Obama, Japanese PM speak at Pearl Harbor

00:48
On Tuesday, U.S. President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made a historic pilgrimage to Pearl Harbor in Hawaii where a devastating surprise attack by Japan on United States soil sent America marching into World War II over 75 years ago. In a speech, Abe said, "As the prime minister of Japan, I offer my sincere and everlasting condolences to the souls of those who lost their lives here, as well as to the spirits of all the brave men and women whose lives were taken by a war that commenced in this very place." In his own speech, Obama called the harbor a sacred place and said that "even the deepest wounds of war can give way to friendship and lasting peace."
