60 Minutes did a segment on the Armenian Genocide last night.
Turkey still officially denies, vehemently, that any such genocide tok place. The US still has not recognized the genocide, because of pressure from Turkey. Obama had promised that he would work to get it recognized, but quickly went back on his word once elected.
If the US recognizes the genocide it will probably cause problems with Turkey. At the moment a lot of the materiel used in the "War on Terror" is being transported through Turkey. So, is US policy on this simply prudent, or is it cowardly and immoral?
