Jihadis in the U.S. military? “Security risks” found in Obama’s military recruitment of foreigners

Jihadis in the U.S. military? “Security risks” found in Obama’s military recruitment of foreigners:

Was there anything that Obama did that did not weaken the United States and make it more vulnerable to jihad attacks?

“Pentagon investigators find ‘security risks’ in Obama-era program to recruit foreigners into US military,” by Keith Griffith, Dailymail.com, August 2, 2017:

Defense Department investigators have found ‘potential security risks’ in a program that recruits foreigners into the US military in exchange for citizenship, according to a new report.

A classified report from the Pentagon’s inspector general found that the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program had potential monitoring and vetting problems, sources told Fox News.

MAVNI was launched in 2009 and has enrolled more than 10,000 foreign-born individuals without permanent residency status into the US military….

The program is currently not accepting new applicants as it undergoes a security review.

In September, the Department of Defense revoked the eligibility of MAVNI recruits for security clearances until the completion of their first enlistment and a positive security review – even if they had already been naturalized as US citizens.

Several naturalized MAVNI soldiers filed a lawsuit in response, saying that the order discriminated against them unconstitutionally on the basis of their national origin, and could cripple their careers by denying them security clearances.

It is unknown whether any of the security and infiltration concerns related to threats from ISIS or Al-Qaeda.
