Obama 'Punts' Question on Justification of The Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima/Nagasaki

Pointing out that Obama Called for a "World Without Nuclear Weapons" a reporter asked Obama if the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified. Dropping the bombs was the right thing to do and it saved both Japanese and American lives. It may not be easy to say that standing on Japanese soil in front of a Japanese reporters and a Japanese audience, but it should have been said. I give Obama some credit for not apologizing for the bombings, but he should have gone the rest of the way.
