A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
To commend and honor the members of the United States Armed Forces, including the United States Special Operations Forces, the United States national security agencies, and the United States intelligence community in conducting the successful operation against Osama bin Laden on Sunday May 1, 2011.


BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF OHIO
(THE SENATE CONCURRING):


       WHEREAS, On September 11, 2001, the United States was deliberately attacked by operatives from the al Qaeda terrorist organization without regard for the sanctity of life and with the utmost depravity. The attack left thousands dead in New York City, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania; and

       WHEREAS, Al Qaeda is a militant Islamist group that advocates global jihad against the West and the destruction of the state of Israel. Al Qaeda has been linked to multiple terrorist attacks against the United States and our allies, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the United States Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, and the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, as well as numerous other attacks around the world; and

       WHEREAS, The founder of al Qaeda and its leader during the course of its history of violence was Osama bin Laden who, as leader of al Qaeda's war of terror, advocated that civilians, including women and children, are legitimate targets of jihad; and

       WHEREAS, On May 1, 2011, forces from the United States, including members of the United States Special Operations Forces and national security agencies, attacked Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, killing him along with his son and several other al Qaeda operatives; and

       WHEREAS, The death of Osama bin Laden represents the culmination of nearly ten years of efforts by the United States Armed Forces and intelligence agencies as well as efforts of our allies to bring Osama bin Laden to justice for the death and destruction that he and his organization have wrought throughout the world. Those efforts, most of which are not known or recognized, are indicative of the courage, skill, determination, and honor of the men and women who have undertaken them on behalf of the citizens of the United States and freedom-loving people throughout the world; now therefore be it

       RESOLVED, That we, the members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of the state of Ohio, commend and honor the members of the United States Armed Forces, including the United States Special Operations Forces, the United States national security agencies, the United States intelligence community, and the bold leadership of the current and former Commanders in Chief leading up to and culminating in the successful operation against Osama bin Laden on Sunday May 1, 2011; and be it further

       RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to the President of the United States, the Secretary of the Department of Defense, and the news media of Ohio.
