President Joe Biden is expected to acknowledge that the World War I-era killing and deportation of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire was a genocide. It's a promise that's been made by past US presidents but never carried out. Host Marco Werman speaks to Thomas de Waal, a senior fellow at Carnegie Europe and author of “Great Catastrophe: Armenians and Turks in the Shadow of Genocide.”
