Offered Without Comment...

The Japanese government urged the Obama administration in 2009 not to apologize for the American nuclear attack on Hiroshima during World War II, according to a secret diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks last month.

Vice Foreign Minister Mitoji Yabunaka told American diplomats ahead of a presidential trip to Japan that an American apology would be a "non-starter" and that a simple visit to Hiroshima -- "without fanfare" -- would be sufficiently symbolic.


Obama had no plans to apologize for Hiroshima, a senior White House official told ABC News Wednesday.
