U.S. Lawmakers Defect from Genocide Resolution

Turkey continues to voice its opposition to a resolution circulating through the U.S. House. The resolution would recognize the 1915 mass killing of more than a million Armenians as genocide.

Now that the Turkish government has threatened to curtail military ties with the U.S., nearly a dozen lawmakers have withdrawn their support of the controversial resolution.

U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, a Democrat from Georgia, talks with Melissa Block about why he changed his mind.
