    President Barack Obama continued his international apology tour for American deeds overseas, traveling to the Asian country of Laos to deliver a speech. Obama acknowledged that the United States dropped more than two million tons of bombs in the country, intervening in the country’s civil war. He sorrowfully noted that “villages and entire valleys were obliterated” as a result of the bombing, including the “ancient Plain of Jars.” “That conflict was another reminder that, whatever the cause, whatever our intentions, war inflicts a terrible toll, especially on innocent men, women and children,” Obama said. “Today, I stand with you in...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan isn’t the only loser in last Sunday’s elections. President Obama had made Erdogan a focus of his policy. The voters in that troubled NATO country voted against Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) and in so doing, slapped President Obama. President Obama went to Ankara in April, 2009, for an early edition of his Apology Tours. He spoke to the Turkish Parliament assuring deputies there that “the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.” Every challenge that we face is more easily met if we tend to our own democratic...

    President Barack Obama should have gone to Pearl Harbor first. That way, when he got to Hiroshima, he could have told the world how Hiroshima would never have happened had not the Japanese provoked a war with the United States. He could also have added that Hiroshima would not have happened had Japan, having lost the war, surrendered. But the fanatic Japanese leaders refused, and vowed to fight a scorched earth final battle on Japanese soil. This meant a potential U.S. invasion of the Japanese homeland, an invasion that would have led to an horrific battle. That battle would have...

    It’s an incontrovertible fact that millions of lives were saved because President Harry Truman dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. I know because I’m one of them. My father enlisted in the U.S. Navy the day he turned 18 in 1945. He finished his basic training as the Allies were preparing for “Operation Downfall” – the code name for the invasion of the Japanese mainland. Experts predicted it would be ten times bloodier than Iwo Jima. Casualty estimates ran into the millions – for both sides. Lest we forget, Imperial Japan was a ruthless warrior culture whose war crimes rivaled the...

In the course of discussing the event afterward, though, Williams threw some shade in the direction of the U.S. military and then-President Harry Truman by complaining that “we’re the only nation to have used them in anger” against the horrifying Axis Powers member.

    HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) -- Every gesture. Every word uttered or avoided. Every person Barack Obama speaks with, listens to and stands beside in Hiroshima. All of it will help determine the success of a trip with huge potential political and diplomatic pitfalls, both in America and Asia. The leader of the United States is already one of the world's most watched people. But that daily scrutiny will be magnified exponentially when Obama makes the first presidential journey to the place where the first atomic bomb attack killed tens of thousands 71 years ago.

    The dropping of two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 remains the only wartime use of nuclear weapons in history. No one knows exactly how many Japanese citizens were killed by the two American bombs. A macabre guess is around 140,000. The atomic attacks finally shocked Emperor Hirohito and the Japanese militarists into surrendering. John Kerry recently visited Hiroshima. He became the first Secretary of State to do so -- purportedly as a precursor to a planned visit next month by President Obama, who is rumored to be considering an apology to Japan...

    On April 11, John Kerry became the first Secretary of State to pay his respects to at Hiroshima’s memorial to those who died when the atomic bomb was dropped on that city on August 6, 1945. That event, and the dropping of a second atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki on August 9, brought a victorious and rapid end to World War II, and a Japanese surrender 6 days after Nagasaki, saving potentially millions of casualties on both sides if the U.S. had been forced to invade the Japanese home islands. Kerry’s statement during the visit, as reported by...

    At the beginning of his presidency, Barack Obama traveled to Cairo, Europe and the United Nations to "apologize" for past American actions and attitudes, which he claimed helped create divisions between countries. At a town hall meeting before a mix of French and German citizens in Strasbourg, France on April 3, 2009, the president said the United States was partially to blame for increased tensions with Europe following the Iraq war: "there have been times where America (has) shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe.

    The Benghazi scandal is easy to understand, and that’s what makes it so dangerous for the White House. Simply, the Obama administration’s narrative — that al-Qaeda was on the run, that Hosni Mubarak had to go, and that the Arab Spring was a good thing — was proven false when four brave Americans were killed. Because the administration was a slave to their own narrative, rather than aggressively fighting al-Qaeda, rather than recognizing the $50 billion investment in Mubarak’s stability, and rather than realizing that the upheaval they sponsored in the Middle East empowered Muslim Brotherhood radicals, they lied repeatedly...

"This has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign," Obama protested. "And every fact-checker and every reporter who's looked at it, governor, has said this is not true." In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority. • Samantha Power.

    Sorry, fact checkers at Associated Press: you are wrong about Barack Obama’s claim that Mitt Romney’s accusation that Obama went on an “apology tour” was a “whopper” (of a lie). You sniffed, “Romney has repeatedly and wrongly accused the president of traveling the world early in his presidency and apologizing for U.S. behavior. Obama didn’t say ‘sorry’ in those travels.” An “Apology Tour” does not mean Obama had to literally say the word "sorry" during those visits.

    You can argue that sometimes a nation should apologize for some past conduct. You can argue that this is appropriate, but not on foreign soil.

Frankly, he has done more of this self-flagellation in more places than any other president. It is a record that should never be broken.

    Priorities: NASA's chief says his mission is not to return us to space but to help the Muslim world feel good about its scientific contributions. The moon we should be landing on should not be crescent-shaped. At a time when the only missile programs in the Arab world, namely in Syria and Iran, are aimed at hitting Israel with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, NASA administrator Charles Bolden goes on Al Jazeera to tell the Muslim world his "foremost" goal was to make them feel good about their achievements in math, science and engineering.

    Diplomacy: The administration's apology tour continues with a mea culpa to the world's worst human-rights violator for Arizona's enforcement of U.S. immigration law. You'd think Tiananmen Square was in Phoenix. In talks last week with China on the subject of human rights, the U.S. delegation volunteered how sorry we were for Arizona's decision to protect its citizens and its border against illegal immigration — the operative word being "illegal." You would assume the Chinese broached the subject to blunt any criticism of their policies and record. But our delegates beat them to it by groveling on their own initiative in...

    Realpolitik: At the start of the Nuclear Security Summit, we see an all-too-familiar gesture from our president. Is it a matter of courtesy, an idiosyncrasy or the administration's acceptance of a new world order? If there ever was an iconic tribute to the idea of U.S. exceptionalism, it was the fact that the American flag was never dipped during the parade of athletes at the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games. We never dipped or bowed to anybody, with the possible exception of figurehead royalty.

    The UN's Human Rights Council (HRC) is a perfect example of what is wrong with the United Nations, at best it us a joke, at worst it does more to harm human rights than to protect those being abused. The council is a great example of the lunatics running the asylum, it is loaded with human rights violators. Last night, when the State Department released its most recent analysis of the human rights situation in the countries of the world, nearly half of the countries (22 out of 46) on the UN's HRC were described as being serious human rights...

    President Obama, stinging from criticism of what opponents have called his "apology tour" to places like Dresden, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, announced that he will visit Georgia next year to heal the wounds from America's Civil War. Obama's visit will begin in Atlanta on September 2, where Sherman's march began and later that day he will visit Savannah, where Sherman concluded his march on December 22, 1864. Along the way, Sherman conducted total warfare and burned everything in sight, including private homes and businesses. By Sherman's own estimate, his army caused over $100 million in property damage in Georgia alone. Off...

    Cold War: The White House has announced our absence at ceremonies marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Meanwhile, Russia has been practicing a nuclear invasion of an abandoned Poland. The Berlin Wall has been a famous backdrop for American presidents sounding the battle cry of liberty in the struggle against tyranny. It was there that John F. Kennedy expressed our solidarity with the encircled residents of that outpost of freedom with his famous "Ich bin ein Berliner." And it was there that Ronald Reagan, with a defiant "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall," voiced our...

    The mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki invited President Barack Obama on Tuesday to visit the two cities hit by American nuclear weapons ... ... during the Second World War, AP reports. AP: "The two cities' mayors formally invited Obama on Tuesday to visit sometime before next May, but U.S. officials say it is highly unlikely he will travel to either city during his Nov. 12-13 visit to Tokyo. "An April speech Obama gave in Prague calling for a world free of nuclear weapons raised expectations, and winning the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month heightened them further. "'Many of the...
  • Will Obama Apologize for Hiroshima?

    Will Obama Apologize for Hiroshima? A knotty question -- he's due to visit the blast site come November and loves to say "I'm sorry." On the other hand, the twin Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings served as a legitimate conclusion to a war that Japan initiated -- with a recent poll showing that 61% of Americans support Truman's decision to employ the atomic arsenal, an approval rating that soars in the Greatest Generation demographic. Though Obama groveling at ground-zero would undoubtedly draw the ire of most Americans above the age of 65, one WWII vet in particular -- Morris Jepson one of the...

    Here is video of the Fox News Panel today on Fox News Sunday analyzing President Obama's handling of the firestorm created by his statement that the Cambridge, Massachusetts Police Department "acted stupidly" in arresting Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. Brit Hume bluntly said it was striking that "this President who travels the world apologizing for his country couldn't quite apologize for himself." Mara Liason thinks Obama went a long way to putting the issue to rest, but Juan Williams believes it has hurt Obama and will continue to hurt him as it stays in the news over the week...
