President Obama has insulted the memory of the nearly 60,000 Americans who died in Vietnam. Last week, Mr. Obama met with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang.
President Obama must seriously and robustly defend the Vietnamese people in their heroic struggle against an ever-worsening dictatorship led by President Truong Tan Sang.
President Truong Tan Sang of Vietnam visits the White House on Thursday, and this is a providential occasion for President Obama to speak up for religious liberty.
President Obama said he had a "very candid conversation" on human rights Thursday with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang at the White House, and the leader of the Southeast Asian nation said the two "still have differences on the issue."
President Obama is under pressure from members of Congress, human rights groups and union leaders to demand an end to the suppression of human rights in Vietnam when he meets with the leader of the Southeast Asian nation at the White House on Thursday.
On Thursday evening, Mr. Sang told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that his government also is committed to bringing the partnership to a conclusion by the end of this year.
Asia pivot, Mr. Sang said, "This policy proceeds from the interests of the United States. ... We hope that this policy will help contribute to ensuring peace, stability, cooperation and development, and continue to promote dynamism in the Asia Pacific."
