A man who instinctively knows how to be inappropriate for any occasion, President Obama flew to Japan just before America mourns her war dead. Not just Japan, but Hiroshima, one of the two cities where America used the ultimate weapon to end World War II.
The world was forever changed here, but today the children of this city will go through their day in peace,” Mr. Obama said. “What a precious thing that is. It is worth protecting, and then extending to every child. That is a future we can choose, a future in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare but as the start of our own moral awakening.
Despite the fact that Obama acknowledged that Japan was not innocent, that doesn’t cover for the fact that he’s the first U.S. president to actually go to Hiroshima, and right before Memorial Day to add insult to injury. That he did it in the last year of his presidency is very, very telling.
