The Daily Show: On The Armenian Genocide

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

Jon Stewart and the gang look at this week's refusal by President Bush to sign a non-binding resolution condemning the Turks for the Armenian genocide during World War I, ostensibly to not insult a key ally in the Middle East.

MANDVI: Jon, I think the message here is clear: you help us here on the War on Terror, we'll see what we can do on your past.

STEWART: So do countries go for this, Aasif?

MANDVI: Yeah, they do. It's not a bad deal, actually. When Spain joined the coalition, they were able to get their Inquisition downgraded to a casual Q&A.
