In Hiroshima, Obama and Abe Should Acknowledge Their Country's Wrongdoing
On May 27, as the first sitting president of the United States, Barack Obama, will visit Hiroshima, the city that his country attacked with an atomic bomb on August 6, 1945.
Obama neither has a plan to apologize for the bombing nor to go back to the debate on the decision to drop the bomb. He has no plan to make a significant speech in Hiroshima comparable to his "Prague Speech" of April 5, 2009. There is not a plan yet for him to meet with Hibakusha (atomic-bomb victims).
