President Barack Obama (R) receives flowers to give as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (L) looks on during U.S. President Obama's visit to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park on May 27, 2016 in Hiroshima, Japan.

At Hiroshima, Obama was silent on the question of American sacrifice, American valor, and American virtue, but eloquent on the issue of American guilt.
