GWB: World Leader or Summer Footwear?

This video was shot hours before the House Foreign Affairs Committee voted on a resolution to officially recognize the Armenian genocide. Now here's what GW said in a letter to the Armenian National Committee during his 2000 campaign:

"The Armenians were subjected to a genocidal campaign that defies comprehension and commands all decent people to remember and acknowledge the facts and lessons of an awful crime... If elected president, I would ensure that our nation properly recognizes the tragic suffering of the Armenian people."

What were they calling that a couple years ago again? Oh right, a flip-flop! Incidentally, the HFAC passed the resolution, which moves it to the House of Representatives for a vote next month.

A special shout out to Amy, Juan and the rest of the crew at Democracy Now! on this one.
