U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is telling the US Armed Forces to recruit radical Islamists, who look similar to the slain terrorist, Osama bin Laden.
The BBC News reports that, "The US military is easing its uniform rules to allow religious wear including turbans, skullcaps, beards and tattoos, officials have said. Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and Wiccan soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen can now request exemptions to strict military uniform and grooming policies."
The Pentagon believes it can boost its lagging recruitment by encouraging jihadists, who look like Osama bin Laden, to join the U.S. Armed Forces.
According to the BBC, "The US military counts nearly 3,700 Muslims and 1,500 Wiccans among its ranks, according to statistics reported by NBC News, but it remains unclear how many will apply for dispensations."
And yes, aspiring Muslim terrorists can be all that they can be as a U.S. Marine.
