Colorado Man’s Rambo-Style Mission To Kill Osama Fails

Pakistan Bin Laden HunterA middle-aged-dad-type from Colorado was arrested in the mountains of Pakistan, where, armed with a sword, pistol and night-vision goggles, he was on a solo go-for-broke mission to find and kill Osama bin Laden. Amazingly, he made it pretty far, reaching the isolated region where Osama is rumored to be hiding. Las Vegas Sun reports:

“A lot of kids grow up and say, `I want to be Rambo,’ you know? Well, he is,” said Gary Faulkner’s brother, Scott, 43.

“He’s as normal as you and I,” Scott Faulkner said. “He’s just very passionate, and, as a Christian, he felt, when Osama mocked this country after 9/11, and it didn’t feel like the military was doing enough, it became his passion, his mission, to track down Osama, and kill him, or bring him back alive.”

Scott Faulkner said his brother sold all his tools to finance his trip and was prepared to die in Pakistan. He also said his brother took no weapons and had a valid visa for Pakistan. Scott Faulkner hoped his brother wouldn’t be charged with a crime.

Gary Faulkner arrived June 3 in the town of Bumburate and stayed in a hotel there. The Greeley, Colo., man was assigned a police guard, as is common for foreigners visiting remote parts of Pakistan.

When he checked out without informing police, officers began looking for him, according to the top police officer in the Chitral region, Mumtaz Ahmad Khan. Faulkner was found late Sunday in a forest.

“We initially laughed when he told us that he wanted to kill Osama bin Laden,” Khan said. But when officers seized the weapons and night-vision equipment, “our suspicion grew.” He said the American was trying to cross into the nearby Afghan region of Nuristan.

    What a pathetic, uneducated, Toby Keith minded GOON. Osama was the scapegoat needed the scare the peasants into submission, that freak did NOT orchestrate 9/11. By the way, tell this punk about Real Christians, like William Cooper who predicted that Osama would be used as the scapegoat for attacking Manhattan, and he predicted this on June 28,2001 almost three months before it actually happened !! What an insane military minded brainwashed GOON this old geezer truly is.

    • Hmm…

      Seriously. You had me until you used “military minded” as an insult. I realize you're all a bunch of kooks, but come on..

  • Alech

    That is a very unorthodox kind of normal if you ask me.

  • Adaugeo

    9/11 was a fraud but even if it wasn't and the country really was trying to find Osama, why did they stop him? One citizen willing to die for a cause after two wars one being the longest in our nation's history were supposedly started over Osama and we stop people trying to find him of their own free will. Just goes to show you they don't want to find him and don't want us to either.

    It's like that lady who decided to cure her breast cancer by thinking positive thoughts after she heard Oprah raving about The Secret.
    This is what happens when the people buy completely in to the propaganda they are fed.

    Osama, baloney, the whole thing is phony…..

    This is the greatest thing I have read in a long time.

      If he really wanted to kill the person responsible for 9/11, he should have tried to kill George Bush. Osama had nothing to do with it. Haven't you read the article on this sight which talked about CIA agents dressing up like Osama and making the videos. I use to work in building 1 of the World Trade Center, lost friends, and had to relocate to another state to get work. It is a fact that Osama Bin-Laden was trained by George Bush sr. when he was the CIA Director, The Bin-Laden family funded George W Bush oil company, and George W. Bush brother was the head of security for the world trade centers when 9/11 occured. What makes you think the US Military and the CIA couldn't find Osama if they really wanted to.

        Has it escaped your attention that George W Bush is a bumbling idiot?

          The bumbling idiot meme sure makes for a great cover, doesn't it?
          Has it ever occurred to you that GW Bush doesn't call his own shots, but does as he is directed to do?
          Or do you suppose that idiocy just bumbled it's way into the White House.

          Geez people, get smart already.

    Man I misread the headline. I thought some nut was after Obama!
    Would have made more sense.

      So did I.

    I seriously doubt “He’s as normal as you and I,” should be put on some downer meds. Or at least should be told Osama is Make-believe, like Elves, Gremlins and Eskimos, to paraphrase Homer Simpson.

    Um, dude. Rambo was a M-O-V-I-E.

    I know Greeley is wicked boring, but still. If you need excitement, have a beer and go skiing pantless in Loveland or something.

    I saw this guy on cnn or something yesterday. takes a lot more guts than most of us possess to do what he did. much respects to 'em.

    though I still think 9/11 was an inside deal :(

  • http://www.thecarnivalnoir.com Haystack

    How cool would it have been if Osama was finally captured by some random dude from Colorado?

    Those of you who are protesting Osama bin Laden's innocence seem to want to ascribe almost godlike power and cunning to George W. Bush of all people….but maybe I'm just “misunderestimating” him.

  • Ken

    Gary's personal account is a bit different from this written one.

  • Jiggs

    People like this are exactly what's wrong with this country. Passion and courage with absolutely no discernment. Bid Laden isn't even wanted by the FBI in connection with 9-11. Why? No evidence he had anything to do with it. No evidence Saddam had anything to do with it. No evidence the Taliban had anything to do with it. All this knucklehead did was reinforce the government myth that 19 Arabs who could barely speak English outsmarted the most technologically advanced nation on Earth. Complete and utter bullshit. “Rambo” has unwittingly set the patriot movement back 10 years. Nice job.

    This is what happens when you cancel shows like Mcgyver and Bog the Bounty Hunter. When will the Networks LEARN!!!!

    • http://www.thecarnivalnoir.com Haystack

      “Hunt for bin Laden” would make a good reality show. *g*

      • Namelesswon

        yeh they could call it America's Got Assasins. Each week loner nutcases will go through specialist weapons training with guest “mentors”, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Jesse Ventura, The dude of “Cops”, then they get voted off after various tests like wilderness survival in a closed off kmart, making weapons from cereal, stealth computer games playing, succesfully alienation of friends family and co-workers on a comparative scale, free running across stationary traffic, making dolls out of human byproducts etc.. . The final show is a head to head where they both get dropped somewhere in Turkemenistan and the closest one to killling anything remotely resembling “an Osama wins”.

        ATTENTION NETWORKS YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST SO I'M COPYWRITING THIS BITCH ANY ACTION FIGURES, ENDORSEMENTS, PILOTS ETC.. HAVE TO GO THROUGH ME.

  • Valis

    I’m sure he meant well, but it’s too bad he didn’t do a little research before setting out on his mission. First of all, he would have learned that Osama is most likely a patsy, not the “mastermind” of 9/11. Simply looking up the reason why 9/11 isn’t even mentioned on the FBI’s Most Wanted profile on Osama would have given him a clue.
    There’s also been scattered reports that Osama is already dead. Even if he did manage to kill him, does he seriously believe the U.S. government would let the world know that their favorite boogeyman distraction, their greatest excuse to loot the trillion dollar treasure under Afghanistan has been eliminated?

    • http://www.thecarnivalnoir.com Haystack

      If they eliminated him, they'd be shouting it from the rooftops.

      If that guy did, maybe not. *g*
