Kudos, Jon, Kudos

(Note: the link below is incomplete. Follow this one to Comedy Central. However, you must manually select the video, which is entitled "Unsolved Histories.")

Kudos to the always witty and pithy Daily Show hosted by Jon Stewart, which recently ran a segment on Bush's "warning" to the House Committee not to pass a resolution recognizing the events of 1915 in Anatolia as genocide.

I still can't believe Turkey has the gall to "threaten" the U.S. Not only is the Cold War over, but Turkey has demonstrated, especially in 2003, that it is a less than reliable U.S. "ally," which is to gloss over completely its human rights abuses.

There was actually a 5 minute clip (which was taken down on youtube) where the segment continues with a senior "Armenianologist" saying that America will turn a blind eye to historic mass killings for political favors. For example, the Holocaust would be called the Halfocaust if Germany joined the coalition of the willing.
