Good grief! We need Israeli intel to help us! This is insane! We need to increase Israeli intel with our own money. Good grief.

Sad, but not uncommon. It's not anti-semitism though, it's basic power competition within the armed forces. Someone wanted his position and made an argument to have him lose his position. The same argument was made against Presidential candidate Kennedy for being a Catholic having secret ties with the Vatican. Anti-semitism in the US is more a matter of black muslim anti-semites or leftists more than whites or US armed forces.

First sign of trouble, the guy goes to the Israeli press? What took us so long? He should be drummed out completely.

This Is Stupid!
Jewish or Not.... He's well trained. Let Him do the Job he has been trained to do!

One other thing... Since when is Israel our enemy?
Last Time I checked... They are on our side!

Any reserve major who goes public with a complaint about the level of his security clearance, implying racism, should probably be granted a very low level of clearance, if any.

Sounds like the guy has divided loyalties to me. Pick a country, Major, and go with it. Don't expect special security clearance handling just because you have been forthcoming.

Bravo! It is not uncommon for the Irish in American, many generations removed from Ireland to support the IRA. Nor is it uncommon for Jews to support Israel. For this simple, that there is some risk to US security, that I applaude this action. Would this be headlines, today, if it were an Islamic US Army Major?

We have no information on WHY this guy's security clearance was pulled. Typically these matters are not commented upon by those in authority. Obviously something happened beyond just being Jewish to get his clearance yanked. Him running to the foreign press at first opportunity does suggest that he might not have been trustworthy. Too bad, pal, holding a security clearance is not a civil right.

I would bet that there is more going on here than meets the eye. Perhaps that is why he went to the Israeli press before our own. Let's wait for the rest of the story...

I'm surprised that he got a clearance in the first place. When I was an MP one of the members of my squad married a West German. He was denied a security clearance because his wife had relatives living in East Germany.

He was thrilled, without a secuity clearance he couldn't be assigned guard duty. There are Mp companies that do nothing but watch the grass grow as they guard ammo dumps.

To hell with this dual citizenship crap. Renounce the Israeli citizenship and then maybe he wouldnt be considered an intelligence threat.

We should force all the jews in Israel voting in US elections decide to which country they owe allegiance. If they are not willing to renounce israeli citizenship, then eliminate their US voting rights. Are we goign to allow some Afghan or Iraqi to vote in our elections?

Judging from the article he has no ongoing military commitment to the Israeli army so it's not like he is a member of both armed forces. It's not like he does two weeks duty with the U.S. Army and then another two weeks with the Israeli Army. Unless there is some reason to doubt his loyalty that the article doesn't mention then I think that the Major should be reinstated to his duties. Being Jewish is not a sign of disloyalty.

His loss of clearance is fatal to his career as an intel type--he'll obviously never make it past Major. However, they didn't kick him out. If anyone were REALLY gunning for him, he'd have been Separated. Now, for him to go to the press with this is REALLY bad judgment. He shouldn't even get a Confidential clearance at this point.

Israeli hawk, Southern Christian here. I am totally pissed at the way the Arabists in the State Dept. are behaving but with this issue about this particular major, I really don't think that we all on this thread have enough info to be making solid comments from either the pro or anti-Israel contingents.

I would like to know much more before I'm willing to bash Rumsfeld and Co.

The major in question going immediately to press is not a favorable sign. IMHO

Would it be "anti-Muslim bigotry" if a Saudi military veteran with dual citizenship in Saudi Arabia and the US was forced out of his Army Intelligence post? I don't think so.

On the surface at least, it looks like this guy was a spy since he immediately went to the press, so I have no problem with him losing his clearance.

What bothers me about it, though, is I'm sure we have Muslim spies in the military, too (as well as other areas of the government); but we wouldn't rescind their clearances for fear of offending the Muslims. Kind of ironic that we get rid of the ally and harbor the enemy.
