Wikileaks Reveals Hillary Clinton Censored Her Team’s Affirmation of the Armenian Genocide
Wikileaks reveals Hillary Clinton censored her team when discussing how to address the Armenian Genocide back in 2015. Hillary’s team was careful not to use the term ‘genocide’.
Via Armenian Weekly:
On April 19, 2015, Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy adviser, sent an email to a half dozen senior campaign staffers, including Chairman John Podesta, asking if they should issue a statement on the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. Sullivan also wanted to know if Clinton would use the term “genocide” as she did as Senator and presidential candidate eight years ago, or will she avoid that term as she did as Secretary of State? Sullivan pointed out that “the White House studiously avoided using ‘genocide’ so far,” and would probably continue to do so. Sullivan wondered whether Clinton’s campaign should proactively issue a statement on the Armenian Genocide or wait until asked to do so by “Armenian groups.” Sullivan ended his email by acknowledging that the Armenian Genocide issue “matters enormously to Armenian-Americans.” Within hours, Podesta suggested that a quotation from Pope Francis acknowledging the Armenian Genocide be included in the genocide statement which ultimately the Clinton Campaign decided not to issue.
Founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange also investigated the Armenian Genocide and confirmed that Turkey is trying to cover it it up. Read the cables of the from the Armenian Genocide and Ottoman archives here.
Candidate Obama promised the Armenians that he would recognize the Armenian Genocide. Once he was elected, he completely abandoned the Armenian community and ignored questions regarding his campaign promise. Hillary Clinton also didn’t use the term ‘genocide’ as Secretary of State under Obama. This is shameful. It is time for the U.S. to officially recognize what this was, a Genocide.
