Will Bush Reinstate The Draft?

I’ve been hearing more and more references to a secret plan of George W. Bush to reinstate military conscription after he gets re-elected. Many of his opponents are using the issue to try to encourage opponents of the draft to vote against Bush. I see that there’s even a web site devoted to this purpose.

I suspect that this is false, and if that’s the case I think it would be in Bush’s interest to come out with a strong and clear policy statement against reinstating military conscription.

Why leave the opposition with a weapon when you can take it from them?
