Osama's Would-Be Assassin a Tea Partier?
I sure hope so. I kinda love that guy.
Gary Brooks Faulkner.
"...The American man who was caught in Pakistan armed with a pistol, a 40-inch sword and night-vision goggles wanted to cut off Osama bin Laden's head as revenge for a personal loss he suffered on Sept. 11, 2001.
Gary Brooks Faulkner, a 52-year-old Californian construction worker, told cops there that he "wanted to decapitate Osama bin Laden," according to London's Daily Mail.
It's unclear what loss he suffered during the terrorist attacks.
An intelligence official in Chitral, who asked not to be identified, said Faulkner shouted: "Don't come closer to me or I'll open fire!" when approached.
Faulkner is also battling kidney disease, his family said. "He is dying of kidney disease," Kelli Faulkner, a relative, told The Post. (source)
First, let's get the ABSOLUTE idiots out of the way first...Like this person that started a "Gary Brooks Faulkner is an idiot" Facebook page. Now, the reasons for the idiocy weren't 'what did he think would happen to a white man in Pakistan' or 'if the entire US military can't find him how could he?" ...no, this is his reason:
"Gary Brooks Faulkner is an idiot. If some immigrant came to America with a sword threatening to kill the president, he would be executed."
Does this person think that OSAMA got elected somewhere? See, the names ARE close!
Then there's your run-of-the-mill, predicable idiots that are blogging away about Brooks being a Tea Party person and reporting that he was carrying "Christian Literature."
Like the AP would know Christian Literature if it fell from the sky...
But talk about the government of the people...
