McCain: Only 'Stupid' Americans Would Still Have Interest In Visiting North Korea

A coroner's office in OH is investigating the death of a 22-year-old college student who died shortly after his return to the USA after almost a year and a half in North Korean detention, a spokesman said Tuesday. Doctors at Cincinnati Hospital said he had brain damage that most likely was caused by deprivation of oxygen, not botulism, which the North Korean government said had caused Warmbier's illness. The US says it is concerned by North Korea's nuclear and missile tests.
In March 2016 Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor prison after taking a propaganda poster with the image of the late Kim Jong-Il, the father of current leader Kim Jong-Un.
"Now, the assessment of risk for Americans visiting North Korea has become too high".
It says he developed food-borne botulism and was given a sleeping pill but never reawakened.
The 22-year-old United States student died on 19 June shortly after being freed from a detention facility in North Korea.

It is impossible to get reliable information about the welfare and treatment of foreigners detained in North Korea - Washington only learned of Otto Warmbier's condition in early June. Their commitment did mean the release of 10 Americans from North Korean custody while Obama was president.
"It's a total disgrace what happened to Otto", Trump said during an event in the Oval Office.
"It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost - future time that won't be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds", the Warmbier family said in the statement. "I don't think anyone should travel to North Korea".
Moon said that while "we can not know for sure that North Korea killed Mr Warmbier". At a daily news briefing in Beijing, a Foreign Ministry spokesman called the death "really a tragedy" but stopped short of reprimanding North Korea.
At the time of Warmbier's release, a White House official said Joseph Yun, the US envoy on North Korea, had met with North Korean foreign ministry representatives in Norway the previous month.
A North Korean official has indirectly denied any wrongdoing in the handling of Warmbier. The North Korean government has vowed to develop a nuclear-tipped intercontinental missile capable of hitting the USA mainland.
