To add to the comments made by Hillary Clinton, as posted by Fred 

A councilmember of a nearby town confided that the draft board was 
in place and that they had received *written instructions two years 
ago...* when the Pentagon quietly began a campaign to fill all 10,350 
draft board positions and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide.

Furthermore, "$28 million has been added to the 2004 Selective 
Service System (SSS) budget to prepare for a military draft that could 
start as early as June 15, 2005. SSS must report to Bush on March 
31, 2005 that the system, which has lain dormant for decades, is 
ready for activation. Please see website: 
http://www.sss.gov/perfplan_fy2004.html to view the SSS Annual 
Performance Plan - Fiscal Year 2004."

Furthermore, Pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills S 
89 and HR 163) would time the program so the draft could begin at 
early as Spring 2005.
