'Bin Laden' Hunter Gary Faulkner Tells Reporters At LAX He Has Unfinished Business
Los Angeles-born "Bin Laden hunter" Gary Faulkner was back in his hometown this week, landing at LAX en route to his Colorado home after he was arrested in Pakistan, allegedly for carrying a gun, a sword and a special bullet for Osama Bid Laden.
He was released without being charged, and he ended up in front of the cameras Wednesday at the L.A. airport. Here's what he told reporters:
"We don't get scared by people like this, we scare them ... We're going to take care of business" with Bin Laden.
"There's some bad people out there," he said. " ... Not for much longer."
The 52-year-old said he has a failing kidney and needs dialysis. His brother has said he does not need a psychiatrist.
