A samurai sword-wielding American who waged his own personal quest to capture Usama bin Laden demanded Tuesday a share of the official $27 million reward following the terror chief’s death.

Gary Faulkner, a construction worker from Greeley, Colo., who came to international attention after being arrested in Pakistan last year, told ABC News he had served the Al Qaeda leader “up on a platter” for U.S. authorities.

“I had a major hand and play in this wonderful thing, getting him out of the mountains and down to the valleys … Someone had to get him out of there. That’s where I came in,” he said. “I scared the squirrel out of his hole, he popped his head up and he got capped.

“I’m proud of our boys, I’m very proud of our government … They were handed this opportunity on a platter from myself.”

    The U.S should pay this guy the entire amount. Our President should do it on live TV without any blurring of his face, this would take some of the heat off the real Intel group and might just confuse the Taliban. What’s 27 million to our government, I mean really who needs health care, better schools.
