Joshua Geltzer co-wrote a piece for CNN about the release of Otto Warmbier from captivity in North Korea and the need to safely return other Americans still held hostage abroad:

It can be easy for busy policymakers, when grappling with major foreign policy challenges, to lose sight of individual ones such as Warmbier's. But we are glad to see that the Trump administration, with the help of the State Department, maintained focus on securing Warmbier's freedom, and we urge the administration to do the same as it increasingly bears down on the challenges faced by the United States in Afghanistan.
