U.S. President Barack Obama delivers a speech at the National Convention Center in Hanoi, VietnamBy Matt Spetalnick and Martin Petty HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama chided Vietnam on political freedoms on Tuesday after critics of the communist-run government were prevented from meeting him in Hanoi, a discordant note on a trip otherwise steeped in words of amity between the former foes. Tens of thousands turned out to welcome Obama on the second leg of his visit, to Ho Chi Minh City, which was called Saigon until North Vietnamese tanks rolled into the city in April 1975 to bring U.S.-backed South Vietnam under communist rule. Many in the crowd that lined the streets chanted "Obama, Obama" as his motorcade arrived to visit the century-old Jade Emperor Pagoda.
