Actually it's not stupid at all. In fact, I would think that under the current threat conditions that ALL armed forces personnel of dual citizenship, whether it be Israel, UK, or whatever, would be screened very closely. It's not racism or anti-semitism. It is about security. And, since this individual chose to release this and complain to the world (via Israel) press, I see no reason why he should have a security clearance at all.
Also, am I not mistaken, but is this the same officer who went AWOL a few months back and was found in Israel? If this is the case, then not only does he need to be stripped of security clearances, but also be courtmartialed.

Among the many stupid things our Congress has done, the granting of dual citizenship to certain Americans has got to be one of the dumbest! You can't serve two masters. How does the Army know which side one of its soldiers will take when two competing nations have policies that collide and are in conflict? This guy should renounce one or the other of his "dual" loyalties".
