Islamabad, July 18 (ANI): The American construction worker, who was nabbed while on a solo mission to hunt down and kill Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden last month, had warned during his interrogation that there were hundreds like him waiting to kill bin Laden.
Gary Brooks Faulkner, 51, who was detained in northern Pakistan while trying to sneak into Afghanistan's Nooristan province claimed during his interrogation that he was on a one-man quest to find and decapitate bin Laden in revenge for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Faulkner, who has been dubbed "Rambo" and the "American Ninja," was arrested with night-vision goggles, a pistol, dagger and 40-inch sword that may have been intended for use on Osama.
According to The Daily Times, the American Rambo had told one of his Pakistani interrogators that he was not alone in his mission, but many others were also trying to catch the dreaded terror warlord.
"So there are others like you? Working freelance, trying to catch Bin Laden?" Faulkner was asked.
"Yes, hundreds of them. There are many bounty hunters who are in Pakistan and are actually involved in such missions, and I kind of agree with them. They are doing God's work," replied the Osama hunter, who was released a week after detention due to his deteriorating health condition.
"The inspiration was more important to me than the money. Money was not the primary motivation. I wanted bin Laden alive and brought to justice just like Saddam Hussain," said Faulkner, who is said to have been suffering from severe kidney ailments. (ANI)
