Obama denies the Holocaust
In 1915, the Young Turks Regime carried out a planned mass murder of Christians. The majority of the victims were Armenians. However, Greeks, Assyrians, and others were also killed.
During his campaign for presidency, Obama pledged to recognize the Armenian Holocaust. Now at the request of the Turkish Government, Obama denied the Armenian Holocaust on the 100th anniversary of the planned genocide.
Two years ago, the US Congress sided with the government of Turkey and the Anti-Defamation League and refused to pass a resolution recognizing the Armenian Holocaust.
