Muslims in the military

Reader comment on item: Another Islamist Soldier Turns Terrorist in Texas

Submitted by Florence Cohen (United States), Aug 2, 2011 at 10:35

I agree that all Muslims need "additional security" and should not automatically be blocked from joining the military. He stated "not all Muslims are terrorists" but then went on to prove that he is.

But why did the military charge him with child pornography and allow him a reason to suggest the army was trying to impugn him when all his other actions were enough to put him away.

Why are uniforms with Ft Hood patches allowed to be sold to anyone?
