By your logic Roosevelt should have apologized to the Japanese for letting our ships get under their bombs. There are times when an apology is dangerous. Many nations that the President visited quietly support terrorism and those terrorist groups look for any sign of weakness. And President Obama showed them just that - weakness. Most intelligence estimates were that the Presidents tour did nothing to enhance the standing of our nation in the Middle East. 9/11/12, the Times Square Bomber, and Major Nadal, (to name a few) show us that it may have made things worse.
