Default All of the idiots are coming out of the woodwork

Seriously?

WASHINGTON — The top staffer for the Senate Indian Affairs Committee and a Native American tribe are objecting to the U.S. military's use of the code name "Geronimo" for Osama bin Laden during the raid that killed the al-Qaida leader.

After bin Laden was killed, the military sent a message back to the White House: "Geronimo EKIA" — enemy killed in action.

Considering who Geronimo was and what he did, it seems like a perfectly appropriate code name to me.

I wonder how many millions we are going to have to spend to have our government listen to the whining biotch. Pick up the phone Obama and tell them to shut their freekin mouth.

I'm sure Congress will want to launch a committee to look into this. Perhaps we can start a new bureau whose job it is to pick out politically correct names for military operations?

Don't get me wrong and think I think it was ok for Geronimo to rape and torture to death a bunch of basically helpless poor settlers, or for Osama to attack us repeatedly, but there is a little irony that Geronimo had some serious reasons to be pissed at white settlers ..... I'd think the neocons would be more pissed off than the native americans, lol

indeed, and they can hold up passing the FY2012 budget until they fully fund and populate this committee, whose jobs will be paid even if the rest of the government shuts down...oh wait, isn't that congress?

In their defense, OBL really was a giant POS.

Still, do we have verification that Osama was 'Geronimo'? From the National Congress of American Indians:

Quote:
“We join President Obama in reflecting on the sacrifices made by the members of our military to defend our great nation. When terrorists attacked on 9/11, it was an attack on our homeland that deeply affected tribal nations, along with our fellow citizens. Osama bin Laden was a shared enemy. Since 2001, 61 American Indians and Alaskan Natives have died defending our country in Afghanistan and Iraq. Close to 450 have been wounded,” said Jefferson Keel, President of NCAI, the oldest, largest and most representative American Indian and Alaska Native organization in the country.


“Let’s be very clear about what is important here; the successful removal of Osama bin Laden as a threat to the United States honors the sacrifice these Native warriors made for the United States and their people,” added Keel, an Army Veteran and the Lt. Governor of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma.
Quote:
“Our understanding is that bin Laden’s actual code name was ‘Jackpot’ and the operation name was ‘Geronimo’,” said Keel. “To associate a Native warrior with bin Laden is not an accurate reflection of history and it undermines the military service of Native people. It’s critical that military leaders and operational standards honor the service of those who protect our freedom.”
So OBL's code name was 'Jack Pot', it seems.

That's just as racist! A lot of Native Americans own casinos. How do you think this makes the winners feel? Well?!?!

They were going to use "Mission Accomplished" but Bush already claimed that one.

Rove would've had a better code name than Geronimo. I mean the parachute guys wore that out in WWII. Rove'd have something like "Just Revenge." Manly, macho something to get the blood boiling.

They should go ahead and call it Operation Honky.

They need to lighten the F up and F off.

It's bad enough they forced a bunch of colleges to give up their team names for a bunch of PC crap...

Maybe they should worry more about their own probs like how Fing corrupt their leadership is and the fact they steal most of the tribes cash and keep the majority of the people poor...

But yea lets fight over a word .... brilliant.
