I would think it an honor that the name of Geronimo, a warrior and a leader, was used as part of the name of the mission to remove a terrorist.

Yeah, and it would have been a real honor if we called Sadamn Insane Code Name Abraham Lincoln? Or Hitler/Eichmann/Mengela Code Names George Washington/Thomas Jefferson/Ben Franklin?

GERONIMO was not the code name for Osama. That was the code for a successful mission. JACKPOT was the code name for finding the terrorist. Get your heads out of your tea-pee.
