THE PLANK OCTOBER 3, 2007

Paging Mr. Gephardt!

This is big: For the first time a Congressional leader is saying the full House will vote on the Armenian genocide bill. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer expects the bill to pass the House sometime before Thanksgiving. Must be an interesting day over at the Turkish embassy.

P.S. Could this movement--to change a Turkish law which criminalizes insults to "Turkishness"--be related? Many genocide-resolution proponents cite it as evidence that Turkey can't honestly confront its own history.
