Who's the fucking genius who came up with this bullshit! And what the fuck is wrong with PResident Obama for letting the operation proceed with such an insensitive, culturally insulting and downright racist code name for a commonly hated terrorist fugitive. Geronimo was a victim of terrorism inflicted on him and his people. Geronimo was one of the greatest anti terrorist warriors in history. He protected and fought for his people against a terrorist power for many years.
It is absolutely incomprehensible that the United States government, the perpetrator of the terror that he fought would turn around and label the worse terrorist of modern times after Geronimo. The government, the president and all involved who used or supported the use of this term should apologize immediately and with the greatest amount of humility they are capable of, but being insensitive, arrogant, dick headed politicians and generals, I doubt humility is even a possibility.
I try and be cool and not get upset. I try and understand that everyone is trying to do their best, but FUCK! Sometimes I just want to SLAP THE SHIT OUTTA SOMEBODY!
Indians say code name offensive but not surprising
By SUSAN MONTOYA BRYAN, Associated Press –
Geronimo was known as a legendary Apache warrior whose ability to walk without leaving footprints allowed him to evade thousands of Mexican and U.S. soldiers, much like Osama bin Laden evaded capture for the past decade.
But for Native Americans, there's an important difference: Geronimo was a hero — not a terrorist.
So to them, the U.S. military's use of the revered leader's moniker as a code name for bin Laden was appalling — a slap in the face that prompted statements of disapproval from tribal leaders, a flurry of angry comments on social network sites and a letter from the leader of Geronimo's tribe asking President Barack Obama to apologize.
