/PanARMENIAN.Net/ On July 18 Turkey's multi-million dollar lobbyist Bob Livingston posted an eight-minute diatribe on the Capitol Hill Broadcasting Network website, which denies the Armenian Genocide. This video is an effort to block congressional adoption of the H.Res.106
/ S.Res.106, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) reports.

Less than twelve hours after Bob Livingston's genocide denial video was posted, the ANCA issued a point by point video rebuttal, which was distributed widely to congressional offices and policy makers throughout Washington, DC. Also in response to the Livingston attack, Armenian Genocide Resolution lead advocates, Representatives Adam Schiff, George Radanovich, Frank Pallone and Joe Knollenberg cosigned a July 18th letter to congressional colleagues discrediting
Livingston's denialist claims.

The letter reads as follows, "For the past seven years Mr. Livingston has been a paid lobbyist for Turkey, which has spent millions of dollars denying what the world knows to be true - that in the first decades of the last century a horrible genocide was committed against the Armenian people. The factual evidence supporting the Armenian Genocide is vast, and no effort to deny these facts - no matter the source of the denial - will ever change history." The letter went on to urge House members to joinover 220 of their colleagues in cosponsoring H.Res.106.
