Warmbiers Blast Obama For Not Saving Son From DPRK

Warmbiers Blast Obama For Not Saving Son From DPRK

Otto Warmbier, 22, who arrived in the United States on Tuesday, is stable but "shows no sign of understanding language, responding to verbal commands or awareness of his surrounding", said Dr. Daniel Kanter, medical director of the neuroscience intensive care unit at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The hermit state freed Otto Warmbier on Tuesday after about 17 months in custody.

Foreign nationals have also been detained on political grounds, including two U.S. university professors in Pyongyang who were arrested this year for allegedly plotting anti-state acts.

"However, he shows no signs of understanding language, responding to verbal commands or awareness to his surroundings".

The elder Warmbier said he did not believe North Korea's explanation that the coma resulted from botulism and a sleeping pill.

Otto Warmbier has returned from North Korea to the USA with what the doctors are calling extensive brain damage.

They were told - but did not believe - that shortly after the trial Otto Warmbier contracted botulism and was given a sleeping pill, and that he had never recovered.

To the North Korean claim that Otto suffered from botulism, Dr. Brandon Foreman said all tests have found no evidence of active botulism.

For his alleged crime, Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.

"Dennis Rodman had nothing to do with Otto", he said.

Rodman has been visiting North Korea since Tuesday, his latest trip to the isolated state.

Unlike Elon Musk, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty chose to remain on Trump's business advisory council following the U.S. withdrawal. As The Two-Way reported , he stated that the agreement gives other countries "an economic edge over the United States".

The tour group that brought a 22 year-old American student to North Korea where he was later detained and sent home over a year later in a coma advertises the country as "probably one of the safest countries on Earth to visit".

"I think the State Department was negotiating pretty tough with them, so I don't know if we're ever going to find the answer [to what they did to Otto], Warmbier stated". At a press conference on Thursday, images of Otto Warmbier's brain were revealed, they showed significant loss of brain tissue in all areas of his brain. He is in stable condition but sustained a severe neurological injury, the official said.

In 2015, Rodman's visits were captured by the documentary "Big Bang in Pyongyang", which features Rodman teaching basketball to North Korean players and singing "Happy Birthday" to Kim Jong Un.

"We do not see any skin indications that are strongly suggestive of mistreatment", he said. His family asked his doctors to disclose details about his condition amid intense scrutiny and questions about his condition.

"There are three other Americans now being held in North Korea".

The U.S. government accuses North Korea of using such detainees as political pawns.

The elder Warmbier praised actions by President Donald Trump's administration to secure his son's release after the Obama administration had encouraged the family to take a low profile to avoid angering the North Korean regime.

Warmbier is taken to North Korea's top court in Pyongyang North Korea.

"Those toughest restrictions on travel and tourism right now only really apply to Cuba", says former Treasury Department official Elizabeth Rosenberg.

The Warmbier family kept quiet "on the false premise that (North Korea) would treat Otto fairly and let him go".
