Holocaust denial...again!

AP headlines: "Bush opposes Armenian genocide measure." But that's not the holocaust denial I wanted to mention, after all, that was reported last week. No, it's AP itself. Here's the lead paragraph of their article:
President Bush urged Congress to reject legislation Wednesday that would say it was a genocide when thousands of Armenians were killed around the time of World War I.
Thousands? THOUSANDS? A full 17 paragraphs later, AP finally gets around to this:
At issue is the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I.
1.5 million is not thousands!! And the number of Iraqis killed thanks to the U.S. invasion of their country, not to mention the number killed during the decade of U.S./U.K. ("U.N.") sanctions is also not "thousands" or even "tens of thousands."
