Geronimo To Sue Obama

from ABC News

Geronimo's relatives sue to get skull back

Twenty descendants of Apache warrior chief Geronimo have filed suit in a US Federal Court in Washington asking that his spirit and remains be freed.

In around 1918, members of Yale University's Order of the Skull and Bones society, including George W Bush's grandfather, allegedly took Geronimo's skull and other bones and items buried with him from the warrior's tomb at Fort Sill.

"It's been 100 years since the death of my great-grandfather in 1909 - It's been 100 years of imprisonment," Geronimo's great-grandson Harlyn Geronimo said.

The suit names US President Barack Obama and Secretary of Defence Robert Gates among its defendants. In addition, the complaint cites as defendants army secretary Pete Geren, Yale University, and the Order of the Skull and Bones.

Mr Geronimo said he had written to George W Bush to ask that his great-grandfather's remains be returned to his Apache homeland for burial, but never got a reply.

An attempt to negotiate a settlement to this shameful issue with Jonathan Bush, President George H. W. Bush's brother, in NYC in 1986 ended without agreement, and the Skull and Bones Society lawyer Endicott P. Davison then blandly denied all, despite the existence of substantial physical evidence supplied by a "Bonesman" with a conscience. In the Bush world, truth is what you can get away with.

Prescott Bush graduated BA from Yale in 1917. He had enlisted in the Connecticut National Guard in 1916 and then attended US Army Officer training. He joined the army as a captain of field artillery, and in 1918 was posted to Fort Sill, Oklahoma. There, with fellow Skull and Bones members Neil Mallon, Ellery James and four other novice captain accomplices, he led a grave-robbing incident involving the remains of the famous Chiricahua Apache chief Geronimo, who had been buried at Fort Sill in 1909.

Geronimo's skull, elbow bone and some belongings were taken to the Tomb (Skull & Bones HQ) in New Haven, and are evidently still there, on display in a glass cage. Despite Apache grievance, law enforcement officers have never entered the Tomb to reclaim them, so powerful is the Skull and Bones in the legal and judicial worlds (most members in any case regard it as their duty to deceive outsiders to protect their secrets).
