Solo Osama hunter wants part of bin Laden bounty
I thought we could use some comic relief :spray: :rofl:



GREELEY, Colo. (AP) The Colorado construction worker who flew last year to Pakistan on a one-man mission to hunt down Osama bin Laden says he played a part in bin Laden'sdeath.

Gary Faulkner said Wednesday he'd like one-quarter of the $25 million reward that was offered for hunting down bin Laden. He said he'd use it for his nonprofitfoundation.

Faulkner was found last year in the woods of northern Pakistan armed with a pistol, sword and night-vision goggles. The Greeley, Colo., man says he believes he had a hand in forcing bin Laden out of the mountains where he supposedly washiding.

3. Here he is! PIC
...Gary Faulkner of Greeley, dubbed the "Rocky Mountain Rambo," was deported in June after trying to cross into Afghanistan during his 11th attempt to track down bin Laden. He was carrying a pistol, samurai sword, night-vision goggles and a map. Navy SEALs killed bin Laden early Monday in his compound in Abbotabad, north of Islamabad.

"I was in those mountains when I was arrested," Faulkner told the Greeley Tribune on Monday. "I think maybe I flushed him down out of the mountains into the foothills."

He told ABC News, "I had a major hand and play in this wonderful thing, getting him out of the mountains and down to the valleys. ... Someone had to get him out of there. That's where I came in. I scared the squirrel out of his hole, he popped his head up and he got capped."...

6. Lol, kind of a loveable whacko
What he doesn't realize is, if he had actually run across bin laden and his henchmen, they'd have had to strain his remains to find his fingerprints.

4. I also want a part of the bounty for speaking poorly of Bin Laden on DU.
Bin Laden obviously became enraged by my comments and become sloppy.

8. (((sigh)))
Yeah, he lives a few blocks east of my place. We're also home to Terry Lakin, birther ex-soldier. And Ken Buck. And balloon boy flew right overhead.

If it weren't for my fantastic friends and deep roots, I'd be outta here. But I'd miss the awesome trout fishing around here . .
