US Lawmaker Says US Must Officially Recognize the Armenian Genocide

US Rep. Judge Ted Poe called on the U.S. government to official recognize the Armenian Genocide.

American National Committee of Armenia – ANCA-DC tweeted about US Rep. Judge Ted Poe giving a speech that condemns the Armenian Genocide and calls for the U.S. government to officially recognize it. In his speech he says:

“More than a century ago one of the most horrific genocides in history took place as the world was fixated on the Great war raging in Europe. The Ottoman Empire and its successor state – the modern Republic of Turkey, have always denied the atrocities they committed against the Armenian people. For too long our own government has played along with Turkey. We have allowed politics to blind us from the mass murder of 1.5 million innocent Armenians by the Ottoman Turks.
