Obviously, to equate Geronimo with Osama bin Laden is an unpardonable slander of Native America and its most famous leader in history. Indeed, amid the celebration of the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, its use of the name of the famous 19th century Chiricahua Apache leader has reignited the controversy about racist Native-American stereotypes. The transmission meant, "Geronimo, enemy killed in action.
At issue is whether the name Geronimo was used as code for bin Laden or the act of capturing or killing bin Laden, as the Obama administration has indicated, and whether either was appropriate.

According to conspiracy theorists, the 43rd president's grandfather, Prescott Bush, once joined with fellow members of the elite Yale University secret society Skull and Bones to rob Geronimo's grave. Now, in the wake of the bin Laden mission, the name "Geronimo" is making waves once again.
