  5. Mike Pompeo:

    It should also remind us all what is too easy to turn away from : there is evil in the world and the barbarians leading North Korea are a part of North Korea, one of the highlights of my time as secretary of state was bringing home three Americans from the clutches of such a regime. But the joy I felt that night was tempered by the knowledge that we could not do the same for Otto Warmbier and Otto Warmbier family. The promising future of Otto Warmbier was crushed by North Korea’s inhumanity. This makes our duty to remember Otto Warmbier so real for me. It would be fitting to name this street in New York City in honor of Otto Warmbier as a reminder to the North Koreans, and to the world, that America will never suffer brutal dictators without responding, that we value life and that we will not rest until those responsible for heinous actions like theirs have been confronted.
