A common theme that runs through President Obama's statements is the idea the United States must atone for its past policies, whether it is America's application of the war against Islamist terrorism or its overall foreign policy.
At the core of this message is the concept that the U.S. is a flawed nation that must seek redemption by apologizing for its past "sins."
On several occasions, President Obama has sought to apologize for the actions of his own country when addressing a foreign audience -- including seven of the 10 apologies listed below.
The President has already apologized for his country to nearly 3 billion people across Europe, the Muslim world, and the Americas.
Members of the formerly mainstream media argue that the president has not been involved in anything like an "apology tour." For more on this, and the difficulties of holding such a position, see "Apology Tour Didn't Happen, Media Say."
