Draft rumors refuse to die
MSNBC |
"The President, the Secretary of Defense and any number of senior lawmakers have all insisted that a draft is not necessary - nor in the works... In the past year, some lawmakers have urged that a draft for military service be reintroduced, most notably New York Rep. Charlie Rangel and South Carolina Sen. Fritz Hollings, both Democrats, who have sponsored bills to that effect, primarily as a way to protest against war in Iraq. Though both bills (S. 89 and H.R. 163) remain stuck in committee - and Sen. Hollings was unable even to garner any cosponsors for his bill - one widely forwarded e-mail letter claims the administration is 'quietly trying to get these bills passed now' so the draft could begin as early as the spring of 2005."
