Breaking News: NATO Alliance Could Be Imperiled

Two key countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization -- because of a dispute between them -- may be endangering the alliance.

France's National Assembly (lower house of parliament) passed a draft law to make it illegal to deny genocide; the specific target appearing to be Turkey's denial of the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks.
