Obama's promise

March 25, 2009

Re "Promises, promises," editorial, March 22

After 94 years, there seems to be a gleam of hope for the recognition of the Armenian genocide.

I sincerely ask President Obama to live up to his campaign promise by making an official presidential declaration that the mass killings of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks constituted nothing less than genocide.

Let's hope that at least for once, principle will prevail over politics. Had the Armenian genocide been recognized -- and not been put on the back burner for decades -- maybe the world would not have had to witness the likes of it in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and, today, in Darfur.
