Osama bin Laden hunter arrested in Pakistan

An American man armed with a pistol and a 40-inch sword was detained in northern Pakistan as he tried to cross the border into Afghanistan on a mission to avenge the 9-11 attacks and kill Osama bin Laden.

Police said Gary Brooks Faulkner, a 51-year-old construction worker, was also carrying Christian literature and a small amount of hashish.

Faulkner's sister, Deanna Faulkner, lives in Grand Junction, Colorado. She says her brother has polycystic kidney disease that has left him with only 9 percent kidney function and that he needs dialysis. She doesn't think his illness was his motivation in going to Pakistan.
