16. He has never suggested Srebrenica was not a massacre.
And you are right, he has compared it other war crimes.

As for the term genocide, im not sure it really applies to either scenario, an individual battle or massacre itself really cant qualify as genocide, it could be a part of genocide, but I think this gets us off track.

The important issue here is that the interviewer has completely fabricated the Srebrenica debate.
