Default Oh no ...

Has our fearless leader been captured?


Police in northern Pakistan say they have arrested an American who said he was on a solo mission to kill al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

Authorities say they found the man armed with a tacticool 1911, a sword, a dagger and night vision equipment in the Chitral region near the Afghan border. Police say the man was trying to cross into Afghanistan's Nuristan region because he told them that bin Laden was hiding there.

Authorities in Chitral have identified the man as JD, a construction worker from Pacific Northwest.

They say he arrived in Chitral on June 3 and was staying at a local hotel. Officials there had assigned him a security guard, a step that is quite common for foreigners in remote parts of Pakistan. Pakistani authorities began searching for JD after the guard noticed that he had disappeared.

Afghanistan's Nuristan region and Pakistan's Chitral region are among several rumored hiding spots for the al-Qaida leader. Osama bin Laden's whereabouts have remained a mystery since the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

A U.S. embassy spokesman says Pakistani authorities have informed American officials of the arrest of a U.S. citizen.

The dude they captured was in his 50's. JD's much younger than that.

(But please check in, JD, just in case...)

American arrested in Pakistan while on solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden, authorities say - McClatchy Network - Kentucky.com

LOL - I thought you made this whole thing up dog.

While I am impressed with the guy's desire to get it done himself, and $25 Million would go a LONG ways in today's economy, I fear that is not the kit I would have laid out for myself on such a mission.

And besides, the story makes no mention of a long gun and I don't speak any halalala dialect.
