"The Armenian Reporter" news site has repeatedly and forcefully condemned what it mockingly calls "amnesia" on the part of Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who as senators co-sponsored a resolution calling for the use of the term "genocide" when discussing the tragedy.
On Oct. 2, 2008, the paper published a letter from then-candidate Obama in which he trumpeted "my firmly held conviction that the Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion, or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence."
"The facts are undeniable. An official policy that calls on diplomats to distort the historical facts is an untenable policy," Obama wrote. "As President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide."
The chairman of the Armenian National Committee of America, Ken Hachikian, issued a blistering denunciation of Obama's latest statement, saying it made "a stark lie" out of his 2008 campaign pledge and charged it "represents the very opposite of the principled and honest change he promised to Armenian Americans and to all the citizens of our nation."
Isn’t it interesting that Barack Obama made promises to this “subset group” of Americans? Yet, one of his first official visits as president of the United States was to Turkey. Prime Minister Erdogan has since become a confidant and close personal friend of our so-called president. Obama named him one of his top five international friends.
Prime Minister Erdogan is a notorious Islamist and Jew hater. As they say, birds of a feather flock together.
