Bin Laden Hunter Pleased Not to Have to Hunt Bin Laden Anymore
Gary Faulkner, Greeley’s famed Osama bin Laden hunter, is overjoyed about the death of the terrorist leader and said it means he won’t have to return to Pakistan.
Last June, Faulkner was arrested in Pakistan, on a quest to hunt down and kill or capture bin Laden. He was armed with a pistol, sword and night-vision equipment when arrested in the mountains near Islamabad. It was in the foothills north of Islamabad where Navy Seals hit bin Laden’s million-dollar compound Sunday and killed him.
"I was in those mountains when I was arrested," Faulkner said at his Greeley apartment Monday. "I think maybe I flushed him down out of the mountains into the foothills."
