                               RESOLUTION


 
 Honoring the brave men and women of the intelligence community of the 
 United States whose tireless and selfless work has protected America 
    from a terrorist attack for the past eight years, and for other 
                               purposes.

Whereas United States intelligence agencies are actively combating hostile 
        regimes and terrorists who plot to kill Americans or harm the interests 
        of the United States around the world;
Whereas through robust interagency teamwork, collaboration with international 
        partners, and ever more effective tools and tactics, the intelligence 
        community of the United States is keeping America safe;
Whereas the tireless efforts of the intelligence community are making a 
        difference in the lives of United States citizens, as evidenced by the 
        announcement on May 20, 2009, of disruption of a plot by radical 
        Jihadist terrorists in New York to bomb religious sites and shoot down 
        airplanes;
Whereas keeping terrorists, extremists, and radical Jihadists from freely 
        operating in our country, where they undermine American values and 
        threaten families, schools, and communities, must continue to be an 
        utmost national priority; and
Whereas the men and women of the intelligence community are professionals, who, 
        while either at home or across the globe and away from family, execute a 
        critical mission with quiet dedication and without the luxury or need of 
        public recognition, and continue to display selfless service in 
        protecting the United States and the American people: Now, therefore, be 
        it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) honors the brave men and women of the intelligence 
        community of the United States whose tireless and selfless work 
        has protected America from a terrorist attack for the past 
        eight years;
            (2) recognizes the tireless work, dedication, and 
        commitment that have allowed the intelligence community to 
        thwart many attacks directed against the United States and 
        allies of the United States;
            (3) expresses great pride that the intelligence community 
        stands ever vigilant to protect the United States; and
            (4) acknowledges that the intelligence community, the 
        allies of the United States, and all those who seek to 
        cooperate with the United States for justice, hope, and a 
        better life must know that the intelligence community has the 
        full faith and confidence of the American people and their 
        elected representatives in Congress.
                                 <all>
