33 years after the mass killings of Kurds in northern Iraq by Saddam Hussein's troops, survivors of the genocide long for closure

Let us be clear: The president has sided with authoritarian leaders of Turkey and Russia over our loyal allies and America’s own interests. His decision is a sickening betrayal both of the Kurds and his oath of office.
