    Sorry to bump but I am confused about this a bit now as Obama clearly said last night in the 60 Mins interview that Geronimo was the codeword for if UBL was inside there. So maybe that was his codename afterall? Hell at this point I am not sure anymore

    That has always been my understanding of the administration's position. Of course everyone in DC likes to pretend to be in the know, and the media prints every snippet of gossip as if it's gospel after a huge story like this... but as far as I know, the whitehouse has always maintained that Geronimo was the codeword for OBL, since they still weren't 100% positive it would be him.

    Bin Laden, Geronimo link angers Native Americans - Yahoo! News

    Do you agree? Is an apology in order?

    (I admit, I'm especially curious what the liberals here think. )
    In your little, 'bait the liberals' OP, you forgot to mention your thoughts on the matter.

    Personally, as a writer, I'm offended they didn't come up with a better code word.

    *Waldo
    *Carmen
    *Hoffa
    *Agatha
    *Cooper
    *Dr. Gonzo

    Zeppo
    Anita Bath
    Anita Moorehead

    But what about them coming out saying he was codename jackpot and E for enemy? It really is not a good thing to send out all these mixed messages. And the media does not help trying to be first to say whatever. If media is first with crap facts you still suck even if you are first. lol..

    I wonder now if Obama will issue an apology to Native Americans. No getting around him saying it flat out on nat tv for the world to see.
