Looks as if America’s Ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, will be making a special diplomatic visit to Okinawa to make an official apology to the people of Okinawa and Okinawa’s Governor Takeshi Onaga, for the murder of Rina Shimabukuro by Kenneth Franklin (Gadson) Shinzato. Governor Takeshi Onaga is extremely upset and has requested a meeting with US President Obama at the G7 meeting when Obama visits Japan. Of all events to have happen while Caroline Kennedy is the US Ambassador to Japan and US President Obama is set to visit Japan for the G7 meeting.

Governor Takeshi Onaga came to Tokyo today for a special meeting with Japan’s Prime Minster Shinzo Abe to seek an audience with Obama. Well, is the U.S. and the USMC humiliated enough yet? Imagine being the three star Marine Corps general meeting with Japanese government officials to apologize for the ex-marine now working as a civilian for the US military who was arrested for the murder of Shimabukuro?

ケネディ米大使、沖縄訪問へ=死体遺棄事件で謝罪か

在日米大使館関係者は23日、ケネディ大使が沖縄県を訪問する方向で調整していることを明らかにした。訪問の明確な時期については明かさなかったが「大使と沖縄県双方にとっていつがいいかを検討している」と述べた。ケネディ大使の訪問は、同県の女性死体遺棄事件で米軍属の男が逮捕されて以来初めて。

沖縄県では19日、米軍所属のシンザト・ケネフ・フランクリン容疑者(32)が死体遺棄容疑で逮捕された。翁長雄志知事は23日に行われた安倍晋三首相との会談で「大統領と直接話をしたい」と訴えており、ケネディ大使は事件について知事に謝罪し、今後の対応を協議する可能性がある。
