「レーガン大統領が日系人の強制収容を謝罪したような日本政府の表明だ」と私が要約しました部分は、原文のAP記事では次のようになっています。

Supporters of Honda's nonbinding resolution want an apology similar to the one the U.S. government gave to Japanese-Americans, including Honda as a child, forced into internment camps during World War II. That apology was approved by the Congress and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1988.

【拙訳】
ホンダ非拘束決議案の支持者たちが求めているのは、米国政府が、子供だったホンダ氏を含む日系アメリカ人に対して行ったと同様の謝罪だ。日系アメリカ人は第二次大戦中強制的に収容キャンプに入らされた。その謝罪とは、1988年に連邦議会で承認され、ロナルド・レーガン大統領のサインによって立法化されたものである。

U.S. lawmaker calls for investigation of post-WWII brothels for U.S. troops in Japan

The Associated PressPublished: May 3, 2007
 

WASHINGTON: A U.S. lawmaker said Thursday he wants a closer look at reports that American authorities allowed the operation of an official brothel system for GIs occupying Japan in the aftermath of World War II.


Democratic Rep. Mike Honda, sponsor of a resolution urging Japan to apologize formally for coercing thousands of Asian women into sexual slavery as the Imperial Japanese during the war, said he has asked the Congressional Research Service to look into allegations of brothels set up for American soldiers after Japan's surrender in 1945.


Honda rejected comparisons between the actions of the Japanese during the war and the U.S. occupation forces. He said the Japanese comfort women system was set up and sanctioned by the Japanese government and armed forces.


"It's different," he said. "This is the military of the imperial government, the imperial military's policy, in capturing, coercing and kidnapping girls and women for the purpose of sexual slavery."


Honda said it was important to find out what role the U.S. military played in the postwar system.


An Associated Press review of historical documents and records shows that American authorities permitted an official brothel system to operate despite internal reports that women were being coerced into prostitution.

Tens of thousands of women were employed to provide cheap sex to American troops until the spring of 1946, when Gen. Douglas MacArthur shut down the system, documents show.


There is no clear evidence that non- Japanese comfort women were imported to Japan as part of the program.


Supporters of Honda's nonbinding resolution want an apology similar to the one the U.S. government gave to Japanese-

Americans, including Honda as a child, forced into internment camps during World War II. That apology was approved by the Congress and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1988.
