Dual-citizenship but not dual-loyalty to go with it? That doesn't make sense.

The Oath of Citizenship

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God. In acknowledgement whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature.

While I realize that the guy in question was born in the U.S., the principle remains the same. In fact, it's even worse to accept citizenship in another country if you're already American, as far as I'm concerned. You can't be a U.S. citizen AND a citizen of another country, and expect everyone to believe that all your loyalty is for the U.S. And anyone not TOTALLY loyal to the U.S. should not be trusted with U.S. secrets.
