Gary Brooks Faulkner; Remember Him?

Gary Brooks FaulknerDoes anyone remember the name Gary Brooks Faulkner? Probably not. He was the lone American caught in Pakistan in June of 2010. Why was he there? He had taken it upon himself to hunt down Osama bin Laden.

Having suffered a loss from the attacks on 9-11, Gary felt it was his duty to carry out the hunt and kill bin Laden. Feelling as though the US government wasn’t doing enough, and that they were looking in all the wrong places, he armed himself with a sword, night-vision goggles and a book of Christian sayings and writings. It wan’t enough to just hunt him down and kill him, Faulkner wanted to behead Osama.

The scary thing about this story is just how close Gary was. Being dubbed the ‘American ninja,’ Faulkner seems to have been working with better intel than the guys that do it for a living. He was certainly on a better trail than what was being chased at the time.

Hopefully, for Faulkner, the news is sweeter than honey knowing that not only is bin Laden dead, but also just how close he was.
