Obama's UN envoy apologizes for not recognizing Armenian mass killings as genocide


It may not be enough, but it's something:

Former Obama UN Ambassador Samantha Power on Monday apologized for not using the term "genocide" to describe the Ottoman Turks' massacre of Armenians.

"I am very sorry that, during our time in office, we in the Obama administration did not recognize the #Armenian Genocide," Power said in a series of tweets.

Power, who served as Obama's UN ambassador from 2013 to 2017, blamed "ongoing Turkish denial" for leaving an "open wound."

"Almost every Armenian-American family was touched in some way by the genocide," Power said.
