Probably looking for Cheech, and some of the good stuff. I hear the hashish is pretty killer over there.

What? That wasn’t Tommy Chong? It was a construction worker from California or Colorada hunting Osama bin Laden? With a samurai sword!?


Are you sure it’s not Tommy Chong?

My bad. They sure look alike though. Could be twins. Here, see for yourself:

All kidding aside. The bounty hunter’s name is Gary Faulkner. According to reports he truly has been arrested in Pakistan and all I’ve heard on the news is the fact that they caught him.

My question is, who is working to get him out so he can go again? Where do I donate to his legal defense fund or his “Get bin Laden Fund” for that matter?

Anyone?     Bueller?      Bueller?

H/T MAinfo who led me to the Right Truth for the story.

    In 2005 I think there was another American who tried to get into Syria, supposedly on his way to find bin Laden. He had some munitions of some sort. He was arrested and prosecuted I think, I can’t find the link now. They did not take that guy seriously. But this guy, Faulkner, they are taking him very serious.

    Interestingly, my maiden name is Faulkner, we do have relatives in California, but I don’t think I’m related to him, heh.

      Sure hope our state department is doing everything they can to get him out.

    Osama? Osmama’s not here, Man…..

      Hay Lipton, I think our congress is up there smoking the good stuff, unfortunately.

    Awww, thanks for the hat tip. I gotta give this guy some respect. He is a man of few words and major deeds.

    I heard about this on Savage on the way home from work. Apparently, the guy lost family on 9-11, and he has terminal kidney disease. He probably wanted to go out taking Osama with him. I honestly can’t begrudge him of that.

    • mnrobot June 15, 2010 at 8:06 pm

      WOW. God bless him. I heard this isn’t his first attempt. I heard it was like 5 or so. Freaking amazing. He needs to get embedded with the soldiers or at least get some military intel support, then again, I read that he was incredibly close. Maybe that’s why they arrested him. He was too close and the Pak’s are sheltering Obama er I mean Osama.

        You were right the first time….hee hee.

  • Bunni June 15, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    He sure does look like Cheech.
    Too funny. I didn’t know the story of his tragedies.
    If he had killed obama, I mean osama, we’d be giving him a parade ;-)
