mike honda takes on japan

Last week, the New York Times profiled Congressman Mike Honda and his efforts to push HR 121, a bipartisan resolution calling on th Japanese government to formally acknowledge and apologize for its role in the coercion of women into sex slavery during World War II: A Congressman Faces Foes in Japan as He Seeks an Apology. He comments on Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's recent visit to the White House, and his carefully calculated "apology" for Japans history with comfort women, which President Bush inexplicably "accepted." The apology, says Honda, was not Mr. Bush's to accept. No kidding.
