After all we put up with from them, and as much as they cost us. To hell with those third world jack asses.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Tahmoreesi wasn't acting in any kind of "official" .mil capacity when he entered Mexico.
