But wait! Doesn't the White House say there would be no apology for the bombings?
That's right. The president's communications adviser
said that Mr Obama would "not revisit the decision to use the atomic bomb at the end of World War II. Instead, he will offer a forward-looking vision focused on our shared future".And just who is the president's communications adviser?
That's right: he's the fellow we have heard about recently, thanks to the New York Times. His name is Rhodes… Ben Rhodes…

forgive me for being so bold):
