Answer
Stephen:
There is a security check before issuance of visas and also your subject to a security check at the port of entry.
If you provide all the documentation required by the US consulate it should be a pretty regular process. The US consulates in some countries such as India and China are very particular and require detailed documentation prior to issuance of visas.
Hope this helps.
