Investor’s Business Daily is reporting that President Obama sought to publicly apologize to the Japanese government for America’s use of atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II. The weapons probably saved more than one hundred thousand U.S. lives, one of them being my father’s. He was on his way to Japan for the invasion, after being wounded twice fighting the Germans in Italy. The Japanese reportedly rejected the President’s idea.
Four words and some choice punctuation: Are you *%@! kidding me? Was the President next planning to apologize to the Germans about Dresden?
I really, really, really hope this report proves to be inaccurate. But it so sounds like Barack Obama. Amazing if true.
