                               RESOLUTION


 
   Honoring Navy SEALs Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe, Petty 
  Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, and Petty Officer 1st Class Julio 
 Huertas for their heroic actions in the capture of Ahmed Hashim Abed, 
   the mastermind behind of one of the most notorious crimes against 
                           Americans in Iraq.

Whereas in 2004, four Americans working for a security company in Iraq were 
        ambushed and killed;
Whereas their bodies were set on fire, mutilated, dragged through the streets, 
        and hung from a bridge in Falluja, Iraq;
Whereas three United States Navy SEALs, Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe, 
        Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, and Petty Officer 1st Class 
        Julio Huertas, successfully captured Ahmed Hashim Abed, the alleged 
        mastermind behind the killings; and
Whereas Mr. Abed spearheaded a number of other insurgent attacks against members 
        of the United States Armed Forces and murdered innocent Iraqi civilians: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives honors Petty Officer 
2nd Class Matthew McCabe, Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, and 
Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas for their heroic actions in 
capturing one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq.
