Today marks the 102nd anniversary of the start of the Armenian Genocide. And, after eight years of President Obama refusing to call it a genocide, Samantha Power, his ambassador to the U.N. is finally speaking up:

Poor Samantha. We’re sure that she and the rest of the administration had a very good reason for staying silent.

No, she can’t. Just know that she’s really, really sorry, you guys.

After all this time, Power’s apology indeed rings hollow. Unfortunately, it looks like those hoping for an American presidential administration to call the Armenian Genocide a genocide are going to have to continue to wait:

The Trump administration could learn a great deal from Ronald Reagan. Calling a genocide what it is would be a good start.
