  • American on solo mission to kill UBL.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100615/...n_laden_hunter

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan An American armed with a pistol and a 40-inch (102-centimeter) sword was detained in northern Pakistan and told investigators he was on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden, a police officer said Tuesday.

    The man, identified as 52-year-old Californian construction worker Gary Brooks Faulkner, said he wanted to cross over into the nearby Afghan province of Nuristan because he had "heard bin Laden was living there", according to officer Mumtaz Ahmad Khan.

    He was picked up in a forest in the Chitral region late on Sunday, he said.

    "We initially laughed when he told us that he wanted to kill Osama bin Laden," said Khan. But he said when officers seized the pistol, the sword, a dagger and night-vision equipment, "our suspicion grew."
    I...Honestly don't know what to say. This guy either has some gigantic balls, or a lot of beer. Props to this man, we need more of him.

    The Pakistanis basically saved this guy's life. He had zero chance of finding UBL, and just about 100% chance of being kidnapped into a situation with dangerous results.

        It seems to me that a man that heavily armed, on a mission that insane to begin with, is very unlikely to be successfully kidnapped. Killed, probably, but not kidnapped. I just don't think anyone's going to be taking him alive. :p

            Update, this is just a small part of the article:

            More recently, Scott Faulkner said, his brother felt the U.S. government was not doing enough to bring bin Laden to justice, "and he felt that he was, as a Christian, not afraid -- that he could boldly step out and that doors would be opened for him."

            "And I agree with him," Scott Faulkner said. "The fact that he's been over there six times and has not received a scratch tells me that somebody's looking after him."

            Scott Faulkner said his brother "could blend in with the local population and go places that our military cannot go."

            "We have relationships with the Pakistani government: 'OK. You can go in this region or you can't go in that region,' whereas my brother could go about willy-nilly," he said. "He had a long beard. He looked like Taliban. When he

            wore his robe, he looked like Taliban. The only way you could tell he was not was when he spoke."
