This guy's complaints are indeed ridiculous. No other country in the world permits its citizens to belong to another country's army.

Anti-Semitism? Try common sense.

While the U.S. does allow non-U.S. citizens into our military, what is bothersome about this story is that a person with so-called dual citizenship even had a security clearance in the first place. The U.S., to my knowledge, does not recognize "dual citizenship". If you can't renounce one citizenship or the other, then your loyalties are divided. I would apply that to anyone who has U.S. citizenship without formally renouncing their old citizenship status, because the oath of citizenship requires you to renounce allegiance to all other countries. People who maintain dual U.S. (insert other country here) citizenship have broken their U.S. citizenship oath, so should not get security clearance to begin with, in my opinion. I don't care what the other country is.

Well I served in the Israeli miltary and I am an American citizen. I'm not Jewish either. But I agree with the military on this one, better to be safe than sorry.
