More taqiyya from the Mohammaden president. Refraining from the true meaning of the word GENOCIDE, and it didn't happen at the end of the war either. Perhaps he or one his laughable incompetents should read Armenian Golgotha - a must-read post here. (Oh, it tells the truth, that's right. Can't tell the truth and hurt Muslim feelings...)
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama on Friday refrained from branding the massacre of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians in Turkey a "genocide," breaking a campaign promise while contending his views about the 20th century slaughter had not changed. The phrasing of Obama's written statement attracted heightened scrutiny because of the sensitivity of the issue and because the two countries are nearing a historic reconciliation after years of tension. The Obama administration is wary of disturbing that settlement.
Marking the grim anniversary of the start of the killings, the president referred to them as "one of the great atrocities of the 20th century."
Riffing Bush here.
"I have consistently stated my own view of what occurred in 1915, and my view of that history has not changed," Obama said. "My interest remains the achievement of a full, frank and just acknowledgment of the facts."
What a full of shitnik.
"The best way to advance that goal right now," Obama said, "is for the Armenian and Turkish people to address the facts of the past as a part of their efforts to move forward."
How can you address the facts when you refuse the facts?
"I strongly support efforts by the Turkish and Armenian people to work through this painful history in a way that is honest, open, and constructive," he said.
Yeah, they can't do that if their genocide is denied.
Why is everyone covering up this atrocity? Because it was Muslims?
