An American Foreign Legion?

DOD plans to recruit temporary immigrants who've been here as little as two years.  I assume that means kids with student visas and temporary H-1-b workers.  Citizenship can follow in six months.  The program's meant to bring in native Arabic speakers and other translators.  Says one member of the military “[N]ow that we have soldiers as translators, we are able to trust more, we are able to accomplish the mission with more accuracy.”

If one considers the Muslim doctrine of taquiyya, is this really a good idea?
