Will Obama Apologize for Truman’s Decision to Drop the Bomb in WWII?

NRO  "On April 10, John Kerry became the highest-ranking U.S. official ever to visit the site where the atomic bomb that ended World War Two was dropped. The talk is now that Barack Obama might do the same thing during his official visit to Japan next month. 

"Let’s hope this isn’t another example of Obama’s extended Apology Tour. Obama tried to visit Hiroshima in 2009 to plead forgiveness for ending a war that, had it dragged on, would have cost Japan many more lives than the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs combined. But the Japanese government firmly nixed the idea, calling it a “non-starter.” Tokyo knew that this kind of masochistic stunt would only encourage anti-nuclear demonstrators and the lefties who oppose any military cooperation with the United States. 

"This time, we are told, an Obama visit will be approved by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. And instead of apologizing, Obama apparently plans to mention North Korea and China as looming problems in the region." . . .
