The ADL District Committee of Eastern US and Canada had appealed to President Barack Obama to finally make good on his pre election pledge and use the word “genocide” in a letter dated September 7, 2009.
Earlier this month, a reply arrived, signed by Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon. The letter does not directly address the points raised.
At right is the letter from Gordon, while below is the initial letter sent by the ADL to President Barack Obama:
Dear Mr. President,
Your election as the leader of the world’s most powerful nation on earth restored America’s credibility among nations and placed the country on the path of its Founding Fathers.
