Apologies Not AcceptedWhy did it take the Japanese foreign minister (of all people) to advise our president that his effort was boneheaded? Doesn't Obama surround himself with anyone with a lick of sense? What was Hillary's role in this? Did she think apologizing for the events that followed the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor a wise thing to do? Have they no shame?
Investor's Business Daily editorial
Leaked cables show Japan nixed a presidential apology to Hiroshima and Nagasaki for using nukes to end the overseas contingency operation known as World War II. Will the next president apologize for the current one?
It's yet another part of the world apology tour that began with Obama taking the oath of office to protect and defend the United States and its Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, something he immediately felt sorry for.
A heretofore secret cable dated Sept. 3, 2009, was recently released by WikiLeaks. Sent to Secretary of State Clinton, it reported Japan's Vice Foreign Minister Mitoji Yabunaka telling U.S. Ambassador John Roos that "the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima to apologize for the atomic bombing during World War II is a 'nonstarter.'"

This is unimaginable. And yet it fits in with everything else we now know about Reverend Wright's star pupil.
What next? An apology for our causing 9/11?
