A Colorado man is being questioned by Pakistani intelligence officials after he was found near the Afghan border carrying a sword, pistol and night-vision goggles on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
Pakistani police say construction worker Gary Brooks Faulkner hasn't been charged with wrongdoing after telling investigators he was angry over the Sept. 11 terror attacks. They say when they asked him about his chances of tracking down the al-Qaida leader, Faulkner replied God is with him and he is "confident" he will be successful.
Faulkner's brother, Scott, compared his sibling to Rambo, saying that tracking down bin Laden, "became his passion." Scott Faulkner says his brother sold all his tools to finance his trip and was prepared to die in Pakistan.
He says he hopes Gary Brooks Faulkner, who has been in and out of Colorado prisons, isn't charged with a crime.
