Armenian Bloggers Hail Power Return
While most people know Samantha Power as an Obama adviser who has called Hillary Clinton a â€œmonster,â€ many genocide awareness and prevention activists consider the Harvard professor a hope they can believe in. The Associated Press has noticed that Power, who officially resigned from Obamaâ€™s campaign during the Democratic primaries, is on US President-elect Obamaâ€™s transition team. This news has encouraged several Armenian bloggers who now feel assured that the author of â€œA Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocideâ€ (2002) will remind President-elect Barack Obama to keep his promise of officially recognizing the WWI Armenian Genocide committed by Ottoman Turks.
