Bush’s “War Czar” Believes a Military Draft is “Worth Considering”
U.S. War Czar: Return of Military Draft Is Worth Considering
Here in this country, the White House’s new war czar Army Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute has said it is worth considering returning to a military draft.
Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute: “I think it makes sense to certainly consider it, and I can tell you, this has always been an option on the table, but ultimately, this is a policy matter between meeting the demands for the nation’s security by one means or another.”
Lt. General Lute made the comments in an interview with National Public Radio. President Bush picked Lute in mid-May as a deputy national security adviser with responsibility for ensuring efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan are coordinated with policymakers in Washington.
