That's funny... aren't members of the US military sworn in with an oath that contains the phrase
"preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States"?
I know you must know this.
Just posting as FYI for others after I found it on the internet.
The wordings of the current oath of enlistment and oath for commissioned officers are as follows:
"I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
(Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
"I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God."
(DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)
Yes, and I dont recall a disclaimer saying when its convenient or when it doesnt interfere with my oath to support Israel. Pollard sold out the US and the Israelis sold our most important classifed data to the russians. Thanks guys.
It was always my impression that immigrants to this country had to renounce their former citizenship to become US citizens. Whats with allowing the Israelis to maintain dual citizenship? I think they should have to decide to whom they are loyal. You cant be loyal to both your wife and mistrist.
