After North Korea claimed to have tested a nuclear bomb recently, John Kerry warned that “appropriate action” would be taken. We’ll now await the Obama administration’s reaction to a new development in North Korea:

From Fox News:
In language that mirrors past North Korean claims of outside conspiracies, state media claimed Otto Frederick Warmbier entered the North as a tourist with a plot to undermine unity among the North Koreans with “the tacit connivance of the U.S. government and under its manipulation.”
The report from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Warmbier was “arrested while perpetrating a hostile act,” but didn’t say when he was detained or explain the nature of the act.
Warmbier was reportedly in North Korea for a five-day New Year trip.
Why in God's name would you go to North Korea? I hope he gets out but that stupidity gets you killed. https://t.co/tlszv14LAx
