Gary Brooks Faulkner was detained in Pakistan Tuesday, and is undergoing psychological tests today. He said he was there to assassinate Osama bin Laden. Some Pakistanis wondered if he was working for the US government or Blackwater. His brother defended him as a 'man on a mission.'
Gary Brooks Faulkner, a California construction worker, was detained in Pakistan carrying a sword, a pistol, and night vision goggles. He was hunting for Osama bin Laden near Chitral, Pakistan. Was Faulkner on the right track?
California construction worker told investigators he was on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
The US says it doesn't work with the security firm Blackwater in Pakistan, and the Pakistani government insists no Blackwater employees are working in the country. But many Pakistanis doubt those assertions, complicating US efforts to build trust.
