Former UN Ambassador Apologizes For Failing To Recognize The Armenian Genocide

Monday was 102nd anniversary of the Armenian genocide. While President Donald Trump stuck with what has sadly become custom and neglected to actually use the word "genocide" in his statement about the atrocity, a former Obama official expressed remorse that she hadn't done enough to properly recognize the horrors.

Samantha Power, the former United Nations ambassador from 2013 until 2017, tweeted on Monday that she was "very sorry" that the Obama administration did not recognize the Armenian genocide.

Some praised Power for having a moment of regret, but said that her words were pretty hollow given that she had four years to actually make a statement and did not.
