Perhaps you hadn’t heard, but the U.S. citizen the President Donald Trump administration finally rescued from North Korea has died.
The U.S. acted too late to save this young man, despite Trump getting him out in record time (the President has only been in office for a few months).
On top of which, it’s plain as day that North Korea’s cruel abuse of Warmbier ultimately resulted in his death after being freed, which nobody should ignore, either.
The culprit in this tragedy should be obvious as well: Former President Barack Obama.
“Fred Fleitz, senior vice president for Policy and Programs at the Center for Security Policy and former CIA analyst, joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday to discuss the death of Otto Warmbier just days after returning from North Korea.
He also talked about the possibility that Loretta Lynch will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Fleitz said, ‘This is just such a terrible story. The North Korean government murdered this young man. They murdered him. And we know that North Korea is a criminal regime.
But what I’m very angry about is how the Obama administration did almost nothing to get him back.‘
‘There were no consular visits,’ Fleitz continued, ‘which are required under international law by the state representing us, Sweden, to check on him while he was in prison. There were none.’”
Fleitz added that the Obama administration never even bothered to contact Warmbier about the details of his arrest.
Furthermore, Obama officials told the Warmbier family to “stay silent” and “do nothing,” which Fleitz defines as an “idiotic policy of strategic patience, which we now know was an utter failure.”
Just another way in which Obama failed the American people.
And unfortunately, this time, a too-young U.S. citizen has paid for it with his life.
