I had my interview today also. After waiting so long for a simple military naturalization which most get it done within 6 months. I knew it was too good to be true to receive an interview notice in the first place.
After the pathetic exam, I got a N-652 with a check next to B): A decision cannot yet be made about your application.
The interviewer explained that a security/background check was pending, she was also expecting another file from national records and since I requested a name change, a federal judge needs to be present, and the first such ceremony is on 9/11/2006. I guess the security check takes quite a long time if you are not lucky. Yet again, I got tangled with another background check and this time I don't know how long I will have to wait. I just gave up on this thing. There is no point to keep hopes up high with the immigration business. I am "beyond" the words "I am sick of waiting."
What a joke. I am ready to go catch a bullet within 11 months in the sandbox, they are busy (NOT!) on getting a background check done. One strict thing on my will before I leave for Iraq is going to be that I, under no circumstance, will ACCEPT posthumous citizenship from this country!
