    Well-known Turkish historian Professor Turkkaya Ataov has brought forth two documents which he claims will undermine Armenian claims of genocide earlier in the century. The documents, say Professor Ataov, prove that up to 200,000 Armenians fought with allied troops against the Turkish army during the first World War. According to Ataov, "if I revealed the name of these documents, the Armenians would either destroy them or have them destroyed."

    Noting the extremely high numbers of Armenian soldiers admitted to in these documents, Professor Ataov says "200 thousand is a serious number. It is atleast 65 thousand more than the American soldiers found in Iraq today."
    Speaking about where he found the documents, Ataov said he had come across them in foreign libraries and archives. The professor noted that he could not reveal the exact locations where he came across the documents, as he feared Armenian sources would attempt to destroy them.
