Fox News: Osama's Code Name Not Geronimo
By R. Cort Kirkwood
According to Fox News, the name of the famous Chiracahua Apache was not the code name for Osama. The news emerges in a long, dramatic story that details the raid. The mission to kill the world's most wanted man, Fox reports, nearly failed.
But more importantly for Indians, the memory of Geronimo was not besmirched.

And the aforementioned:
Wow again. Every reference of Kirkwood's paints Indians as warlike. They beat their tom-toms, go off the reservation, do a war dance and war cry, send up smoke signals to rally others to war, and finally go hunting scalps. And they need a peace treaty to pacify them. Could it be any clearer that Kirkwood thinks Indians are savages?
