another lie by Obama

""President Barack Obama on Wednesday called the mass killings of Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Turks in 1915 "one of the worst atrocities of the 20th century," but again broke a 2008 campaign promise to label the tragedy a "genocide." Doing so would have angered NATO ally Turkey." "The chairman of the Armenian National Committee of America, Aram Hamparian, denounced Obama's statement, accusing the president of bowing to Turkey's "gag rule" on the issue. "Our President's complicity in Turkey's denial of truth and its ongoing obstruction of justice will not derail our progress toward a truthful, fair, and comprehensive international resolution of Turkey's still unpunished crime against the Armenian nation," Hamparian said in a statement.""
