Gary Faulkner is the American that has traveled to Pakistan 7 times since 9/11 in order to find Osama Bin laden. Faulkner claims to have been aided by locals on the ground and also the Pakistani army itself. Gary states that the media is mischaracterizing the Pakistani people that in fact they are very nice and always have been helpful to him. According to Gary’s brother Doctor Scott Faulkner Gary currently does not have nor did he ever have any mental illness. The media outlets have been in my opinion portraying Gary as a crazy American a religious fanatic on a mission from God. Although Gary is a religious man and was found with a Bible on him in Pakistan does that make him crazy? In my eyes it’s called conviction and determination. People are not used to someone carrying out a plan when they say they will so Gary automatically gets labeled a crazy a loon. Granted he has the conviction a lot of wish we had, but do not fault a man for this. When 9/11 happened did we not all want to go to Afghanistan and find and kill Bin Laden well Gary did 7 times. I think the question everyone should be asking is not if Gary is crazy but how did he do it. Did you ever think it would be even remotely possible to board a plane fly into Pakistan get off the plane and start looking for Bin Laden, 7 times? And It‘s not like he stayed in the big cities either he went deep into tribal areas into no man’s land. If Gary was able to do this 7 times you are trying to tell me the CIA or Military Special Ops can’t get in there. I know what I am saying sounds simple but a supposed crazy man from Colorado was able to do it 7 times. If it’s true that our military is doing everything possible to get Bin Laden then I would say Gary Faulkner is the equivalent to our entire U.S Military minus drone attacks. To bad we don’t have more Americans with the same type of Conviction. This in no way is meant to be an insult to our men and women in uniform but maybe the politics behind the scenes and the strategy in place need to be changed. Please leave your comments.
