What Lies Beneath: President Biden’s Deceptive Acknowledgment of the Armenian Genocide

  President Biden’s April 24 statement acknowledging the Armenian Genocide (1915–1923+) carried out by Turkey was welcome but flawed.  Indeed, “Turkey” appears nowhere in the document.  Moreover, the State Department swiftly undermined Biden’s virtuous-sounding words. American acknowledgment of the Armenian Genocide isn’t even new.  The U.S. House has passed several resolutions on the Genocide.   And a nearly unanimous Congress did[Read More…]
