H. RES. 86
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
February 27, 2013
Mr. Rohrabacher (for himself, Mr. Sherman, Mr. Gerlach, Mr. Higgins, Mr. Poe of Texas, Mr. Salmon, Mr. Stockman, Mr. Hunter, Mr. Gohmert, Mrs. Bachmann, Mrs. Lummis, and Ms. Loretta Sanchez of California) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Dr. Shakil Afridi is an American hero and that he should be immediately released from custody by Pakistan.
Whereas Dr. Shakil Afridi is a hero to whom the people of the United States owe a debt of gratitude for his help in finding the hiding place of Osama bin Laden;
Whereas Dr. Afridi, a Pakistani physician, demonstrated the universally respected attributes of courage, dignity, and honor in aiding the United States in bringing to an end the reign of the terrorist leader Osama bin Laden who masterminded the September 11, 2001, attacks which murdered 3,000 United States citizens; and
Whereas Dr. Afridi is currently imprisoned by the Government of Pakistan, a deplorable situation which constitutes a hostile act by Pakistan against the United States and belies the notion that Pakistan is an ally in the war against terrorism: Now, therefore, be it
That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Dr. Shakil Afridi is an American hero and that he should be immediately released from custody by Pakistan.
