Score one (and only one) for the Biden* junta.
The United States recognizes the 1915 massacre of as many as 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire as genocide, President Joe Biden said in a statement on Saturday. ...
Yes, it was Armenians who were slaughtered.
You could call it 'mass martyrdom' too.
By the way, THIS is the error of the Bush-the-Dumber Administration. They always thought in terms of 'nationality,' never in terms of 'religion' in the Middle East. That's because Bush-the-Dumber and his NeoCon pals were being PC, and remain mostly PC today.
As to 'why', your guess is as good as mine.
