“Talaat gave me the impression of a man who wants to destroy all Armenians. He informed me that “The Union and Progress” Committee had studied this issue in great detail and that their policy had been officially adopted.

One of the noble friends of our people- the author of these words-is the US Ambassador to Ottoman Turkey in 1913-1916. A diplomat with a law degree was appointed ambassador to this country after Woodrow Wilson was elected President of the United States, a champion of a just solution to the Armenian issue.
