I'm not sure if this story was discussed here already but I couldn't find it so.... http://conservativebyte.com/2011/10/obama-wanted-to-apologize-for-hiroshima-nagasaki-japan-said-no/ Obama wanted to apologize for Hiroshima, Nagasaki; Japan said noPosted on October 12, 2011 by Conservative Byte 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? The obsessive need of this president to apologize for American exceptionalism and our defense of freedom continued recently when Barack Obama’s State Department (run by Hillary Clinton) contacted the family of al-Qaida propagandist and recruiter Samir Khan to “express its condolences” to his family. Khan, a right-hand man to Anwar al-Awlaki, was killed along with Awlaki in an airstrike in Yemen on Sept. 30. We apologized for killing a terrorist before he could help kill any more of us.
