Congratulations, Congressman Honda!
Rep. Michael Honda, D-Calif., gives a thumbs-up and says thank you to his colleagues after legislation was passed by the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 26, 2007, expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the government of Japan should formally acknowledge, apologize and accept historical responsibility for its Imperial Armed Forces coercion of young women into sexual slavery, known to the world as "comfort women", during its colonial and wartime occupation of Asia and the Pacific Islands from the 1930s through the duration of World War II. Honda is the principal sponsor of the bill.
