Gary Faulkner, Osama Bin Laden Hunter, Back in 'Good Ol' U.S. of A.'

While undertaking such a mission -- traveling to hostile territory, with no training, to find the most wanted man on the planet -- may have seemed ridiculous to many, Faulkner's brother said he had made several trips to the area to reconnoiter bin Laden's possible location and believed he had found the cave where he believed the al Qaeda leader was hiding.

Scott Faulkner said last week that his brother had "stood at its entrance, possibly within 100 feet," of the cave.

While Faulkner was likely aware of the hefty $25 million reward for information leading to bin Laden's arrest, Martin said the cause was more important to his brother-in-law.

"The inspiration was more important to him than the money," Martin said.

Since his arrest, a battery of Facebook groups popped up in Faulkner's honor, including Faulkner for President, Gary Brooks Faulkner Is My Favorite Working Class Ninja and Gary Faulkner, American Patriot.
