    Well too bad that Obama showed his true face and did not keep his promise.
    There is a great blog here about him and Armenian Genocide

      Frieda, you’re just such a class act, aren’t you? Don’t you have some tea bags to boil or something?

    Obama played Armenians for the fools … just watch Smantha Power (Obama’s advisore now) and the promise she said that Obama will deliver..

    she said we can trust Obama and he will be a different leader…what a fool we were…

    Lots more reaction on Global Voices Online:

    Yesterday marked the 94th anniversary of the massacre and deportation of as many as 1.5 million ethnic Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire. Already divided in their response to a speech delivered by US President Barack Obama in Turkey earlier this month, bloggers react to his statement marking the occasion, but which avoided directly referring to the WWI events as genocide.
    Many were already resigned to the inevitable breaking of a campaign promise designed to attract the Armenian-American vote. Indeed, others had already noted Turkey’s strategic importance to the West, and a potential breakthrough in efforts to normalize relations between Armenia and Turkey which would reportedly involve the latter coming to terms with its own past.
    This view is echoed by Yerevan-based American-Armenian analyst Richard Giragosian in a guest post on Post Global.
