American claiming to be hunting bin Laden arrested

• AP
An American armed with a pistol and a 40-inch sword was detained in northern Pakistan and told investigators he was on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden, a police officer said Tuesday.

The man, identified as 52-year-old Californian construction worker Gary Brooks Faulkner, said he wanted to cross over into the nearby Afghan province of Nuristan because he had "heard bin Laden was living there", according to officer Mumtaz Ahmad Khan.

 Well...the mighty, all powerful, omnipotent U.S. Goverment hasen't had any luck so why not let a bounty hunter try.   .........oh.......I forgot......Washington dosen't really want to capture bin Laden....he makes a great boogyman, to use to scare the American sheeple into accepting very UnAmerican programs.

Oh, tacky. Myself I would have gone with chain-mail and a crusader tunic with a big red cross on it. Anachronism for it's own sake is less impressive to me than being period-appropriate.
