Bin Laden Hunter was sent by God

A US man was detained in Pakistan recently while on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden.

Construction worker Gary Brooks Faulkner [50] said God prompted him in a dream to travel to Pakistan in search of al Qaeda's leader. His brother Scott Faulkner said that catching bin Laden was his passion.

The detained man is a devout Christian with a prison record who has been to Pakistan at least six times, said relatives and acquaintances who initially laughed when he told them that he wanted to kill Osama bin Laden.

Scott Faulkner said: "Our military has not been able to track Osama down yet. It's been 10 years. It's easier as a civilian, dressed in the local dress, to infiltrate the inside, the local people, gain their confidence and get information and intel that you couldn't get as an American soldier, Navy SEAL, whoever you might be."

Gary Faulkner, of Colorado, arrived in the Pakistani town of Bumburate on June 3 and was assigned a police guard, as is common for foreigners visiting remote parts of the country. When he left a hotel without informing the guard, officers began looking for him, police official Mumtaz Ahmad Khan said. Faulkner was found on Sunday in a forest.

"We initially laughed when he told us that he wanted to kill Osama bin Laden." But, when officers found weapons, including a 40-inch sword and a pistol, as well as night-vision equipment, "our suspicion grew", the police official said.

The Police would like also like to speak to this individual pictured below, who is believed to have made contact with Faulkner during his time in Bumburate.

Who do you think is fronting the bin Laden reward money? Did you think the U.S. Govenment could afford that now?
