Oh, come on

So, there are Indians who are upset because the operational codename for the attack on Bin Laden's compound was Operation Geronimo. It is being said that the name makes an equivalence between the Apache warrior and Osama bin Laden.

Me, I thought they called it that after the shout soldiers give when they jump out of airplanes. As an airborne attack by a very gung-ho kind of team, I thought the name was meant to show their instant readiness to do or die.

I guess the Scriptures are shown to be right again: Unto the pure, all things are pure. (Although, in my case, maybe it's just, "unto the oblivious," but whatever.)
