Obama Expresses Regret To Poland

For a president who kicked off his reign with a world-wide apology tour, it sure took him long enough to show contrition to Poland.  Maybe it’s because he was the one who made the mistake this time:

President Barack Obama has written a letter to the Polish president expressing “regret” for an inadvertent verbal gaffe that caused a storm of controversy in Poland this week.

“In referring to `a Polish death camp’ rather than `a Nazi death camp in German-occupied Poland,’ I inadvertently used a phrase that has caused many Poles anguish over the years and that Poland has rightly campaigned to eliminate from public discourse around the world,” Obama wrote. “I regret the error and agree that this moment is an opportunity to ensure that this and future generations know the truth.”

If only he would write a similar letter about the missile shield he pulled out from under them.
