American detained in Pakistan had Sights on Bin Laden
This guy is so awesome that I really don't have words for it.
Seriously, this is the kind of do-it-yourself, entrepreneurial spirit that made America great.
Just think of the movie that this would had made had he been successful! I mean, you've got nuts like Frank Dux who just fantasize about doing this sort of thing, and then you've got this guy who really goes out and walks the walk. Too bad his plan was completely absurd.
All joking aside, I hope that he makes it back to the US okay- he evidently has a health condition. I wonder if the Pakistani authorities will charge him with anything. It looks like he at least threatened the police when they showed up. Also, I'm sure that the Pakistani government isn't crazy about individuals wondering around tribal areas looking to knock someone off, even Bin Laden. On top of all that, he had hashish- which probably made his whole scheme seem a lot more feasible.
According to the article, he was packing a sword. I wonder if he had read "Street Sword."
