Why doesn't the US military use Glocks?

While many PDs (I reckon the majority...) seem to use Glocks and also an lot of Fed Agencies do, the military seems to shun this gun for no obvious reason. I'm well aware of the fact that there are long-term and high quantity contracts for the M9, yet there are some SIGs and Kimbers (or other M1911 derivates) and HKs with the military and the special forces, but no Glocks...

Is it about the striker-firing issue? Or the missing external safeties? I'm pretty sure someone of those experts out there knows the answer...
