‘How dare we! ‘Montel Williams delivers ‘hell of a’ tearful speech about Tahmooressi release

Former talk show host Montel Williams went before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee Wednesday to make an impassioned plea for the release of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

Tahmooressi made a wrong turn at the border in March, accidently crossing into Mexico with several firearms in his vehicle — firearms that are legal in the United States. The marine, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, has been held in a Mexican prison for the past six months.

Williams, a U.S. Navy and Marine Corp veteran, tearfully questioned the U.S. government’s commitment to members of the military.

“To me, this is an abomination,” Williams said, his voice breaking with emotion. “He didn’t hesitate to say, ‘Aye aye, sir,’ to go off and serve. How dare we! How dare we, as a nation, hesitate to get that young man back! We sit here, in this city, and discuss sending more young people off to die!”

It didn’t take long for word of Williams’ moving testimony to make it Twitter, prompting folks to offer their thoughts on the matter, including current and former members of Congress:
