US officials meet with 'Rocky Mountain Rambo'


Three members of the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan met with detained American Gary Faulkner in Islamabad earlier today. A State Department spokesperson could not say much about the meeting, citing privacy concerns, nor could he talk about Faulkner's health or whether the Embassy is arranging dialysis for him (his family has said that the Colorado man has kidney problems).

State Department spokesperson Mark Toner would not speculate on why Faulkner was in Pakistan, nor confirm whether he was in fact hunting Osama bin Laden

"It's unclear what he was doing in Pakistan and this is a legal matter for the Pakistanis to determine," Toner said.
