Once this man was a household name, frequently featured on the front pages of our nationÂ’s newspapers and spoken from the mouths of reporters on the nightly news. That man is Ngo Dinh Diem, president of the Republic of Vietnam (better known as South Vietnam) from 1955...

    Thank you, President George W. Bush, for correcting history and making a long overdue apology for one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's tragic mistakes. Speaking in Latvia on May 7, Bush repudiated "the agreement at Yalta" by which powerful governments negotiated away the freedom of small nations. Bush accurately blamed Yalta for "the captivity of millions in Central and Eastern Europe" and said it "will be remembered as one of the greatest wrongs of history." This admission has been 50 years coming, and Bush's words assure that "the legacy of Yalta was finally buried, once and for all." It was...
