Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso speaks to reporters at the ministry in Tokyo Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013. Aso has retracted a comment he made Monday, July 29 in Tokyo suggesting Japan should follow the Nazi example of how to change the country’s constitution, following complaints from neighboring countries and human rights activists. Aso drew outrage for saying Japan should learn from how the Nazi party stealthily changed Germany’s constitution before World War II before anyone realized it.
