“The vast majority of those who serve in uniform and their civilian colleagues do so with great honor and integrity, but any extremist behavior in the force can have an outsized impact,” – Biden Defense Secretary wrote.
Lloyd Austin defined a series of actions that the department must take in order to weed our extremism.
– Review and change the extremism definition in the DoD.
– The servicemember checklists must include “training on potential targeting of service members by extremist groups and work with other federal departments agencies to create a mechanism by which veterans have the opportunity to report any potential contact with an extremist group should they chose to do so.”
– Standardization of screening questionnaire: “To solicit specific information about current or previous extremist behavior. 1) To gather actionable information in the short term to ensure that only the best-qualified recruits are selected for services, and 2) to clarify that any demonstrably false answers provided in response could form the basis for punitive action for fraudulent enlistment.”
– Commission an Extremism Study: “The Department will commission a study on extremist behavior within our Total Force, to include gaining greater fidelity on the scope of the problem.”
