Geronimo's Headdress at bin Laden EKIA

The undoctored White House photo of the Osama bin Laden situation room shows a picture of Geronimo holding an Indian headdress. 

The Independent reported:

It was on Sunday afternoon that the drama of at last netting “Geronimo” – the code name given to Bin Laden for the operation – began. Obama, Clinton, Gates, Donilon, Brennan and a few others huddled in the White House Situation Room. A video and audio link connected them to Leon Panetta, the CIA director in Langley, Virginia, who would talk them through what was going on in Pakistan in real time, beginning with the helicopters carrying the Seals clattering through the night sky and arriving above their target. 

“They’ve reached the target,” Panetta began, according to one version reported by the New York Times. Minutes later, he added: “We have a visual on Geronimo.” Finally, they heard Panetta say: “Geronimo EKIA (enemy killed in action).” Still nobody said anything. Then Obama looked up and said simply, “We got him”.
This isn't the first time Obama stiffed Native Americans from a cultural perspective.  Nor is it the first time the feds took an intense interest in Geronimo's headdress.  Get the picture?

Birds of a feather flock together.  Tom Donilon, Bob Gates ...
