Hi George; Bostom relies heavily on the oft-quoted Ambassador Henry Morgenthau, who stated in correspondence with President Wilson that he intended to uncover or manufacture news that would goad the U.S. into joining the war (sounds familiar?). Morgenthau relied on Armenians; his primary aid, translator and confidant was Arshag Schmavonian, his secretary was Hagop Andonian. Morgenthau professed that the Turks were an inferior race. In contrast, the post-war writings of Admiral Mark L. Bristol, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Turkey, wrote: "[R]eports are being freely circulated in the [U.S.] that the Turks massacred thousands of Armenians in the Caucasus. Such reports are repeated so many times it makes my blood boil. ..reports from Yarrow and our own American people ...show absolutely that such Armenian reports are absolutely false. ...is an outrage and is certainly doing the Armenians more harm than good.... Why not tell the truth about the Armenians in ever way?" Exactly!
