It’s the 68th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Should Obama have used it as an opportunity to talk about Iran or China’s nuclear capabilities?

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and host Matt Miller are joined on this week’s “Left, Right & Center” by Matthew Continetti, opinion editor of The Weekly Standard, who offers the conservative view.
