Codename

Obama‘s Insulting U.K. Codename’Chalaque’ is Scotland Yard‘s codename for the president on his U.K. visit, but what does it mean when translated?


*******************************

Before President Obama’s arrival in London, The Daily Mail ran a story under the headline “Codename ‘smart alec’: British police label Obama with ‘mildly offensive’ Punjabi word for visit to U.K.” Scotland Yard says its computers randomly picked a codename for Obama, “chalaque,” for his visit to the country. But the newspaper quoted a Sikh community leader saying the name is often used to “denigrate” someone. Yahoo News then picked up the story, featuring it on its homepage under the headline: “Obama Code Named ‘smart alec’ in Britain.”

Do I really need a ‘title’ here?
