The out-of-work construction worker from Greeley was detained June 13 in the woods of northern Pakistan after being found with a pistol, a sword and night-vision equipment.

Faulkner told officials he was out to kill the al-Qaida leader.

But on Monday, the 50-year-old Faulkner said he wanted to return to the United States with bin Laden in tow and alive.

Faulkner has said the Pakistanis treated him well and administered dialysis to treat his kidney disease.
