American Otto Warmbier, 22, who was found guilty of taking down a poster in North Korea, is dead. Sentenced to 15 years hard labor, the Trump Administration secured his release approximately a week before he died. Otto’s father, Fred Warmbier said former Pres. Obama did nothing to help his son.
Otto had remained imprisoned for a year and a half. North Korean officials claimed he had contacted “botulism”. This had been proven false. Doctors report severe neurological damage.
The only evidence of Otto’s vandalism is a security video, where his face cannot be seen. His “confession” was, no doubt, coerced.
North Korea has used this event as a way to humiliate the United States. I would advise the President to take the strongest retaliatory measure against their leader Kim Jong Un.
