One the most important issues that has recently arisen in the US presidential election is the slumping economy and the negative effects of competition brought about by globalization. It may come as a surprise to some that polling shows both Democratic and Republican voters' primary concern is no longer the Iraq War and its negative results but rather the economy.

In my previous column I expressed my thoughts regarding the so-called Armenian Bill in the American Congress. I also shared my opinions on how an issue that is so historically central to Turkey was so easily manipulated by the internal politics of America.

What Happened Actually?

Just like it happened in 2000 during Bill Clinton’s tenure, the Armenian genocide resolution was adopted by a sub-committee, but was taken back before being put to a vote of the full congress. I would like to answer the question of, ‘what happened for the resolution to disappear so suddenly, just when the number of members of congress, who supported it, had reached the level of 230 something, and it looked certain that it would be adopted?’ by looking at what happened behind the scenes.
