The idle ramblings of a Jack of some trades, Master of none

May 5, 2011


Did anyone stop to wonder why the operation to take out Osama Bin Laden was codenamed 'Geronimo'? In yet another example of the staggering ignorance (or indifference) of the US government, it is because Geronimo, the great Apache warrior, was another figure who eluded the US military for years.

Read this, and weep. Once again, native Americans are shown how little the majority of their countrymen care for them. [Via HNN.]

I think people are reading too much into the code name. (Then again, I'm not an Apache.)

"Geronimo" is also infinitely cooler than "Operation Odyssey Dawn".
