Gary Faulkner, America’s Real Life Rambo. Mission: Kill Osama bin Laden

An American man caught in Pakistan illegally trying to enter Afghanistan on a mission to kill Osama bin Laden has been called “passionate” but not mentally ill by his brother.

Garry Brooks Faulkner was arrested on Sunday in north-west Pakistan with a sword, pistol and night vision goggles as he made an attempt to enter Afghanistan on a mission, he says, to eliminate the world’s most wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden, and his associates. “Hes not psychotic, hes not schizophrenic, he does not hear voices, he is a very passionate person,” brother Scott Faulkner said in Denver, Colorado.

Scott Faulkner told CNN he drove his brother to the airport last month, thinking that  it may have been the last time he saw his brother. Scott Faulkner also told CNN he believed others were working with his brother in an attempt to assassinate bin Laden. Those sources, Gary’s brother said, knew the location of bin Laden, and it was a team effort to take out the Al Qaeda leader, not a lone wolf operation.

Gary Faulkner was detained and taken to the city of Peshawar for questioning by intelligence officials in Pakistan. The American embassy continues to work to establish contact with the man on a mission to “decapitate” Osama bin Laden.

The Californian man had visited the region seven times before his capture, motivated by the September 11 2001 attacks, networking in the region in an attempt to locate bin Laden. With a $25 million bounty on his head, bin Laden is responsible for masterminding the efforts to attack and kill American citizens, allies and interests across the world
