  1. Mr. Oskanian’s Interview.

    Dear Mr. Oskanian,

    Thank you for your valuable advice. It is very important to stress the fact that you have been a devoted public servant while you worked as a Foreign Minister during Kocharian's presidency. It is also understood that these were sensitive times for Armenia, especially our ongoing war with Azerbaijan.

    In a conversation I had with a few prominent international personalities,  they were very impressed with your knowledge and capabilities. Congratulations once again for your unfailing devotion and corrupt free public service.

    However, as you are a scholar of political science, it is expected, in the coming months or years, many of the former leaders including Kocharian would be charged with theft and enriching themselves at the expense of the poor people of Armenia.  As an important former cabinet minister, there is very little evidence you tried to do something to minimize the theft conducted by your boss.  As the legal proceedings unfold, it is very likely you might have to appear as a witness in Kocharian's "Grand Theft" trail.

    What would you say? You know, remaining silent while Kocharian was looting the country will be interpreted as collaboration and perhaps an accomplice. Please come clean on this matter by providing Armenians a convincing explanation.  
     

  2. Who cares what Oskanian has to say?

    Years ago at a public event, I asked Oskanian why Armenia did not cooperate more with Armenian Americans to accomplish things such as getting a Genocide resolution passed in Congress.

    I believe that Oskanian was FM at the time.

    He gave one of the most ridiculous answers I have ever heard.

    He said that when he goes to Washington, DC he does not know who to talk to because there is more than one Armenian lobbying organization.

    Here's what he said exactly with an exaggerated shrug of his shoulders: "Who do I talk to?"

    That's Oskanian for you.
