    Today, President Obama spoke in Burma – or as he termed it, Myanmar, despite official US practice to call the country Burma – and repeatedly botched the name of the country’s famed Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, instead calling her Aung YAN Suu Kyi.

She said Thein Sein told her during a private 45-minute meeting that he "hopes to build on" a flurry of political overhauls...
