THE ONE, in campaign mode, promised Armenian Americans that he would commemorate and honor their ancestors and family members slaughtered by Turks ninety-five years ago last week. He would do this by using the word "genocide", which is uncontroversially appropriate and historically accurate.
I shared with Secretary Rice 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. As a senator, I strongly support passage of the Armenian Genocide Resolution (H.Res.106 and S.Res.106), and as President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.The exit question is: Will any Americans of Armenian descent be chumped again by BHO?
