Let us not forget another American hostage, Otto Warmbier, who died in June 2017, just days after he was brought back to the U.S. with severe brain damage. He was arrested in January 2016 and accused of stealing a propaganda poster and was sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor. Never again.
