Worse than Omar's flip-flopping is this:

“There’s no denying that horrific atrocities were committed against the Armenian people by the Ottoman Empire in the midst of the confusion and carnage of the First World War,” he said in a statement to The Hill.
Yeah, things kinda got confused and muddled up there for awhile, so the Turks didn't realize they were wiping out the Armenians.
Just don't use the "g" word, it upsets folks.
