If Muslims must be in the U.S. military, they should at least be closely questioned about their views of jihad and allegiance to the U.S. Yes, they may lie, but a seasoned investigator will be able to spot signs of that.

“FBI, US military in hunt for one-time recruit planning ‘Fort Hood-style jihad,’” FoxNews.com, March 31, 2014:
EXCLUSIVE: The FBI is searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers,” FoxNews.com has learned.
The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, stated that a man identified as Booker had told friends of his “intention to commit jihad.” Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.
Both the FBI and the 902d Military Intelligence Group at Fort Leavenworth are involved in the hunt. “
