Just about every presidential candidate in memory has promised the Armenian Americans recognition of the genocide. Genocide is a word invented to describe the horrifc event which happended to the Armenians (by some Jewish guy between the wars if I recall correctly). The names of the promise breakers include Bush 41, Bill Clinton and GWB. Also similar resolution was passed back in 1984 but Reagan would not sign it.

Washington, DC -- In a powerfully worded letter to two of his leading Armenian American supporters, Republican presidential hopeful Texas Governor George Bush acknowledged the Armenian Genocide, called on Americans to join with him in remembering the crime committed against the Armenian people, and pledged as President to ensure that the United States properly recognizes this terrible atrocity, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

What language would it take to recognize the genocide? Perhaps a Resolution that included the sentence, "Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That April 24, 1975, is hereby designated as "National Day of Remembrance of Man's Inhumanity to Man", and the President of the United States is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe such day as a day of remembrance for all the victims of genocide, especially those of Armenian ancestry who succumbed to the genocide perpetrated in 1915, and in whose memory this date is commemorated by all Armenians and their friends throughout the world."

This was written and passed as a resolution by the House and Senate in 1975. Doesn't this suffice as a proclamation to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide?
