Madeleine Albright Is the Wrong Person to Be Our Authority on Genocide

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

When asked by Lesley Stahl on CBS's 60 Minutes, on 12 May 1996, in reference to genocidal sanctions against Iraq,

"We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?"

Madeleine Albright responded,

"I think this is a very hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it."

In addition, Albright, a Zionist Jew, was signatory to a letter to Nancy Pelosi, which urged Speaker of the House Pelosi to quash the Armenian Genocide Resolution before it could reach the House floor, which the Speaker has the power to do. See:

Albright trivialized the significance of the Armenian Genocide with respect to the prevention of genocide when speaking to the press as co-chair of the "Genocide Prevention Task Force". See:

Albright's parents feigned a conversion to Catholicism and hid the fact that they were Jews, much like the Doenmeh crypto-Jews of Turkey, who committed the Armenian Genocide.
