President Barack Obama continued his international apology tour for American deeds overseas, traveling to the Asian country of Laos to deliver a speech.

 

Obama acknowledged that the United States dropped more than two million tons of bombs in the country, intervening in the country’s civil war.

 

He sorrowfully noted that “villages and entire valleys were obliterated” as a result of the bombing, including the “ancient Plain of Jars.”
