Here’s What Obama Demanded of Otto’s Family Months Before He Died

By Cillian Zeal   Sept 27, 2017

In an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday, the parents of Otto Warmbier — the American college student imprisoned in North Korea who died shortly after being released from North Korean custody — revealed that the Obama administration had told them they should keep quiet during their son’s captivity.

Warmbier, an American student who was detained during a visit to Pyongyang, died in June after being brought back to the United States. In the interview, Otto’s father Fred Warmbier credited the Trump administration with helping bring their son home by “aggressively” pursuing the young man’s release.

Warmbier was initially taken into custody back in January of 2016 for allegedly stealing a North Korean propaganda poster.

Otto Warmbier’s parents detail gruesome injuries their son had after N. Korea returned him to the US

The parents of college student Otto Warmbier, who died after spending a year in a North Korean prison, detailed their son’s injuries after he was returned by North Korea to the U.S.

What did they say?

On Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, Otto’s parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, called the North Korean country “terrorists.”

“They’re terrorists,” Fred said. “They kidnapped Otto. They tortured him. They intentionally injured him.”

Fred and Cindy disputed initial reports that indicated their 22-year-old son was returned home in a state of a coma, and said that when they first saw him, he was “jerking violently” and emitting “inhuman sounds.”
