When the Obama administration sent 24 Navy SEALs into Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan, “Geronimo” was the code name for the mission. It was also the code the SEALs used to alert their commanders that they identified their target; and finally “Geronimo-E KIA” was the coded message to confirm that they had killed Bin Laden.
Tonight, Mike and Mark speak with Professor Jim Craven / Omahkohkiaaiipooyii (Big Bear Speaks), a life-long Native American activist, a Professor of Economics at Clark College, Tsinghua University in Beijing and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences about the Obama Administration’s use of “Geronimo” as a code word for Osama Bin Laden, and its’ historical significance.
Professor Craven also talks about cultural differences between China and the U.S., their attitudes towards each other, and the issues that keep the two in a very unsteady balance.
Then: When ex-marine Jose Guerena, a two-tour veteran of Iraq, was shot 60 times on May 5th by an Arizona SWAT team, the Pima County Sheriffs Department immediately made the Search Warrant for marijuana that led to the slaughter of this young man a “secret.” We’ll explore the questions about this warrant that mainstream media is afraid to ask.
